Redd Ink Press is a purveyor of knowledge and information for the serious firearms enthusiast. We are not a “self publishing” service or a “Vanity Press.” We are a trade publication that specializes in the rare and unique subject areas of arms and armament that many major publishing companies, in todays world, consider too politically incorrect to print. It is for the purpose of introducing and furthering this unique knowledge that Redd Ink Press was born.

For Authors:  We are looking for high quality, unique, and imaginative authors who write along the entire spectrum of firearms and bladed weaponry. We are primarily looking for works in the following subjects:

  • Gun Making
  • Airgun Smithing and Building
  • Knifemaking
  • Refrence works and collectors guides
  • Firearms and knife history
  • Supressor Technology
  • Do-It-Yourself/How to guides for the home builder.

Redd Ink also publishes books about archery, survival, gun and knife fighting, hacking, cyber warfare, security, and many other subjects so we will consider all submissions, but we are not interested in anything that would be considered in the public domain (reprinting what’s already available for free elsewhere). We are especially interested in authors who have already self-published their work and have shown the skills, tenacity, and attention to detail required to produce high quality work, but wish to bring their products to a wider marketplace without sacrificing the majority of their royalties or creative control. Our goal at Redd Ink Press is to enter into a true partnership with our authors and create high quality works that will stand the test of time and keep our customers coming back for more.

If you have a manuscript or an idea for a book, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and place the word Submission in the subject area. Do not forget to include your contact information and a sample of your work that is to be considered. We receive many submissions so it may take up to 60 days to receive an initial response from us regarding whether we are interested it publishing/re-releasing your work.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing all of your work!
