The mission of Watersprings Publishing is to publish books that renew the mind, refresh the spirit, and restore the soul. We accept books for the Christian marketplace, as well as children’s books, educational, business, poetry, and cookbooks. Self-publishing is also an entry into entrepreneurship. Authors who understand this from the beginning will be more prepared for all the work and time involved in the self-publishing process.
We evaluate manuscripts holistically and individually, assessing its strengths and readiness for publishing. If you are unsure if you are ready to publish, take our assessment and answer some questions to test your readiness. Before you submit your book for publishing, please download our manuscript submission checklist. We do not want your first draft, we want your best draft. (Note: Writers who get their manuscripts edited before submission increases the quality of the work and readiness for the publishing process.) Books that require a lot of developmental re-working will not be accepted at this time, but we will provide recommendations for a writing coach and/or a developmental editor.
