Helping Writers

Business partners working together at office

Most stories are never read.

Every aspiring writer wants to become a published author – but most don’t.

Sadly, most writers go unpublished, and it’s not because their story isn’t brilliant. It’s because they don’t have the support they need to manage all the work and complexity involved in the publishing process.

Get The Support You Need

To Publish Your


Morning Dove Press is a Christian Publishing House based in Atlantic Canada that helps writers craft and share their stories. As published authors ourselves, we get the struggle. That’s why we guide you step by step through the process with every service you need to publish your work – from start to finish.


We publish fiction and non-fiction for the whole family. We offer traditional and hybrid publishing solutions. Our mission is to provide quality resources for families across Canada that point people back to Jesus Christ.

Book Coaching

A book coach will work with you to brainstorm, plan, and review your writing as you go. This is hands-on support for someone who wants to write a book themselves but needs support to actually see it through.

Hire an Illustrator

Do you have a story for children you want to publish, but no illustrator? We can help! Contact us to see the amazing illustrators we work with at Morning Dove Press, and how they can help bring your story to life!


We offer 4 types of editing: substantive, Stylistic, Copy-editing, and Proofreading. Take advantage of our FREE diagnostic editing. You can contract Morning Dove Press for some or all your editing needs.

Ghost Writing

A ghostwriter is a professional freelance writer who you hire, in order to produce a high-quality written product. It will still be your story, whether it is an autobiography, a memoir, a family history, a how-to business book, or even a novel, just written with professional help.


For those times you need help with the facts. Does your writing project require a review of the existing research? Or maybe you need a report on current statistics related to your book? Experienced researchers here at Morning Dove Press are here to help.


Register to attend monthly workshops for writers! Each month will cover a different topic relevant to writing and offer you tips and strategies for developing your skill.

This Month's Featured Book

Simon Stayed

By Cynthia d'Entremont, Illustrated by Kathryn Cha

In this story of resilience, Simon’s surroundings become a reflection of the loneliness he feels. During a Storm of Despair, Simon prays a simple prayer to make a friend. A new day brings a reminder that seasons change and this hope helps Simon see the opportunity that was already waiting for him.

Simon Stayed is a story of a boy who didn’t feel like he belonged. As he travels to new towns, he learns about who he can turn to during hard times, and the power of perspective. 

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lam 3:22-23
