Get Into Print with Kazoo and RTÉ!
Do you have the next international bestseller hidden away in a drawer? Fancy yourself as EL James or Roddy Doyle? This is your chance to step into the limelight!
Kazoo Independent Publishing Services is teaming up with the RTÉ Guide and the John Murray Show to offer you the opportunity to publish your book and make it big on the literary scene.
With independent authors now regularly hitting the Amazon bestseller lists, self-publishing has become hugely attractive to writers who want to earn higher royalties, retain the rights to their work and take advantage of social media to promote their books.
The Kazoo team has over 50 years’ experience in trade publishing and we’ll help you join the ranks of successful indie authors by turning your manuscript into a professionally produced book and eBook. Your work will be edited, typeset and printed to the highest publishing-industry standards and you’ll work with a designer to create a unique and eye-catching cover.
So send us your entry and you could soon be seeing your name on the cover of your bestseller!
- Professional cover design, including provision of cover image
- Professional typesetting and interior layout design
- Consultation with editor
- Upload to all eBook retailers, including Amazon and the iBookstore
- Listing on Nielsen Bookscan
- 200 printed copies of the book

Entrants must submit an original, unpublished manuscript of up to 100,000 words in length. This can be fiction or non-fiction, for children or adults, but it cannot be an illustrated book. Your submission must be a completed manuscript; we want to see the whole book!
To enter, please fill out the form HERE and upload your manuscript in MS Word format.
Do not send a printout of your manuscript as entries received by post will not be accepted and cannot be returned.
The closing date for receipt of entries is Sunday, 30 June 2013 at midnight. Manuscripts received after this date will not be accepted.
The winner will be selected by an independent panel of judges – bestselling author and director Ferdia Mac Anna, bestselling author Sarah Webb and Bob Johnston of the Gutter Bookshop, and will be announced on the John Murray Show in August 2013.
