EarlyLight Books Submissions

EarlyLight Books publishes children’s and adult books that celebrate the intersection of science and fun. We only do nonfiction, so if you have written a story about talking worms, it won’t work for us no matter how cute or funny it is.

Keep in mind that images are a large component of our books, so if you have a fabulous idea that cannot be easily photographed or illustrated, it’s not for us.

If you would like to submit a book proposal, please email a one-page PDF file with the following information to submissions@earlylightbooks.com. (Proposals in any other format will not be reviewed.) Feel free to attach a low-res photo or two. Please allow up to 12 weeks for a response; we will contact you for more information if the proposal is of interest.
