WhiteFire began with a vision to embrace those books that authors write from the heart but which can’t always find a home in Christian publishing because of risk factors like subject matter, setting, or length. We believe above all in the redemptive power of Jesus’s sacrifice…and we also believe that His light shines brightest against the darkness of reality. Our current imprints include our original WhiteFire line of fine fiction and nonfiction, WhiteSpark, with offerings of picture books, middle grade novels, and young adult fiction, and our newest acquisition, Ashberry Lane, now a WhiteFire romance imprint. Above all, our stories embrace the motto of “Where Spirit Meets the Page.” We are a traditional publisher currently looking for high quality books in all genres mentioned above. In adult fiction we’re looking for contemporary, historical, romance, suspense, speculative, or any combination of those. In young adult we’re especially looking for to dystopian, fantasy, sci-fi, romance, and general. In nonfiction we specialize in inspirational, Christian living, and literary style memoir.
