I’ve been in contact with WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing, the oldest and one of the largest Christian publishers in the country. They want to work with me. Unfortunately, because I am a new author, I must make an investment. Such is the world of publishing any more. It’s not the same as self-publishing. Self-publishing is when, as long as the author pays, the publisher will print ANYTHING. That is because the primary customer is the author, not book stores and suppliers.
WestBow Press are selective about who and what they publish. They need to believe in the message and the author’s ability to deliver the message, and of course, sell books. Thomas Nelson watches over WestBow authors and books, for content and success. They may pick up an author and book from WestBow, offering a traditional publishing package.
The representative I spoke with yesterday suggested I investigate kickstarter.com. He said he has several new authors who, like me did not the funds to invest, and they used this website to get thousands of dollars. So, I am going to do that. Pray for me, and if you are able, when my project is posted, help me out. I’ll post here with the link when my project is up.
