About Mythic Roads Press

Welcome to Mythic Roads Press, a newly established publisher with a focus on highly engaging and memorable fantasy, science fiction, and romance.

Mythic Roads Press was founded in 2023 by Patricia Veldstra. Since completing the Certificate in Publishing program at Toronto Metropolitan University, Patricia has served as Project Coordinator at the Book Publishers Association of Alberta, and she has also worked with many authors and other organizations as a freelance print and digital book designer.

Submissions are currently open for full-length novels in the fantasy, science fiction, and romance genres. See the submissions page for more information!

  • Do you charge fees for submissions or publishing?
    Absolutely not! As a traditional publisher, authors are not expected to pay for any part of the publishing process.
  • What rights are you looking for?
    We are looking for worldwide English print, digital, and audio rights.
  • How long will you take to respond to my submission?
    Most submissions will receive a response with a decision on their book within 2-3 months, or earlier.
  • Do you pay advances? What are your royalty rates?
    As Mythic Roads Press is brand new we are unable to pay advances right now (though hopefully that will change soon!) Royalty rates will depend on the format, but will range between 12-25%.
  • What can I expect if I get an offer/my book is published through Mythic Roads Press?
    Before signing, any offers will be accompanied by a sample contract for review. Authors will be encouraged to ask any questions they may have and we will discuss all the details in-depth to ensure that everything is fully understood and the final deal is beneficial for everyone involved. Mythic Roads Press will invest a significant amount into editing, production, distribution, and marketing all published titles. This will include, but is not limited to: - Editing, including at least a round of copyediting and proofreading before the book is published. No edits will be made without author consultation and approval. - Full facilitation & handling of the production and distribution of each title. Mythic Roads Press will be primarily responsible for all decisions on production (including the overall design/production of the print and digital versions, narrators for audiobooks, advertising collaterals, etc.), but the author will be consulted throughout the process. - Extensive pre- and post-publication marketing, including direct outreach to reviewers, ARC distribution, and print/digital advertisements where possible. Each book will have a simultaneous release in at least in print and digital (ebook) formats, and we will also aim to create audio versions of Mythic Roads Press titles where possible. Distribution will be worldwide.
