The Traditional Process

The world of publishing is changing for authors,

opening the door to quality fiction like never before in history.


Our mission, and because we are passionate about historical fiction, is to offer


several different platforms in this ever-changing world.


The traditional model is just as any regular traditional publishing platform. All manuscripts must go through the regular submission process.

You do not have to have an agent. 

All books are read and you will get an answer back if your book is accepted within 4 weeks. Why do we publish ebooks with the traditional model?

Good question. It is because we can get your ebook out faster to the consumer, which means faster sales and exposure for your book!

And now, with our Royal Traditional Platform, by using our editor for developmental and copy editing services, your book can go straight to traditionally published in one quick step.

Do we still offer the hybrid platform? Yes! Why? Because for all who may have used outside editorial services, we still want to be able to offer a publishing platform under our imprint.

Why do we not give advances to the author if the book is accepted?

Another great question. It is because we offer a higher royalty rate (10% higher than most traditional publishers), plus we offer custom cover design, copy-editing, formatting, and marketing, plus more... all on our dime.

This is the fastest way to see your work in print...

to become the published author you've always wanted to be.

The Hybrid Process

This is an investment in YOU, in your novel, and your dreams. While you invest up front, you retain 100% of the profits on all sales, plus all your rights, and all the creative control. We are here to support that dream

with our expertise in the field of publishing.

We are not a self-publishing platform, since most of those (like KDP) allow anything to be published regardless of the quality. We use the time-honored tradition of vetting manuscripts to ensure readers receive a worthy story, and you receive the praise for your efforts as an author.

Old Book



Submit the first 50 pages of your manuscript, along with a short synopsis (not to exceed 2-3 paragraphs), and a query letter.


Two-tier Vetting Process

Tier 1 of the submissions process will place you on one of two tracks—our Publishing Track or Coaching Track. Submissions placed on the Publishing Track proceed to Tier 2, which involves a second assessment that determines publish-readiness.

Submit Your Manuscript

At Historium Press, our submissions process is more than just 'click, buy, and publish'. The two-tiered submissions process gives you the opportunity to get feedback from reviewers who are in the business, as well as our internal editorial staff, which gets your project ready for publication. If it already is, we’ll notify you of the 'go ahead'. If it needs a bit more work, you’re going to find out why and what to do about it.
