OUR GOAL: Publish and promote quality works by authors from Provincetown and the Lower Cape.
Large publishing houses sometimes ignore regional works because sales don’t always meet revenue expectations. By cost-sharing with the author, we strive to reach what we see as an extremely loyal and growing market.
OUR AREA OF FOCUS: Stories that take place on the Lower Cape are our top priority, although we do accept other works if time permits.
CATEGORIES WE PUBLISH: LGBTQ, Literary Fiction, General Fiction, Selected Non-fiction. (if you’re not sure, please do go ahead and send us a query!)
NON-FICTION: Our preference is for works about Provincetown and the Lower Cape.
FICTION: In fiction, we are interested in romance, thrillers, mysteries, and literary fiction.
WHAT WE DON’T HANDLE: We don’t publish erotica, children’s books, stories of abuse, westerns, science fiction, fantasy, plays, or screenplays.
