CrossLink Publishing: Accepting Submissions

Written by Emily Harstone

Important: Read This Before Submitting Your Manuscript

Seven common manuscript submissions mistakes that are very easy to avoid.

CrossLink Publishing is a small Christian publishing company. They are based in Rapid City, South Dakota. They are a subsidiary of the CrossLink family of ministries. They have distribution through Baker & Taylor, Noble Marketing, the Bowker Database and the Ingram Distribution Channel.

They only work with North American authors.

They publish Christian books, and although they do not clearly spell out which genres they are most interested in, they seem to publish mostly spiritual non-fiction and fiction aimed at young children. I am not that big a fan of their covers and recognize a number of the images on them from free image websites.

They do not publish many books per year. The last book they published was in November 2020, but they do have a number of books slated for publication in 2021, which you can see here, if you click on the ‘Coming Soon’ tab.

You can learn more about what they are looking for by visiting their FAQ.

You can submit to them through their submission portal here.
