nSeems that all this writing and self-publishing has got into my brain and now it is saying that I ought to put up my own publishing company. Seems incredible, you say, but then again, according to an article on HuffPost, when you as an author publish your own book, you ARE a publisher. So it stands to reason that I now am a Publisher. I am not like the big 5 or anything but, I am now intent on getting something done. What is it? I intend to publish books that are stories of real people who have traveled through life and weathered the prodigious amounts of storms that have given them that different look about them - a calmness and stolidity that only comes from having wrestled with something tremendous and won the battle not by themselves, but with the aid of God. So - God figures in their lives in a BIG way. I want to see who else is there that has gotten through the tragic and comic and not so exciting and the lovely parts of living on this earth. I want to read their own words of success, not because they achieved power and position, or wealth, nay, none of that. No I want to know how they MET God and walked with Him as they came out of the ashes of their lives. Too dramatic, you say? Well, everyone's story is a great big struggle, unseen by others, but known to the very intimate people that march with them. So, for everyone out there who writes, I am giving you a CHALLENGE. Write write write, don't give up, never ever give up, and tell your story. Send it me at my new publishing company - Marian Musings Publishing. I can help you with this, and I will be a friend through it all.
The company is in its infancy, but I am hiring and recruiting freelance editors. There isn't a BRICK AND MORTAR office. There may not be. My lawyer said that it cuts down on overhead. So, what I plan to do is this: hire these editors wherever they may reside, send them the manuscripts to read and proof and edit, and then we will all have a big party on Skype to discuss these and then we will shepherd the book along towards publication.
Any questions, send me a note via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
