About Flint Hills Publishing

Since its inception in 2015 by founder and president Thea Rademacher, JD, Flint Hills Publishing (FHP), has been dedicated to creating books with messages that uplift, educate, inspire, and entertain. A former social justice attorney, Rademacher has no patience for the mistreatment of creative people and strives to make the working relationship one that uplifts and empowers.

FHP understands the amount of intellectual and creative energy it takes to write a book. Our staff works to honor those efforts through our commitment to ethical treatment of those we work with. We strive to be clear about what we will provide, communicate in a timely manner, adhere to deadlines, and listen while giving guidance.

A highly selective hybrid press, Flint Hills Publishing reviews submissions carefully, looking for work that fits our mission. We also want to make sure we can provide the type of publishing service a particular project requires.

We recognize that each author’s project is unique. Consequently, a financial arrangement for each project is individually tailored, based on several elements that we discuss with our clients. As there is an upfront investment for us to publish your book, we contractually clarify our agreement and obligations, not only for FHP but also each author and their project.

Clear communication between publisher and author is a core principle of our press. Because lifting the vibe of the world is what Flint Hills Publishing is all about.
