WalkerHouseLLC.com started with a book.
In August 2017, we (Carolyn Hamlett and myself) made public a book we had been working on since earlier that year, “Doctrines of Demons: Exposing Christian Witchcraft.” Initially, we started writing with the intent to explain to a specific and relatively small group of interested people why we had left and dissociated ourselves from a particular organization that claimed to be Christian. However, early into our writing, we realized that the message we had to share was much, much bigger than just one false minister, or one sham of a ministry, or a handful of insiders, or a few hundred fleeced followers. It was an urgent message that reached farther and a message that had much more importance than just us and our unfortunate personal experiences with the people in that organization.
And so, since we wanted (and still want) to reach as many people as possible with our message, and since we were on a time-crunch to get the information out, we chose to make our book available on our joint website, allowing people to freely read our book in a downloadable PDF format, or to read directly on our joint website.
It is still our intention to make the PDF format of “Doctrines of Demons” available to read for free, but since we started getting requests from people to have it in published in hard-copy format, Carolyn and I began thinking in that direction, hoping to find another avenue through which to share the message of our book with as many people as possible, particularly those who call themselves Christians.
Now, as anyone knows who publishes or attempts to get their book published, it’s next to impossible to get a book published in the mainstream without at least a literary agent. And procuring an agent takes time — time that Carolyn and I didn’t and don’t want to waste with trying to find an agent who would try to hook us up with a publishing company … who’s mission and policies we probably wouldn’t agree with anyway … and who would be likely to have the ability to influence the content of our book and subtly change the direction and/or message that is so important for us to share in exactly the way we have shared it.
So we tried less-than-conventional methods, trying to get a couple of other smaller publishers to take on our project, but those efforts fell through. So Carolyn and I decided that we’d just publish the book ourselves! For various personal reasons, Carolyn isn’t able to own and operate a business right now, but I am. So, I started Walker House, LLC as a way to get our book published, and for future book projects as well, and that is how this company was born.
At first I wasn’t very confident in my abilities to own my own company and get a book published. And honestly, I still have days where I’m scared to death that I’m going to just fail and fall flat on my face. And I’m sure I’ll have more days like that in the future. But I’m going to simply try my best, and ask the Heavenly Father to help me and bless my efforts, and that’s about all I can do.
(By the way, as of this writing — December 2018 — our book isn’t published yet, but it’s in the works, and by God’s grace, it will be published soon!) 🙂
In the meantime, I am now in a position where my children are grown and starting to move in their own directions, and although being “mom” is just as important as it was before now, it also takes up less time than it did before. So since I have more time on my hands, I’d like to be able to do something that is a) fun for me; b) helpful to others; and, c) puts a little cash in my dwindling bank account, because costs for operating and maintaining the website that Carolyn and I own (and now this website) have piled up. Therefore, after talking it over with Carolyn, and with the help and encouragement from my husband, we decided that this new business venture to publish our books can also be a way for me to (hopefully) make a little extra cash. After all, I already had a product (my anti-aging face serum) that I had been making and have been using for over a year now, I already have a customer who loves the product and buys it regularly, and I had been throwing around the idea of actually making a business out of it… so then, why not take advantage of this business opportunity and make a few more things for other people who may find them useful, too?
And once Carolyn is able to add a few more things to her plate, too, she’s hoping to make some items that will be for sale in our store, as well, but she’ll cross that bridge when she comes to it, as the saying goes. 🙂
We thank you very much for visiting our website, and we pray you find the products sold here to be helpful and useful to you, body, soul, and spirit.
