I have been a member of the Christian Small Publisher's Association (CSPA) since 2009. During that time I have benefited from CSPA's publishing community and their creativity, marketing, and vast knowledge of the book industry in general.

Steven Plumber of SP Book Design did the interior layout and design both for the paperback and ebook. You can view a sample of my new revised book HERE .
