Bee & Moon:
Graphic design artist L.K. Glover and author Katie MacAlister were brought together by a love of writing, and have remained friends for almost twenty years. They share a passion for crafting, deep and abiding love of chocolate, and an appreciation for all things fun, whimsical (and perhaps a bit snarky). In 2020 they formed Bee & Moon as their brand for their design projects. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Beginnings are beautiful . . .
But endings are hard. As of October 10, 2020, after 13 successful years in business, Ninth Moon will be closing its doors. The decision was difficult. After all, how do you say goodbye? All of my clients have been a joy to work with.
I know this year has been rough on the publishing industry. Colleagues have lost jobs, print shops have closed, book contracts voided, conferences and reader events shut down, publishing dates postponed. My heart hurts for everyone impacted . . . but I know you, the artists, will prevail. I know you will keep creating, because that’s what you were born to do. It’s your stories, after all, that get the rest of us through the hard times, that help us see the light at the edge of the forest. For that, thank you.
And thank you for letting me be a part of your creative journey (if even just a small part). I’ve enjoyed watching your stories come to life, your books come to market, and your careers grow. I’m not sure what I’ll be doing next. There is some busy work in getting things wrapped up, and then who knows? I look forward to this next chapter in my life, to my next great adventure.
After all, beginnings are beautiful . . .
