Selecting the right publisher is one of the most important decisions an author will make. At Lange Publisher, we recognize that our authors are at the heart of what we do.
WELCOME TO LANGE PUBLISHER, YOU HAVE ARRIVED
When you send in a manuscript to us we will give you a confirmation that we have received it. We will answer you about the future of your script with our Bronze Pen which is a first impressions statement of the manuscript. This is free of charge of course. We will do this as soon as possible so you don’t waste precious time, normally within 10-60 days.
We work with four different pens. We only offer a limited amount of slots for manuscripts per reading period. We select manuscripts that will be in these slots with a focus that you will be released. If needed, these pens can also be ordered externally by those who just want a professional opinion on their manuscript, a written dictum, or solid professional work for self-publishing or other publishing houses. We accept manuscripts if we have open slots.
Write Together with Lange Publisher
Bronze pen includes the first impression on your manuscript. This is valuable knowledge of what a professional publishing house thinks of your manuscript or writing idea.
Silver Pen includes Manuscript reading and written Dictum. We read it thoroughly and give you a written dictum of what it needs to be as good as possible. This pen is perfect if you have a complete Manuscript, in need of some professional feedback.
Gold Pen includes Manuscript Reading, Manuscript Repair, Manuscript rewriting, Editing, Feedback, Dictum, Mentoring, Ghost Pen & Proofreading. This is a close collaboration with the author. The Manuscript will be worked on in detail and scrutinized from top to bottom. This pen is perfect anywhere in your writing journey.
The fee for the different pen cannot be refunded when accepted by the author.
O.P.A. Pen is our exclusive annual mentoring program for those who want to be the best writer they can be. A writer that will become an Author. We will be with you the whole time with your script. This pen is perfect if you are working on Manuscripts and need help in your writing process. Or if you want to get extra mentoring and agency. We will be right by your side to get your manuscript done, published, and loved by readers. You have access to everything we have to offer. This is a monthly membership and you can cancel it whenever you want.
OUR SHORT STORY CONTEST OPENS FOR CONTRIBUTION EVERY YEAR ON THE 1ST OF DECEMBER AND CLOSES ON THE 1ST OF SEPTEMBER!
Anthologies are collections of stories written by different authors, so instead of browsing the shelves, you can browse within the book and see what piques your interest.
Let’s Write Together is our annual short story contest. The first anthology was released on November 30th, 2020. You can send your contribution anonymously, with your name, or with a pseudonym. At the moment we accept short stories written in Swedish, Danish, and English, and you can submit several different entries with the same author name if it’s under 15 pages/short story. The subject of the short story is your choice, so it has no theme because we like the idea that every story is unique.
You can send your contribution here: firstname.lastname@example.org
All profits of the sale are donated to our soul tree partners TreeSisters. We give 100% to charity and Mother Nature for this release!
LET’S WRITE TOGETHER & AT THE SAME TIME HEAL MOTHER NATURE!
Thank you all & Best of luck!

“Words can be hard to speak, but easier to write. Think hard about what you choose though because after your word is out there it lives forever.” ~ Lange Publisher
Lange Publisher has inspiration from solid geological research, dating back to the 900s! We are very proud of our history! Our family weapon has inspired us to have the logo that we have and the weapon is from 1315 or even longer back.
Our oldest ancestor in a direct line, Gorm the old (also Vurm) was born sometime in the late 800s and died in 958. Gorm was the first official king of Denmark and ruled from 936 to 958. (Gorm’s father was probably Knud I Hardeknut) Gorm ruled the land from Jelling, Denmark. He married Thyra Danebod from England and was the father of Knud Gormsson (Knud Dana-Ast), Harald Bluetooth, and Gunhild Gormsdotter. Gorm raised one of the Jelling Stones in honor of his wife.
Written on the stone; “ᚴᚢᚱᛘᛦ ᚴᚢᚾᚢᚴᛦ ᚴ(ᛅᚱ)ᚦᛁ ᚴᚢᛒᛚ ᚦᚢᛋᛁ ᛅ(ᚠᛏ) ᚦᚢᚱᚢᛁ ᚴᚢᚾᚢ ᛋᛁᚾᛅ ᛏᛅᚾᛘᛅᚱᚴᛅᛦ ᛒᚢᛏ” The text on the stone has got two interpretations, partly “King Gorm made this stone after his wife Thyra, Denmark’s protector”, but also “King Gorm, Denmark’s protector, made this stone after his wife Thyra”
His son, Harald Bluetooth, took over the kingdom after Gorm died. He raised the second Jelling Stone, to honor his parents, celebrating his conquest of Denmark and Norway.
In our family, women have been very strong and sometimes had rather great power. For example, legends say Queen Thyra made sure that Denmark was not invaded by extending the famous wall, Dannevirke. Grandmother, Erna Kirkegaard, did not let the German soldiers take supplies from her home during World War II. She and her husband Hans Peter Svendsen had 9 children to take care of. But even though she was very strict towards the Germans, she felt sorry for the young boys fighting and therefore gave them food and shelter the family could spare. During the little spare time they had, Erna and Hans Peter practice amateur theatre.
“Thank you, for the beautiful book cover of the book “Det började med Barnet”, it’s amazing and just the way I wanted it! During our collaboration with my book manuscript, Lange has shown great commitment and has come up with many possible solutions to problems we encountered during our joint work with the text. Lange is very competent with excellent attention to detail, they are professional and positive. I can recommend anyone looking for a partner in the publishing industry to contact Lange.”
– Ethel Hedström
“Lilith Linda is a true person, interested in the history of each unique person. The interest in stories taken from the life story and life perspective of the little man gets every person she comes into contact with to grow … grow and believe in themselves. To “look” between the lines and beyond the words to “truly” get to know the individual behind all roles of life, is Lilith’s greatness!”
– Jonas Appelgren
“Thank you, for your comprehensive work with my manuscript! You have really gone through my text in-depth, and it feels so professional and absolutely wonderful. I will get started and work immediately with it. You do not realize how much I appreciate your commitment and your comments. It feels great to collaborate with someone who sees opportunities instead of difficulties, someone who is also able to manage such a big project. From the very first contact with you at Lange, I felt that you were quite right for me. You are such talents! If you have just finished writing your first novel or perhaps a short story, you will receive a lot of professional help from this publisher. I myself especially benefited from the solid editorial work that my editor did for me. As an author at Lange, you also get more influence over the design and cover of the book, which I especially appreciate.”
– Harriette Sjödahl
“Personal treatment and knowledgeable help!”
– Åsa Uddh

“Boy, oh, boy. WOW! I do not have to say more than that, huh? But for safety’s sake, so that there will be no misunderstandings … WOW, WOW, WOW. My book cover is so beautiful. I love it. Love. You are awesome.”
– Daniel Sjöberg

“Lilith Linda has an empathic personality which makes for a nice dialogue. I have not published books at Lange but received support in my own writing process. Lange works closely with their writers and makes careful choices. If you have just started and need tutor help, or support in the process, or want to release your book, please take a look at Lange, a small and personal publisher with a big heart.”
-Charlotta Lagerberg Thunes
“Thank you, Lange, for the amazingly nice response and professional opinion which led to my book being given YES for publication. Thank you too for the dedication and interest that you have shown. What you do and what you deliver are absolutely incredible. Passionate people who take the whole world in their arms.”
“Lange meets all expectations of a professional publisher. Our cooperation is characterized by mutual trust, great creativity, and great joy. In particular, I appreciate the response that I receive continuously. Your sensitivity to the text gives confidence and my book could not end up in safer hands! Thank you once again for all the work and all the time you put into my script. Through Lange, a new door has been opened and I have the pleasure of continuing to write”
