Our Vision

At DLG Publishing Partners, we value the written word of the authors signed and are committed to working with individuals who are passionate about the content, brand, and vision of the work they create.


Our Mission

DLG recognizes love is universal and comes in many different shapes, forms, and sizes, which is why we’re interested in well-crafted stories, fresh characters, original worlds, and diverse experiences with a realistic or otherworldly feel. Currently, we are seeking stories with fresh, exciting voices in all categories for eBooks and print. If you have something new, exciting, unique, and diverse, we want to hear from you. We accept both agented and unagented submissions that haven’t been previously published; however, in some cases, we will accept some previously published standalones and series on a case-by-case basis.
