Where We Came From
The Crossover Alliance began as an online community where a group of authors saw a vacuum in the Christian publishing industry - a complete lack of stories that contained Christ-centered themes with real-world content. A need was discovered, a gaping maw where secular and Christian publishers dare not tread for fear of crossing the boundary lines between secular and Christian fiction. The Crossover Alliance publishing company was birthed to cross this line, and we aim to disrupt the publishing industry with our unique mission.
The Crossover Alliance is a unique publishing company specializing in Christian fiction that contains edgy, real-world content. We weren't satisfied with the 'rules' that many Christian publishing companies have tried to pin Christian authors in - however well-intended these rules were - and so we set out to create a publishing company that both breaks many of these rules and also adheres to biblical principles. Our fiction is fearless, sometimes scary, sometimes raw and edgy. But there in the middle of it all you will find a light to help you find your way through it, you will more than likely find redemption within the darkness, and most importantly you will find fiction that is true to the story, not the rules.
What We Publish
When we say 'real-world content' in Christian fiction, you might be wondering what that covers exactly. Real-world content can mean a great many things - violence, cursing, sexual content, etc. But it can also represent themes that aren't always welcomed or addressed in Christian fiction, such as abortion, slavery, genocide, etc. We want to be a publishing company that specializes in compelling, true-to-the-story, authentic fiction while also keeping with Biblical standards. We don't try to be edgy just to be edgy. We aren't into shock-and-awe, but more into telling a story that entertains, enriches, and even sometimes digs to the deepest part of you and shows you the horrors of the world while also showing you the path through those horrors.
There are a handful of specific genres The Crossover Alliance is not currently looking to publish at this time. These include books that are purely romance in nature, and Young Adult fiction. Our doors may open for these genres at some time in the future, at which time we'll update our submission guidelines to reflect that. If you're in doubt as to whether or not we'd accept your work, don't hesitate to contact us!
