How to Submit to LKLA

LKLA accepts queries and submissions via e-mail only.
E-mail: Send a query briefly stating (1) the subject of your proposed book and what makes it different/special; and (2) a brief author biography of yourself and/or your co-author. (Attachments from unknown senders will not be opened.)

Please indicate if this is an exclusive submission—that is, that it is not currently being reviewed by other agents or publishers (preferred)

LKLA normally responds to queries within one to two weeks. If interested, LKLA will request a full nonfiction proposal along with one or two sample chapters.

How to Make Your Submission Stand Out

LKLA icon Your book offers new/groundbreaking/research-based information that has not yet received wide attention.
LKLA icon The premise of/advice in your book is different from what is usually seen or heard.
LKLA icon Your premise is counterintuitive. Best of all, it works, based on a large sampling of the population (not just on you/your family/your friends/your students).
LKLA icon You or your expert co-author’s platform is outstanding and based on many of the following activities or accomplishments:
• professional/academic credentials in the subject you’re writing about (mandatory);
• recent and frequent appearances on national TV or radio;
• recent and frequent appearances in print media—for example, you write a regular column based on the subject of your book or articles about you, your work or your business;
• a popular, heavily-trafficked blog, website or podcast, especially one that has received media coverage;
• recent and frequent lectures to large audiences around the country (representation by one or more speakers’ bureaus is helpful);
• the ability to sell large quantities of your book through your company, your speaking engagements, and/or companies you're affiliated with;
• a track record of previously published books that have sold in large numbers;
• a well-known, relevant person has committed to write the foreword of your book.
