Information for authors

Kiwi Kids Read Kiwi Books welcomes all New Zealand authors and illustrators creating books for 0-15 year olds to submit their books for consideration. Please note: submissions are currently closed until mid-January 2022.

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 or your nominated distribution service/publisher must pack and dispatch the paid orders. This is not a service offered by KKRKB at this point.

– As part of the selection process, authors are asked to provide a sample copy of each book being listed. If you are accepted, the sample copy will be utilised by KKRKB as a giveaway to help build the KKRKB 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 KKRKB and how it can benefit your New Zealand sales channel, please contact us for our author information document.


Please also note a modest author sign-up fee will be introduced at some point in 2022. At present, no fee is applicable.
