Submit Your Book Idea

Our Services

Conception

We begin by conceiving together what you want to publish. What are the ideas, experiences and stories you want to bring to life? Whether your book begins as a speech, an op-ed or a manuscript, our Clyde Hill writers group provides professional authoring services, editing, data visualizations, illustrations and video production.

Production

Holding your book or ebook in your hands for the first time is a proud moment. Getting there requires all of the preceding steps as well as coordinating the printing, production, legal and financial services.

Promotion

We want your ideas to find the widest audience possible. Our promotion team will generate the traditional and social media, reviews, readings, speeches, conferences and other appearances to generate attention, influence and sales

Want to Publish with Clyde Hill Publishing?

We can’t wait to hear your idea for a book.

Use the form here to tell us more about what the book is about, who you are and the audience you have in mind. We’ll eventually want to see a more fully developed book proposal, and we can even help you with that if it’s a project we decide to work on together. You can expect to hear back from us in a few days. Thank you.

About Us

Books remain powerful tools for communications, influence and learning. Books provide a platform for bigger, more meaningful discussions that advance your ideas. Our prospective authors – founders, innovators, tinkerers and thinkers — are often overlooked and underserved by today’s book publishing industry. Traditional publishers, agents and editors can put up barriers rather than facilitate the creation of a new book.
Clyde Hill Publishing believes your ideas, stories, lessons, experiences and legacy must be published. At first it may simply emerge as a speech or an article. We work with you in a flexible, nimble way to publish the book you want, and the reader deserves. Read the About page to better understand Clyde Hill’s services. Our focus is nonfiction, including a range of topics: business and technology, engineering, biography and memoir, law, public policy and the occasional sports book.
