This is NOT a normal school day.


Jess, Nadia, Tomma and Ash are running late for school but they don't expect to be taken 100 years back in time!  


Going back in time has its risks. Can the friends make it back home or will they be stuck in time forever?

Directors of Hashtag Press: Helen Lewis and Abiola Bello

Hashtag Press was officially established in October 2016 by book PR Helen Lewis and children's/ young adults author Abiola Bello (co-founders of The Author School) building on decades of combined experience in publishing, PR, writing, research, media and journalism. We didn't print our first book till May 2017 and have been going strong ever since.

Having worked with hundreds of authors since the start of The Author School, we recognised a niche in the industry for an honest, trustworthy, high calibre, publishing house.

Hashtag Press is a collaborative/ hybrid publishing house. We publish everything from picture books to middle-grade, YA, adult fiction and non-fiction. We are passionate about books with strong female characters, diversity and inclusion and when we read your book, we want to fall in love with the characters, laugh or cry (or both!). We have different tastes. Helen is a more non-fiction, psychological thriller kind of girl and Abiola is obsessed with YA/ middle-grade and chick lit, so we both need to love your book.

We will consider EVERY submission that we receive. We will reply to everyone within three weeks. But if it's a no, don't give up! Consider joining us at The Author School for more help and guidance, maybe publish through INK! Or invest in a good edit and then re-send back to us.We won't just leave you stranded. 

We are not just looking for great books, we are also looking for fantastic authors who will work hard to push their book. We are very passionate about bringing new voices into the publishing world.

We can't wait to hear from you! If you have any questions please do email us at submissions@hashtagpress.co.uk
