He got up and sat on the edge of the bedstead with his back to the window. “It’s better not to sleep at all,” he decided. There was a cold damp draught from the window, however; without getting up he drew the blanket over him and wrapped himself in it. He was not thinking of anything and did not want to think. But one image rose after another, incoherent scraps of thought without beginning or end passed through his mind. He sank into drowsiness. Perhaps the cold, or the dampness, or the dark, or the wind that howled under the window and tossed the trees roused a sort of persistent craving for the fantastic. He kept dwelling on images of flowers, he fancied a charming flower garden, a bright, warm, almost hot day, a holiday—Trinity day. A fine, sumptuous country cottage in the English taste overgrown with fragrant flowers, with flower beds going round the house; the porch, wreathed in climbers, was surrounded with beds of roses. A light, cool staircase, carpeted with rich rugs, was decorated with rare plants in china pots. He noticed particularly in the windows nosegays of tender, white, heavily fragrant narcissus bending over their bright, green, thick long stalks. He was reluctant to move away from them, but he went up the stairs and came into a large, high drawing-room and again everywhere—at the windows, the doors on to the balcony, and on the balcony itself—were flowers. The floors were strewn with freshly-cut fragrant hay, the windows were open, a fresh, cool, light air came into the room. The birds were chirruping under the window, and in the middle of the room, on a table covered with a white satin shroud, stood a coffin. The coffin was covered with white silk and edged with a thick white frill; wreaths of flowers surrounded it on all sides. Among the flowers lay a girl in a white muslin dress, with her arms crossed and pressed on her bosom, as though carved out of marble. But her loose fair hair was wet; there was a wreath of roses on her head. The stern and already rigid profile of her face looked as though chiselled of marble too, and the smile on her pale lips was full of an immense unchildish misery and sorrowful appeal. Svidrigaïlov knew that girl; there was no holy image, no burning candle beside the coffin; no sound of prayers: the girl had drowned herself. She was only fourteen, but her heart was broken. And she had destroyed herself, crushed by an insult that had appalled and amazed that childish soul, had smirched that angel purity with unmerited disgrace and torn from her a last scream of despair, unheeded and brutally disregarded, on a dark night in the cold and wet while the wind howled

10 Best Catholic Publishers

‹ Back to blog

If you’re looking to submit a manuscript to Catholic publishing companies, or if you’re looking for good reading to bolster your faith, this is the right page. Below are the ten best Catholic book publishers for your manuscript (with bonus ones added at the end!).

Below I explain what each publisher accepts, and their submission policies. A few are open to fiction, others prefer more popular titles, and there are many that publish theology, biography, and spirituality.

The biggest turnoff for me when it comes to a publisher is a terrible website. I went through hundreds of Catholic Publishers to find the ones below, and far too many looked like the website was built by a writer rather than a professional programmer.

I hope you find the right Catholic publisher for your book.

1. Ignatius

ignatius-press-logo-2Ignatius is one of the premier book publishers of Catholic fiction. They’re based out of San Francisco and were founded in 1978. Read the press’s history here.

They seem to specialize in historical fiction, and especially like series (but publishers always like series — they’re money-makers).

They’re published recent Popes, including Pope John Paul II and newish works by Cardinal Ratzinger.

You can submit to them directly, which is a rarity among publishers nowadays. They receive 400 titles every year and select 20, so about 5% of what they receive, which is probably a high percentage considering how many manuscripts publishers receive. They promise to review manuscripts within 3 months.

Sample Titles:

  • The Appalling Strangeness of the Mercy of God: The Story of Ruth Pakaluk, Convert, Mother and Pro-Life Activist.” The story of a prolific warrior in the pro-life movement, and how she fought her way to becoming a ferocious debater.

2. Sophia Institute Press

UnknownSophia Institute publishes apologetics, children’s books, devotionals, and fiction. They don’t have a ton of fiction, mostly specializing in nonfiction.

They have dozens of great titles under marriage and family life.

Sample Titles:

  • A Holy Year in Rome: A Pilgrim’s Guide for the Year of Mercy.” It’s a great guide to taking a pilgrimage to Rome, whether in the Year of Mercy or any other time.
  • Crossbows and Crucifixes: A Novel of the Priest Hunters and the Brave Young Men Who Fought Them.” A historical novel detailing the adventures of an underground resistance army against anti-Catholic forces.

 3. Loyola Press

LP100Loyola Press publishes classic fiction, but even though they have a category for “Contemporary Fiction,” it doesn’t appear they have published any of it. Perhaps it is a desire to publish new fiction authors in the future? (They note in their submissions guidelines that they are not, in fact, looking for fiction, poetry, or children’s books).

So this is a good press for theology and apologetics. If you couldn’t tell from the name, this is a Jesuit publisher, which typically means it’s more intellectual. They specialize in daily devotionals and biographies of the saints.

They publish about 20 new books a year, and promise to get back to you about your manuscript within 2 weeks.

Sample Titles:

  • Random MOMents of Grace: Experiencing God in the Adventures of Motherhood.” The author talks about finding beauty and grace in the everyone moments of dealing with children and family.

A Jesuit Off Broadway.” The author spends 6 months as the theological advisor to the cast of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.

4. Ascension Press

602787_10151426270510832_278565954_nThey are looking for “popular” books, books which will have the widest appeal in the Catholic community. I would describe their aesthetic as “general interest faith-formation.”

They also publish nonfiction exclusively.

Although they don’t give any numbers, they say that they accept “only a small percentage of the unsolicited manuscripts we receive.”

Overall, they are much smaller than the powerhouse Ignatius, but they are still very good quality.

Sample Titles:

  • Disorientation: How to Go to College Without Losing Your Mind.” Basically, how Catholic college students can keep their faith at the University.
  • Interview with an Exorcist.” The author has performed hundreds of exorcists, and relays how to detect demon possession and how to perform it correctly.

5. Emmaus Road Publishing

Emmaus-Road-Publishing-286x300Emmaus Road is publishing some of the most interesting titles around. I could basically fill this entire section with great books they’ve recently released. Overall, Emmaus is probably underrated as a publisher, and I look forward to great things by them.

They publish all nonfiction, but cover both the academic and the more popular titles.

Sample Titles:

  • “Navigating the Interior Life: Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God.”  What is spiritual direction and how can you figure out your spiritual direction?
  • “Sex Au Natural.” The Catholic teaching on sex — narrated not in a scolding manner but with flair and pizzazz.
  • “Infinite Bandwidth: Encountering Christ in the Media.” Seven principles drawn from Catholic teaching on how to best approach our media landscape.
  • “These Beautiful Bones: An Everyday Theology of the Body.” How do you think about your body? Do you think about it in a Christian way? Or has your view of the body been shaped by popular culture?

6. Sapientia Press

UnknownSapientia Press is one of the series under CUA: The Catholic University of American Press, so if you see CUA at the top of the page, be aware I didn’t point you in the wrong direction.

This press prefers more academic books, and less devotional or popular titles.

Sample Titles:

  •  The Church and the Usurers. Examines our culture of money lending, and questions whether capitalism would fall under the sin of Usury.
  • Shakespeare the Papist. Was Shakespeare a believing Catholic? This book examines the plays to look for evidence of belief.

7. Paraclete Press

Paraclete is rooted in the Benedictine community, but they publish perspectives from the three major branches of Christianity — Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox. 

Check out their submission requirements, and make sure not to send the genres they explicitly do not accept.

They promise to respond to submissions within a month, which is nice indeed. 

Sample Titles:

  • Reclaiming Life: Faith, Hope, and Suicide Loss
  • Flunking Sainthood Every Day
  • Paul and His Friends (Children’s Book)

8. Liturgical Press

Liturgical Press is a very broad publisher, offering a very wide array of subjects — Parish life, academic titles, monastic traditions, Christian living, and Prayer and Spirituality.

If you have a book that doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else, it would be a good idea to start researching here.

Check out their guidelines for submissions and you can send by email or snail mail.

Sample Titles:

  • Faces of Easter: Meeting the Paschal Mystery in the People Around Us
  • Paul Farmer: Servant to the Poor (Biography)
  • Not by Bread Alone: Daily Reflections for Lent

9. Wiseblood Books

As of writing this, Wiseblood books is closed to submissions, but I think they’re a publisher to keep your eye on.

Hopefully they open up soon, because they’re wonderful if you want to publish any literary work, especially fiction. On the website they say they focus on short story collections, novels, novellas, literary nonfiction, poetry, and essays. 

I love the mashup of David Foster Wallace, Endo, and Musil on the submissions page as well — that gives you a taste of what kind of work they’re looking for.

Sample Titles:

  • The Oracles Fell Silent (novel)
  • Cave Art (Poems)
  • Poetry as Enchantment by Dana Gioia (essays)

10. Pauline Books and Media

This is a bad publisher if you’re looking for a home for your fiction, poetry, or academic text, but a great one if you’re trying to publish a Catholic book about … well, anything else.

It’s run by The Daughters of St. Paul and have a series of 14 media centers internationally. They also have a very strong section of titles for children and teens (so if you have a children’s book, MG, or YA Catholic manuscript, this would be an excellent place to send it.

And yes, they accept email submissions.

Sample Titles:

  • The Kids Book of Prayers About All Sorts of Things
  • Saints Alive! 30 Stories of Dramatic Moments of Grace

 

Did none of those publishers seem to be a good fit?

      1. I would remove Tumblar House, as their website now states that they are no longer receiving manuscripts. 🙁

    1. I’m not sure about that. I’ll have to look into poetry publishers when I update this post or when I write another one.

    1. Looks like Pauline is a great resource for writers looking to publish Catholic books for children and teens. Thanks for pointing it out.

    1. That is a very specific niche. I don’t know any of them soliciting graphic novels, but graphic novels are such a desirable commodity I would approach your top choice for fiction publishers and see if they would be interested (by sending a very personal email). If they are expanding their offerings, they would be smart to snatch it up.

    2. GO TO http://www.pauline.org
      These are Catholic Sisters, Daughters of St Paul and they have published Saint books in the format of graphic novels.
      They are well known for their Children’s book line. Not sure why they are not on this list…maybe it should expand to 10 top Catholic Publishers. The Paulines have been publishing in the US for over 80 years and their Papal Approved Congregation is over 100 years old, founded by Blessed James Alberione. They are a world wide congregation of Pauline Sisters who spread the Gospel Message through the media.

    3. Check out Chrism Press, a new imprint at WhiteFire publishing. They might be interested in graphic novels.

    1. Those are both a great resource, but they seem to specialize in educational resources, and the publishers listed in the post were more focused on fiction.

    1. Hi Patti,

      Yes, that’s what I said. They have a category for contemporary fiction but haven’t published any of it. They only publish classic fiction.

      1. Good day. This is a very helpful resource, thanks. Could you check and update the links in the post as some of them are now dead. Also, with regard to Patti’s point above, Loyola Press now says that they do *not* publish apologetics; your post still says that they do.

  1. I am a Catholic writer from India. Jesus helped me to write 5 (English) books. With Lords grace we were able to sell more than 40,000 Copies in 3 states of India.My books- 1) Learn The Alphabets With Jesus. 2) A Child In Search Of Jesus. 3) A Child In Search Of God. 4) A Child In Search Of The Holy Spirit. (All are children picture books) And Forgive & Love. Looking for a publisher in USA. Please advice. God Loves You.

  2. I am having difficulty finding a publisher for a collection of Christian short stories (3 at about 6000 words long each) and poetry (45 poems). Does such a thing exist? Thanks!

    1. Hi Christopher,

      It would be tough to find a publisher that will publish a mixed-genre book like that. If it was all poetry or all short stories you’d have an easy time.

      Let me know if you’d like an editors eye on it.

  3. Do any of the Catholic Publishing Co. publish memoirs: especially when the person was protestant and turned Catholic.

    1. I’m sure this would be a good hook for a book, and I’m sure Catholic publishers have done something like this before, but I’m not sure of any specific titles or any specific publishers. Good luck with research!

    2. HI Tommy,
      Just read your question. You may want to watch The Journey HOme, from EWTN.COM with Marcus Grodi. You can go on line or on YouTube . There are many stories of conversions and EWTNRC.COm has books for sale. I don’t work for them. I am an advocate! They may have a publishing arm? I haven’t checked yet. Best wishes, VB

  4. I am looking to publish a text on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Catholic tradition . . . any recommendatiosn for a publisher?

  5. Thanks for the list! Is it considered rude to submit a manuscript to multiple publishers at once?

    1. No. That is normal. Even if you submit to 10 at a time, it could be six months before you hear back (if you hear back at all). So it’s best to send out in the waves and see what feedback you’re getting.

  6. Any advice on how to submit a previously self-published book (Beavers Pond Press, MN) for publication? I have sold over 25000 copies of my First Communion Book but need to concentrate more on the retreats and school visits – actively promoting a more involved Catholic Community and growing the Church from the youth on up – making them see the importance of getting to ‘know Jesus in the Eucharist’. Any advice? I can change verbiage to make it a ‘first’ book if need be.

  7. Thanks for the list. As others have mentioned, what about Ave Maria, Liturgical Press, plus I’ll add Twenty-Third Publications?

  8. Hi. I wrote a manuscript comparing the writings of St. John of the Cross to St. John Paul II Theology of the Body. The mystical love between God and the soul (St. John) to the biblical love between man and woman (St. John Paul). Most people say it is pretty deep. My pastor said it could be used in formation and called it high Christology. What would be the best publisher for that. Ignatius and Pauline both refused to publish it.

    1. Hi David, did you ever find a publisher for your manuscript? I’m looking for one for a work of mine that is similar to yours. I took St. John of the Cross’ theology of the soul with it’s various parts (spiritual faculties, theological virtues) and applied that to a spiritual interpretation of the creation account in Genesis. I have no idea where to begin to submit. Thank you in advance.

  9. May i have a list of other Catholic publishers who i can approach for apologetics manuscripts who are not on that list.

  10. Do you think any Catholic publishers would be interested in a grown up version of a Nancy Drew mystery about a young Irish American detective girl who leads a very Catholic life throughout many of her adventures?

    1. It sounds like a great pitch! If you’ve written the book already, send it some of the ones of this list. And if you need an editor, contact me.

  11. Any direction for a first time writer for a memoir non fiction seeking a publisher for a story on a 911 ecumenical Bereavement Support Group Of 76 Families 104 Children from the eyes of the Pastoral Counselor in a Catholic Church who coordinated it. It ran for two years.

    1. Improve your pitch — I saw a lot of numbers but I don’t have a sense of your story. And then look for publishers who have published religious memoirs before, and tell them how your memoir is different but also the same type.

  12. Hi! My daughter Vanessa writes short stories of religious content about past events or contemporary issues. She is a good writer with an excellent education (she received a Degree in English Literature at University College London) but she is shy and she needs somebody who encourages her to publish her work. She has written already tens of short stories which are exciting and inspirational to read. Could I send you samples of her work for possible publication? Many thanks, Giuliano Mennella.

    1. It depends on whether it’s nonfiction or fiction, but I would recommend searching for each publisher name along with the word “exorcism” to see if any of the above publishers have done a book on that topic. If they have, hit them up with a pitch for how your book is different.

  13. Bookfox, I have almost 40,000 words of fictional Anglican characters darting in and out of the temple and doing good works. (Most of the Catholics are only in the prologue, one epilogue and the first chapter.) But I’m Catholic, and I had hoped to find a Catholic house that is willing to fund the completion of a partial manuscript. Is there any such animal?

    1. Hi, As far as I know, no publisher funds partially written fiction books. If you had a nonfiction proposal, they’d give you an advance to write it, but not for fiction. Sorry.

      1. Dear me, Bookfox. Thanks for getting back to me so soon. I hope I have a bona fide calling to write this, and that the Lord will help me through this morass of historical research. God bless.

  14. I am looking for the publishing company that produced books I bought back in the 60’s. Our church use to put them out to buy, they were like $.50 back then. They were little short stories in the bible. I loved them and would like to find them again if they are available. If anyone knows of a company that sells something like this I would appreciate it. I know they wouldn’t be $.50 anymore lol, but would love to get them for some kids at our Catholic Church

  15. I am seeking UK-based Catholic literary agents, but not having much luck.
    Does anyone kindly have suggestions?
    Many thanks in advance from London, England.

    1. Hi Elsa, have you had any luck about UK agents? I live in Brighton and I too want to contact suitable agents for my book ‘The Man who Missed the Sixties’ when I was a Trappist monk. Perhaps we can help each other. You can reach me at pathannibal@gmail.com. Blessings… Patrick Hannibal

  16. I am writing a handbook with different problems we face and giving short tidbits of Christian advice with supporting scriptures. Do you think I can get a publisher (not vanity press) for this and if so, who should I contact when I am finished? Also, I printed what I have done so far and tested it with friends. When they opened the sample book, they opened a page with the problem they were facing and felt hope after reading the advice.

    1. Hi Anne, I’m not sure I know enough about the book to say whether you can get a publisher, but the fact that it’s connecting with your friends is an excellent sign.

      If you do need help editing or want feedback before you send it to publishers, I can help you.

  17. Hi BookFox, I’m writing a book that consists of traditional Catholic prayers/ piety with some instructions on how to grow in divine love, (with a substantial amount of quotes from private revelations from the Saints mostly and others with at least an Imprimatur). My book then is named “Pray And Love”. I’m thinking of submitting a manuscript to Tansbook Publishers, but I’m sceptical since it’s not given a thought here. Good you help edit books, you’ll be of great help to me, most of my work is already edited, just typographical errors and a little of my own work… Kind of 200 pages. Pls recommend Catholic publishing houses that print books in many languages, most of them seems to be tied up with only English and Spanish. Thanks

    1. Just do your research and make sure you’re not getting into a pay-to-play situation. There are many good publishers out there (and lots of scammy ones, too).

  18. Thank you for the information. Do you know any Catholic publisher in the US that would accept manuscripts written in French? Thank you beforehand!

  19. Thank you for all the excellent research, John. I submitted my nonfiction manuscript “The Bard’s Book of Wisdom: Tips for Teens on Living a Wiser, Happier Life” to Emmaus, Tumblar, and a few others you brought to my attention. Trying to sell the concept of Shakespeare as a Catholic thinker and writer. We’ll see how it goes! Thanks again.

  20. Would you please recommend a publisher for a fiction children’s book written by a teen?

  21. I’ve been working on a book that speaks against physician (medical) aide in suicide. The book is being written from a Catholic perspective through my experiences as a hospice (and critical care) RN for many decades. Do you have thoughts on the likelihood of a publisher being interested in this topic? Thank you for your useful site!

  22. I have a novena for children before they make their first communion in the Catholic Church. We have used it in our own family for four generations. I was wondering about having it published for all children to enjoy. Do you think there is a certain publisher I should be talking to about this particular kind of book.

    1. I would look for a Catholic publisher that publishes nonfiction for children. I don’t have any specific suggestions, but do your homework on this one.

  23. Tumblar House is not accepting mss. Do you know of another publisher interested in science fiction with a Catholic foundation?

  24. I have written a book about my son who had down syndrome and congenital heart disease. Vince lived until he was almost six. Before his death, our family experienced religious revelations that changed our lives for the better. I wrote his story to tell of a wonderful child; to educate parents of children about resources available to them and to educate the general public about children with disabilities. Can you advise me as to which publishers I should send my manuscript too?

  25. wrote a book about the trees and other flora found in the bible what they symbolize and lessons they can teach us and then prayer that correspond . Most of my resouces came from my catholic study bible and the Rodef Shalom biblical garden . Have any suggestion for possible publisher for how to care for creation.

  26. I just wrapped up a memoir about my son’s struggle with alcoholism, depression, and his ultimate suicide, so it’s a story of a mother who never gave up on her son, and my faith that helped me to survive the worst thing imaginable. Concurrently with his struggle, our family was under diabolical attack, so there is a compelling subplot. All documented and true. Is there a publisher you might direct me toward?

    1. I would see which of the publishers on this list seem like a good fit for memoir. None are popping to mind as an excellent fit for this book.

  27. I am considering writing a book on my struggles with depression and anxiety and their lifelong influence in dealing with issues of life like death of a brother from AIDS, loss of parents, leaving the church, male infertility, seeking treatments for anxiety and depression,returning to the faith, and healing. It would be a biography/self help book. Do you think it would be of any interest? And which Catholic publisher would you recommend?

    1. That certainly sounds of interest, but it’s tough to recommend a publisher based on this info. You’d want to look for publishers who specialize in memoir (that’s the proper term rather than biography).

  28. I’m grateful that this thread is still active. Thanks, Bookfox! You sound like a great editor & I have bookmarked this page. Meanwhile, do you have any input for writers who want to publish with a pen name and stay private & off social media, especially Facebook? I have a Catholic historical mystery novel, here, and a potential publisher is pushing me to do otherwise. 🙁

    1. Very difficult to publish anonymously and not to do marketing. The publisher needs you to do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to marketing the book. That’s just the reality of the publishing marketplace nowadays. Let me know if I can help you with editing in the future!

  29. Dear Bookfox,
    I am searching for possible Catholic publishing houses that might be interested in my manuscript for a novel involving teddy bear soldiers brought to life by God to save children’s souls from the dark forces of the Evil One, the Grim Reaper, and their vicious Shadow Demon creatures. This is a Catholic book that evokes imagination and a fantastic message of courage. I call it….TEDDY BEARS VERSUS DEMONS! Do you know of any body who might be interested? Thanks.

  30. I published a book of poems with comments with Westbow Press. Search
    “Why Do I Believe” by Lissette Trahan at westbowpress.com. I make very little with each book sold. Do you have any ideas for marketing?
    Thank you

  31. I am searching for a Catholic publisher that would be interested in publishing my Black and Native American Stations of the Cross. I have done the artwork and the meditations.

  32. I am a British citizen resident in the Czech Republic. My wife is from Prague. We moved here in 1991 to found organisations for promoting NFP (Couple to Couple League) in this country and Slovakia. Having passed on the leadership I have had time to write a short book (cca. 24,000 words) entitled: “The Contracepted Society – how contraception is destroying Western civilisation”. It describes the psychological mechanisms of contraception use leading to marriage breakdown and abortion, and how NFP leads to stable families. Could you recommend a UK publisher who might be willing to publish it? Thank you.

  33. I’ve been self-publishing this little book with much success. (over 5,000 sold in 2 months on my first attempt to get the word out there about them, and since then another 5,000 without really trying. All word of mouth.) I am ready to have someone else publish, as I am too busy to be a salesperson any longer. Check out the book here on my website, and let me know if you have any interest. Or if you know another publisher who might. Thanks!

  34. I’ve been a book reviewer in this space for about a decade and I’d recommend that you add Ave Maria Press (they have a line that does reprint classic fiction), Pauline Books & Media (which, though small, is producing some great work in the Catholic space), Our Sunday Visitor (though small, they are growing and has an interesting line-up), Tan and St. Benedict Press (which are affiliated). I realize you focus on fiction, but in the Catholic niche, you will have to go beyond the traditional publishers and look into small self-pub presses. Full Quiver has been doing more in the last few years.

    1. Hi Sarah, thanks for all those specific tips. I think I saw Ave Maria Press but didn’t include it because this list is for authors seeking to submit their fiction to publishers (and I believe they only reprint classic fiction).

      And I’m trying to avoid self-pub presses — only traditional publishers.

      But I appreciate all these suggestions and I’ll check into those other ones you suggested.

  35. Hi Bookfox and others. I have written a fiction for boys in particular aged 10-15. The novel is about a group of elite footballers (soccer) whose passion is private investigations. They travel to France to play a series of games but become involved in an issue when a sword surfaces that is alledged to be the sword of Joan of Arc. Evil men are also after it and the plot goes from there. It is a thriller with strong Catholic themes and I wonder if you could suggest the best publisher for this genre.

    1. Hi Denis,

      So I’m not sure I have an exact fit for you, but I would say that this is YA (Young adult) and you should look for a YA agent/publisher who appreciates catholic themes.

  36. I am a Catholic writer. I was able to write one memoir & four Christian children picture books. We were able to sell more than 50,000 copies in our Country. We are looking for a Catholic Children book publisher in USA

  37. I am trying to find who actually prints Catholic bibles? I know there are many out there but where/what publishing house do they come from?

  38. My debut novel is YA fiction dealing with pro-life/pro-choice issues. Sequel half done on euthanasia. Any advice for suitable publishers?

  39. I am in the beginning of writing my personal experiences that I had during my life with my spiritual angels. How they helped me in my daily life with my crisis. “Angels Are Always with Me”, is my title. Who would be interested in helping me take my next step?

  40. Hi, are there any publishers in the UK who would consider publishing poetry from an unknown poet? I can’t imagine publishers in the US are interested in poetry written in Scotland though could be wrong.

  41. Hi, First time writer and Catholic. Needing editing first and publication later. I have no idea where to start on editing. My story is about my walk with Christ and how He saved my life through Our Lady and some saints. I must share my story because I know lots of souls would benefit a great deal. Please, I need your input! Thanks!!!

  42. I am looking for a catholic publishers that deal with liturgical books, such as: mass readings, liturgical prayers, etc.

  43. As a former Evangelical Protestant missionary, I have written a book for Catholics to share with their Evangelical Protestant friends and family explaining Catholic thought, doctrine and with an emphasis on why I love being Catholic–using “Evangelical speak” language and my personal testimony. It could also serve as a useful tool in RCIA programs. What publisher do you think would be most interested in that niche? Thank you!
    P.S. Didn’t think I would KNOW any other comment writers. I have an amazing piece of Michael LaVoy’s artwork in my dining room. Hello, Michael!

  44. Hello! I am writing a manuscript tentatively entitled An Explanation of Fratelli Tutti: Ideologies and Victims. My goals are to: 1) explain the ideologies of populism, nationalism, authoritarianism, and global capitalism that are referenced but not defined by Pope Francis in his Encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, 2) to personalize the circumstances of the people who fall victim to these ideologies, and 3) to use the pope’s guidance in Fratelli Tutti to bring healing amidst one of the most difficult times in modern history.
    I provide an objective framework within which to understand the ideologies of Donald Trump and other populist leaders across the globe. This is the first step towards understanding the polarization endemic to populism, and therefore the first step towards healing the division it creates.
    Fratelli Tutti has a profound message, but I fear it is not well understood on its own. I use my professional background as a Ph.D. economist to explain the nature and implications of the ideologies referenced by the pope.
    And while the pope refers to many victims of these ideologies, he does not provide the detail necessary for readers to understand their circumstances. As a development economist with experience across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe, I know the conditions and policy frameworks necessary for people to thrive, as well as the ideologies and circumstances that worsen their plight. I tell the stories of the victims to illustrate the theoretical concepts referenced by the Pope—because unless readers come to know these victims, they will not be moved to care for them. SO – I am looking for a publisher. Any ideas?

  45. I have written a book, TRIO, that features an unrepentant killer on death row who discovers poetry and changes his life before his death. It includes stark descriptions of crime and prison and ultimately speaks out against capital punishment.
    Can yopu tell me if Catholic publishers might be interested in this topic/genre? Thanks

  46. Dear sir:

    My husband writes Catholic and Christian prayer poems. He has written about 35 thus far. Could you direct me to a publisher that is interested in publishing this type of poetry?

    Thank you,
