Wildhouse Publications exists to enliven the spiritual quests of people outside or on the margins of established religious and spiritual traditions through books that are thoughtful, accessible, impactful, and practical.
Books from Wildhouse Publications offer practical ways to deepen spirituality and enhance the meaning of our readers’ lives. We publish substantive spiritual explorations that our readers can trust. We aim to build an imprint that is widely respected while helping to advance the spiritual journeys of our readers.
Wildhouse Publications believes that the way we operate matters. We adhere to these key principles.
The Wildhouse Publications imprint curates books for adventurous people with unconventional spirituality. We publish a variety of genres but always trade books and always with our target audience in mind. We want to support gifted authors who also intend to address the WHP audience, even when it is financially risky to do so. We achieve that by means of a flexible hybrid publishing model. The flexible hybrid model encompasses both traditional book publishing at one extreme, where the publisher carries all of the financial burden of bringing a book to reality and authors are paid through royalties, and self-publishing at the opposite extreme, where authors carry the financial burden of helping a book see the light of day and enjoy a higher share of royalties. Many book projects are somewhere in between, with the risk shared between author and publisher. WHP makes the call about where on the flexible hybrid publishing spectrum a project belongs based on the author’s existing platform as well as the probable size and accessibility of the audience for the book project. In this way, WHP can embrace established authors with large platforms, and also welcome newer, untested authors with great ideas into the WHP author family.
