Blue Lily Publishing would like you to meet some of our wonderful staff. Without these talented individuals we would not be all that we are. They really make up the backbone of Blue Lily. 

 

 

Meet Samantha, she is one of our amazing cover designers. She is so very talented and we love having her as a part of our team.    A word from Sami:   I first got into book cover design when my father expressed interest in writing his own book. I did a lot of research on different programs to use, learning the tricks and tools of the trade. After 2 years of practice and frustration, with a lot of hope and prayer, I launched my own website. Since then I have had a steady stream of regulars that I love to work with!    I currently reside in Belleville, MI with my husband of 12 years, 2 wonderful children and our 2 cats Crixus and Phoebe. They all make my life filled to the brim with love and laughs! They constantly challenge me to be a better mother, wife, and person. I am so thankful to God for giving them to me.    A long with cover design I enjoy reading, photography and am currently writing my first book!

Meet Miss Glenda, one of our Editors. With out our editors we would be a sinking ship. They truly help to set us apart with their skills.    A word from Miss Glenda:   I was born in Mt. Pleasant, IA; finished high school in LaBelle, MO; earned my Bachelor of Arts in English with a French minor at Ouachita Baptist University, Arkadelphia, AR; and received my Master of Arts in Education from Truman University, Kirksville, MO. I have taught English and French in Missouri and Arkansas at all levels from junior high to college. I currently work at University of Arkansas -- Cossatot, Ashdown, AR campus in the testing center. I am married to Thomas Franklin; we share his daughter, a granddaughter, and three dogs. I wrote Sundayschool literature for the Baptist Publishing House for about twenty years and have more recently edited two books of poetry and several other books. Interests include travelling and playing the piano and violin at church and at a local senior center.      I enjoy editing because I love reading what other folks write. I am not creative but think it is fun to make writing suitable for publication. Helping writers gives me joy.

CCO - Chief Creative Officer  Mary May is one talented woman. She not only writes for Blue Lily delivering fantastic novels she is also the CCO. She absolutely has a creative touch like no other. She helps give ideas for covers, and helps to create marketing material. We would be pretty dull with out her.

CEO- Chief Executive Officer  Shelli Goins CEO of Blue Lily Publishing. Shelli also writes as Kacy Hart.  A word from our CEO:  I self published my first book in 2015, I found out the hard way it is not very easy to get your work out there and in the hands of readers. I also found out the hard way there are people out there that will make a lot of promises, expect quite a bit of money but never deliver on the promises. With that in mind Blue Lily Publishing was created. I set out to learn everything I possibly could about the publishing and marketing world. My main goal is to help authors get their books ready to go before the readers, and then to help get the readers and authors connected. A great book will never reach its full potential until it makes it into the reader's hands. I love connecting to new authors, and I read every manuscript that comes to us. I still write my own novels as well.
