My Journey

Landscapes Magazine

Excited to reflect on my journey, it all began with earning a B.A. in Fine Arts and Teaching, followed by an M.F.A. with the support of a graduate assistantship. This path opened doors to numerous teaching and business opportunities. Along the way, I joined the Denver Potter’s Guild and showcasing my work across the city.

As time progressed, I transitioned into the realm of publishing, leveraging my Graphic Design and Biblical Studies certification to aid authors in crafting and promoting their books. For 15 years, I served as a Graphic Designer for a non-profit organization. Then, a remarkable turn came when a 12-year-old homeschooler-turned-entrepreneur sought my mentorship in launching Pozy Pressings. Her remarkable success story, featured on Fox News and recognized with awards, shifted my course. From this inspiration, Ebookannie, my humble startup, emerged. Embracing this new path with gusto, I cherish the unforeseen twists it brings. Driven by faith, my mission is to empower others in their storytelling endeavors. Stories captivate me, and authors ignite my passion. Storytelling isn't just what I do—it's who I am. Are you prepared to pen your narrative? What story lies ahead for you?

My Story

In 2008, Ebookannie made a humble entrance onto the publishing stage, operating as a Thompson Enterprises, Inc division. As a newcomer to the publishing industry, I immersed myself in the world of YouTube tutorials spending hours studying to master the art of book covers and interior formatting. Those early years were the best moments in my life. Diligently honing my craft, designing books was my passion. All services were freely given, at no charge, and I promised each a real deal, "100% Satisfaction Guaranteed." 

 

Year after year, I extended a ProBono offer to two authors, providing them with complete services free of charge. For many, this was a dream come true, a "Wish of a Lifetime" opportunity. Authors held their books in hand, leafing through the pages, smelling the scent of paper, filling my heart with joy. My greatest joy was offering design services to anyone sincere about publishing, irrespective of their financial circumstances. Collaborating with authors from diverse backgrounds was a privilege, yet one author's journey stood out profoundly - Elmo Ward. After being homeless, he became a world-class athlete, earning a Guinness Book of World Records title. His book, "Mr. Pushups 31,600," marked a monumental achievement and a dream come true. The story of José Serrano Espinoza, an inmate at San Quentin prison, was equally impactful. His narrative was a testament to the power of God redeeming his life.

 

With books rolling off the presses, momentum surged. Each manuscript that crossed my path captured my heart, and every author carried a unique story. My publishing venture flourished through word-of-mouth referrals, and I oversaw many book projects. Sometimes I felt overwhelmed and scared, not knowing if I could finish this business marathon. But I dug deep, prepared thoroughly, and stuck to the plan I had set for myself.

 

I won't lie. There were moments when I felt like quitting. However, the priceless treasures of Ebookannie were always the authors. They were the heartbeat of my business, and leaving was never an option. Today, my love for storytelling and building authentic relationships with my authors continue to drive me forward. Storytelling is the breath of life, and I am grateful for every author who entrusts their stories to Ebookannie. I consistently dedicate the endeavors of this company to the Lord Jesus Christ, serving His people in His way. Rich or poor, known or unknown, first-time self-publisher, Indie or traditional publishing author, we stand ready to listen and assist in their publishing journeys. And this is just the beginning of the tale. The rest of the story...
