We Love to Tell the Story!

Scroll Down



Higher Ground Books & Media is an independent Christian-based publisher designed to provide a platform from which selected authors may share their stories. We are a unique publishing company and one of the few publishers who accept unsolicited, un-agented manuscripts. The ultimate goal of this company is not to provide authors with a place to promote themselves, but to provide them with a place where they can share their stories of triumph over personal challenges and in doing so, glorify God.  Specifically, we are looking for how God has made an impact in your life. Books with themes that run contrary to God's word aren't likely to be accepted.
