A word from Tall Tails Publishing
I thought your readers might be interested in submitting query letters to Tall Tails Publishing House. We’re a small independent children’s press, and we’re expanding our catalog with two new Middle Grade imprints this year. One is for non-fiction and reference, and the other is for fiction chapter books. I have included our wish list below, but other genres may be considered.
Middle Grade Non-fiction and reference:
– Writing guides and reference books
– Biographies of (often overlooked) historical figures
– Accounts of historical events using primary sources, especially from a child’s POV
– Oklahoma history and biographies, especially from a child’s POV
– Science and technology guides, tutorials, and reference materials
Middle Grade Fiction Chapter Books:
– Legends, myths, or fairy tales—with a twist!
– Science Fiction set in outer space
– Post-Apocalyptic stories (remember the audience!)
– Stories featuring multicultural or non-traditional family groups, especially during the holidays or special events
– Scary chapter books
Our current response time is about six weeks, but if an author doesn’t hear from us in that time frame, they can send us an email. Please read our Submission Guidelines (talltailspublishing.com/submissions.html) carefully before submitting.
