Guiding Light is the contemporary and historical women’s fiction line of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas (LPC). The series will launch in 2015. LPC plans to release two new books in the series each quarter.
At Guiding Light we agree that 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. These novels will be 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. The woman or women are the central characters. Nicholas Sparks’ love story, The Notebook, has been mentioned as Women’s Fiction even though the male character plays a major role in the story.
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.
The first lighthouse was built on the island of Pharos in Hellenistic Egypt and the name Pharos is still used as a noun for “lighthouse.” It served as the port’s landmark and has been noted by classical writers as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Lighthouses function as beacons of safety. They are used as symbols of marking danger and revealing safe entry to harbors. The ultimate goal of Guiding Light is to show Jesus as the safety, the wonder, the light of the world.
