We’re readers too. As long-time, voracious readers, we have set a high bar for our own reading choices and expect to reach those high expectations with the books we publish. We love a well-written story that pulls us into the characters’ world and a plot that keeps us flipping pages into the wee hours of the morning, so we can expect nothing less from the books we publish.
Our Books Will Have:
- A unique and intriguing premise
- A plot that will keep you guessing until the end
- Realistic characters you can care for
- A well-crafted, professional cover
- Excellent editing
2) All of Castle Gate Press’ books will be written from a Christian worldview
Does this mean our books will all contain overt Christianity and preachy themes? Absolutely not! It means the baseline values presented will be those taught in the Christian faith. Whether that faith will be an overt part of the story or a background fact will vary from book to book.
- Will contain Christian values and principles
- May contain overt Christian themes
- May not contain overt Christian themes beyond the underlying Christian worldview
- Will not glorify immoral behavior
- Will not include profanity
- Will not include excessive violence
- Will not include gratuitous sexual content; sweet romances only
3) Castle Gate Press will publish novels of all genres…with a twist of the fantastic
In each of the novels we offer, the premise will include something strange going on in the plot or the life of the main characters.
- Time travel
- An experiment gone wrong
- Inter-dimensional communication
- Angels and/or demons
- Characters with super powers
- Alternative timelines
- Characters with extra-sensory perceptions
- Fantasy creatures in our contemporary world
Examples that Fit the Castle Gate Press Vision (regarding strangeness):
|It’s a Wonderful Life||
|The Narnia books|
|Back to the Future||
|The Wizard of Oz|
|Lord of the Rings|
|Robin Cook books|
In a nutshell, when you pick up a Castle Gate Press book, you will hold a well-written and edited novel with characters you can love and plot twists that will keep you guessing until the final page.
Our first novel will be released in mid-October and it is a perfect example of the type of book you can expect from Castle Gate Press.
