For Buffalo Heritage Press, we want Buffalo authors telling Buffalo stories. We want to celebrate the renaissance of this great city—and prove that Buffalo, New York, is more than just another snow storm. These books can be fiction set in Buffalo, but more often than not, they are nonfiction—and frequently they are great gifts for Buffalovers.

  • A brief synopsis or abstract (1-2 paragraphs) for nonfiction; a complete manuscript for fiction
  • An author bio and/or resume noting the author’s credentials and previous publication credits (if any
  • A complete table of contents and an estimated length of manuscript in words
  • The author’s marketing outline, definition of the book’s target audience, a paragraph describing your books unique advantages, and a paragraph discussing the author’s ability and willingness to participate in marketing their book
  • A list of comparable or competing titles (including title, author, ISBN, release date/year and price point) and how your book is similar and different

Please fill out the form below with the information listed above to have your manuscript considered for publication.

Rick Azar. For many, this name evokes a wave of wistful nostalgia. A member of the charismatic trio “Irv, Rick and Tom” on WKBW-TV that dominated the Western New York and Southern Ontario airwaves for nearly two decades, Rick Azar tells engaging stories about so many historical beginnings.
