Q: What is Hellgate Press?
Started in 1997, Hellgate Press is named after the historic Hellgate Canyon on the Rogue River (just a few miles from our office), which was the first river in the United States to be designated as a wild and scenic river. So, we like to think that the books we publish reflect the rugged yet subtle nature of this incredible river canyon. While our primary niche is military history and veteran memoirs, we also specialize in non-fiction travel adventure and historical and adventure fiction.
Q: What is Grid Press?
We established Grid Press a few years back for those books that we want see published, but don't quite fit our Hellgate Press niche. Here you'll find books on such wide ranging topics as caring for elderly parents, humorous fiction with a political slant, and much more to come.
Q: How are your books distributed?
Our books are distributed nationwide to independent and chain booksellers and retailers, as well as discount houses, libraries, and book clubs. Midpoint Trade Books, with offices in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and Kansas City, represent and distribute our books to major retailers including Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million and others. Our ebooks are widely available through such retailers as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Bilo and many others.
Q: How do I submit a book proposal?
If you want to know if we would consider a particular topic before you submit a formal proposal, please DO NOT CALL to describe the book over the phone. Instead, email a brief query that includes an overview of your book and tells us a little something about you, the author. If we're interested, we'll ask to see a formal proposal.
For more on how to submit proposals to us, please see SUBMISSIONS.
