We are honored to nominated LaChelle McCormick Johns for a Pushcart Prize

On November 3rd of this year, LaChelle's book "BLACK BEER WHISKEY WISDOM" was released to the public. We were so impressed when Miss Proper brought us the completed book. THIS is a fledgling author? No. This is a seasoned writer. 

And on the first day of release, her book hit #3 on the best seller ranking.

Miss Proper approached us because she couldn't get that one very specific poem out of her head. One special poem called "8 Minutes" and so, today she sent in that story as a nomination for the Pushcart Prize.

Congratulations to LaChelle McCormick Johns on her nomination and on her incredible dedication to her family, friends and craft.



We are honored to nominate Debra Rayor Asplund for a Pushcart Prize

On August 1st of this year, Debra's book "Escaping Ukraine 1920" was released to the public. We were so honored she chose our little rag-tag publishing house to create her family history, but more than that, we loved the stories of each family member, especially Boruch Tzepeniuk aka Grandpa Ben Shipnuck. Miss Proper couldn't get that one story out of her head, and so, today she sent in that story as a nomination for the Pushcart Prize.

Congratulations to Debra Rayor Asplund on the nomination and on her incredible dedication to her family history. 

"Black Beer Whiskey Wisdom" LaChelle McCormick Johns first book debuts at #3!

 It's rare when we are approached by our fearless leader, Miss Proper, with unpublished work and she is beyond excited. 

"This one is going to be fun to watch climb the rankings."

And it did, faster than any of us anticipated. She knew the writing was stunning and we all worked to make sure the format and cover matched the authors vision. Day 1 of its release, "BLACK BEER WHISKEY WISDOM" hit #3 on Amazon's bestseller ranking. That is absolutely incredible. 

We are so happy for LaChelle McCormick Johns and have no doubts that anyone that reads her work will feel her passion and joy, sorrow and triumph.

Congratulations to Deb Rayor Asplund on her first novel Escaping Ukraine 1920

Deb Asplund has written a gripping history of Ukrainian Jewish peasantry who survived, and subsequently thrived, despite being subjected to discrimination by ruling Tsars, to WWI, the Bolshevik Revolution, famine, and a pandemic over 100 years ago. 

Written as a family legacy, the old world Jews of Ukraine undertook huge risks to secure their freedom and prosperity. The timelessness of my Grandparents story, followed throughout the decades, is matched only by the timeliness of today's grinding war between Ukraine and Russia.

The similarities are striking. Order your copy HERE

Tom Turner has a conversation with Jesus...

The first two books the Proper Publishing team did with Tom Turner, he kept mentioning a manuscript he had been working on for decades. He spoke to us about how it was based on an actual event. We kept wondering if we would ever see the completed interior. 

Lo and behold, Tom finally brought us THE manuscript and to say we were excited is a massive understatement. We were all blown away by this book.

Working with Tom is always fun but this book was something special. It had a life of its own, a purpose and we could all feel it, which we talked with Tom about several times. All of us knew this was a special project and we were so proud that Tom trusted us with a manuscript so special. 













If your faith is wavering, or if you're wanting to strengthen your faith, this is a must-read! It's the story of one man getting the opportunity to have a conversation with a deity that he understands is Jesus. He asks questions about faith, about life, about death, and about the world we live in...with Jesus answering each and every one. 

Wondering about the answers to those questions?

It's rare to come in contact with someone who is so brilliant, they leave you feeling as if you need to go back to school IMMEDIATELY. Thank you for keeping us on our toes, Mr. Milhoan. You are a true gentleman. We highly recommend this man's book. As smart as he is...his storytelling capabilities are incredible.
