For the Christian Author
Many Christian authors today are choosing to self-publish their books, and for good reason! Self-publishing allows you to maintain creative control and ownership of your book while keeping a lot more of the profits than traditional publishing. However, choosing to act as your own publisher basically means that you’re going into the publishing business, which requires time, work, and cost. The good news is you don’t have to start the journey of self-publishing without a map! Over the years, I have consulted with many authors and walked with them step-by-step through the process of writing, publishing, and promoting their books. In this compact guide, you’ll find all the basic information you need to start your self-publishing journey — from cover design, editing, printing, and more to the importance of selecting the right platform for promotion and distribution.
A Christian Author's Biggest Hurdle
Do you feel like the Lord has called you to write a book, but you wrestle with the idea of self-promotion? A whole chapter is dedicated to discussing why your book is an agent of Kingdom expansion and legacy, and serves as a gift only you can give to the world. The world needs to hear what you have to say!
How I can Help You
With more than 15 years of experience in both traditional publishing and self-publishing, I have walked first-time authors and New York Times best-selling authors through the publishing process hundreds of times. I’ve created simple, yet effective checklists that take you from A to B without any of the guess work and provide all the know-how to get your book not only into your hands, but the hands of those who need your message.
