Losers Like Us

“Christian Manuscript Submissions (CMS) is a remarkable service for first-time authors. I had looked into self-publication but finally decided to go with CMS, and it was the best decision I made. The CMS website really simplified the proposal process, and Jenni's consulting expertise encouraged me every step of the way. It seems too good to be true, but after a few months in the CMS database my proposal was picked up by David C Cook, and Losers Like Us will be published in June 2014. I have experienced firsthand the benefits of using CMS, and I highly recommend it. It really does work! ”

—Dan, contracted by David C Cook for release June, 2014

Traditional-Royalty Publishers Praise ChristianManuscriptSubmissions.com
Bethany House/ Baker Publishing Group signs two new authors
ChristianManuscriptSubmissions.com is a quick and easy way to find interesting projects that probably wouldn't come across my desk otherwise. I have signed two authors from this site over the last twelve months and continue to check for new proposals on a regular basis.

Logos/ Kirkdale Press contracts with three new authors in 2011
"We have contracted several authors through your site, and I must say that your site is fantastic! It makes the process of finding and contacting authors so simple. I love that I can see the author’s background and qualifications, when dealing with certain subjects it is vital to know why the author feels they have the wisdom and knowledge to portray themselves as an expert on it."

Discovery House Publishers
"We regularly check the database on ChristianManuscriptSubmissions.com, and we appreciate the way you help aspiring authors provide us with professionally written proposals that give us interesting book ideas in an efficient manner. Thank you for making our work easier.”

Harvest House Publishers
"With approximately 1,200 queries, proposals, and manuscripts arriving annually, it’s a tedious task wading through them in search of the 2% that actually fit our publishing program. That's why referring unsolicited submissions to CMS is the most efficient, cost-effective way for first-time authors to share their work with members of the ECPA, and for publishers to find exactly what they’re looking for. Everybody wins.”
