Two years ago today, Redemption Press officially launched. God’s call to establish a new model that truly empowers the author to accomplish all God has intended became reality and over a quarter of a century of experience was poured into every aspect of this mission-minded business.
Over this last two years we’ve helped 413 authors with 469 different titles, all in some way or another intended to glorify God and build the Kingdom. We’ve made a point to provide personalized and attentive author care, always striving to under promise and over deliver, avoiding the hype and gimmicks that are so prevalent in our industry. We’ve determined to help Christian authors self-publish professionally and effectively, while offering the support, advice and coaching of a traditional publisher.
Our heart is to continually develop and offer effective strategies to help our authors reach their audiences, all the while helping our authors keep realistic expectations and not promoting gimmicks that “sound good” but lack integrity. If we don’t feel like your money is well spent on a particular method of promotion or marketing, then we won’t offer it or recommend it. Simply put, our commitment is in doing what’s best for the author.
We’ve had plenty of ups and downs during these first two years, but God has seen fit to keep us ever improving and growing. For Redemption Press to complete both our first and second year in business in the black (not by much, but enough to keep us going!) with no angel investors, lines of credit, or deep pockets to fall back on and put our trust in, is a testament to His faithfulness.
Today we celebrate a journey of faith and trust and redemption. Gratitude fills my heart for all our authors who’ve put their trust in me and in our Redemption Press team. It has been an honor to serve you all and we count it a privilege to be part of your journey to share the message He has given you.
We look forward to many more years of accomplishing all He has planned for us, and continue to trust Him to send us the authors He wants us to work with.
