Kelp Books is an independent press located in Pebble Beach, California. The press seeks to discover new talents and publish brave, off-beat, and adventurous fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

 

We're looking for submissions of literary, crime, thriller, mystery, and horror manuscripts. A sense of place is important to us, and while no place is excluded from our appetite, we strongly prefer coastal themes, West Coast locales, surfing, and works that embody travel and adventure.

We will consider novel-length (70,000-120,000 word) manuscripts. We also consider short story collections, poetry, and non-fiction.

No agent is required in order to submit. Please submit via Submittable. 

General questions can be submitted below.
