GREENVILLE, S.C., Feb. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingdom Winds Publishing is celebrating its first year in business with a series of special promotions for readers and new authors. Readers will gain chances to win free books while new authors will receive a package of enhanced benefits.
Kingdom Winds Publishing is the book publishing arm of Kingdom Winds, a multi-faceted start-up enterprise dedicated to helping Christian creatives and ministries successfully pursue their purpose and mission. At its core is KingdomWinds.com—a multimedia digital publishing platform and online marketplace featuring the content and works of a formal alliance called the Kingdom Winds Collective.
"By design, we actually commenced operations of book publishing prior to the launch of KingdomWinds.com itself," explained Co-Founder Elizabeth Suess. "We knew that building the website and integrated operations would require a longer timeline, but we were excited to get started in helping authors bring their books to life."
KingdomWinds.com went live in the fourth quarter of last year with a limited set of collective members, including its own published authors and a select group of creatives and ministries. The new enterprise has also begun offering other value-added services tailored to the needs of its collective members, including marketing and web design.
"Kingdom Winds Publishing offers a unique value proposition that combines the best of traditional and Indie publishing," added Gary Suess, President and Co-Founder of Kingdom Winds. "We provide hands-on assistance to help authors navigate the process and make their books shine—while allowing them to retain content control, book rights, and a substantially higher profit margin. Additionally, authors are welcomed into the Kingdom Winds Collective and gain access to what we believe will become the premier Christian platform to drive book sales."
"Central to our values is building a sense of partnership with our authors and collective members—and central to our mission is helping to bring God-inspired works to life and dispersing them to their intended audience," offered Elizabeth. "We have been blessed with a diverse array of books from some talented authors in our first year! This has included varying genres from a book of poetry to a prayer book to an adorable children's book to a powerful testimony with biblical teaching."
The Christian publisher's first year offerings included Shawn Hunting's Bapticostal, a powerful testimony of his baptism of the Holy Spirit that leads readers to a deeper relationship with the Lord. This was followed by a similarly powerful book entitled A Diary of Prayers, written by Yvonne Britt, another emerging new author. Another new offering, Joy All Around Us: Finding Joy in an Upside-Down World, authored by the Kingdom Winds Co-Founders, is a light-hearted, yet thought-provoking book that celebrates everyday blessings to help map out the pathway to a life filled with joy.
Other notable published works of different genres are Echoes of His Heart: Messages of Hope, Forgiveness, Mercy, and Grace by Debbie Andrews Smith and Higgins Takes Flight by Carter Stuart. Smith masterfully uses poetry to capture God's heart, love, and grace for all His children to offer comfort and healing. Stuart's popular new children's book is filled with her whimsical art to tell a sweet story that encourages readers to keep chasing their dreams.
All Kingdom Winds Publishing books can be purchased in the marketplace on KingdomWinds.com. Visitors can also find other published works by and information about the authors and all the Kingdom Winds Collective members there as well. Registering to join the Kingdom Winds Community provides automatic eligibility for special promotions, including the one-year anniversary book giveaways.

Authors interested in Kingdom Winds Publishing may submit an inquiry on either website to obtain a free consultation as well as become eligible for the special anniversary offer with an enhanced package of services.
"We are thankful to already be working with a very talented group of authors to produce some outstanding books in year 1 and soon-to-be released in year 2. It is our great pleasure and purpose to help advance the Kingdom together," concluded Gary.
