Absolutely! We understand that a one-time payment may not suit everyone's financial situation. Hence, we have crafted an installment plan to help you manage your payments comfortably. In this plan, we slightly adjust the total cost to $472 to accommodate the administrative overheads. You can kick-start your journey by paying 50% upfront, with the remainder due by the author submission deadline. This allows you to balance your budget effectively while making your publishing aspirations come true!

- A chapter dedicated to your story in our multi-author book, accessible globally on Amazon in Kindle and paperback form.
- A highly targeted marketing and PR campaign to optimize sales during the critical launch period.
- A realistic chance to become an International Best-Selling Author, a feat we have achieved multiple times!
- The privilege to purchase physical copies at wholesale prices for your loved ones or local community.
- Customized book cover design and interior formatting.
- Inclusion of your author bio in the book.
- Display of your photo (headshot) on the back cover of selected projects.
- Guidelines to set up your unique Amazon Author Page.
- U.S. Copyright.
- Press Releases delivered to high-profile publications like The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Washington Post.
Additionally, we offer optional premium services like professional in-house editing, writing coaches, and personalized author websites for a supplementary fee.
To craft a compelling tale, aim for a word count between 1,000 and 3,000. If your narrative is outside these limits, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We will gladly discuss how we can accommodate your unique storytelling needs.
To maintain consistency and fairness, we limit author bios to 400 words. This length is just right to offer readers a glimpse into your world without overshadowing the story you're sharing. Please note that bios should be written in the third person, for example, “John Doe lives in Texas with his family of four...”
Our publication timelines vary from project to project.
Of course! We would be happy to provide samples to inspire you. Reach out to us, and we'll promptly send examples your way.
For many of our projects, we do feature the author's photo on the book's back cover. To ensure quality and consistency, please provide a high-resolution image (minimum 300 dpi) in JPEG or PNG format. Ideal shots should be mid-range (including shoulders), set against a solid or muted background, professionally taken, and not full-body. Selfies are not suitable for this purpose.
Absolutely! We wholeheartedly support and encourage you to celebrate and promote your published work, be it in your community or church. Our mission is to spread the word of Jesus Christ far and wide - book signings are a fantastic way to do just that.
We aim to keep you updated throughout your publishing journey. Your Project Director will provide you with a projected release and launch date. Many of our books are released as quickly as the upcoming season!
Sure! First off, you'll receive a PDF copy of the book for a sneak peek. We ask that you compose a book review, ready for posting on Amazon on the big launch day. We want to kick-start the book launch with as many valuable initial reviews as possible.
Next, on the actual launch day, you and your fellow authors will amplify the buzz by offering a free Kindle version of the book on your social media platforms and email lists, but only for 24 hours! This strategy helps boost the book in Amazon’s best-seller rankings. With enough reviews, you stand a real chance of becoming an internationally recognized best-selling author, while sharing your inspirational insights about Jesus Christ.
If this process seems a bit overwhelming, don't fret! We'll guide you through each step, providing clear instructions along the way.
Of course! We offer comprehensive editing services. Our In-house Proofreading and Feedback Editor is available at $200 for up to 3,000 words. If you need more extensive support, our Premium Full Edits Editor provides structural edits, copy editing, thorough feedback, and proofreading at $300 for up to 3,000 words. You're also welcome to bring in an editor of your choice.
We understand authors might anticipate earning royalties. However, it's important to know that multi-author books often see modest retail sales, and profits are not as high as one might imagine. Additionally, any profits need to be divided equally amongst all authors. Instead of disappointing authors with minor royalty shares, we decided to put those funds to good use. All royalties from book sales are donated to Compassion International Charity, our chosen cause. You can learn more about their wonderful work at www.compassion.com.
We sustain ourselves through profits from wholesale book orders and any surplus remaining from author fees after covering our production and marketing costs. Our aim is to balance economic viability while supporting worthwhile causes.
Yes, we believe in clarity and mutual understanding, so all authors are required to sign a formal agreement outlining each party's responsibilities. We will send a sample contract for you to review, ensuring you're fully aware of all important points.
Absolutely! We have an editorial panel who review each submission, ensuring that every piece aligns with our project and maintains our high quality standards.
Above all, your participation means spreading the word of Jesus Christ through your unique narrative. Besides this significant contribution, this project is a cost-effective way to become a published author, as production costs are shared among all authors. You get to focus on what you love - writing, while we manage the rest!
Joining a book compilation is also an excellent way to establish or bolster your writing platform, create a lasting legacy for your loved ones, give something meaningful as gifts, or aid a church fundraiser.
Yes, you can. However, please acknowledge the original publication in your Author Biography.
You certainly can! We only ask that you wait for six months from our launch date before republishing your work in other media outlets, blogs, or publications. You retain complete ownership of your work.
The King James Version is in the public domain, so feel free to use scriptures from it. For other versions, we recommend visiting https://www.biblegateway.com/versions/ Click on the Copyright tab for the Bible version you wish to use, and familiarize yourself with the guidelines. We'll ensure the total scripture usage is within legal limits.
Don't worry! If you can tell a story, you can write one. There’s lots of support and guidance we can offer. For example, we can point you towards online tutorials to assist with writing, and we offer editorial services as needed. We even have an in-house writing coach ready to assist you. If you have a message to share, we have the means to help your story reach the world.
While we encourage sharing authentic experiences, your content should avoid illegal, violent, sexually explicit, or defamatory elements that could harm any individual or entity. Changing certain details to protect identities is advisable. If your story involves sensitive subjects like abuse or trauma, we suggest you consult a legal expert. We also recommend obtaining written consent from anyone featured in your story. The publisher isn't liable for any legal issues arising from the author's work.
Certainly, as long as you provide a verifiable reference to the original source.
Yes, absolutely! While we publish your work, you remain the copyright holder of your story. This means you have the freedom to republish it elsewhere, subject to our six-month exclusivity period.
We welcome collaborations! If you wish to co-author a story with another writer, simply let us know. Remember that the total word count must still fit within our 1,000-3,000 word limit.
If your story isn't accepted by our editorial board, we will provide you with feedback and suggestions on how to revise it for reconsideration. We aim to ensure that all authors have the opportunity to share their unique and inspiring stories.
We undertake a robust, world-class marketing and PR campaign. This includes social media marketing, press releases to national publications, and email marketing, among others. On the launch day, we also offer a 24-hour free Kindle version download to boost visibility and rankings on Amazon.
For each publication cycle, we typically accept one story per author to ensure a variety of voices and perspectives. However, we encourage authors to consider submitting a new story for our future multi-author book projects.
Right now, we're focused on letting your words paint the picture. This ensures a smooth and streamlined publishing journey for all our authors.
We are here to support you every step of the way. Apart from our in-house editing and coaching services, we also provide guidelines for writing and formatting your story and author bio. Our team is always available to answer your questions via email.
We provide all authors with a general theme or guidelines for each multi-author book project. This ensures that all stories harmonize with one another, creating a cohesive and powerful reading experience. If you need further clarity on the theme, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
