Excel Publishers has announced a trail-blazing initiative with My Healthy Church, a direct-to-church distributor and publisher of Christian resources through the Assemblies of God. The partnership will launch Salubris Publishing, a custom imprint for Christian writers who are called to speak spiritual truth to the world today.
The Nov. 1 launch of Salubris Publishing will utilize Excel’s state-of-the-art typesetting program and capability to print books upon request in just 24 hours or less. The white-label service will facilitate high-speed publishing in e-book and print format to the consumer and trade markets.
“The Assemblies of God is one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in the world, so it’s exciting to be involved in a project like this,” said Tom Freiling, director of Excel Publishers and founder of Xulon Press. “We are honored to have the opportunity to work with this denomination, and be able to offer this platform.”
Salubris will present three tiers of publishing packages for potential authors, including options for social media promotion and book microsites. Books published under this imprint also have the ability to reach markets in the United States and Latin America, including the preference for Spanish-language translation.
Steve and Susan Blount, co-publishers of Salubris, said the partnership with My Healthy Church came to fruition at an opportune time.
“We have been looking for a partner to work with us to create a custom publishing solution that extends our ability to offer even more authors a platform for sharing their stories,” the Blounts said in a statement. “We believe with Excel we have found the best solution.”
With the ability to publish nonfiction, fiction, leadership, Christian living, devotionals, young adult, children’s books and more, Salubris aims to reach beyond the 66 million members of the denomination with the unchanged biblical mandate the Assemblies of God will soon carry into its 100th year.
