“Waterfall Press non-fiction will aim to provide spiritual refreshment and inspiration to today’s Christian reader, while fiction will include stories in the romance, mystery, and suspense genres,” Amazon said in a press release.

As pointed out by NPR, Christian publishing is one of the most lucrative branches in the market today.

“It's a popular industry right now, especially among the evangelical line,” Win Bassett, a seminarian and writer at the Yale Divinity School, told NPR.
