What Are Gospelscribes?
Gospelscribes are nerds with pens and Bibles! We provide ghostwriting and editing services for pastors, ministers and other Christian authors. This division of geniuscribes offers the same ghostwriting packages and publishing services that geniuscribes offers, but the writers who work on these projects have been trained in sound Christian doctrine.
Why Was Gospelscribes Developed?
After helping clients develop manuscripts for more than a decade, the geniuscribes team recognized that there was a whole world of pastors out there who needed Christian books developed. However, they didn’t have confidence in traditional ghostwriters to get the job done. After all, it takes a certain level of biblical training to accurately write manuscripts of this nature. Souls are on the line, and their lives depend on the doctrinal soundness and theological precision of the Christian books they read! To meet this need, we developed gospelscribes: nerds with pens and Bibles!
How The Gospelscribes Process Works
Typically, pastors and ministers will provide our gospelscribes with a preaching series consisting of four related messages, each about 30 – 45 minutes in length. Believe it or not, one of these preaching series can provide sufficient content for the development of a topical book!
Our writers listen to and transcribe the audio recordings and then review all of the content to propose an outline for a book. After the outline is approved by the author, our skilled writers go to work, crafting the teachings into a well-organized, biblically-sound manuscript in the speaker’s voice, tone, and personality. If there are gaps in the content or flow of the book, we conduct a phone interview with the pastor to fill them in, and we keep writing until the message is seamless, compelling and complete. Finished manuscripts are forwarded to the author for review before being sent to final proofing and editing. By the way, our editors are biblically trained, too!
Finally, once the manuscript development process if completed and the author signs off on the manuscript for content, writing style and accuracy, it’s all about selecting the right publishing package (print and ebook) that will introduce the book to readers all over the world.
Christian Writer Retreats
Sometimes, Christian authors don’t want to use a ghostwriter; they want to develop their manuscripts on their own, or at least take the first stab at it before they pass it on to a professional writer to complete. We totally get that.
Unfortunately, the non-stop demands of life and ministry make finding the time to get a book done nearly impossible. Like other aspiring authors, Christian authors benefit from getting away from it all in a serene, scenic setting to spend concentrated time on developing their book.
Complete with writing coaches, developmental sessions, creativity exercises, communal meals, and opportunities to read your work in front of a non-judgmental audience that will provide valuable feedback on your work, evening gatherings and activities and the opportunity to fellowship with other like-minded Christian authors.
