Compelling Stories, Beautifully Written


Guiding Light is the contemporary women’s fiction line of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas (LPC).

The first requirement of a novel is to entertain the reader. In doing so the story should have a strong action plot, emotional plot, and faith plot. We release novels that are among the best the publishing industry has to offer, written by seasoned authors or beginning writers who exhibit creativity and a working knowledge of the craft.

Guiding Light themes and subjects are deep and serious that take the reader through a plethora of emotions. Though we allow for male points of view, the woman or women are the central characters. Romance, mystery, and other plot elements may be present but must never overshadow the woman or women’s journey/s.

Guiding Light stories may focus on a soft glow, an illumination of heart and soul, a flame of emotion, and/or a light to one’s spiritual journey. Our realistic stories are designed to entertain, encourage, inspire, and enlighten.

Our stories range from 80,000 to 90,000 words.
