The Slightly Impertinent Offspring of Regal House Publishing
As the slightly impertinent offspring of Regal House Publishing, Fitzroy Books offers an appealing alternative for Young Adult, New Adult, and Middle Grade authors seeking publication, an alternative to the circuitous, lengthy route of traditional publishing and to the go-it-alone, often expensive, self-publishing avenue. We are a traditional independent press dedicated to the publication and promotion of high-quality YA, MG, and NA novels and—are passionate about supporting the writers who pen them. While the fictional subject of YA/NA literature often comprises teenage drama, we endeavor to remove all such sources of angst from the publishing process.
At Fitzroy, we pride ourselves on our open submission policy that doesn’t require an agent (though queries from literary or secret agents are welcome too!) While we are currently closed for submissions, we reopen our doors October 1st, 2017.
Fitzroy Books provides extensive in-house editing – a perk growing more unusual in the publishing world where the responsibility and expense of editing now routinely fall to authors.
We believe that authors should not be left to their own devices when it comes to marketing Fitzroy titles. Our staff provide pre- and post-publication marketing support for our authors.
We have the greatest respect for writers – which is why we maintain open submission policies, why we respond immediately to each and every query we receive, why we envision our relationship with writers as a partnership, why we cover all editorial costs, why we assist with online platforms and author websites, why we vigorously pursue myriad marketing avenues, and why we are proud to offer our authors who submit to us directly royalties that are considerably higher than the industry standard. It is also why we love what we do. Where else could we have the opportunity to rescue authors while conspiring to position ourselves as the heir apparent to current publishing dominions!
