you make lemonade, dump it on your publisher’s head, and move forward onto a new prosperous journey, blessed by God!

​Ok, I really would not dump the lemonade on someone’s head.  It would be a total waste of good lemonade.

​Why would I want to dump lemonade on my publisher’s head anyway? Well read on…

 Around six weeks ago, I was informed that my publishers were arrested by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office. The same publisher I chose years ago because they said they were a “Christian Publishing Company.” And I have to admit that over the years they DID NOT resemble Christians in any way, shape, or form.  As a matter-of-fact Tate publishing was the polar opposite of anything to do with Christ.

 Lessons learned…

Ask God first.

Don’t believe the words of mere men, research their actions.

 So, now I must re-vamp my “The Tent Maker” book, blogs, & websites.  And that is exactly what I am doing at this time.  The book will have a new publisher called “Amelia West Publications” and that is me.  The blogs and websites will represent “The Tent Maker” book along with the businesses I have recently begun.  Because sometimes in life, you have to shake up your vision with God’s guidance.

 You know, I have always felt like a chameleon with the ability to adapt to situations and environments.  And I love color, life, change, and God!  Maybe at 55, God decided it was time for renewal and for me to brush some of those cobwebs stuck between my ears out. God works in mysterious and wondrous ways, thankfully! I still believe God has a great sense of humor. Why else would He put up with me?

​Below are my new, revamped and in the works, websites and blogs.
