Blue Mushroom Books is a publisher and distributor primarily of accessible non-fiction, children's books, anthologies, and poetry. We welcome expressions of interest from authors who have a concept, a completed manuscript (up to 10,000 words) with potential for publication. We operate on flat fee payments rather than royalties.
We may choose to 'trade publish' your book, if we believe your project fits the Blue Mushroom Books kaupapa and has potential to be commercially viable. However, we can also provide self-publishing services, particularly design and consultation.
DISTRIBUTION FOR SELF-PUBLISHED BOOKS
We are looking to support New Zealand authors of quality work, so if you feel your self-published book (or related product) fits our catalogue, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We operate on firm sales rather than consignment, and reserve the right to reject any proposal without giving reason.
If you have a proposal that you would like considered, please submit to Zee via email (email@example.com), a brief synopsis of the proposal, and an outline of any personal experience, professional or otherwise, that is relevant to your submission. We will then let you know if we are interested in seeing a more complete proposal.
Please do not expect an immediate response. We get many, many queries, and assessing publishing proposals often takes a considerable amount of time.
