Book Publishing Company open to new Submissions.
Our mission is to create a family-centered clientele where our authors will grow their audience and be satisfied with the outcome of their product.
We prefer CLEAN stories to publish that represent Christian values. This means stories that do not intentionally set out to create a hostile profile of any religion, ethnic group, or gender. We publish real-world stories which include real-world problems pulled from the headlines of today as well as fantasy, horror, and other genres. If you have a manuscript that fits these criteria, please submit.
What do we mean by CLEAN? CLEAN to us means no explicit or pervasive profanity or sexual situations or language present in the words of MS. The MS of course may infer there has been intimate activity off-screen if the story calls for it.
We understand real-world situations may dictate material that is borderline to staying within our preferences but meets the majority of our criteria. Please submit and we will give your story consideration. If we do accept your manuscript on the basis of your submission but then discover material in the body of the MS is much more beyond our understanding of the initial submission, we reserve the right to null and void any contracts and agreements.
Christian & Sweet Romance
Send the first five chapters of your manuscript to [stainedglasspublishing @ gmail .com] along with a short cover letter. In the letter, be sure to include a full synopsis, and let us know if it is a simultaneous submission and whether or not the manuscript is complete.
Give us 3 business days to get back to you. If you have not heard from us by then, please send us another e-mail. We respond to ALL submissions.

Stained Glass Publishing offers other services in addition to publishing, such as Editing, Formatting, and Pimping (Marketing) assistance.

THE FREE SPACES HAVE BEEN FILLED!
Thank you to those that participated.
Authors, do you want to get in on the ground floor of a NEW BOOK ADVERTISING SITE about to launch?
LWI’s own Dr. Jason Royle contacted me with this proposal;
Email and offer removed due to spots filled.
There is also a “Author in the Spotlight” spots. To be featured simply email me an “author photo” and “title of book” on Amazon and they will be listed on the site, (with a link to their book) permanently.
The title of the site is eBook Christian, but you do not have to be Christian to submit a book. The only requirement is that your book does not contain vulgar language, graphic violence, or sexual/erotic content.
Children’s books, poetry, self-help, fiction, non-fiction, suspense, romance, etc. all genres welcome.

Why does Free not sell?
That’s a question I have seen a few times around the author blogs. Having recently, okay, not too recently signed up for BookBub.com I have been getting a lot of Free Ebooks. But then again I’ve passed on a lot as well—a whole lot. I subscribe to a broad range of genres, from kids to adults, from romance to even horror.
Why do I pass on getting a Free book?
- First thing is the cover just doesn’t work for me. Yep, the visual hits me first.
- But, I can move past that if the title works. But then the Title doesn’t work.
- Then the blurb doesn’t work.
- Then there is the pen name of the author. The name chosen doesn’t work because it’s an obvious cheese attempt to grab attention. It grabs attention but for the wrong reasons.
I think we all want to believe we can do it all ourselves and for free. Perhaps you are a great book cover artist, creative book blurb writer, and you already have a great name for an author. But for the rest of us I think we need to come to terms that if we want to stand out from the crowd and catch an eye we need to be willing to either put in the effort to really learn how to do everything professionally, which does mean some money and a lot of time, thus meaning a longer time to get that book out there, or we pay professionals to do things for us.
Really, it all depends on what our idea of success is.
- Do we want to be a million-seller?
- Do we want to sell enough to do okay living?
- Do we want to simply have people read and enjoy our work?
- Do we want the sense of accomplishment that we wrote a book?
If you want to test out what you’ve done, you could put a selection of book covers on your site, without author names and titles, and see which ones work. Use books already out there and mix yours in. That doesn’t mean to actually use their book cover as your own if people like it better. Then do book titles. Then go for book blurbs. Test out what people like. Look at Amazon and see what those top selling people, that aren’t perhaps big names, doing. Big names can almost put out a blank cover with their name on it and people will buy it knowing what to expect inside. Test, test, test.

This was a great gift I received. One reason it was great is because I asked for it. And that means I did not have to pay for it. I would have but writer’s love free things. I love this book. It’s a 5 Star Rating from me here and on Amazon. I intentionally read the book before starting my most recent novel and it has really helped a lot. In what ways?
- I am aware of some little things that show a professional from an amateur
- I can make at least some things right so during my next draft I don’t have to struggle through those parts
- My beta-readers, proofreaders, editors or even possible co-authors don’t have to find a way to tell me that my writing stinks, well at least no more than usual
- It has a check list at the end of each chapter to help you learn and create a habit of what to look for and remember to do each time you read
It doesn’t matter if you are a 20 novel veteran or a first time novelist, this book is worth the money. It tells you everything in plain English and common sense language from ‘Show Don’t Tell’ to ‘Voice’. Some of my favorite chapters are ‘Proportions’ and ‘Once is Usually Enough’. Get this book It has great reviews and plenty of them. And a lot of reviews is always a good thing to see. So get it at Amazon for Kindle or Paperback by clicking here.
