Submitting Your Rhyming Books To QuickTurtle Books®

If you are a book writer of rhyming books for kids and would like to submit your children's book to QuickTurtle Books® for consideration, please understand that we require a $10.00 reading charge to accompany each of your submissions.  In return, we respond to every submission with feedback and advice about your rhyming book whether your submission is accepted for publication or not.  In order for us to respond, your submission must include a valid email address or Self-addressed Stamped Envelope.  We cannot reply without a valid email address or SASE to accommodate a response.

Guidelines For Rhyming Books

Our best guidelines for submission are:

1.  We publish only morally responsible rhyming books. 

2.  We do not have interest in fad topics such as bullying, climate change or transgender politics.  We do not believe in books condoning anti-social behavior, socialism, psychiatry, or drug use, so don’t even bother. 

3.  We believe in books bolstering a child's inherent knowing of right from wrong. We want uplifting books that enhance common sense, moral and ethical values, responsible help, patriotism and the U.S. Constitution

4.  We believe in human rights as laid out by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights.  We absolutely do not tolerate nor believe in the psychiatric labeling and  drugging of innocent children in the name of help.  Psychotropic drugging is child abuse, pure and simple.  We believe in the anti-drug philosophy of A Drug Free World.  

Rhyming Book Writers Topics

We accept books with a true intent to help or entertain children on those issues we believe in and support.  We are particularly interested in creative books about values, uplifting deeds, nature, gardening, farming, responsible behavior, productivity, positive human relations and creativity.  We prefer short books over long.  We prefer good rhyme over prose.  Our targeted age group is 4 to 8 years old.
