About halfway in between the two is subsidy publishing. They used to be called "vanity presses," fee-based publishers for a writer who just wants to put the book out. Such isn't always the case for Write Integrity's subsidy imprint, Faith Driven Fiction. Because our schedule is terribly limited, we will still screen the projects and choose those which best fit our standards - clean, wholesome, uplifting. And in keeping with our excellence in writing, we'll share with authors when we don't believe their books are ready for publication. That kind of honest feedback is so difficult to deliver and to receive, but the author can use the critique to grow and learn more about the craft of writing, making the project stronger through the process.
The benefits of a subsidy press to an author include the control over the project, full royalties, and the ability to make changes to the project or the business of the project on their own. This is invaluable for many authors as they have a specific vision for their books, but don't have the time, the technology, or the desire to learn the technology to make their vision come to fruition. Faith Driven Fiction gives authors the chance to see their project as they hoped, or even better, and enjoy the royalties of their work.
Our first author, Lill Kohler has done a brilliant job with her control over her project, WRONG WAY OUT. This is a stirring story of survival during the chaos of an apocalypse. Perfect strangers must rely on each other to find a way to thrive amid the destruction.
