Writer of the mega-bestselling "Left Behind" series (Tyndale) and owner of the Christian Writers Guild, author Jerry Jenkins is on record as being against self-publishing; however, he's recently had a change of heart.
When Jerry B. Jenkins wrote his first book, the publisher accepted it, even though Jenkins wasn't well known. Now 180 books later, the bestselling author has seen radical changes in traditional publishing.
"In my day, publishers took chances on beginners," he says. "Nowadays, many reject good writers without platforms."
Now, in an effort to help aspiring writers achieve their publishing dreams, Jenkins is launching Christian Writers Guild Publishing (CWGP).
He says it will be different from other custom publishing houses in that it features Published, a six-month course mentored by an experienced author.
According to a media release, when students with works-in-progress complete the course, CWGP will publish their books -- providing a copy editor, proofreader, cover and type designer, eBook formatter, printer, and a free package of promotion, marketing, and social media materials, everything the writer needs for a successful book launch.
