We like to build a relationship with our authors and their work, which is why Passager Books only considers manuscripts from writers who have first been published in our journal. Submit during one of our reading periods so we can get to know you!

We offer two options for bookstore ordering: through Small Press Distribution and through consignment.

You can visit Small Press Distribution at to order most of our titles.

Our consignment rate is 60:40, offering bookstores a 40% discount on cover prices. If you are interested in ordering directly from Passager, please email your order to

Upcoming titles will be available for pre-order up to 6 weeks before their publication date, while the book is still being produced at the printer. This means that several weeks may pass between the time you place your order and the time the book arrives in your mailbox.

Books for pre-order will be specified as such on the individual book’s page on our website, and again on it’s page on the online store. Titles otherwise unmarked are currently in stock.
