Submitting your Work

 

To fully evaluate your work, we need to review your completed manuscript (no proposals) 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. We are not accepting children’s books or poetry at this time.

Please be aware of our two publishing models: traditional and co-publishing. Take a look here before you submit.

YOU MUST BE 18 OR OLDER TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK.  WE DO NOT ACCEPT PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED WORK. WE DO NOT ACCEPT PROPOSALS.

Please fill out the form below and attach your completed manuscript (doc/docx files preferred, pdf files accepted) and illustrations, if a children’s book.  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. 

We will respond after review if your work is accepted for publishing consideration. We will not respond if it is not accepted. Regardless of the outcome, we wish you the very best of luck and thanks for submitting.
