For Front Edge Publishing, 2020 has been very busy despite the pandemic. Our books are our way of making the world a little better place. In fact, Americans nationwide are reading more books right now than ever before in history. Susan Stitt looks at this year’s colorful array of books—which make perfect holiday gifts.
THIS IS THE FIRST in a series of videos by Michigan State University Journalism Professor Joe Grimm sharing tips for writers, editors, educators and community leaders about how to use book-related media to help shape your message—and send it out into the world to fully take wing.
We are celebrating the ongoing success of the book Changing Our Mind along with thousands of Dr. David Gushee’s readers who have found the book helpful in strengthening the love in their diverse families, congregations and communities.
In the second of two columns about our timeless love for paper books, we report on what is surely the world’s most expensive gift-book offering for the holidays, a 3-volume set from Callaway Arts for the 2020 holiday shopping season. Callaway has a long history of touching off global buzz in the publishing industry. Back in 1992, the company collaborated with Madonna on the R-rated coffee-table book, “Sex.” In sharp contrast, the subject of the 2020 project is sacred: “The Sistine Chapel.”
Over the years, our publishing house has encouraged authors to find comfortable ways to welcome readers online. Many authors choose to do that through resource-rich websites. Working with web designer Michael Thompson, two of our new authors are debuting such inviting and practical homes on the Internet. In this article, we introduce Ken Whitt’s gorgeous new website that invites visitors to look up into the starry night sky with him—and imagine what might be possible.
