Information about the press: AKW Books, an imprint of Kalar/Wade Media, is an independent electronic book (eBook) publisher of novels and pamphlets written by truly talented storytellers and non-fiction works by equally talented experts in various fields. Not a vanity press. AKW is a legitimate book publishing company. You do not pay us anything to get published by our house. We pay you via royalties on sales. One of our founders, after six years in the book publishing industry, felt that there is a lack of respect for talented authors who are not well known or who don’t fit the mold of the current ‘popular’ authors. We hope to change that situation to make their efforts available to all. AKW Books has the same high standards as the mainstream presses, except we can afford to “take a chance” on unknown authors and unusual projects as long as the writing is top notch. Author’s Korner:
What type of submissions you are looking for: All fiction and non-fiction. No porn or erotica. All commercially-viable lengths. Approximately 20,000 word minimum, but not a “hard” floor. Maximum: None, but if you run over 200,000 words, you might think about doing two books.
Information on Suggestions on Submitting: Start with a query. Tell us about your project and any credentials you may have related to the project (if the book is about heart health, are you a doctor?). Previous publishing credits are nice, but we will base our decision on your work, not your publishing history or lack thereof. If we like the project, we’ll ask for the first 10,000 words to judge your writing and get a feel for the work. We’ll work from there if we like what we see.
