Christian Self-Publishing

Explore Self-Publishing Christian Books Through Xulon Press

Since its inception, Christian self-publishing company Xulon Press has become the fastest growing self-publisher of Christian books in the world.

If you’re like most Christian authors, you’re looking for an affordable, hassle-free way to make your publishing dream a reality! Unfortunately, the reality of the traditional publishing industry is that it is both costly and exclusive. Unlike traditional publishing houses, self-publishing offers you the rare opportunity to retain creative control of your book, resulting in a higher-quality, above-par product.

While self-publishing requires the author to undertake the costs associated with publication, distribution, and marketing of their Christian book, the good news is the author keeps 100% of ALL sales profits. As such, royalties incurred from self-published books will be significantly higher than those from books released by mainstream publishers. And, unlike traditional publishing houses, when you self-publish a book there is no obligation on the part of an author to buy copies of their book. You can reach a readership of thousands through our distribution network without having to purchase large quantities of your book!

Xulon Press was founded in 2000 with the vision that self-published authors should have an easier way to get their books noticed. Since its inception, Xulon Press has become the fastest growing self-publisher of Christian books in the world, having released more than 10,000 individual book titles.

You don’t have to warehouse a large quantity of books.

Ordering copies of your book is very affordable.

If you have a book signing, conference or special event and need to order books directly, Xulon Press offers one of the largest volume discounts in the self-publishing industry. You can review our book retail prices and volume discount page for more information on large quantity authors. We also provide you with free book sales profitability analysis to help you make the best decision on the quantity of books you need to order. See our page on Book Retail Prices for additional information.

100% Royalty!

We are one of very few publishers who pay 100% of the net profits on all books sold through 3rd party retailers like Family Christian Stores, Lifeway, Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble, etc. Retailers typically keep about 55% of the retail price. Once you subtract the cost of printing, shipping and the share the retailer keeps, the rest is yours. We keep NOTHING so you earn as much as possible from your work! See our page on Understanding Your Royalty Rates for additional information, including details on how to calculate your royalty.
