Book Submissions


After 10 years of looking inward, Knock Knock is thrilled to start looking outward—for book proposals from you folks! Ever on the hunt for clever conceptual ideas, we’re excited to see your creative genius. Please note that we are currently accepting submissions for nonfiction gift book projects only.

Knock Knock Book SubmissionsSpecific format and genre are less important to us than a sensibility that embraces wit, surprise, and aesthetic sophistication. What unites our eclectic output is a savvy sensibility, dry humor, and ability to capture (and occasionally skewer) the cultural zeitgeist. You’ll get the best sense of us simply by browsing our website—but you probably thought of that already.

So, go on. Show us your stuff. Just click here for our “Book Proposal Submissions: Guidelines and Fine Print,” AKA the details, and get to writing so we can get to reading!

Please note: We wish we could respond to all unsolicited submissions, but unfortunately we’re too busy reading them.
