What We Don’t Do
We are firm in the belief that when God gives you a message, you need to share what God gives you. As needed, we clean up grammatical issues or anything that is potentially confusing to the reader. We do minor rewrites for clarity, flow, and design. If necessary, we will make edits that are more substantial. Rest assured it is not our intent to change your message. Write what God gives you.
We do not assume rights over your material. What you write is yours. You retain all legal rights to your work.
Sadly, we can make no guarantees that you will become a bestselling author overnight or ever. Although we do not handle marketing directly, we have added strategies for publicity. It's an indispensable education that covers essential public speaker training in structure, content, and delivery as well as tips to help you
Speakers write and writers speak. It's rare to get around that one. Public speaking is one of the best ways to get the word out about your book, so you might as well do it right. And, having your own book is one of the best ways to add credibility to your speaking. This training, which covers many essentials of public speaking, will get you well on your way to making effective presentations.
We specialize in Christian, nonfiction, perfect bound (softcover) books, not children’s picture books. The estimated time is 4 to 5 months from the official start date (when we receive your approved files, completed interviews, authorization, initial deposit, etc.). We will work with you toward a reasonable time if you need your book expedited.
Your investment is based on 115 maximum, finished page count, black and white interior. Expect an additional charge for color interiors, images, or longer books.
I look forward to an opportunity to work together because …
I love turning writers into authors!
As much as we would love to work with you, we cannot take on every project. If you would like, you may submit your manuscript for review to see if we will be right for this venture. Please be mindful this is a ministry. We prefer to limit our consideration of books to the realm of Christian non-fiction. and those books which have a positive and uplifting message.
Expect a minimum of 3 weeks for review.
