ZLS Publishing is a hybrid book publishing company. This means we do Traditional Publishing, Self-Publishing and Print-Only with Distribution. We are very selective in the authors in which we choose for both our Self-Publishing and Traditional Publishing lines. We have to be, as our clients and our company, enjoy success in part to us sticking by our motto of creating better. We carefully review each submission and will contact you with our response. In the event that we deny your request to be one of our authors, we will provide you with a detailed explanation as to why we are denying your request. We believe it’s only fair to be honest with you as opposed to sending you a generic response.
