Developing books & careers
Proud publisher of great writers and gifted storytellers.
Kirk House Publishers was founded in 1994 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At Kirk House, we believe that a good book can fuel the imagination and inspire humanity. That is why we publish books with a cause, books that inspire and make the world a better place.
We love books! Kirk House authors understand the steadfast desire and dedication we bring to publishing their work. Our growth over the years has been incredible, and our goal is to continue discovering gifted authors. We like working with writers to develop their books and careers over the long term.
Kirk House Publishers is a hybrid publisher. A hybrid press or hybrid publisher is a publishing house that operates by combining self-publishing and traditional publishing. Hybrid publishing is based on a contribution to cover initial production and printing of the work to be paid by the author. We offer a competitive royalty and work with the author to support their cause.
We are also different from other publishing companies because we manufacture all our published books at our facility. So we not only handle the publishing but the production process as well.
At our shop, we understand that as publishers/printers, we have to be responsible for the materials that we use as well as how they affect our earth.
We reduce our energy usage by shutting off our machines when not in use. We reuse packaging materials – paper comes in wrappers, and we use those as packaging for our daily shipments. We save materials by using as many recycled papers as we can, and we are moving to replace the bulk of our stock with a higher percent of recycling content. We use biodegradable envelopes for shipping books.
For every Kirk House, Publisher package option sold, we will donate to one tree planted.
Authors who wish to have their book considered for publication by Kirk House Publishers will need to fit our submission guidelines.
