Red Telephone Books is a publishing company based in Manchester, UK. We publish great new fiction for Young Adults.


Our name derives from a song contained on Love’s Forever Changes album. It describes the system which facilitated direct communicationbetween the leaders of Russia and the United States during the Cold War.  We intend that this classic cipher of vital communication will reflect the quality and energy of our published output.

We publish just a few books a year and look for something a little different.

We accept unsolicited manuscripts but are not always open for submission. Check our submissions page. Follow us on Twitter, or Facebook or join our mailing list for up to the minute news of publications and calls for submission.
