Teena Myers discovered her talent for writing while developing children’s church and Sunday school curricula. Time and again, friends and members of her church told her she should try to get her writing published. When she took their advice, she discovered Christian publishing was, paradoxically, dominated by a secular, profit-driven philosophy.
Publishing’s New Frontier is Myers’ inspirational recounting of her search for a publishing house more interested in faith and content than cash and business success.
Along the way, Myers receives some unconventional training in a secular writers’ group that includes Christians, agnostics, atheists, and a witch. She discovers a Christian writers’ guild with a focus on encouraging writers, as well as how fast she can create a manuscript when a publisher expresses interest in her ideas. She is met with generosity and skeptics, finds success with a publisher other writers maligned, and learns what to do when a priest forgets to pay for your book.
Lighthearted, often poignant, and always sincere, Publishing’s New Frontier reminds Christian writers their true purpose in writing is to honor God.
