About Terra Sancta Press

Founded 1996

Welcome to Terra Sancta Press. We favor books that appeal to an educated general audience: fiction and creative non-fiction; history; humor; some how-to; memoirs; limited-edition family histories; novels, and topics of special interest to the Terra Sancta Press’ management. We like books in the Humanities that give new insight. You will find memoirs, oral history, military history, historical novels, fiction, hard-science fiction, and creative non-fiction books in our catalog. Query first. We do not accept unsolicited manuscripts. All work selected for publication will be subjected to a rigorous editorial screening.

Since some books we have published are limited-editions, they do not appear in this web store.

All books published by Terra Sancta Press are 100% made, printed, bound, and published in the USA.
