Jeff Gerke has been called the de facto gatekeeper of Christian speculative fiction. He writes fiction how-to books for Writers Digest, runs an indie publishing company (www.MarcherLordPress), is a multi-published novelist and a full-time book editor, cover designer, and typesetter. Novels he has published, edited, and/or acquired have won Christy Awards, the Carol Award, the EPIC Award, the INDIE Award, and the Foreword Reviews magazine Book of the Year Award.
His writing books include The Art & Craft of Writing Christian Fiction, Plot Versus Character, The First 50 Pages, and Write Your Novel in a Month: How to Complete a First Draft in 30 Days and What to Do Next (July 2013). Jeff lives in Colorado Springs with his wife and three children.
Marcher Lord Press is looking for:
Completed manuscripts of 65,000+ words written for Christian adults, teens, or older YA (age 11+) in the speculative genres: science fiction, fantasy, time travel, etc.
They also recently added the Marcher Lord Hinterlands imprint, which is speculative fiction (SF, fantasy, etc.) for adult audiences that has significant Christian content but may also contain more mature content and is targeted to the non-Christian adult or the mature Christian adult reader.
Jeff will review through the manuscript submissions program.
