PRINT ON DEMAND (POD)

Print-on-demand (POD) technology has revolutionized book publishing by making it faster and less expensive to publish a new book or republish out of print titles. You can have one, ten, or a hundred books printed, without the additional costs and risk of maintaining a large inventory on hand. Because each book is digitally stored in a database, a book published on demand will never go out of print.

Customize your Print on Demand Program to include only the services you need. In this way, we can tailor our POD Program to fit any budget. Please note that editing is three cents ($0.03) per word and not included in any package. However, the Upgraded and Premium packages do include a discount on editing prices, among other things. Review the POD Process for more information.

Entry Program

Our Entry Program is made for the author who has a previously published book but would like to republish through Christian Living Books. To qualify, submit press-ready files. It does not include editing or distribution options.

Basic Program

The Basic Program is for authors who would like publishing services but do not need distribution. These authors will receive a printed book and the ability to order additional books. Distribution can be added in the future.

Standard Program

Our Standard Program includes all the services you would need to have an excellent book that is available to at least 70,000 retailers, worldwide. This program features free books as well as distribution.

Ugraded and Premium Programs

Full-service Upgraded and Premium Programs provide higher royalties, more features, and increasing discounts. Many services are included such as ebooks, copyright registration & backcover copy.
