About Kids Books offers what most publishers do not: an accessible publishing house where author and publisher work cooperatively for success. 

Everyone has a story to tell, and some people need help telling it. Far too many stories go unpublished and unshared. We’re working to help change that.

Our mission is to help authors bring their stories to light with professional editing, design, and good exposure to the marketplace. Through About Kids Books, we offer personal guidance and accessibility, encourage authors to actively participate in the publishing process, and produce high-quality books that exhibit editorial quality of the highest calibre.

We treat the publishing process as a partnership because when the book comes off the press, we want our authors to be confident and successful.

About Kids Books specialises in publishing illustrated children’s books, chapter books, and middle grade fiction. (Note that it does not yet publish picture books or YA fiction.)
