  • Would you like your travel book published?

    Are you working on a book you would like to have published? PS is actively seeking travel, recreation, nature and environmental themed books for publication. PS is a national award-winning travel book publisher, and we'd love to see what you have. Check our new author info page for submission requirements.

  • Are you looking for a good book to read?

    PS sells direct to the public, sometimes at discounted prices lower than those found online. In addition to travel, we also offer our earlier books, including kids' titles, LGBT young adult books and the popular Not Your Mother's Book series. Visit our bookstore.

  • Does your business use travel stories and photos?

    If your business needs travel stories and photos, PS has a large collection of both. And we are continually adding new content pages each month. To review  stories and photos, please visit our sister website:

Changes at

Publishing Syndicate


We're making a few changes here at Publishing Syndicate. If you have followed our publishing efforts over the past decade, the first thing you will likely notice is that we are refocusing our book publishing efforts on travel, recreation, nature and the environment. We will continue to promote all of our current titles, and our Not Your Mother's Book series will go on an extended hiatus.


Why the change? We love traveling, learning about history and meeting new people. Plus, we have won national awards for our travel writing and travel book publishing, so it makes sense to focus on what we love to do most and what we do best.


We are now looking for authors who have the same love for travel, outdoor recreation, nature and the environment. If you are one of those people and have a book inside you, please check our new author info page. We'd love to consider your work for publication.
