Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Have questions about publishing? See our full list of publishing FAQs here.
What types of nonfiction books do you publish?
We publish nonfiction books in all major subgenres and niches (see the list of subgenres we’re most interested in above).
If you have written or are working on a nonfiction book or series, contact us here to see if it would be a good fit for us to publish your book.
Do you accept unsolicited nonfiction book manuscripts?
Yes, we’re currently accepting unsolicited manuscripts in all nonfiction markets and fiction genres.
Where will you publish my nonfiction book?
We publish nonfiction books on Amazon Kindle in the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Brazil, France, Japan, India, and many other countries. Print books are available throughout North America, Europe, parts of Asia, and possibly other countries if our distribution partners are interested in carrying your book. Audiobooks will be published in the U.S. on Audible.com and will be available to customers internationally from Audible, Amazon, and iTunes, the largest digital audiobook retailers in the world.
How much will I get paid for publishing my nonfiction book?
We pay our authors 50% of net royalties and payments received for subsidiary rights and licensing deals. If we earn $10,000 in royalties for your book, you get paid 50% of that amount, or $5,000. If we earn $5,000 for a five-year deal to license French language rights for your book, you earn 50% of that amount, or $2,500. It’s just that simple: for every dollar your book brings in, you get half (which is 3–5x more than what a traditional publisher pays).
Will my book be available in international markets?
Yes! Your book will be available all over the world in the U.S., UK, Canada, France, Australia, Germany, Japan, and many other countries through Amazon and other distribution channels. In addition, we actively market our titles to international publishers year-round, as well as at the Frankfurt Book Fair and London Book Fair.

I previously self-published my book, or my book was published by another publisher. Can I switch to TCK Publishing?
Yes. Assuming your publishing contract allows you to switch, we can republish your book and begin marketing it for you. If you self-published your book, you can definitely switch to us right away. We have had many clients switch from self-publishing to TCK Publishing and we can make the process quick, easy, and painless for you. If you published your book with another publisher, you’ll need to look at your publishing contract to see if you still own the rights to your work. If you have questions about whether or not a previous publisher controls the rights to your work, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll do our best to help.
How do I submit a nonfiction manuscript?
Simply email us your typed manuscript in any digital format. We prefer Microsoft Word files in .doc or .docx format, but we can accept PDFs, .epub, .mobi, and a variety of other file types. If your manuscript is in a different file format, just contact us and we can find a way to work with it or convert it to a workable file format. If your manuscript was typed on a typewriter or handwritten, we will need it typed into a word processor on a computer so that we can edit and publish it for you.
