Just Keep Writing, Just Keep Writing

Whenever I tell the story of how PeKu Publications began, I share three of my passions: cooking, editing, and writing.  These still are three things which I enjoy very much.  Cooking is integral to my life.  It is one of my favorite ways to give of myself to others, whether it be by inviting someone for dinner, making special treats for my children, or planning a weeknight meal.  I adore thinking about and working with food.  Editing is almost a hobby for me.  Whether reading road signs while driving, reviewing a menu at a restaurant, or any

It’s a Month of Anniversaries

I'm thinking that I should send a link of this week's column to my husband, a kind reminder that we have a special date approaching at the end of the month.  Even though our anniversary isn't a focus of this column, it might help him remember to keep a certain date in late July open. . .

Our wedding anniversary aside, July is a month filled with anniversaries.  Of course, as I wrote last week, PeKu just celebrated its sixth birthday.  As someone mentioned to me, we've left preschool and are moving onto the big world of elementary

We Are 6!

Although we didn't make a lot of noise about it, PeKu Publications turned six last Tuesday.  I didn't write about it last for two reasons.  One, I wanted to pay tribute to the two long-term writers that have moved on to other adventures.  Two, it was still June, and I wanted to wait for July to arrive before discussing our birthday.

So, here we are six years after I changed careers and built this ever-growing business.  Over the past year we have seen changes, as always.  A few highlights from the past 365 days:

  • We now publish three video

More Moving On

We have had several months of change at PeKu.  From adding new writers and a marketing coordinator to the resignation of long-term writers.  As I noted in early May, my first two official PeKu writers both left to further their education and career.  In May and June, I accepted the resignation of two other long-term writers.  As I type this, I realize that it sounds like people are abandoning the PeKu ship, but rather each of these is someone who is changing his life trajectory.

John Frazzetta began writing for PeKu in June 2008.  A single

Meet the Team- R. Carnavale

R. Carnavale joined the PeKu writing team in April 2012. Since that time, this writer has shown a natural ability to write about many topics.  Covering everything from gaming to fashion to travel and much more, R.

Working Together

I built PeKu's team on a completely virtual basis.  My designer and engineer are in Europe.  My editors are in the US and Canada.  My writers are distributed among a few continents. As I have hired new team members, location never mattered.

Even though PeKu is headquartered in Manchester, New Hampshire, coming to the office never was a requirement.  The only thing that mattered was that you did your job well and were punctual.   We use collaborative software that keeps team members on the same page.  Working with my editorial team, we hold monthly meetings utilizing an online
