Publishing Selection

As a publishing partner for Christian authors, we understand that you have an important goal for your book. Choosing a publishing package that is best suited for your publishing needs is the first step towards that goal. We want to ensure that your book publishing experience is the best possible fit to your publishing dream. You will be in the company of published authors who adhere to the same values and standards as yourself. In fact, each title must meet the WestBow Press Editorial Standards that are established by HarperCollins Christian Publishing in collaboration with WestBow Press, in order to carry the WestBow Press brand.
