YORBA LINDA, CA (ANS – April 26, 2017) — Many have scoffed at independent publishing believing that authors whose titles are printed through the independents is because they couldn’t land a traditional deal. However, that swell of opinion is changing because of authors like Pamela Christian who consistently produce titles of quality. Christian’s first two books in her Faith to Live By series, (Protocol, Ltd) have each won two awards — so far. The third in the series is expected on May 15, 2017, and already has the markings of enjoying the same success.
“As an inexperienced author, I published the first book in the series with a “hybrid” publishing company, who is part of a major house, wanting some hand holding in the process. That experience was dreadful and cost me a great deal of money, only to end up with an inferior product. The cover they provided me was so bad that when I challenged them they not only agreed, they refunded my money for the cover. That’s when I decided to go with a small publisher. I found my own book cover image and designer for Examine Your Faith! Finding Truth in a World of Lies, which then won the 2013 AuthorsDB Book Cover Contest for my genre.” Christian learned so much from her first experience that four years later she now coaches authors through the book production process.
The next two awards were given to her second book, Renew Your Hope! Remedy for Personal Breakthroughs. Christian won the 2014 Indie Excellence Award, and the 2015 Selah Awards with over 350 books, fourteen genres and twenty-nine publishers. The latter being competition among indie’s and major traditional publishers. The fourth and most recent award was announced April 24, 2017 by Small Christian Publishers Association for Examine Your Faith! Finding Truth in a World of Lies. This competition had over 5,000 reader ballots on over 120 books with Christian’s book winning in the category of Christian Education.
As a complete unknown in the world of Christian authors, Christian has managed to secure some impressive names to endorse her books. Josh McDowell, Dr. Craig Hazen, Dan Story, and Dr. Charles H. Kraft for the first two. With this third book endorsers include Dr. Richard Land, James Goll, among others. When asked how she managed to snag such great endorsements Christian responds with an expression amazement “I had the nerve to research their contact information and boldly ask.”
Her success is also evident with the outstanding reviews her books have received. People have asked to review her subsequent books. While Christian’s yet to make bestselling status, it seems she’s on her way.
Christian is an author, speaker and media personality, hosting both radio and television. Pamela Christian Ministries was founded in 1997.

She and her husband live in Yorba Linda, CA, with their two grown children and families living nearby.
