Newsy Tuesday: #ShopSmall This Saturday for #FiveSibes Books & Support Small Businesses!


This holiday season, think #ShopSmall, and support small businesses and companies! We all know Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fast approaching to kick off the seasonal shopping, but did you know this Saturday, November 26, is "Small Business Saturday" and another great time to do some shopping and support small businesses and hometown companies?! 



I'm very proud of ArcticHouse Publishing, my small home-based-in-the-USA publishing company with a focus on canines and canine healthcare. Here at ArcticHouse, the goal is to help the author who wants to self-publish have a one-stop-shop to create a professional, high-quality book from the cover to the paper stock, editing and proofing, obtaining ISBN and copyright registrations, use of fonts, layout and design, proofing, and printing. Each book is designed with love and attention to detail. All books I work on are carefully edited, designed, and created with the utmost care and printed through my chosen local community printer. Only one book at a time receives my full, undivided attention! With 35+ years in the writing, editing, and publishing field, 19 of those years in the educational sector, I proudly work with a select handful of very talented freelance graphic artists, editors, and designers, who all work and reside in the United States - some even right here in my own beautiful hometown region in the Hudson Valley, New York! And, each one of my own personal books that have been published helps educate others about canines and Canine Epilepsy, as well as having a small donation from each book sale go toward helping dogs in need.

Woo! We love books!

Books are wonderful presents! So this holiday season, when you are going over your gift-giving list, think about one of my books published through my ArcticHouse Publishing, and know you are helping to support a (very) small independently owned and operated business, with donations from my own books, post-production costs, going to help dogs in need. Each of my books has already seen donations go to the designated rescue, fund, or organization! Even though small in size, that is such a thrill! And it could not have been done without, you, my wonderful FiveSibes readers and listeners who purchase the books! And...when you order one of my books, you can be confident that each one is personally hand-packed and shipped by me with care!

  1. Some day I would love to write a children's book about collies. So few children recognize the breed these days.

  4. I did not know that Saturday was Small Business Saturday! As a small business owner I think this is perfect! I wish you all the best with the sales of your books (I love to read too!) and well done by promoting and bringing awareness to Epilepsy in dogs.

  8. Wow, I feel silly because I didn't know you had published so many books and have your own publishing company. That's amazing! I have read "What's Wrong with Gibson", but didn't know about the others. I look forward to reading them all in the future.
