It's always a privilege when one client recommends another or when a client is inspired by a website that IAMTEEJAY has created. With new client and author, Alan Louis Kishbaugh, both those things happened. Alan is the husband of long-time client Stella Resnick and was looking to announce his new book on an author website much like the one I had already built for author Carole Armour-Greenbuam and her debut book, The Forever Deal.
In addition to creating a book launch website for Alan's new book Deep Waters, I also set up all his social media profiles: Facebook, Twitter, GoodReads, The Writing Room and the Writer's Cafe. This ensures that there would be one look and feel for Alan and his book on all platforms.
The University of New Mexico Press will be releasing Deep Waters, Alan's literary memoir of his thirty-year friendship with southwestern writer, Frank Waters in April 2017. It is already available on Kindle as an eBook.This compilation of letters between Alan Louis Kishbaugh and Frank Waters will introduce readers to the scope and breadth of Waters’s work about the Indians of Mexico and the southwestern United States. "In their complex ceremonies and creation myths he saw a deeply religious people, close to the land, whose church is Mother Earth. They humbly and respectfully say their prayers for the earth itself—for its healing and fecundity—and for all its children. In the pueblos of Hopi, Taos, and Santa Ana and, in fact, among all native peoples, they include prayers for their White Brothers. They see that we are all connected and Frank Waters wrote of this, carrying the message to the larger, so-called rational world." Order your copy today!

Alan says in his preface to the book, "It is an arguable assertion that books change lives, but I believe they do. Everything that we experience, reject, or digest has its effect on us, be it seen or unseen."
