We are a traditional independent press located in Raleigh, North Carolina, and proudly accessible to all writers of finely crafted contemporary fiction, literary fiction, and historical fiction. Regal House has two imprints: Fitzroy Books that publishes Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction, and Pact Press, our social impact imprint, that publishes works that promote diversity, inclusion, and acceptance. We publish short story collections through our W.S. Porter Prize and poetry collections via our Terry J. Cox Poetry Award.
We are a traditional press, which means there is absolutely no cost to authors who publish with us.

Manuscript Reading Times & Acquisition Decisions
Have we requested a full manuscript from you? Please be aware that we typically require three to four months to complete our read of full-length manuscripts. Once the acquisitions editor has finished reading your submission, and if they would like to recommend publication to the RHP team, your manuscript will be discussed at the next scheduled quarterly acquisitions meeting, which fall upon the following dates:
Spring Acquisitions Meeting: January 15, 2020
Early Summer Acquisitions Meeting: April 15, 2020
Late Summer Acquisitions Meeting: July 15, 2020
Fall Acquisitions Meeting: October 15, 2020
The RHP team may ask you for additional marketing information that may be useful in our assessment.
