Seeking Some Specific Book Queries

First, please note: We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. So, please read this before you submit anything at all:

We are currently seeking submissions for two specific projects here at Small-Tooth-Dog Publishing. We’re developing (picture books for kids) and also (preteen reading for, um, preteens) that have either the subject/theme of “oceanography” or “kindness and caring.” You may interpret those themes broadly. We are a diverse company with a variety of options for producing content and we have some specific marketing projects and goals in mind.

Again, please do not send an unsolicited manuscript to us. It will be deleted or trashed if you have not first sent a query letter and had your manuscript requested.

First- subscribe to our mailing list (on this page) to stay up-to-date on our projects.

Then, send your simple query letter (less is more, friends) via email to: team@smalltoothdog.com and use the subject line, “book query.” Thanks.

First-time authors are welcome. Please note our Mission Statement below so you’ll understand how we operate and to be sure our values align with yours:

Interview with Author Marc Severson

Our publisher, Sean Buvala, sat down with author Marc Severson to talk shop about his new book “Don’t Throw Me in the Cholla Patch!” recently published by us. A transcript is included below. It’s a transcript, not a polished, printed document. Enjoy the “flavor” of it all.

Listen at Anchor!

Sean Buvala: Hey. This is Sean Buvala with Small Tooth Dog Publishing Group. I’m talking today to one of our new authors. You’ve been around the block for a while.

Marc Severson: Thirty years or so.

Sean Buvala: This is Mark Severson. He has just released with us, Don’t Throw Me in the Choya Patch. The wood rat and coyote story. The first of the woodrat stories.

Marc Severson: Absolutely.

Sean Buvala: Mark, how are ya?

Marc Severson: I’m doing great. I like to say that over the last 30 years, I’ve become an overnight sensation.

Sean Buvala: Yes, that’s right. That’s all it takes is 30 years. Hey, so we are really pleased to see this book come out with you.

Marc Severson: Not as pleased as I was.

Sean Buvala: That’s good. Look, even your name is on it.

Marc Severson: I know.

Sean Buvala: Where does the story come from? What is the history?

Marc Severson: That’s a great question. When I was an archeologist, I used to be out in the Sonoran desert and I’d find these piles of brush and such. They were surrounded by cholla. I always wondered about them. The fellow that I was doing the survey with said they were woodrat nests. I just thought, “Wow, what a fascinating creature.” They can bring cholla to its nest to protect it from all the other animals.
