ABOUT KHARIS PUBLISHING & SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Kharis Publishing is a leading inspirational and Christian faith publisher. Our corporate commitment is to help you publish the word that God has given you, to “Write in a book what you see…” (Revelation 1:11, NASB). There is a message in your heart for the world; a message which only you seem to have seen or capable of seeing. It’s time to share it. We are committed to innovating the traditional publishing model in a way that enables you to share your message professionally and effectively. 

Mission

From the start, our mission has been two-fold: 

  • Provide a reputable publishing platform for Christian professionals, Christian business persons, pastors, workplace leaders to tell their story and share in a book form what God has put in their hearts, with a focus on under-represented writers, including women and first-time authors. As we have grown and branched out to all kinds of authors, we have remained true to this original mission. It has been truly an honor to be a part of telling your story.

     We are able to fulfill this mission because we have developed an innovative system that leverages the traditional publishing model in a way that is guaranteed to continue to benefit our authors and readers for years to come. Scroll down to learn more about our innovative traditional publishing model.

  • The second part of our mission is to provide resource centers to select orphanages in developing countries. While we have made some progress in this area and have already helped a couple of orphanages, we strive to do more. With your help and support, both as an author and a book buyer, we will grow in our impact on these orphans. 

History

We got our start from the campus of John Brown University in 2015. Since then, we have grown as a leading faith and inspirational publisher. We have also moved our headquarters from Arkansas to the greater Chicago area, IL.

Like all traditional publishers, there is no out-of-pocket cost to you at any stage. Editing, printing, and distribution? Yes, all on us, as it should be. We believe in your story. So, we empower you to tell your story in a way that glorifies God and inspires humanity, at no cost to you through our traditional publishing option. Kharis Publishing is an imprint of Kharis Media LLC.

Are you tired of submitting to the big publishers (and their agents) – Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon and Schuster, Macmillan, Penguin Books, WW Norton – and getting turned down each time? Kharis Publishing can help – the Word in you doesn’t have to be held back. Burned by unprofessional and predatory practices of some self-publishing platforms out there? Kharis offers a traditional option that gives you peace of mind. Stressed about navigating kindle direct publishing, kdp select, and all the other options from Amazon books? Kharis Publishing can save you all that stress, and free you to focus on writing your story and running your busy life.

Testimonial

I submitted my writing to a Christian book proposal website.  Kharis Publishing found my manuscript and contacted me.  I had not heard of Kharis but they have made me feel a part of them from the beginning.  They took time with me and patiently explained every step to me and answered all of my questions promptly.  They allowed me to be a part of the whole process. I also love their book/library program in Africa. So happy to be a part of it! I am excited to be a part of the Kharis Publishing Family!

Author Partnership

Author Partnership As a traditional publisher, we take all the risks in acquiring, publishing, and distributing your book. The least we ask from you is to demonstrate some commitment to the success of your book as well. Typically, our authors have shown their commitment in two ways:

 
  1. Aggressively promote the book in their circle of influence, especially within the first three months of the book’s release, in synergy with publisher’s efforts. We provide authors with a detailed step-by-step guide.
  2. Purchase discounted author copies (50% discount off the retail price) for use in promotional activities, giveaways, book signing, personal website sales, etc.

Note: While the average number of copies purchased by our authors (at 50% discount) varies from one author to another, it is not a pre-condition to acquiring your manuscript. Every submission is evaluated based on its merit during our rigorous acquisition process.
