Submitting your Work

To fully evaluate your work, we need to review your completed manuscript (no proposals please) and consider you and your writing experience, your marketing plans, and your ability to collaborate with our team. We only review completed manuscripts with a preferred target range of 20,000 – 90,000 words. Children’s books may be much smaller of course, and must include text and ALL illustrations for consideration. Email illustrations for children’s books to submissions@koehlerbooks.com or use a file transfer service if the files are large.

YOU MUST BE 18 OR OLDER TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK.

Please fill out the form below and attach your completed manuscript.  You may also email your query letter (including your bio, marketing plan, audience, genre, number of words, previous book sales) and manuscript to submissions@koehlerbooks.com.
