Submissions

Amberjack Publishing is a small press that publishes 24 books annually, mostly middle-grade, young adult, and literary and commercial fiction. We are also aggressively looking for narrative nonfiction and memoirs from female authors. While we are currently closed for unagented and unsolicited submissions, we hope to re-open later this fall. Please sign up for our newsletter for an announcement when submissions are open again.

Literary agents may submit directly to Kayla Church, Amberjack Publishing’s Editorial Director. While you will submit to Kayla Church, you can expect to work with Dayna Anderson, Amberjack Publishing’s Publisher, during contract negotiations should we feel the manuscript is a good fit.



Amberjack Publishing, founded in 2014, is an independent small press of fiction books with offices in New York and Idaho. Amberjack’s books are distributed by Midpoint Trade Books, one of the largest distributors in the industry.
