Translation for your convience

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 as a publisher

I remember reading the uproar when decided to start it's own publishing company. I receive regular emails from An inquiry was received about submitting to Amazon's publishing company and here is the response:

Tim Ditlow, Associate Publisher of Amazon Children’s Publishing, spoke about his months-old program at the 2012 SCBWI Summer Conference last week. While official submission guidelines are still being created, he said ACP is indeed accepting unsolicited submissions. For now, send a query email to Attach your full picture book ms or the first 3 chapters of your MG/YA fiction as pdfs or Word documents. There’s no time frame for responses yet. See ACP’s list of picture books, chapter books, and MG/YA fiction at Note that for now, ACP appears to function like any traditional publisher, reviewing submissions and then putting acquired books through the full production cycle, which can take a year+ for novels and 18 months for picture books. Proposals for books for adult readers can be submitted to Amazon Publishing at

Looks like they're up and running, kindof. Anyway, they're another source for submission.
Happy submitting.
