It started out in different parts of the world. One would use the name Saga Press to self publish her own book while the other would use Alainn Epub to self publish hers. Both in other niches of the big wide world of publishing. All the while the third toiling with her own writings from the center of her community hub, in fact the very same one the first shared with the third.
Then, by happen stance, or perhaps not so much but more fate would have it. A call. A singular call for a book cover for once and for all. That call rang out on a Facebook group for all to hear. The second would find the first and the first would bring together the third and second. One became two, two became three.
From the very humble beginnings of one or two books to soon to be over thirty. Alliances and partnerships come and gone and new ones forming even today, oh how they fawn. The three would grow not only as a company but as a sisterhood with brawn.
Tri-JuJu are they and three small but truly fierce – as the saying goes and as people would remark – a set of triplets powerful as an arc so electric.
Now, as you can see – an LLC. Three beautiful and gracious women, independent and driven. They will strive for the best, never any less. Challenges and trials, nothing too small or far away in miles. These three women, not giving up is a given.
…And then some.
I remember the day I saw the post for a cover. Embracing Heathenry. I figured, why not help a fellow weaver of stories out. Turns out we have quite a bit in common. From the toils and strains of being a woman in an entrepreneurial setting to women with our own personal battles both from our past and in the present – babies, bottles, families, businesses, writing, publishing. We found ourselves, revolving around all of that and each other.
Then I met Sarah, Larisa being the go between and introductory person between us. The moment I heard her voice with Larisa’s on that phone call I knew we were a force to be reckoned with, a powerhouse together – Tri-JuJu (I can hear them both giggling at that). We’ve co-authored, we’ve created, and helped others create. We are the three who blaze trails instead of follow set paths. Between Larisa and Sarah I don’t think I could have asked for better partners, friends, family…and ultimately sisters.
It grew, like one of our children, it grew. From one to two to three. From one book to …well you’ll have to wait to see how many (let’s just say …we grew exponentially fast across many genres). Now it’s Three Little Sisters (now LLC) … We slew a giant (project), learned new swordsmanship (skills), won battles (went to bat for other authors), and are winning the war (we are a publishing house, small but fierce).
I went from cover artist, to executive assistant and now with great honor I am now Executive Coordinator. Not that titles matter to us three very much but you know the business world asks for them and we aren’t allowed to use princess unicorn catcher so…right, Exec Coordinator it is.
So, I raise my glass and bid thee, my fair sisters, many more years, no, decades of crazy conversations, gut searing belly laughs, shoulders to lean on when the waters get murky and so much more. To the family you can pick, I say here, here!
