Maybe. Although your book will be available to bookstores for ordering, there is no guarantee that they will stock their shelves with your book. We encourage authors to contact bookstores in their areas and ask them to stock their books. Thankfully, we are not print on demand publishers. The high-end bookstores will not stock print on demand books.
Our distributor is the largest Christian-owned wholesale Christian product distributor in the U.S. This means that your book is available for order from online retailers like Amazon.com, Christianbook.com, major and independent Christian bookstores, Borders, Barnes & Noble, Ingram, Baker &Taylor and many more.
Yes we can. All you have to do is complete the contact form here with your details and we’ll send one to you. We strongly encourage our potential clients to request for samples.
No, we are not. A vanity publisher will publish almost any book so long as the author is willing to pay. We are different. We do not accept every manuscript. Vanity publishers do not screen for quality but we do. We are very serious about what we do.
No. Once your manuscript is approved, we offer you a non-exclusive contract. That is, you are free to publish your book with another publisher so long as we receive a 30-day written notice from you. Please be advised that if you publish the same book with another publisher, you cannot use the book cover or interior design.
Yes. This is very important because it gives your book a unique identifier. Also, bookstores will only stock ISBN-bearing merchandise. Hence, all books published by us are assigned ISBN numbers at no additional cost.
Absolutely not! We take pride in our services. We do not print on demand like other publishers. From the onset, you determine the number of books you want printed and everything is yours. This is a very cost effective way to recover your costs and make a profit.
First of all, send us an enquiry here and tell us what you want to do. We will ask you to send a sample of your work (5 pages) for evaluation. If accepted for publishing, then you will receive our author friendly publishing agreement, instructions for payment and the complete manuscript submission, a breakdown of the different phases of production and tentative release date.
