Buyer's Guide

The Bookseller Buyer's Guides list thousands of titles coming out in the UK in the next 6 months. They include seasonal highlights and best-seller predictions picked by industry experts.  

There are two editions of Buyer’s Guide per year: Spring which includes new titles coming out February to July (inclusive) and Autumn which covers August to January (inclusive).

“I couldn’t do without the Buyers’ Guides. They give me a great overview of the season to get an holistic view of what is forthcoming to plan space in the shop.  Without them we would definitely miss out on some of the smaller publishers, and potentially underestimate potential bestsellers.  For communicating information to part time staff, they are invaluable.”

Adam Hewson, Hewson Books (Kew and Sheen Bookshops).



The submissions database for autumn 2020 is now closed.

We'll let you know automatically when and how to submit and advertise so that you'll never miss the chance to include your titles.
Why not get your whole team to add themselves to the list, too?
Once you've signed up, we'll send a couple of information emails so that everyone has the relevant submission guidelines and deadlines. Submissions are free and it's always a good idea to have more than one person in the loop.
