Any Christian Writers Here?

Postby G.E.Plum » Tue Aug 02, 2016 1:15 am

I'm shell-shocked from the things I've learned today about Christian publishers and literary agents.

Anyone else in the same boat?

I'll be glad to post more if anyone responds. :)

what shocks you? That they're in it for the money?

Yeah, letting us in on what shocked you would be helpful. As to money and exploitation - well, that's what any successful business does (provides what people want). Definitely not restricted to any particular religion. :roll:

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

Although my writing is varied, I seem to be the only one who continually contributes to the spiritual writing section. That said, I have been published six times in various religious magazines. Some have paid for my article and some have not. It's not always being paid that matters, it is also the exposure of your name and the type of article you write that really counts. I presently have self published a book of meditations, which I am mostly giving away to those whom I feel could use the strength of prayer to help them through some trying times. I hope this helps you.

A friend of mine wrote a Christian SF novel once. It was reasonably good, however he was unable to get it placed, and ended up going for self pub. That said, I don't really know much about the market other than having read the Left Behind series and a few inspirationals, so I can't offer much advice here other than what I said in the other thread.
