Hal-Melanie-SugarLoaf-LargeI know Hal & Melanie through one of their sons, Matthew. The entire Young family is such a blessing!

It’s difficult to share all that the Youngs do in a single post; they are one busy family!

Hal & Melanie are best known for their first book, Raising Real Men; they run a thriving ministry by the same name.

Raising-Real-Men-Cover3rdPrinting-682x1024The Youngs formed an entire publishing company, Great Waters Press, out of their self-publishing venture and have since acquired several other authors. I’m looking forward to exploring a few titles in their collection.

Melanie has been gracious enough to answer several of my newbie self-pub author questions. Though I am still very much a newcomer, I believe I’ve avoided several fatal mistakes thanks to her coaching.

    Thanks so much, Victoria! We love to see new authors get started. There’s never been a better time for authors to get their books directly to their readers. Can’t wait to see what happens with Re’and!

      I so agree! Certainly a case of the rising tide lifting all ships. Thrilled for your upcoming book!
