Kregel Inc. is a family-owned evangelical Christian publisher whose general Kregel Publications imprint introduces about twenty-four new titles per year, in a variety of genres and categories, both fiction and nonfiction, for men and women, ages 18 and up.
Among our top interests in nonfiction are Christian living titles for specific audiences, women’s and family issues, and spiritual growth or discipleship with a distinct author voice, typically 50,000 to 70,000 words. We are interested in nonfiction authors who are well qualified to speak to the topic at hand.
When you visit Kregel.com, please notice that we distribute books for Lion Hudson PLC based in the UK; not all of the books on our website are published by Kregel.
In fiction, Kregel is looking for romance and its various subgenres, and historical and its various subgenres. Stories should be well crafted—not overtly preachy though having undeniably biblical Christian spiritual content, with relatable characters, believable action, and natural dialogue.
In nonfiction, we are not looking for Bible studies or devotionals or very general Christian living titles meant to target Christians at large. In fiction, we are not looking for literary, speculative, fantasy, sci-fi, horror, or allegory.

Writing Nonfiction with Authority
It takes more than a great idea to place a book with a publisher. What are the hard questions you need to ask yourself to determine if your idea—with you as its author—is sellable? Do you have the authority to write on the subject that’s pressing on your heart? If the answer is no, what can you do? If the answer is yes, how do you then write with the voice of authority? This workshop will summarize the work to be done to confidently approach your audience with experience, expertise, and excellence, offering a real takeaway value that will benefit the reader.
