KPLA Publishing

Kissed Publications and Literary Agency, founded in 2003 by Kimberly T. Matthews, represents and e-publishes African-American mainstream fiction, Christian fiction and inspirational non-fiction works, consistently building productive working relationships with editors that help us advise you and guide your work toward the most appropriate markets. Our main focus is to represent literary fiction and non-fiction books for adults. We do not market poetry, magazine articles, screenplays, or scripts. In addition, we do not represent science fiction, mystery, fantasy, extraordinary violence, unnecessary profanity, or gratuitous sexuality. We digitally publish works, encompassing acquisition, copyediting, graphic design, production, printing, sales marketing and distributing on electronic platforms.

With the steady decline in brick and mortar bookstores (most recently the complete liquidation of Borders/Waldenbooks), and physical books going out of print every year, it is imperative that authors look at other avenues to deliver works to readers. As technology advances, more and more readers are converting to the ease and convenience of ereaders like Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and Ipad.
