Welcome to Kahala Press

About Kahala Press

Established in 2010, Kahala Press is an independent publisher based in Hawaii. We actively extend our services to those who wish to self-publish and pride ourselves on bringing innovation and affordability to your projects, no matter how big or small they might be.

The Internet has changed the book world. Over 750,000 books (including e-books) are published each year in the United States and more than half of them are self-published. With sites such as Create Space, anyone can now publish a book; however, the real questions are:

How do you maintain quality?
And how do you stand out in the crowd?

If you want your work to get the recognition it deserves, then you need assistance and this is where we can be of the most help, especially if you want to convert your content into a video format. 

The statistics are not looking promising for authors. On average, most new authors can expect to sell only 2,500 copies of their book, if that. And to make matters worse, more and more publishers are doing less and less while expecting their authors to do more and more.

The truth is if you want to make a living as an author or creating content, you cannot do every single thing by yourself. You can certainly try on a small scale, but on a larger scale, it is just too much for one person to manage, and more than likely, quality and distribution will suffer. In the publishing business, quality is king and distribution is queen, and just how much can one person do?

If you have an idea for a self-published project, please consider consulting with us.
