I’ve shared the official press release below. The nutshell story is that I now own Write Integrity Press and Pix-N-Pens Publishing. Squee!
It’s been a whirlwind month with the transfer of responsibilities and all of the details that are part of the leadership change. I’m beginning to get my feet under me and am so excited to publish the first few books in the next several days.
Write Integrity Press and Pix-N-Pens Publishing announce a change in leadership. Marji Laine Clubine brings a fresh enthusiasm to the publishing companies along with a vision and strategies for growth and maintaining the high quality readers have come to expect. Tracy Ruckman, founder, will remain as Creative Director for WIP and PNP and will continue as publisher of the subsidy press, TMP Books. “It is our expectation and hearts’ desire that God will continue to use these businesses to bring glory to Himself,” says Ruckman.
With strategic planning, Clubine intends to build on the excellent foundation that has already been laid by the Lord and the companies’ founder. With a remarkable team of authors—talented, godly, and committed to prayer and to one another—potential authors will have built-in mentors and prayer warriors alongside them. New authors can also expect step-by-step guidance and encouragement with each book release. Readers will also benefit as outstanding books become available more often.
Write Integrity Press and Pix-n-Pens Publishing already hold high standards among small presses. With the refocused vision of the new leadership and the support system the team has created, the companies will continue to rise in esteem within the Christian publishing market.
One of the first things I’ve done is create a new website. Check it out – HERE. – and if you’d like to keep up with the going’s on at Write Integrity Press, sign up for our monthly newsletter at the link on the home page.
