BLUEGRASS PUBLISHING HISTORY
Bluegrass Publishing Inc. began in 2003 when CEO Linda LaTourelle wrote and self-published her first book from home. The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Word, written specifically for crafters, is a collection of journaling kick-starts and quotes, topically arranged to inspire and compliment any project. This title has sold over 235,000 copies. With a passion for writing and a love for people, LaTourelle began to fulfill the dreams of new authors by publishing their original poetry, quotes and instructional books.
In just over one year, rapid growth and demand for her products and services required a move to a much larger facility. Listening to the voices of clients and consumers, Bluegrass answered through the development of new products, such as transparencies, cd�s and downloadable art. However, books remained the heart of Bluegrass.
Generous servings of southern hospitality have earned Bluegrass Publishing an outstanding reputation within the crafting industry. Through attention to detail, passion for what they do and the ability to find a niche, the company has become recognized as a publishing leader.
Linda�s very first book, The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Word, defined the company�s vision�to give crafters the perfect inspiration for all their projects. Following that vision, Bluegrass authors write words that speak to the hearts and creativity of individuals. As a result, the ever-expanding �Crafter�s Library� is now recognized as a must-have resource for every crafter.
Through commitment to excellence, Bluegrass is pleased to be celebrating five years in the publishing industry. It is with the ultimate gratitude that we say THANK YOU!
But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling like dew upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
