Information for authors

The Kiwi Kids’ Bookstore welcomes all New Zealand authors and illustrators creating books for 0-15 year olds to submit their books for consideration. 

Please be advised that submissions are taking several weeks to be reviewed while a major upgrade to the online store and distribution systems are taking place.

Please note a couple of requirements:

– At present, we offer a sales channel for print books only. We are exploring the option of downloadable products like eBooks for future enhancements.

– You must be prepared to provide a small quantity of print books on consignment for which you will be paid when they sell.

– As part of the selection process, authors are asked to provide a sample copy of each book being listed. If you are accepted, we will utilise the sample copy as a giveaway to help build our book buying audience. If the book is not accepted, the sample copy will be returned to you.

If you can meet these requirements and would like to know more about The Kiwi Kids’ Bookstore and how it can benefit your New Zealand sales channel, please contact Kate for the author information document. Email:
