MISSION POINT PRESS offers aspiring and veteran authors more than 70 years of combined experience in writing, designing and publishing the written word.

For authors seeking a traditional route to publishing, we offer an in-depth query service to agencies. We also employ award-winning, traditionally published authors for those who need coaching or ghost writing.

MISSION POINT PRESS, based in Traverse City, Michigan, 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 are part of an honest and experienced team and your book will be a part of our catalog of best-sellers.
