Blue Deco's history also shows why it can be dangerous to deal with publishing companies that are primarily one- or two-person companies. Christian Faith Publishing, as the name suggests, is aimed at Christian writers: "in discovering and marketing unfamiliar Christian scribes who want to achieve the greatest possible effect that can be imagined through the use of the literal world.
" She calls herself a "full-service publishing house" - a deceptive assertion, because the writers have to make "a minimum investment". At what level? Whilst the investments our approved writers are asked to make to get a work onto the global shelves vary according to the subtleties of each work, all of our writers are lucky enough to produce, distribute and commercialise their work through a short-term, accessible instalment scheme that must be collected from the sales revenue of the work by the writer before we are eligible for any royalties!
How much do the editors get for these huge surcharges? However, naïve editors may not recognize this, because CFP not only takes care to describe itself as a "publisher", but also promises that it is "very selective" and that the editors will have "availability" in "points of sale". While his website reveals that contributors have to foot the bill, this is hidden in the FAQ section and therefore overlooked.
Combine these deceptive features with the fact that Christian authors tend to rely on a business that recognizes itself as a Christian, and you have a flawless honeysaddle.

Acknowledging that there are as many systems, fraud and fraudulent ministries in Christian publishing as in other market. Only because a person or firm announces their faith does not mean that they are treating you fairly or offering you a rewarding experience at a sensible cost. Indeed, in relation to sales and sales, faith is secondary.
CFP s only provide junkmarketing and use exactly the same sales channel as all others.
