Our mission at Bald Cypress Books is to preserve little slices of Delmarva history and culture in print, so we’ll consider publishing any manuscript that contains interesting information about the peninsula and its fine residents. Quality of writing is less important than local content;  we’re not trying to publish the next great American novel.

We’re interested in publishing local  histories, memoirs, old journals, collections of letters, reprints, and genealogical works from the beginning of time through last Tuesday.

Our hardcover and paperback books are distributed via Ingram to most major online retailers, and discounted copies are available to brick-and-mortar bookshops.

Bald Cypress Books does not publish ebooks. You already spend way too much time looking at a screen.

Please direct all inquiries to Chris Slavens at, and include as much information about your project or idea as possible, or use the contact form.

Discounted copies are available to retailers or any other party interested in selling multiple books (i.e., a historical society). When ordering directly from printer/distributor Ingram, a predetermined discount will be applied automatically. Local booksellers and organizations should contact us directly.
