Do you have a story that kid’s would LOVE to read? We may just want to publish it. (After all, BiblioKid Publishing loves to read a good book just as much as the next publisher.)
But before you send anything our way, be sure to check out our submissions policy below. And if you’re new to children’s book writing, review how to write a kid’s book with our sister company, Journey to KidLit!
About Our Submissions:
What kind of publisher are you?
We are a full-service hybrid publisher that works exclusively with children’s book authors and illustrators. What does that mean?
It means, we partner together to create your book. Including:
- Editing the story text
- Finding an illustrator/Working as the art director to finalize the illustrations
- Print set-up/creating the initial print-run
- Entering the books into international online-distribution and retail distribution in both the USA & Canada
- Planning a marketing strategy that will work best for your book
How do you get started?
In order to be considered for publication, you’ll need to submit your story to us for review. From there, we’ll create a plan and schedule a call to go over your goals, as well as, pricing and estimated timeline.
What is your pricing structure?
Like books, there isn’t a one-price fits all for our submissions. Once a book has been submitted for consideration, we will have a discussion with the author about their goals for the book, as well as, budget restrictions.
Price ranges between $4,000-$9,000 and is dependent on number of books needed initially on hand, cost of illustration, type of book, marketing, etc.
Will you help with marketing?
Yes! Marketing is essential for getting a book sold. Not only will our sales team run your book’s Amazon ads, but we’ll also coach you on how to market your book. This includes setting up a complete marketing strategy before your book’s launch date to make sure you have a website and social presence in place ahead of time.
We’ll also provide you with tools like templates and press kits that you can use to share your book with the media and influencers that can help push your book.
Authors with an imaginative and fun story for kids or illustrators who draw beautifully for children’s books are welcome to send to us. (Bonus if you do both!)
All submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for our publisher, Brooke Gansemer, to review.
Authors: Please send the full manuscript of your book as a PDF attachment, along with your goals for your story.
Illustrators: Please send a link to your portfolio or website along with 3-4 sample jpegs of your polished work as an attachment.
*As always, every submission should include a query letter to introduce yourselves to us.
Yes! We are officially open to submissions for any and all children’s books.
