c a m e r o n k i d s Submission Guidelines
Cameron Kids—the children’s book imprint of Cameron + Company, an independent publisher based in Petaluma, California—publishes children’s books for all ages. We are a growing list of compelling, thoughtfully and beautifully written, illustrated, edited, designed and produced titles. Our focus is making picture books, but we are open to all formats—board books, novelty/concept, creative nonfiction, chapter books and fiction.
Because we are a small, independent publisher—we currently publish 6 titles a year—we only publish books we all love, books that matter, books that need to be books, which requires us to be pretty picky. We love to see poetic, highly visual, picture book stories—think spare and lyrical, not necessarily end-rhyming—and compelling picture book and board book concepts. We are interested in creative nonfiction, too.
Please spend some time looking at the books on our list, be it on our website or at the bookstore. If your children’s book manuscript or concept truly feels like a fit for us, you are welcome to send it (or a brief query for fiction) in the body of an email to Amy Novesky, our Children’s Book Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also welcome to submit manuscripts by mail with a proper self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE). Mailed submissions without SASEs will be recycled. Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, unfortunately we cannot respond to each and every one. We thank you for sharing your work with us and will contact you if we are interested.
Thank you for your interest in Cameron Kids!
