PUBLISH A CHILDREN'S BOOK: SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
    
CHILDREN'S BOOKS

    
  ... and Our
KINDI CORNER imprint
       
                
for Children's Picture & Children's Book submissions for ages 2 to 12
  
                                  
                             
CHILDREN'S BOOK manuscripts can be from minimal words as in a Picture Book to approximately 55,000 words for a more standard book.  There is an infinite variety of combinations, sizes... and subjects.

Most Children's books require imagery particularly if the aim is 2-6 years olds. Original sketches are best but inexpensive digital photography is an excellent means of providing graphics. We arrange both if needed.
