Welcome Potential Hellgate Authors!

We are always looking for interesting, well-written manuscripts that fit with our overall mix and mission. We are interested in the following subjects/genres:

  • Non-fiction Veteran Memoirs or Non-fiction Military History.
  • Non-fiction Adventure Travel tales are always welcome, particularly if you have accomplished some extraordinary feat such as walking around the world or sailing solo across the Atlantic.
  • Well written, fast-paced Historical or Adventure Fiction
  • Books for Children, Teens and Young Adults for our newest imprint, Paloma Books.

Quality: We do not expect you to be a published author nor have an absolute mastery of prose. In fact, many of our books come from first-time authors. But, it is a good idea to make sure your query/proposal and manuscript are free of typos and grammatical errors. 

Submissions: We prefer a brief query email with a synopsis of what your story is and who you are. If you sufficiently pique our interest, we will then ask for a formal proposal or the entire manuscript. At this time, we accept ONLY email submissions. No paper via snail mail and NO phone pitches please.

Turn Around Time: We will try to respond to your query within 14 business days. If you have not heard from us in that time, please feel free to email us to see if we are interested. If we do respond, we will ask for either an in-depth proposal or the entire manuscript. From that point, our response time varies, but is typically no more than 3-4 weeks. 



Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
