Do you have a book or documentary for publication?
If you already have a typescript and want us to have a look at it, we are all eyes and ears. If we like your typescript and if we think it fits into our program, then we are more than happy to take care of all of the following things: editing, formatting, layout, proofing, peer review, cover design, promotional material, eBook conversion and the actual printing, including market introduction and distribution in the U.S., UK, continental Europe, Australia, Canada and ost of the other larger markets of the world. Please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Are you thinking of writing a book or making a documentary?
We are always happy to welcome new authors in our ranks, be they established scholars with an impressive list of publications would like to finally tell the truth, no matter what, or novices who want to get their feet wet for the first time, or anything in between. We've dealt with it all. We also have a long wish list of topics we'd like to have covered.
Note: Some of our authors use pseudonyms to protect themselves from persecution and prosecution. We are absolutely dedicated to keeping these pseudonyms secret. We even recommend that you use one, if you haven't "outed" yourself yet as a revisionist and have anything to lose. And you don't even ever need to tel us who you really are, if you prefer this.
ContractsAuthor contracts are negotiated individually. Usual financial conditions for better-selling titles include a 50% royalty on the payments we receive from sales via Amazon (hard copy and Kindle, as long as they don't censor us...) and through our distributor. We usually grant 15% on turnovers from direct sales out of our own stock. Slow-selling, special-study titles usually come with a one time payment in advance of their publication.

Languages: CHP accepts material in the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.
Media Types: CHP accepts two types of media: written (books and brochures) and video (documentaries). In case of the latter, we require that a written transcript be submitted as well, for this will be used for subtitles and will also be published on-line and in print.
Requirements of Content:
Topics: Castle Hill Publishers have their main focus on dissident literature and documentaries on World War II in general and the Holocaust in particular; a secondary focus is on civil rights and their violation, with a focus on freedom of speech and of scientific inquiry, in particular if dissent on World War II history is the trigger. CHP prefers new and hitherto unpublished typescripts, but we consider republishing material of special merit as well;
Style: Systematic structure; objective; support of factual statements with references; separation of opinion from factual statements; no ad-hominem attacks; no advocating for, or justification or condoning of, the violation of anyone's civil rights.
Structure and Formatting: There is no restriction regarding the length of book manuscripts or documentaries. However, books require at least 100 pages to obtain a printable spine, and books with more than 800 pages might need to be split up into several volumes. Documentaries exceeding 2 hours strain the viewers' patience.
Book texts and longer documentaries ought to be structured into sections, using section headings for books, nested if appropriate (MS Word paragraph style: "Heading 1", "Heading 2", "Heading 3", etc.). Quotations in dedicated paragraphs need to be indented to set them apart from the body text (MS Word paragraph style: "Quote"). Place citations of sources into either foot- or endnotes, if possible (but not both). Use only standard font face and size for non-headline text (MS Word paragraph style: "Normal"). Limit italics to a minimum (journal names, video and book titles; foreign language expressions in English; emphasis, sparingly). Any other fancy formatting will be removed in many cases (bold, underlining) or even always (such as coloured (non-black) text). Avoid formatting columns with tab characters and use tables instead, as tabs cannot be rendered in html (web) formats. For more details on how to best format your text, see the Style Sheet further below.
Author Safety: For understandable reasons, we will also publish items produced by authors using a pen name, which will, of course, be treated highly confidentially, although we cannot accept liability for disclosure by other parties. Contributions sent in anonymously, which are also welcome, can only be published if their content is ready for print.
Data Carriers: We prefer electronic submissions either per email attachment to us (we will let you know the best address once we are in touch with you), or by mail using data carriers (SD card, USB stick, CD/DVD). For transferring larger files electronically, please get in touch to arrange for a file swap using a file-sharing service. Please abstain from sending in typed/printed material. The retyping/OCR processing required to fetch their content is a serious obstacle to us.
Text: We do our main text work with MS Word; the file formats of all major type-setting programs can be read, but for reasons of portability, file formats of *.rtf (Rich Text Format), *.html (HyperTextMarkupLanguage, i.e., Internet files), OpenDocument (*.odt) and primarily MS-Word files (*.doc, *.docx) are preferred.
Illustrations: Artwork can be submitted as *.gif, *.jpg, *.png, *.tif and also as hard copies, if needed.
Video/Audio: *.mp4; *.mp3; subtitle files: *.srt.
Procedure: We need to have a signed and dated contract with our authors/filmmakers. Once we accept an item, we will get in touch to negotiate the terms. You may use a pen name for the contract, but make sure you have witnesses of your identity with that pen name, in case of any legal need. Proofs of books/transcripts considered for publication will be sent to the authors whose email address we have. The editors reserve their right to determine the timeline for publication within contractual limits, if such exist. Royalties are paid according to the contract. Any other issue of this kind needs to be defined by the contract.
Should you agree to these conditions, we look forward to receiving your submissions.

Note: The following are guidelines. If your text does not follow them 100%, but is worth publishing anyway, we will work on your text to eventually comply with what we need, for which we may ask for your input in case of formatting ambiguities.
Use only standard font face and size for non-headline text. Limit italics to a minimum (journal names, video and book titles; foreign language expressions in English; emphasis, sparingly). Any other fancy formatting will most likely be removed (colored text, bold, underlining). Avoid formatting columns with tab characters and use tables instead, as tabs cannot be rendered in html (web) formats. If you are familiar with it, use standard paragraph styles for the body text (such as paragraph style "Normal" in Word), headings ("Heading 1", "Heading 2"… in Word) and quotes ("Quote" in Word). If you don't like how your typesetting program renders these paragraph styles, please change the definition of these style to suit your purpose. Do NOT change the text, as that change will probably be lost when we reformat the text after submission. (We reset paragraphs to their pre-defined paragraph style format, so we can start working with a clean slate.)
Words other than your own should be enclosed in double quotation marks and cited appropriately. For example: “The origins of the Nuremberg trials lay in the desire of the Allies as far back as 1943 to take revenge on the Nazi leadership, and punish the German people.”
Quotations of complete sentences or even paragraphs should be set off as block quotations, that is to say, indented. Please include quotation marks here as well, for if the indentation gets lost, it still can be identified as a quotation. Use a dedicated paragraph style for this, if possible (Word style: "Quote").
Use either endnotes or footnotes, but not both. Our automatic html and eBook conversion software will render any notes as endnotes.
When citing titles in other languages, respect the standards of the language in question for capitalization in titles.
We prefer the following formats of citations, but we are not picky. As long as a source can be unambiguously identified, and as long as you cite consistently throughout your work, it will be alright.
The order of information is Author(s) or Editor(s), Title, Edition (if not the first), Volume (if a single volume is being cited out of a multi-volume work, then also cite the Title of individual volume, if applicable), Series title (if applicable), Publisher, City, Year, Page numbers.
Example: Arthur R. Butz, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: The Case against the Presumed Extermination of European Jewry, Institute for Historical Review, Torrance, Calif., 1985, pp. 100-103.

Put URLs in standard Roman type, not in italics. Do not set them off in angle brackets <>
Note: When naming the city of publication, one need not indicate the state or country when that is commonly known or obvious from the name of the press itself. For example: Worchester, Mass. but not Boston, Mass. Vienna, Va. but not Vienna, Austria.
Note: Never use postal abbreviations for states in citations. For example, for Virginia, the abbreviation is Va., not VA. When in doubt, consult: http://www.stateabbreviations.us/
Acronyms and Initials
Set acronyms entirely in capital letters with no periods e.g., FBI not F.B.I.
Spell out acronyms the first time you use them, followed by the acronym in parentheses.
Italicize acronyms made up of non-English words (e.g., RSHA) unless the acronym also serves as a name (DEGESCH, not DEGESCH). Capitalize according to usage.
Do not capitalize the word revisionist.
Do capitalize the word Holocaust (when referring to the Jewish tragedy of 1941-45).
National Socialist not Nazi (unless quoting – the term is a pejorative never used by members of that party).
Communist not Commie (unless quoting - the term is a pejorative never used by members of that party).
In general, titles of individuals are capitalized only when used with person's name, e.g., President Roosevelt, Professor Faurisson, Queen Elizabeth.
Centuries and Decades
Spell out references to particular centuries, e.g. Twentieth Century not 20th century.
No apostrophe before s when specifying a decade or century, e.g., 1940s not 1940's.
Make sure that dates follow a consistent format. Do NOT use mere numbers, but always use at least a three-letter abbreviation for the month, if not the entire month, e.g., 18 December 1982; or Dec. 18, 1982.
For English texts, foreign words should be set in italic type, e.g., Einsatzgruppen, Führer. For other languages, please respect the standards of the language in question.
Proper names with foreign words: for English texts, italicize the foreign words, but not the proper-name part e.g., Gruppe Arlt not Gruppe Arlt.
Usually, numbers are spelled out up to "ten," and numerals are used for 11 and higher.
Follow American, not British spelling, e.g., color, not colour.
World War One and World War Two or First World War and Second World War are preferred to World War I and World War II. Never use WWI and WWII.
