TSHA Press: Information For Authors

TSHA Press is the state’s longest-running publisher of books on Texas history, having published our first volume in 1918. Through the years, we have established a reputation as a publisher of high-quality books on a wide variety of topics, including exploration, biography, architecture, historic sites, high school football, labor unions, and suburbanization.

Today, our areas of publishing concentration are short (120 pages or less), accessible histories of the important, places, events, and people in Texas history in our Fred Rider Cotten Popular History Series; topics relating to the Republic of Texas in our recently launched Watson Caufield and Mary Maxwell Arnold Republic of Texas Series; and reprinting many valuable first-hand accounts from Texas history and essential histories of the state in our Fred H. and Ella Mae Moore Texas History Reprint Series.

We accept manuscript submissions for the Fred Rider Cotten Popular History Series and the Watson Caufield and Mary Maxwell Arnold Republic of Texas Series, and we welcome suggestions from the general public for books to reprint in the Fred H. and Ella Mae Moore Texas History Reprint Series.
