Regional/Local History Authors Sought

Just caught this interesting announcement:

The History Press is searching for historians and archivists who are interested in publishing regional and local history books about Massachusetts and Connecticut.

History Press books focus on a particular town or region. We have developed a variety of series that 1)provide authors with guidance on how to present their work and 2)attract readers and encourage sales. We also accept books for publication on history subjects not captured by the series we have established.

The History Press is a traditional trade publisher, meaning that we handle all stages of publishing including financing, sales, marketing, and distribution and compensate in the form of royalties. We are not a vanity press. For more information and to view our catalogue, see or e-mail the New England Commissioning editor, Maureen Benes.

For more information, read the full announcement at H-Net and/or visit the publisher’s Web site.
