A new path to publication!

Gain readers and make money while writing your next manuscript.


Guidelines for Authors

Bookappisodes is dedicated to creating a fan base of invested readers who follow your path to publication.

Authors who publish with us get immediate feedback on the direction of their novel from readers through a voting process. In addition, authors receive the support of a dedicated editor as they publish weekly appisodes (chapters).

Upon completion, Bookappisodes will publish the book in both digital and trade paperback formats. It’s an innovative and interactive way into the competitive world of publishing. However, an author who wishes to self-publish the manuscript themselves, this path is an option as well. Bookappisodes will give all the rights back to the author, but continue to advertise your book on our website for purchase.

*It is important that you familiarize yourself with our website and/or app before sending a submission and follow the guidelines below.


Here is what we’re looking for:


What kind of books do we want?


Why publish with Bookappisodes?


What if you already have an existing unpublished manuscript?

You have two options.

  1. Release your manuscript in 12 appisodes, allowing for reader votes, which may alter your plotline.

  2. Submit your full manuscript for direct publishing in digital and paperback formats.


If you’re ready to submit to Bookappisodes, send the following to submissions@bookappisodes.com

  1. Cover letter introducing yourself, any publishing history (including self-published work).

  2. Brief synopsis of your book idea, or if already a complete manuscript, then a synopsis of the entire book and final word count.

  3. First appisode (chapter) of approximately 3000-5000 words, ending with two options for the readers – or, if submitting a completed manuscript, include the first three chapters (attach as a word document).

*If your book idea/manuscript is selected, an acquisition editor will contact you via email to initiate the publication process. We will notify you within 2-4 weeks of submission.

If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.
