Submission Guidelines

Submissions Guidelines Form

Submission Guidelines:


Patriot Media, Incorporated welcomes submissions from all writers desiring publication if the manuscript is well written and falls within our areas of interest.  Patriot Media publishes manuscripts with a military and/or patriotic theme, both fiction and non-fiction.  This isn’t to say we wouldn’t consider a well done manuscript of another genre, but we know from experience those are rare.  Please pay strict attention to our guidelines. To further assist us, please download a copy of our Author Submission Form, fill it out and return it with your submission. 


Submissions are only accepted from January through March of each year. materials submitted at any other time will not be reviewed or returned.

NOTE: Patriot Media, Inc. will only consider manuscripts in the following categories:
  • Military Unit mini-history manuscripts of 25,000 words maximum.
  • Military non-fiction and fiction manuscripts between 65,000 and 85,000 words.
  • Other book lengths may be considered on an individual basis, but only after review of the initial sample submission.

Before submitting any literary work to Patriot Media, please read the following conditions.


·        We do NOT publish manuscripts containing profanity, vulgar or controversial material. Please, no poetry, erotica, homosexual, science fiction or children stories.  

·        We do NOT accept simultaneous submissions. We have tried to be flexible on this issue, but time is too limited to spend it reading a manuscript only to be told it’s already been placed elsewhere.  

·        Be prepared to submit a plan for marketing your publication.

To further assist us, please download a copy of our Author Submission Form, fill it out and return it with a sample of your manuscript. Also, include a brief synopsis of your work.  Brief means no more than 1,000 words; less is better.
1.  Sample submissions must be from completed works.  Send the first three chapters or 30 pages of the manuscript typed in 12 point Times New Roman, doubled-spaced, single-sided.  We will not accept impact printed material, only inkjet or laser quality please.
