Publishing

Publishing Ministry

CLC Kenya aims at increasing access to books that impact communities. We do this through traditional publishing, facilitation of self-publishing, print-on-demand and writing classes.

We believe that books give our communities access to the world’s best wisdom, and stretch our minds past any conceivable horizon. They are the ultimate form of self-education and the ultimate tool for personal empowerment.

If you want more out of life, somewhere there is a book on a shelf or computer that will be your friend and guide.

If you’re an author, you should write with might, and birth a book that will light the way for others. If you are a reader, keep flexing the muscles of your mind!

In traditional publishing, the publisher bears the costs, such as editing, marketing, and paying advances so that the author can receive royalties from the success of his/her book achieves.
The self-publishing landscape has changed considerably in the past two decades with new technologies such as the Internet, and the $1 billion markets continuing to change at a rapid pace. Increasingly there are numerous alternatives to traditional publishing, and self-publishing is becoming the first choice for writers.
Print-on-Demand enables a single copy of a book to be printed!  Large commercial digital printers are very expensive but now technology has developed to the point that small scale equipment is available. CLC Kenya has a Print-on-Demand facility which enables us to respond quickly to local demands. This has made it possible for Kenyan authors to have their books published and printed in a way that would have been unthinkable previously. All that is required is a digital copy of the book and our Print-on-Demand department can produce the book for you.
Writing your book is a critical step towards getting published, which is the best way to share an idea or story that matters to you, while at the same time impacting the life of someone else. A simple book that you actually get to write is better than an awesome one that you dream of writing and is still in your head. Most people have a dream of writing a book but never realize it. This is why we are here today, now! To make sure that the book makes it out of your head into your word processor.    In this process, you should expect to get an accountability mentor towards completing your book.
