A Leap of Faith or a Surety? Self-Publishing Supports Writers of Faith

April is a month packed full of faith-centered celebrations––with Passover on the 11th, Easter on the 16th, and Lailat al Miraj on the 23rd––and the deep, poignant reflections which so often and naturally accompany them. Traditionally, April is a month of profound religious insight with an emphasis on peace, generosity, and pilgrimages both physical and spiritual.

What better way to honor the tenor of the month than to publish a book borne out of your faith? Practically speaking, there’s no better time of year to do so, and at Outskirts Press we offer a variety of a la carte services in addition to our stellar One-Click Publishing packages for Spiritual and Christian literature, packages tailored to meet your needs as an author of faith seeking to reach readers of similar interests. Whether you’re putting together a work of fiction, non-fiction, or something which defies the conventions of genre, we have something made to order.

Readers are hungry for religious and faith-based literature! Several years ago, Publishers Weekly released some research on the world of Christian books, highlighting the massive success which this particular category of books has had as a result of self-publishing. Says PW’s Andy Butcher, “Christian self-publishing has moved from the Rodney Dangerfield era to the Aretha Franklin age. Once they couldn’t get no respect, but now self-publishers in the category are singing Aretha’s chorus and asserting themselves as an important and viable option for faith-based authors.” And the numbers only continue to climb!

So what’s driving those sales? An ever-broadening range of self-publishing services populated with smart marketing strategies and expert insight from professionals is one driving factor; so too is self-publishing’s movement beyond stigma to respectability, a respectability it has earned in part because the covers get better and more beautiful each year, the content more refined and polished, and the variety of religious books available more diverse. The better the self-publishing services provided, the more authors are able to translate their dreams for publishing into reality.

And we at Outskirts Press are so proud to offer exactly that––quality self-publishing options designed to place your vision for your book at the heart of what we do, to produce the best possible book of which you can be proud––and with which you can inspire your readers with the faith and insight you have found in life. We hope you’ll consider publishing with us, and if you have any questions you can find out more on our website (www.OutskirtsPress.com) or contact us by phone (1-888-672-6657)—or even live chat with us online! Our Publishing Consultants are on hand and eager to set you up for success as you take a leap of faith into self-publishing!
