You can count the number of seeds in a mango,
 but only God can count the number of mangoes in a seed.
(modified from quote by Karen Jensen)

Do you have a story of a real person who began to pursue their passion or talent as a child? Did he or she have to overcome adversity or obstacles along the way?

Mango Potential books are non-fiction stories of young people finding and pursuing their purpose. The Mango Potential Series is a follow-up to the picture book, Little Mango in a Big World. One of the many takeaways in that book is that all children, regardless of their circumstances, have potential.

Some things to remember:

  • Your main character should be between the ages of 5 – 15 at the onset of the story.
  • Stories must feature real characters and events.
  • Stories featuring diverse characters from the global community are encouraged.
  • Need not be explicitly Christian but must represent Christian values.

Include in Your Proposal:

  • Book Synopsis
  • Manuscript Specifications
  • Author Bio
  • Marketing Plan
  • Three Sample Chapters

We plan to accept two submissions per year in this series.
