Cross Creek Books™ publishes Christian fiction written and illustrated for ages 8 and older, commonly referred to as Middle Grade (MG).
Inside each of our Cross Creek Books titles you'll meet characters who are saved, characters who aren't sure what they believe, or if they can even trust in a Lord they can't see, and characters who may never find the Lord at all.
Cross Creek Books™ for MG (middle grade) feature kids who enjoy life, experience friendships, various family relationships, and their stories may be set anywhere in the world. Each title sends its characters on new adventures, exploring mysteries, and making their own history.
Cross Creek YA™ publishes Christian fiction for ages 13-18+ and is known as Young Adult (YA).
Depending on the imprint, series, and line, our titles are published in hardcover, paperback, various ebook formats, and some titles have audio and foreign language(s) planned.
All of the Cross Creek Books titles are family-friendly, feature Christian characters, protagonists that rely on the word of God for their strength and endurance against their struggles, challenges, and that find victory and triumph over their tribulations using their newly found, deepening faith, and trust in Jesus.
