everyone has a story. 
what's yours?

At Vertical, we know the book-writing process like the back of our hands - and we're always on the lookout for authors, both new and experienced, who have a good story to tell.

Reading a Book

We consider book ideas – biographies, autobiographies, illustrated histories, club histories and events and more – from all areas of sport. 


Our authors come from very different backgrounds. Some are professional athletes, others are journalists but many are simply enthusiastic fans who have an interesting idea and can write a good story that other sports lovers will enjoy reading.


If you believe you have a good idea for a book, please send a proposal for us to consider. Your proposal should contain the following aspects:

  • A description of the book's subject matter and content.

  • Your anticipated word count for the entire book.

  • Details of any photographs and illustrations you have that can be used in the book.

  • Details of any books or material you have had published previously (if this is your first book, please include a sample chapter)

Email your proposal to or use the CONTACT form below to get in touch with us. Please note, in busy periods it may take us up to one month to assess your proposal and reply to you.

'No Bull' and others

A prolific stable of sports books, always conveying real passion and insight. Vertical Editions were good enough to publish my three offerings some years ago - and in a very short time publisher Danny Hall has already opened an exciting new chapter with some great reads.


Vertical Editions enabled me to turn an idea that had been floating around in my mind into a concrete reality. Danny Hall has been always available, positive and always hugely knowledgeable. I unreservedly recommend Vertical Editions to any budding author.


Vertical Editions have a real feel for books on all sports, not just football, and that makes for a great layout and look for each one of their publications. Their service to the customer is second-to-none, and I am looking forward to my next

project with them. 


Working with Vertical Editions was a pleasure from start to finish. Danny was always there when I needed any guidance and provided me with updates at every stage. I would definitely recommend  Vertical Editions if you have got a great idea for a book!

don't just take our word for it...
