Tell your story and document your legacy. We are here to help you publish your book.
As a leading inspirational and faith
publisher, Kharis Publishing is committed to publishing the message that
has been given to you, to help you “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 will publish your book and
distribute it, free of charge. Editing, colorful cover design, ISBN,
Library of Congress cataloging, distribution etc.? Yes, all on us, as it
From the start, our mission has been two-fold:
- Provide an innovative publishing platform for professionals, businesspersons, 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.
- The second part of our mission is to provide mini libraries/resource centers to select orphanages in developing countries, so that these amazing kids may learn to read, write, and dream of a better future. When you publish or buy a book through Kharis Publishing, you are a huge part of giving the gift of literacy to these orphans.

Andrew Chatora: author of “Harare Voices and Beyond”
Andrew Chatora is a Zimbabwean novelist, essayist and short-story writer based in Bicester, England. He grew up in Mutare, Zimbabwe, and moved to England in 2002. His debut novella, Diaspora Dreams (2021), was approvingly received and nominated for the National Arts Merit Awards (2022). His second book, Where the Heart Is, was published in the same year to considerable acclaim. Chatora’s forthcoming book, Born Here, But Not in My Name, is a brave, humorous and psychologically penetrating portrait of post-Brexit Britain. Chatora is noted for his acerbic and honest depiction of the migrant experience. Heavily influenced by his own experience as a black English teacher in the United Kingdom, Chatora probes multi-cultural relationships, identity politics, blackness, migration, citizenship and nationhood.
Kharis Publishing has been a blessing to me by giving me the opportunity to publish my testimony of God’s life changing truth in “Called to Truth”. They beautifully designed the cover of the accompanying study guide “Your Journey to Truth” to portray my heart for the book
After checking out their website and seeing that they support orphanages in Africa I was delighted and said yes! From the beginning I felt so welcomed and heard. They included me in every step of the process and responded to all my emails in a timely manner. It was such an efficient process. I had never written a book before and they were very patient and kind to me as I embarked on a new endeavor. I am beyond happy that I agreed to join Kharis Publishing!
While other publishers could not see past the unusual natural of my unique book project, Kharis Publishing took a chance on me and this unusual idea, and for that I am very grateful. They were very encouraging throughout the publishing process and the editor, Karen Herceg, was excellent in her suggestions, advice, and encouragement. On top of that, as an educator I love the fact that a portion of the proceeds of every book goes to provide orphans with literacy materials!
Kharis is a great christian publishing company. Their feedback is consistent and reliable. The staff is encouraging and wonderful to work with. I have so enjoyed my publishing experience with Kharis.
"Kharis Publishing allowed me to deliver my message to the world! While I received two other publishing offers, I decided to publish my book with Kharis because they simplified the process, allowed me freedom in all aspects of the process, and I wanted to participate in their support of magnificent social causes around the world. Thank you Kharis for believing in me and my message!"
We have developed an innovative system that leverages the traditional
publishing model and digital printing technology in a way that is

If your book is not entirely Christian in nature but simply a leadership, self-help, or business manuscript, then, you may want to consider Imprintos, the business imprint of Kharis Publishing group. Imprintos is a leading publishing and distribution house dedicated entirely to helping leaders, executives, and influencers publish their book, amplify their voice in print, and document their legacy for the next generation. As with all Kharis Publishing imprints, Imprintos will donate a portion of its proceeds to build resource centers or mini-libraries for orphanages in developing countries, so that those kids may learn to read, dream, and grow.
Imprintos is an independent book publisher, which means that there is no out-of-pocket cost to the author to publish, distribute, and promote their book. But this requires authors to purchase some copies of their books for personal promotional use during the initial press run – a great option for leaders, coaches, influencers, and motivational speakers.
For limited time, Imprintos is currently accepting unsolicited un-agented submissions with a focus on nonfiction (leadership, business, self-help, memoirs, health and wellness). Submit query to be considered for Imprintos.
HOW TO PUBLISH WITH KHARIS
Kharis Publishing may not be the right fit for every author. As an independent publisher, we take major risks in acquiring, publishing, and distributing your book at no upfront cost to you. However, Kharis is BEST only for:
- Authors with faith-based or inspirational messages that are wholesome and non-contradictory to a Christian worldview.
- Authors, such as pastors or speakers, who have some form of following and need a partner to publish and distribute their message in a book form to their followers.
- Authors who are willing to participate in joint promotional efforts, including readiness to do media interviews.
- Authors who are willing and able to purchase discounted author copies (50% discount off the retail price) for use in promotional activities, giveaways, book signing, personal website sales, etc. Note, however, that 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.
Kharis Publishing is NOT for you if: 1. you are not willing or able to put in effort to make your book successful or believe that once a publisher acquires your book, your job is completely done; 2. If you have reservation against print-on-demand (POD) technology. We proudly combine the benefits of traditional publishing with print-on-demand technology to meet distribution demands worldwide and save warehousing cost at the same time. Even the biggest publishers in the world now use POD to keep books perpetually in print!
For a limited time, we are accepting unsolicited submissions. Our current focus is on faith and inspiration/motivational nonfiction. Women, minority writers, first-time authors, pastors, and business leaders are encouraged to submit a query. Children Books? Only if you have illustrations ready.
Fiction? Yes, only if it is family-friendly, and has a unique selling point.
To submit a query, you must follow these simple steps:
- Read about author partnership above and then send a query. If we are interested in your work, we will request a full proposal.
- DO NOT send your full manuscript until one of our acquisition editors specifically asks for it.
- Your manuscript must have received initial professional editing and be polished before it gets to us.
