These past few months have been a whirlwind of activity. In fall of 2015, I made the earth-shaking decision to do something totally and insanely crazy—start my own publishing company.
I will be the first to admit that I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Though the process was about as clouded as mud to me, I felt the calling in my heart as clear as day. Thus, I began the arduous process of teaching an old dog (i.e. me) a lot of new tricks. By a lot, I mean a lot.
I will be the first to tell you that it hasn’t been easy. Life has a way of getting out of control when I turn my back for even a moment, and some days left me gasping desperately for a breath of air above the chaos and, more commonly, beating my head on the wall.
Yet, slowly but surely I began to seize the information I was attempting to cram into my thick head and actually began to comprehend it. No small miracle, I assure you! As the days grew shorter, my knowledge grew exponentially.
And for the first time in a long time, I knew that this was what I was meant to do. I was born to do two things: Be a farm girl and write/publish books. I can honestly say that I am blessed to be doing exactly that.
Thus, in January of 2016, AGF Publishing was born, where books are the story of our lives! I still have many things to learn, but I am extremely proud of the tremendous obstacles I have overcome and the amazing strides I have taken in the last few months. I am also forever grateful to my supportive husband and children who are the best cheerleaders a girl could ask for. Without them, none of this could be possible.
It is with great pleasure and with no small amount of blood, sweat, and tears that I announce to you today that on February 8, 2016, AGF Publishing will release the first two of what will hopefully represent a long line of quality books for your reading enjoyment.
Only one question remains. Who’s ready to read?
