Alabama Publishing Company - Blue Water Publications
Bluewater Publications was birthed in North Alabama in 2000; but, like all creations, it was in the making long before the actual birth. When Angela Broyles arrived in Alabama the fall of 1999, she began researching the state's history with her children, discovering new historical details she personally had never heard before. As she began uncovering these fascinating details, she recorded them in a chronological history journal. She soon discovered, if she had to dig this deep to find the historical details that had not been written to appease the political correctness of society, other parents must be struggling to locate accurate materials as well. It was at this time she set out to write an Alabama history study to make sure her children had an accurate account of their state's history. As they say, “The victors write the history books.” It was important to Angela that her children learned the truth, not politically correct lies.
As part of her search for historical truth, Angela contacted Florence, Alabama, city historian, William Lindsey M cDonald, to confirm that his historical account of the area Native Americans would be available if she added the publication as a recommended resource for her state study. When Mr. McDonald revealed to her that his health was failing, and that he would no longer be able to publish Lore of the River – The Chiefs of Long Ago, Angela immediately offered to publish his work. She felt compelled to keep this excellent, well-written history available for everyone to access and enjoy. This was the beginning of a long and happy friendship between Mr. McDonald and Angela.
Of course, as the years have passed, Bluewater Publications has grown from a small local Alabama publishing house to a hometown company with National and International distribution, making use of the most modern marketing techniques available. The genre has expanded to include Genealogy, History, Historical Fiction, Children's Literature, Inspirational Books, and much more. Along with a serious commitment to preserving historical truth, Bluewater Publications maintains the highest quality standard for servicing its authors and readers.
Just one example of this high standard of commitment is author and speaker, Duane Vadron Evans. Duane has published two books through Bluewater Publications and has recently been named “Winner” and “Finalist” in the 2010 International Book Awards. This is just the beginning for this up-and-coming, award-winning author. It is our desire, at Bluewater Publications, to build long-standing relationships with talented writers. A large percentage of the writers we work with have never been published before; but, when you combine the dedication of the Bluewater Publications staff with a motivated and talented writer, award winning authors can and will be created.
