Inside MAI Blog: Thoughts on global publishing
"LittWorld is my school in publishing"
I’d like you to meet one of the 180 people coming to LittWorld. She is publisher Eva Kristiaman of Indonesia.
“LittWorld is my school in publishing,” Eva says. “I missed twice since attending LittWorld 2004. I and the other director decided to re-commence the Salt and Light of the World Publishing House last January 2011. I run this publishing as a business with a mission heart, and apply the golden rule (Matthew 7:12) literally in every decision I have made.
“I use a home-base office to minimize the operational cost. I have been working online with our designer and our writers. I don't have any staff. We do per project, and we use a distribution company for marketing to bookstores and book expo in Indonesia. Last month we published the curriculum book volume one, a special order for training 335 Sunday school teachers from 75 churches in Biak Island, and I also shared with each of them the Indonesian version of “May I come in, please..." which had touched their hearts.
“Currently we are preparing to publish the next book, with a new local writer and I am the co-writer. I know that it's time for me to attend LittWorld 2012 training conference.”
Like Eva, many LittWorld participants will come to Kenya eager to learn--the conference being their “school in publishing.” What a privilege for MAI to have even a small part in their publishing journey.
