Introducing Linden Books
I wanted to introduce you to a new publishing imprint called Linden Books, and the best way to do so, I think, is to simply reproduce here what is taking shape on their webpage, which is being hosted by Clarendon House Publications. The page is a work in progress, as you will see, but there's sufficient information there to serve as a first glimpse. Astute readers will perhaps notice that Linden Books has for some time now been advertising their forthcoming book The Adventures of Robin Hood in the Inner Circle Writers' Magazine.
Anyway, here is what they have to say so far:
FICTION THAT INSPIRES THE HEART
NON-FICTION THAT SOOTHES THE SOUL
OUR MISSION & VALUES
We inspire hearts by meeting the needs of readers with content that promotes spiritual principles and honours a creator God.
We believe that fiction is a form of communication which offers a unified vision.
We believe that readers have a virtually unlimited desire for the messages we can deliver.
We believe that publishing is a relationship of equals.
We believe that your work and your voice are your own and that our role is to act as a chorus, harmonising with and strengthening what you have to say to make your fiction the best it can be for readers.
Our job is to be invisible.
We expect a high quality of finished manuscripts.
We expect authors to approach the process of communicating with readers with vigour and determination.
Our editors are skilled collaborators, eager to help; our marketers constantly adapt to a changing marketplace and seek out targeted, effective ways to connect readers with your work.
We work with authors who are Christians or who are aligned with a Christian world view. Explicit faith content is not a prerequisite, but a positive spiritual theme is essential.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We are looking for writers who are passionate about their work and message, who are willing to work hard to engage with readers, who have a unique voice and a great attitude.
WHAT WE PUBLISH
We publish material which strives to
promote spiritual principles
honour a creator God
reach a high technical quality
communicate with readers with vigour and determination
convey positive spiritual themes
transmit a unique voice
If any of this is of any interest to you, please bookmark the webpage which you can see here.
I'm sure more will be forthcoming in the near future, but if you have any questions, you can contact them through me:
