Find out how 22nd Century Press can assist you in freeing the book in you. Not only do we publish books in the traditional model (6 books per year), we also provide coaching, education, ghostwriting, editorial, design, marketing, distributing and printing assistance to the self-published author with our My Century affiliate.
Request Manuscript Submittal Information Today
Please do not send manuscripts before reviewing guidelines.

We created My Century specifically to help self-published authors make the best book possible. It's a mash-up of subsidy, pod, and traditional publishing. We provide coaching, pay royalties and take submissions, however we do not accept all manuscripts for publication.

We partner with our authors to create a high quality, well-designed, salable book; not a quick, get-it-out-there-in-a-minute unprofessional job. We offer sincere editing and criticism aimed at making the author successful.

Before you choose another publishing solution - give us a call. Quality and personal service is the 22nd Century Press and My Century difference.

This drive kicks off our goal to raise $10,000 in the next year for the White Cots School Centre in Kenya and to supply them with all types of books - fiction and non-fiction, especially text books. Each book costs 40 cents to send to Africa. It costs us 40 cents per book to ship them to the Minnesota BFA warehouse. That's why we ask for a minimum donation of $1.00.
