From the Down The Shore Publishing guidelines:

As a small regional publisher, we must limit our efforts and resources to our established market: New Jersey, the Jersey Shore, the mid-Atlantic, and seashore and coastal subjects.


We specialize in regional histories; pictorial, coffee table books; literary anthologies; and natural history titles appropriate for our market. As a rule, we do not publish poetry, memoirs, or personal histories, although we have included these genres in anthologies. We love great fiction - it is a thrill to read great unpublished writing - but rarely publish it. There are exceptions to these generalizations, however, and we will consider any exceptional work appropriate to our market.
