Living Waters Publishing Company is about to be made over.
As I'm sure many of you know, we've been under constant fire lately by various groups. It's unfortunate that there are so many hateful/spiteful people in the world. Not everyone is, which was a blessing for us. When the rumors, lies and deception were at their peak, God sent us some angels in the form of Marion Gropen, Kevin Scott Collier, Terry Kennedy, Pete Masterson, and Jeanette Patindol to bring some corrections.
Sometimes, we have a tendency to blame people when we're attacked. I felt as if someone was attempting to destroy my "baby". I love this industry and I wanted nothing to get in the way of building Living Waters to be a new kind of company, one with a real heart. At any rate, after cooling down and being at the point of initiating a lawsuit I was sure to win, and after spending 3 days in revival, God spoke to my heart. When I went back over the posts that had been forwarded to me, I found an opportunity.
I've never made it a secret that we offer various programs to help people see their work published. We have everything nearly any other publisher has and then some. The business model was perfect. But, and that's a big BUT, we were doing a poor job in communicating who we are! The attack against my character and the viability of the business forced me to take real inventory. Needless to say, after all the tears and prayer, we've decided to change the website. As a matter of a fact, the entire company is getting a makeover.
We've operated the three publishing programs too close together. So, we are hiring a separate Acquisitions Manager for each program. We are going to further separate them by causing our traditional program to have it's own website while our cooperative and self-publishing assistance programs are on another site together.
You will notice these changes beginning soon. By the end of February, our new sites will be fully functional. We've hired a Web Designer for the sake of the sites and keeping them updated. We've also made contact with another distributor who specializes in the children's book market. We are further separating the distribution of children's book to guarantee the success of our chldren's book authors and everyone else.
We extend a huge thank you to the above mentioned people for their honesty, integrity, their fairness, their desire to truly build this industry, their willingness to help others and so forth. We will keep you posted further. Your prayers are appreciated.
