With the Christmas season approaching, Jesus is on the minds of Christians everywhere. Celebrating the birth of Christ is a worldwide event that brings joy and happiness to communities across the globe. But in many Christian faiths, the bigger holiday is Easter — the resurrection. It is at this time that the tenets of Christianity and the teachings of Christ are on the minds of so many. If you are planning to self-publish a Christian book, you may want to time its publication with this holiday. The team at Izzard Ink has some valuable advice for you about Christian book publishing.
While Christmas is a joyous holiday that makes it easy to capitalize on the commercial aspect of self-publishing — selling books — Easter is more contemplative. Many nonreligious people celebrate Christmas because it’s a fun holiday full of presents, delicious foods, Santa Claus, reindeer, the Grinch and so many other contemporary inventions.
The Easter holiday is more than 2,000 years old. It celebrates Christ’s rising from the dead and gives Christians everywhere hope for the future and the afterlife. It coincides with spring, a time of rebirth and renewal. While the Easter Bunny has become doggedly associated with the holiday, its origins are still noble and sincere.
Self-Publishing a Christian Book
Of course you can self-publish a Christian book at any time of the year. But depending on your idea, some times might be better than others.
Some top-selling books today have themes that include holding true to your Christianity in a world with declining morality, how to emulate Christian figures to improve your life today, and improving mental health through forgiveness. These themes are appropriate 365 days a year.
However, if you are considering self-publishing a book that’s historical in nature, you may want to tie it to a particular time of year. For instance, if you are publishing a book about the parallels between the life of Christ and other major historical figures, you may want to time its debut with the birth or death of Christ.
If you’re considering a self-help type of book with daily affirmations, Bible verses or other types of inspirational content, you may want to self-publish it close to New Year’s, when many people are ready to make changes in their life and are looking for guidance.
