OUR GOAL: Publish and promote quality works by authors from Provincetown and the Lower Cape. Regional works are sometimes ignored by large publishing houses because their sales are not high enough to return the investment. 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, westerns, science fiction, fantasy, plays, or screenplays.

PLEASE QUERY VIA EMAIL using the email address on the bottom of this page. Be sure to include the word “Query” and the title of your book in the subject line. Below your query letter, PLEASE PASTE IN THE FIRST FIVE PAGES of your manuscript (but do not attach those pages as a separate file). While queries are important, sample text is the best way for us to get to know your writing and to evaluate your work.  PLEASE ALSO INCLUDE A ONE PAGE SYNOPSIS. For extra points, please list any previous publications and include your social media and website links if applicable. All documents should be submitted in Times Roman, 12 point font.

Thank you
