Christian Book Publishing

how to publish a christian book

Are you the author of a Christian book?

Do you seek to inspire, uplift, and reconnect readers with Jesus Christ and God?

If so, we may be interested in publishing your work and sharing God’s message.

We are a full-service independent book publishing company with readers all over the world. We can publish your book in eBook, paperback, and audiobook format.

TCK Publishing Services for Christian Book Authors

TCK Publishing is a no-fee, independent book publishing company. That means we never charge any fees whatsoever, and we earn all our profits from selling your books to readers. We love publishing great Christian books and sharing the word of God with readers all over the world.

We can publish your work in eBook, paperback, and audiobook formats, and we distribute our books to readers all over the world.

Why We’re Different

Many Christian book publishers are actually vanity publishing service providers. Instead of earning their profits from selling books, they earn their profits by selling their expensive services to authors. They make big promises about what they’ll do for you, but they often don’t follow through. That leaves you with a large bill to pay with little or no book sales to show for it.

If you want your book to be professionally published and reach a large audience of interested readers so you can make a difference with your work, you need to work with a traditional Christian book publisher like us that focuses on distributing and marketing books in the US and internationally.

Submission Guidelines for Christian Books

We are currently accepting submissions for Christian books. The minimum word count for submission is 10,000 words.

We publish Christian books in the following subgenres:

  • Christian Scripture
  • Christian devotional literature
  • Christian nonfiction
  • Christian allegory
  • Christian fiction
  • Inspirational Christian books
  • Books with strong Christian themes or values

Note: Unfortunately, we are not able to publish Christian poetry or works of Christian theatre at this time. If you have written a work in one of those genres, we recommend you find a publisher who specializes in those markets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept unsolicited Christian manuscripts?

Yes, we are accepting unsolicited manuscripts in all major genres and nonfiction markets, including Christian fiction and nonfiction.

See our submission guidelines here for more information.

Where will you publish my Christian book?

Your Christian book will be published on Amazon Kindle in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, Brazil, France, Japan, India, and many other countries.

Your book will be available in print in North America, Europe, South America, and possibly other countries if demand exists.

Audiobooks will be published in the U.S. on Audible.com and will be available to customers internationally from Audible and iTunes, the two largest digital audiobook retailers in the world.

How much will I get paid for publishing my Christian book with TCK Publishing?

We pay our authors 50% of net royalties on book sales and 50% of all payments received for subsidiary rights and licensing deals.

For example, if we earn $8,000 in royalties for your book, you will receive 50% of that amount, or $4,000.

If we earn $5,000 for a five-year deal to license German language rights for your book, you earn 50% of that, or $2,500.

For every dollar your book brings in, you get half (which is 3–5x more than what you would earn with a traditional publisher).

As it is written in Hebrews 13:5, “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'”

What services do you provide?

We are a full-service independent publisher. That means we are able to provide every service you need, from ghostwriting to developmental editing to publishing, marketing, promotion and more.

Will my book be available in international markets?

Absolutely. Your book will be available all over the world in the U.S., U.K., Canada, France, Australia, Germany, Japan, and many other countries through Amazon and other distribution channels.

We also actively market our titles to international publishers year-round, as well as at the Frankfurt Book Fair and London Book Fair.

How can I publish my Christian book for free?

If we decide to move forward with your manuscript, we will publish your Christian book for free. TCK Publishing does not charge its clients any fees to publish their books, and we split all royalties 50/50.

However, if we do not decide to move forward with your manuscript, you can still try other publishing houses or self-publish your book. This is technically free to do, but be aware that you may end up spending on editing services, book cover designs, and other services that will help your book succeed.

How do I submit my manuscript?

To submit your manuscript for publishing consideration, just email us your typed manuscript in any digital format. We prefer Microsoft Word files in .doc or .docx format, but we can accept PDFs, .epub, .mobi, and a variety of different file types.

If your manuscript is in a different file format, contact us and we can find a way to work with it or convert it to a workable file format.

Please note that if your manuscript was typed on a typewriter or handwritten, we will definitely want to get it typed into a word processor on a computer so that we can edit and publish it.
