Submit a proposal using our guided book proposal template. One of our agents will review it and offer feedback. For non-fiction no manuscript is needed.
Launch a 30 day crowdfunding campaign on Publishizer. You will be coached by one of our agents during your campaign. We promote weekly to our audience of readers.
At the end of your campaign, we pitch your proposal to a targeted list of publishers, and interested publishers will contact you. If you sell 750 pre-orders or higher, then we negotiate a publishing deal for you.
Publishizer is free. Authors earn 70% of pre-orders. If you sell 500 pre-orders or higher, as one of our clients, you will earn 70% of advances and royalties.
9/10 Publishizer clients land a traditional book deal. We commit to growing your author career over the long-term, as your agent, coach and guide.

What is a book proposal?
A book proposal is used to attract publisher interest. Proposals are 1000-5000 words, and include a synopsis, chapter outline, author bio, target audience, marketing plan, and 1-2 sample chapters. Publishizer proposals are hosted online.
Do I need a finished manuscript?
No. For nonfiction, no manuscript is needed. In fact, it’s preferred. 90% of nonfiction books are acquired before the book is written.
How does pitching work?
At the end of your crowdfunding campaign, Publishizer uses algorithms and data science to pitch a list of relevant acquiring editors. If the editor expresses interest, they will get in contact with you directly.
How many publishers do you pitch?
We pitch at least 30 publishers for you. This includes traditional, advance-paying publishers, although we cannot guarantee an advance. To help you land a deal, we also pitch independent publishers and high-quality hybrid publishers who take a stake in the success of your book.
What are the advantages of a traditional publisher?
Prestige and publicity. Traditional publishers focus on strong author platforms and mainstream commercial potential. They pay author advances, and do not charge authors. However, expect only 5-15% royalties, and loss of creative control.
What are the advantages of an independent publisher?
Quality and attention. Independent publishers seek quality writers with a clearly defined audience for marketing. They do not normally pay advances, and do not charge authors. Expect royalties between 15-30%, and more hands-on attention than traditional publishers.
What are the advantages of a hybrid publisher?
Speed and flexibility. Hybrid publishers offer partnerships with authors looking to reach a wider readership and build their audience. They do not pay advances, and normally charge authors an upfront cost, or require a minimum order of books. Expect royalties between 30-70%, and the highest level of service, speed, and creative flexibility.
What happens if I don’t receive a publishing offer I’m happy with?
We guarantee you will receive at least 3 publishing offers, if you hit 250 pre-orders. If you hit 250 pre-orders and don't receive 3 publishing offers within 7 days of your campaign ending, we will pitch an additional 10 publishers for you, to help you get more offers.
Can you write the book proposal for me?
No. But we have a step-by-step guide once you Start a proposal, and our agents give excellent support.
