Sidetracked-webThe collaborative publishing effort of the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, Believers Press, Bethany Press and Anchor Distributors—1Source—launches its first releases May 6.

The 1Source novels in the initial release are: Hallowed Halls by Hannah Alexander (pen name of Cheryl and Mel Hodde), Sidetracked by Brandilyn Collins, Passing Strangers by Angela Hunt, Child’s Play by Bill Myers and Twice a Slave by Sammy Tippit with Randy Willis.

Jenkins, who has published more than 180 books with 70 million copies sold and whose Christian Writers Guild has trained writers for 50 years is “excited to see these new releases hit the market after all the work that has gone into each manuscript,” he said. “I look forward to the responses from readers.”

Dave Sheets, president of Christian Writers Guild and Believers Press, is “proud of our 1Source authors and their efforts in these new books,” he said. “These authors already have a loyal following and will continue to provide great books for readers. As an independent publisher, we are able to provide authors choices in what services they’d like to engage, and we do so with our editorial, production, marketing and distribution through a major wholesaler.”

Chris Robinette of Anchor Distributors, which has been servicing the Christian market for 40 years, said: “For independent authors, there is nothing like this type of opportunity to be part of a direct sales program with a print-on-demand solution. We look forward to ensuring these books are available in retail outlets.”
