Kat Biggie Press

Submit your book

General Guidelines

At this time, Kat Biggie Press accepts nonfiction books written by female authors. We are committed to publishing books on topics of inspiration, transformation, self-help, memoirs, encouragement, and other books that share stories and information from female authors.

We do also accept books for our Children’s book company – Purple Butterfly Press.

We are willing to review unsolicited and non-agented manuscripts.

At this time, Kat Biggie Press is only able to receive submissions and queries by e-mail. If submitting a manuscript, please attach the entire manuscript. Length is not an issue at this time. We are not responsible for the return of your manuscript.

Please be patient when submitting a manuscript or query. Each will be reviewed in turn. Expect at least a week-long delay before receiving a response.

Kat Biggie Press / Purple Butterfly Press understands that authors, in order to maximize their chances of acceptance, will send multiple submissions to many publishers. However, we would appreciate that if this is the case, that you make us aware of this in your query or submission. This will not lessen your chances of acceptance.

Please see How It Works for a detailed infographic on our process.

For Illustrators ONLY:

Please provide samples (if you work in a number of styles, we appreciate seeing samples of each style) in an Internet ready format, such as JPEG, PNG, or PDF.

We will keep your query and samples on file for a year and will contact you if we have a project suitable for your talents.
