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 the home of surf noir. We are looking for submissions of literary, crime, thriller, and mystery. 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.

Please refer to our submissions page or Submittable for more information. 

General questions can be submitted below.
