Send your query to mail@khpbooks.com with the imprint name in the subject line (ex. Retro Rocket), title of the work, a synopsis in the body of the email and the first 10 pages of the manuscript attached in .doc format. Let us know if you have any questions before submitting.

KHP Publishers, Inc. and all of its imprints publish only ebooks at this time. Payment is 50% net royalties – no advance – paid on a quarterly basis.

Simultaneous submissions are okay. Response time will vary, but expect to receive a response in 1-4 weeks. Please do not send follow-up emails unless you place the book before you have received a response from us. Your book must be unpublished at the time of submission. Please do not send books in series that have already been launched by another publisher or that you are self-publishing. We will consider reprints, but only if your book has been out of print for several years or you have a large body of work.
