The Story

Who is behind KLR Literary Management?

Your literary fairy godmother

About Us

Oh, boy, do I have a story for you!

Meet Kirsten "Kiki" Ringer, the publishing powerhouse who's been making books happen since kindergarten. That's right, even as a wee little one, Kiki was penning page-turners like Ruby Diamond and the Jewel Thief. Move over, Dr. Seuss!


Fast forward nearly 30 years, and Kiki's still got that publishing magic in spades. She's worked at The Walt Disney Studios, Penguin Putnam, and even the fancy-schmancy Russell & Volkening Literary Agency in New York. You know, where all the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning authors hang out.


But here's the thing: Kiki saw how stressed out writers were getting with the publishing process, and she knew she had to do something about it. Enter KLR Literary Management, the brainchild of a woman who just wants authors to focus on what they do best: writing. Kiki's like a literary fairy godmother, helping writers with everything from production to marketing to distribution. Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!


When she's not busy being a literary superhero, Kiki's all about that zen life. She's a 500-hour certified yoga instructor and mindfulness guru. And if you're wondering where she gets all that energy, just know that she's also a triathlete. Yeah, we're tired just thinking about it.


But don't worry, Kiki's got her chill time too. She loves nothing more than snuggling up with her two Dobermans, probably reading a good book. And if you want to see her really get fired up, just mention college football. Roll Tide, baby!

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.

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.
