About LongTale Publishing
LongTale Publishing, founded in 2007, produces works in the categories of juvenile fiction. LT Press is an adult imprint of LongTale Publishing. LongTale uses a hybrid publishing model, giving the author more control of their work and ownership of their copyright, while following a traditional standard of publishing. We do not act as an investor in the projects. However, authors receive a larger royalty on sales distributed through online channels and bookstores than traditional publishers. Short print on demand runs and large traditional print runs are available. Titles are distributed through Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Authors are also able to sell their books directly to their own readers. Due to the one-on-one time our authors receive with the publisher, we only take on five authors a year. This allows our designers to create unique and individualized products with high book industry standards.
LongTale is currently not taking submissions until fall 2021.
Submissions for 2019 will be accepted between the months of November 1st 2017 and July 31st 2018. You will be contacted within 1 month by email of your submission as to whether or not your work fits in with our collection.
