We are Little Lamb Books, a middle grade and young adult faith-based publisher specializing in enriching, encouraging and inspiring middle grade and young adult readers through creative storytelling that blends interesting characters and a strong plot with the faith journey of believers and non-believers.
We are based in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with a small team of employees who enjoy working in a start-up environment to create a strong catalog of novels that will reach guys and girls between the ages of 8-18. We publish a variety of contemporary Christian, mystery and suspense, humor, adventure and science fiction. We want strong characters, detailed scenes, a moving plot and a strong faith journey that is relevant to our readers.
All our books will be available in eBooks, trade paperbacks and hardbacks. We will be distributed in the U.S. and our first titles will be on sale in early 2016. We offer our authors royalties, strong editing guidance, original cover illustrations, and a fresh social marketing timeline. We hope that through our work with authors, families, and readers, we will build a company that builds a legacy of integrity, promotes a positive platform for our authors to fulfill their God-given destinies and dreams, and elevates the faith of our readers through creative storytelling that helps them feel empowered.
