We'd love to invite you into the joy of publishing a book. We believe our unique "pay it forward" philosophy allows authors to support ministries they care about while using their creativity to invest in the work of God in this world. We also understand that this isn't for everyone (since you won't make any money from your book directly). On the other hand, if you are a new author or established author who wants to build their audience, create a cost-effective book to impact the world, or give back to a ministry they care about, then we are the publishing company for you!
If you are accepted, we won't charge you anything to work with your book. That doesn't mean it's free. There are costs associated with getting a book published, but you will pay these costs directly. They include things like editors, book doctors, and set-up fees with the print-on-demand service. In general, it will cost you at least $500 to get your book to the printer and on amazon.
What we provide, free of charge, is limited marketing, coaching, connections, graphic design, and overall book layout.
