An online devotional for writers
Get a scroll and write down all my messages. (Jeremiah 36:2, NLT)
In Bible times, the “how to publish” question did not involve finding an agent or choosing a publisher.
If you were literate and had something important to say, you could write it down and share it. Your publishing platform? Scrolls made of leather or papyrus and distributed from one person to another.
Fast forward a few thousand years. The “how to publish” question, until recently, had just one answer: to get a book into readers’ hands, you needed a book contract
That’s no longer the case. As an indie writer, you share a commonality with writers in Bible times: you can share your book with readers without winning a publishing contract. Thanks to self-publishing, you have alternatives.
If you want to write a book, you’ve got more publishing options than ever before. Your publishing platform isn’t limited to water-streaked papyrus, thick leather, or even the competition for attention from a publishing house.
So when it comes to publishing your book, your only remaining question is this: which platform will you choose?
Book authors have more publishing options than ever before.
You’ve allowed me to live during an era with plenty of publishing options. Help me not give into fear. Embolden me to choose a publishing platform and finish the publication process.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
