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.
