3. I only have ideas…nothing on paper yet. I’ll drop by FOW when my book is completed.

This is a very common misunderstanding among potential writers. Fount of Wisdom wants to come alongside you in the early stages of writing to help facilitate the procedure. A completed manuscript is NOT necessary. Bring your ideas along, and Fount of Wisdom can help you develop those good ideas into book form.

4. HOW exactly will Fount of Wisdom help me to publish my book?

Good question! Certainly Fount of Wisdom will not “take over” your work. You, the writer, will be involved in every step of the process.

We will spell everything out for you in contract form, giving you the working deadlines that help keep your book on track. The end goal will be a high quality book that sells widely!

5. Does FOW want translated materials or original works?

Another good question! While FOW has certainly published many fine translated works, and will continue to do so in the future, ultimately we desire to assist Cambodian authors produce original thought, culturally relevant, and biblically sound materials! If all you have is an idea, that is just the seed that is needed to produce a book, or a booklet, or even a whole series of books!
