How to submit a manuscript:
At this time we are only accepting manuscripts for children’s books written by Native authors or non-natives with close tribal affiliations.
Send a PRINTED version of your submission to the following address.
Book Publishing Co.
c/o Kathie Hanson
P.O. Box 99
Summertown, TN 38483
When sending in a submission, it must include a SASE (a self-addressed envelope, stamped with sufficient postage) so that we are able to return your manuscript and/or send you a reply. Include your email address if possible.
Don't forget to keep a copy of your manuscript! Although we make every effort to keep your manuscript safe and sound, we cannot assume responsibility for your manuscript. Do not send your original manuscript.
Please allow a period of at least 4 months for us to consider your submission. The manuscript will be submitted to an acquisitions committee for review.
It is generally a good idea to include a cover letter with your background information about academic history, related work and previous publishing credits (where applicable). Please include information on what avenues you have to publicize yourself and your book.
We also accept illustrator portfolios. Please send a sample of your work and a cover letter to our address. We will only respond if interested, but will keep your portfolio on hand for future projects. Your portfolio will not be returned.
Also, keep in mind that we only publish one or two illustrated books per season.
