Author Guidelines

At Adventure Publications, our forte is nature, outdoors and regionally themed books. We are a traditional publisher and would be happy to consider your manuscript for publication. Please read the author FAQ below:

What should I send?

At the very least, introduce yourself in a cover letter and provide a sample chapter and an outline of what the entire book will cover. But feel free to send as much as you can—the entire manuscript if it’s completed.

We also ask that you explain who you think the target audience would be; share any concepts you might have about the book’s formatting and design (optional); and especially if your book is nonfiction, describe your credentials as they relate to the topic.

Finally, be sure to include your contact information.

Should I include my artwork?

You are welcome to send copies of any relevant artwork, but you are not required to do so. Please do NOT send originals.

Will I get my submission back?

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we are unable to return them. So please do not send originals or one-and-only copies.

How much will I have to pay to get my book published?

Nothing. We are a traditional publisher, so our authors do not pay us. We pay them, in the form of royalties, as their books sell.

How long will it take for you to get back to me?

To provide a fair review for each submission, we take our time in considering them. Please be respectful of this process and allow up to six months for us to contact you. If you have not heard from us after six months, you are welcome to follow up with a phone call.
