1. I’m so excited to see where Enclave goes!  I’ve heard people say that they aren’t releasing much, but 13 books in 9 months seems like a lot to me when you compare it to other Christian presses’ SFF output.  Are any other Christian presses putting out that much spec fic yearly?

    I don’t think you can get evangelists by being aggressively safe. I think that’s really the only problem-Enclave feels really safe with those 13 releases, sticking to established,YA-level fiction, reprints,  and genres. Not that they are bad, and not that they need to be edgy or graphic. But they need to draw attention.

    I think a step in the right direction was John Otte’s The Hive cover. It’s of a pregnant woman with a cybernetic arm, and it makes you interested in what the story will be like. You got to give us hooks to evangelize about, or do things that draw notice.

What do you think?
