Self-publish your book!

Welcome to Otter Bay Books! We are based in Baltimore, Maryland and are the successor of Gateway Press, Inc., a company with a national reputation for excellence as family history publishers. Operated by the same people who ran Gateway Press, Inc., for nearly 35 years, Otter Bay Books helps people self-publish both hardback and paperback books, using offset and digital printing. With a full range of design and production services, we serve the genealogical community, publishing family histories, local histories, church histories and genealogical records — as well as the larger community, where we publish memoirs, poetry, religious books, military books, school histories and many other types of books.
