Everything you need.
We provide editing, design, publishing, marketing, sales, and distribution together in one place.
At Word Alive Press, we are a perfect hybrid between professional services (like a traditional publisher) and accessibility (like a self-publisher). We understand the Canadian Christian market, and our authors benefit from that expertise. When working with Word Alive Press, you will have access to the same supply-chain distribution that traditional publishers use to help you reach the widest audience possible with your message. That is truly unique to us in the Canadian Christian market. You can count on us to guide you through each phase of the publishing process. We support our authors, with a relationship that continues long after the publishing process has ended.

Is my manuscript any good?
We can help you answer that question before you go through the time, energy, and expense of publishing. Let us provide you with a free editorial assessment of your manuscript to help identify whether your writing still needs work, would benefit from big-picture (developmental) editing, or simply needs copyediting before hitting bookstore shelves. We’ll pinpoint what you’re doing well, and address any areas that could be stronger. This free feedback is part of our vision to help you make your book the best it can be.
