ChristianSmallPublishersAssociation-webChristian Small Publishers Association (CSPA) celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. The organization was formed to represent, strengthen and promote small publishers in the Christian marketplace.

When CSPA was founded in January 2004, independent publishing was just beginning to take off. During the past 10 years, CSPA has grown from its humble origins of three founding members to serving more than 100 small publishers and independently published authors.

“I am thankful for the privilege that God has granted CSPA to help small publishers and independent authors grow and market their books effectively to Christian readers,” said CSPA Director Sarah Bolme. “It is amazing how the publishing landscape has changed in the past 10 years, and how independently published books are now becoming the norm.”

CSPA offers a number of programs to help their members market their books and to bring recognition to small publishers and independently published authors. These programs include cooperative marketing efforts, marketing consultation, a books-for-bloggers review program called BookCrash and the annual Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award.
