The Spirit-Led Publishing and Writing Handbook, written by a Christian publisher, an international writer, and other industry professionals with decades of experience in the industry, is the go-to book for Christians who have a calling to write, helping them to not only glean wisdom and advice about writing but also to understand the ins and outs of publishing.
The Spirit-Led Publishing and Writing Handbook is 412 pages long and can be read cover to cover, or used as a topical reference handbook for different writing and publishing subjects. Bursting with information, this handbook has it all—tips on everything from writing that will keep readers engaged to preparing your manuscript for submission to a publisher, writing a book proposal, what you should have in place before you release your book, and understanding complex areas of publishing such as ghostwriting, children’s books, marketing, and distribution. You’ll find practical sections with checklists and suggestions for who to contact to get things done within the publishing industry, as well as handy references like an easy-to-understand glossary of industry terms, a writer’s topical Scripture guide, and a writer’s journal to keep track of details. All of these topics and more are covered by Christian professionals who will help you succeed in your call to write. Read this handbook before you go to another publisher!
