Our mission is to connect subject experts with the subject curious through empowering nonfiction books.
How2Conquer partners with experts in a variety of fields to share their specialized expertise with our readers. We’ve worked with authors from a range of different backgrounds, from high‑level corporate executives to experienced volunteers, and veterinarians to school board members.
Our authors generally come to us because they are working on a book they think could help people, but publishing can be difficult to navigate. We support them throughout the publishing journey, from developing a manuscript to helping build their platform and marketing efforts.

What We’re Looking For
How2Conquer specializes in unique how‑to books that are designed to help readers master new skills quickly. Our books generally share three things in common: use of story, an emphasis on graphics, and an encouraging tone.
We’ve been lucky to find authors whose passion for their subject and genuine desire to share knowledge naturally translates into approachable, reassuring, and inspiring writing. The stories they share – sometimes funny, sweet, or even cringe-worthy – help convey nuance and exhibit ideas in action, promoting understanding and retention of information for the reader. We help develop infographics and illustrations to encourage readers’ interaction with the text as their knowledge of the subject develops, while providing another way to revisit and reinforce what they’ve learned.
We prefer completed manuscripts with a target range of 40,000 – 70,000 words, and we’re currently working to build our lists in the following categories:
- Business – General (including Business Development, Business Leadership, Business Management)
- Business – Industries (including Security, Business Resiliency, Franchise, Restaurant & Food Industry)
- Hobbies & Home (including Crafts, Cooking, Pets & Animal Care)
- Parenting & Relationships
- Self-Help & Personal Growth
