As Editor-in-Chief, you might think I love everything about White Rose, and the truth is, you'd be mostly right, but two things stand out in my mind from time-to-time, and today, I was thinking about it and thought I'd share...
Besides being wonderful storytellers, our authors are wonderful people. The support each gives to the company and to one another is, I would guess, the best in the biz...and not just when it pertains to the publishing world, but on a more personal, prayerful level. The camaraderie is amazing. When one needs prayer, many more than two gather in His Name to lift that person. When one has a new release or some other excitement to share, all rejoice. We're a business, but business is made up of people, and people...we have some pretty cool people around here.
We're small--growing, but small.--And, as much as I know we are going to grow, and, of course, am not opposed to it, there's a special something to being small that I hope I don't lose. And that's the fact that I know every author. Maybe I didn't edit their work, but name a title and I can tell you who penned it. The majority of authors have had direct conversations with me, and I like that. I like knowing whose part of this grand adventure in publishing for the Lord. It makes for a great working environment and gives a familial feel to our interaction.
So, there you have it, my ramblings on the day. Let me take this opporunity to say how much I appreciate our authors and staff. Together, I think we make an ab fab team.
