The Story

Who is behind KLR Literary Management?

Kirsten "Kiki" & Seven

Just Who Is Behind KLR Literary Management

Kirsten "Kiki" Ringer's passion for publishing began in kindergarten when she wrote her first book, Ruby Diamond and the Jewel Thief . With nearly 30 years in the publishing and entertainment industries, her experience includes The Walt Disney Studios, Penguin Putnam, and the venerable Russell & Volkening Literary Agency in New York, where she worked with Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors.

With a keen eye for the challenges authors face in the ever-evolving world of publishing, Kiki established a mission to change the narrative of the publishing industry by providing an accessible, holistic approach to marketing and publishing books. Be it through traditional publishing avenues or independent endeavors, Kiki understands that every author requires steadfast assistance from someone they trust.

The culmination of this being KLR Literary Management, which was created on a basic principle of giving writers a place where all they do is write. Kiki takes the overwhelm out of your entire book publishing process - from concept to book launch party and beyond - and guides you with savvy and skill. She prides herself on the commitment made to every author and their career as a whole.

Kiki is a 500-hr certified yoga instructor and mindfulness practitioner. When she’s not training for a triathlon, she’s most often found snuggling her Dobermans. Though she does take off Saturdays during the fall to watch college football.

Is there any guarantee that my book will become a bestseller if I choose your publishing service?

As much as we would love to guarantee that your book will be a hit, unfortunately, we can't predict the whims of the reading public. But we can promise to provide you with the best support and resources to help your book reach its full potential.

I'm torn between traditional, hybrid and self-publishing - what should I do?

That's a tough one! It really depends on your personal goals and preferences. Traditional publishing offers the benefit of a larger audience and more resources, while self-publishing gives you more creative control and higher royalties. Hybrid is right in the middle. We're happy to help you explore all your options and find the best fit for you. Check out this resource to help you decide.

How do I market my book without being too pushy?

We totally get it - promoting yourself can be uncomfortable! But there are plenty of effective, non-pushy ways to market your book. We can help you develop a marketing plan that feels authentic and fits your style.

What is literary management, and how is it different from a publisher or agent?

Literary management provides authors with a dedicated team that handles all aspects of their career, from book development to marketing to rights management. Think of us as a one-stop-shop for authors who want to focus on what they do best: writing! We work closely with you to build your brand and grow your audience, all while taking care of the business side of things.

... where all you do is write.
