WestBow Press, the strategic self-publishing division of the world’s largest Christian publisher, Thomas Nelson, Inc., announced an agreement today with Berean Christian Stores to offer publishing packages that provide authors with guaranteed stocking and book signing opportunities in Berean Christian Stores across the country. WestBow Press and the Ohio-based Christian retail chain have developed two unique publishing packages exclusively for Westbow Press authors.
WestBow Press authors who take advantage of the exclusive Berean publishing packages will have their books displayed in a new Indie Publishing section of Berean stores, according to Greg Moore, director of merchandising for Berean Christian Stores. Moore added, “We are very excited to feature WestBow Press titles in our stores. Indie books are becoming quite a force in publishing, and this program really allows us to be more involved with the up-and-coming Indie Christian authors in our communities.”
The new publishing packages will be available to prospective Westbow Press authors starting August 15, according to Keith Ogorek, senior VP of global marketing at Author Solutions, Inc., the strategic publishing partner of Thomas Nelson. “Creating this relationship with Berean provides Westbow Press authors an unprecedented opportunity to put their books on store shelves around the country. This is just another way WestBow Press is working to ensure now is the best time in history to be an author,” continued Ogorek.
