Highland Press is looking for outstanding manuscripts of all time genres—with the exception of erotica. We want historicals similar to what many of us grew up with and fell in love with. This does NOT mean we want manuscripts with history dumps! Please ensure the history is sprinkled throughout your manuscript and your historical facts are accurate.
While we have predominantly focused on historicals to date, this does not mean we are not willing to consider well written stories of every time period. We’ve released several Young Adult books, including our first Young Adult inspirational, and are currently working on two children’s picture books. We also have a non-fiction reference book we believe every author will want to have.
Please direct all email queries in the body of an email (no unsolicited attachments) to: Submissions.email@example.com
General questions about Highland Press Publishing should be addressed to: The.Highland.Press@gmail.com
If you wish to send a partial query via regular mail, please send the necessary cover letter, brief synopsis, marketing plan, and the first three chapters.
