Welcome to Van Velzer Press

Traditional Publishing House
Independent / Family Owned / Small Yet Diverse Staffing


Van Velzer is thrilled to put many titles under contract each year. Each title is submitted to our Advisory Board for review; and must display a tight and elegant mastery of the craft of writing (no drafts no debut books unless they are outstanding), an author with an attitude of teamwork and willingness to polish their manuscript, an author with a full marketing plan and a substantial fan base to back that plan up.

Van Velzer puts a substantial amount of time and money into every manuscript accepted. The competition is very high for this type of partnership.
