Saddleback is always looking for fresh, new talent. When submitting writing samples to Saddleback, please be aware of the types and levels of books we currently publish. We are a publisher of high-interest, low-readability materials for striving readers. A submission of work does not guarantee a partnership, the purchase of a manuscript, or a response from publisher. Please read the entire page below before reaching out.

Before sending a writing sample, please note that we primarily publish books for kids ages 12–18. Please DO NOT send K–3 elementary submissions to us. We publish all genres and subjects. It is important to us to publish books that show characters of all races, backgrounds, sexual orientation, etc. We look for diversity for our characters and content.

Please note we will not respond to every submission. Because of the number of submissions that we receive, we will only respond to you if we are interested.
