SCWC Books

Books on Writing
Books on Christian Living

NEEDS

SCWC Books publishes books on two primary topics: the craft of writing and inspirational/religious/Christian issues.

Books on writing can be either instructional (how-to) or inspirational, and can cover any genre of writing. The books should provide a unique perspective that will teach and encourage writers.


Inspirational books should be nonfiction and cover an aspect of modern Christian living. SCWC Books is interested in inspirational books geared to all audiences (except children): men, women, and young adult. Books can be instructional or devotional in nature. (We do not accept memoirs.)

Southern Story Books

Nonfiction and Fiction Books with a Southern voice

NEEDS

Southern Story Books publishes fiction and nonfiction books that have a clearly Southern slant. 


Fiction books should be geared to women or young adults and can be either novella size (20,000 to 50,000 words) or novel size (50,000 to 80,000 words). We accept romance, historical fiction, mystery, and contemporary literary fiction. They should all have a plot, setting, or character element that is uniquely Southern.


Nonfiction books should have a Southern theme. Potential topics include religion, social issues, culture, humor, sports, lifestyle, and history. The word count for our nonfiction ebooks can vary greatly, anywhere from 15,000 to 75,000 (ebooks can be shorter than traditionally published books, but the selling prices will lower accordingly).
