Submitting Your Book
to Indigo River Publishing



 Indigo River Publishing is a Modern, Hybrid publisher. This means that when we decide to publish a book, we partner financially with the author and in return, offer expertise where it’s important and partnership in decision-making where it’s meaningful. 

When considering a project for publication, we consider a number of variables, including, but not limited to: 

  • Content
  • Author’s writing style and ability
  • Marketing potential
  • (most importantly!) the author.


Working with us is a collaborative effort, including the acquisitions process, as soon as you press ‘submit’ below. Check out our process page for more information on how we work with our authors as a Hybrid Publisher, where you are the financial contributor to your project. When publishing through Indigo, our authors receive:

  • Expert multi-level editorial support
  • Design support
  • Production support
  • Plus, we are proudly distributed through Simon & Schuster

Ready to Submit? 

We are interested in books that will stand out in their subject area and spark a love of reading. Indigo River Publishing accepts both agented and unagented projects. 

We are currently open to submissions across all genres and categories.

Due to submission volume, Indigo River Publishing is highly selective about the projects we choose to publish and strive to work with projects that support our mission. The selective nature of our partnerships ensures that each of our authors are given the proper time, devotion, and attention to create a high quality and sustainable book.
