Writers wanted: Kirkdale Press seeking star-bound Christian authors
Rising digital publisher now accepting Christian fiction, non-fiction submissions
BELLINGHAM, Wash., May 22, 2012 — Coming off its recent launch, Kirkdale Press is looking to bolster its all-star lineup by sounding a call for the next best-selling Christian fiction and non-fiction authors. Established and up-and-coming authors alike can submit queries for completed manuscripts, which Kirkdale Press is now accepting and reviewing for ebook publication. Kirkdale builds on Logos Bible Software’s 20 years of experience as the world’s leading publisher of electronic Christian resources and Bible study tools.
“I had no idea how to market my work … but Kirkdale does,” said Naomi Dathan, author of Whither Thou Goest, I Will Go, published by Kirkdale Press. “Now my book is being read all over the place, and I love it.”
Kirkdale Press prides itself on setting the industry standard for strong publisher-author relationships.
“We truly care about our authors,” said Kirkdale Press Manager Ryan Rotz. “And it shows as we guide them through the publishing process and give them the marketing skills necessary to build a following in the digital world.”
Published Kirkdale authors — from National Day of Prayer Task Force Vice Chair John Bornschein, who penned The Front Line, to fiction writer Lucie Ulrich — note walking away with a customized, one-of-a-kind experience.
“From acquisition, to editing, to publicity, every person I worked with was wonderful,” said Ulrich, author of Broken Vessels, a recently published title by Kirkdale Press. “As a new author, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but all of my questions and concerns were addressed, and I was given a great deal of encouragement.”
Kirkdale offers unique state-of-the-art features, such as tagged Bible references that allow users to click them and instantly read Scripture passages within their ebooks. When read via the dynamic Vyrso ereader app, Kirkdale titles can be integrated with the powerful and expansive Bible study tools and resources of Logos 4, which gives readers the ability to search through thousands of ebooks in seconds. Kirkdale books are also available through Kindle, Nook and other ereaders.
