Tention Publishing is a new independent publishing house whose mission is to bring quality writing to the international market. Our imprint is Tention Books.
Our business is discovering and publishing new talent, and we like to work with individuals who intend to pursue a serious career in writing. We are a small commercial publisher, not a vanity publisher.
Tention Books is interested in most types of commercial literary fiction for adults and young adults, and we also publish works on psychology, philosophy and related fields. We do not consider for publication other non-fiction works, children’s books, short stories, poetry or plays. From 1 December 2012 we will be handling all submissions electronically via this website.
Details of our first book, published in July 2012, are set out below. Written by John Dolan, 'Everyone Burns' is a crime novel set on the Thai island of Samui.

He opens a drawer of his desk, casually takes out a revolver,
flicks off the safety catch and points it at my head.
He says almost sorrowfully,
"Do you believe me to be a gangster, Mr Braddock?"
It is January 2005 and the charred remains of two Europeans have been
discovered on the Thai island of Samui.
Local Police Chief Charoenkul, sidelined by his superiors, enlists the
reluctant David Braddock, a burnt-out private detective, to assist
in an 'unofficial' investigation.
But Braddock has problems of his own, including an affair with the same
Police Chief's wife ...
Peppered with irreverent humour and some pithy comments on everyday
life in the Land of Smiles, Everyone Burns is much more than a crime
novel. It is also a carefully-crafted psychological study of an
anti-hero for our time.
