In 2016, Wings of Hope’s doors were opened to authors outside of the critique group, and WoH has had the privilege of launching three first-time authors: Dr. Ralph Vogel, who writes the Jimmy of Cottonwood Valley children’s series; Julane Hiebert, who writes popular humorous historical stories set in the Flinthills of Kansas; and Sara Meisinger, the author of the women’s fiction title Autumn’s Grace.
Wings of Hope is a non-profit publishing company dedicated to giving worthy new writers their start and offering wholesome reading from a Christian worldview. Authors are not asked to contribute financially to the costs of publishing. All expenses are covered by the company and recouped through book sales. After expenses have been met, 95% of revenue (5% retained for administrative costs) is funneled to the author.
Because Wings of Hope is a small, self-funded company, it does not have a dedicated marketing team in place. Therefore, its authors are expected to maintain a website (advice is available for establishing one, if needed) and otherwise participate in the marketing of their books.
If you’re looking for a publishing home that feels like family, please consider reviewing the guidelines on the Submissions page.
God bless your writing journey!
