BroadStreet Publishing Group publishes biographies, Majestic Expressions adult coloring books, The Passion Translation of the Bible, Christian living, fiction, devotionals, and Bible promise books. BroadStreet also publishes women's journals, devotional journals, and planners under its Belle City Gifts imprint.
Broadstreet Publishing is looking for devotionals, gift books, nonfiction (in virtually every genre), and fiction (only if the story-telling and writing are stellar). We are not looking for YA fiction, or autobiographies (unless by well-known people). BroadStreet recently began considering children’s books now, primarily for ages 8 to 12.
