Founder Becky Minor’s original vision, before the idea for Realm Makers was conceived, was of a co-op of Christian authors taking books to conventions and festivals where readers congregate, called the Faith and Fantasy Alliance. Becky hoped to help authors collaborate to promote their books. One of the chief challenges new authors face in today’s market is discoverability. Bowker (the folks who sell ISBNs) reported about 625,000 independently published books going to market in 2015, and that doesn’t even account for books released through traditional publishing. It’s no wonder it’s so hard for authors to find readers “in the wild”–readers who aren’t a part of their immediate friends-and-family network.
