MISSION POINT PRESS offers aspiring and veteran authors more than 70 years of combined experience in writing, designing, and publishing the written word. We are an affiliation of talented professionals who have worked on every kind of book you can imagine—from two New York Times best-sellers about war to gorgeous cookbooks, award winning fiction, political exposés, memoir and self-help.

For authors seeking a traditional route to publishing, we offer in-depth query service to agencies.

MISSION POINT PRESS also employs award-winning, traditionally published authors for those who need coaching or ghost writing.

MISSION POINT PRESS is a hybrid publisher, meaning that we publish our own books under the Mission Point Press imprint, as well as the authors who work with us. Self-publishing can be lonely and overwhelming, but with Mission Point Press, you're part of an honest and experienced team and your book will be a part of our catalog of best-sellers.

MISSION POINT PRESS is always on the look-out for outstanding editorial and book design talent. Send a resume or portfolio to
