There is room on their shelves for your book

logos21st Century Publishing Group is happy to present four imprints. Our main imprint, 21st Century Press is for authors who are writing for a broad market. We have published titles dealing with prophecy, family, spirituality and pretty much everything that deals with the Christian life. On the other hand, 21c Publishers was formed to publish books in the area of holistic medicine and success. Sonship Books for Young Readers is our young reader imprint. Viewpoint Press is for authors who want to get a platform for their message. We will not always agree with their viewpoint. 

Although our books cover a wide variety of subjects, one thing is true of all of them: professional quality. From the editing to the cover design to the pagination of the complete book, we strive for excellence at every level.

Who doesn't want to become a bestselling author who has his or her book on the New York Times bestselling list. Maybe you already envision yourself on the Today Show or on the 700 Club! We have been blessed to have our books and authors featured on the 700 Club!

But the reality is...

brainstormWith over 80,000 books published in the market each year, there is huge competition for shelf space in the stores and to get exposure through the media you need to have experienced an event that is worthy of national attention.

You can decide to go through the process alone if you have the drive and publish your book on-demand. But if you have a platform to present your message and can sell more than 500 books, print on-demand is not for you. Our authors print from 500 to 5,000 or more books through us. Some choose to to go on-demand. We specialize in print on demand, and have established a strong relationship with Amazon and Ingram for the distribution of our on demand titles.The fact is, less than 1 percent of the authors who are published through mainstream publishers get any exposure in the bookstores or through author tours.

At 21st Century Publishing Group you will receive the attention you deserve. We provide collaboration and brainstorming on your title, your cover design will be handled by a graphic artist who has his finger to the changing climate of design. We provide full editorial support by professional editors. In short we will strive to give you an award winning book.Contact us today and we can begin the publishing process worthy of your investment.
