Ravencrest Publishing Inc
A small publishing company on a mission, making a difference one book at a time. Giving voice to thought provoking authors!
In 2006, Cubbie Blue Publishing created the imprint Ravencrest Publishing. Ravencrest Publishing was created to give a voice to thought provoking authors and deliver important works inspired by native wisdom and traditions.
Ravencrest’s first titles were by CALVIN HELIN, a bestselling multi-award winning author, international speaker, entrepreneur, lawyer, and activist for self-reliance. It’s an unlikely success story, from someone with an impoverished childhood, growing up in a remote Native American village. The son of a hereditary chief, Helin’s first book, Dances with Dependency: Out of Poverty through Self-Reliance, was based on his own experiences, and written to help eradicate the kind of poverty he faced as a child. A seven-time bestseller, Helin’s landmark guide provided a blueprint to help Native American populations break free from “the welfare trap” of government dependence. During his extensive research for Dances with Dependency, Helin learned that the corrosive effects of economic dependency are not limited to the poor, but apply to other social classes, businesses and governments. His second book, The Economic Dependency Trap: Breaking Free to Self-Reliance, Helin speaks to what he calls “the most deceptive pandemic of the 21st Century,” providing a plan for transforming economic dependency into healthier outcomes across all echelons of society – from minority groups, to middle class Americans. This book has won the Gold Medal in the IPPY Awards (Self-Help), and was a finalist in the COVR Visionary Awards (General Interest/Self-Help), Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
Ravencrest is proud to include the works of Randa Handler namely The Boy Who Spoke To God which fittingly includes the Mayan. A young Greek boy, in this folk tale, helps feuding Greek, Mayan, Zulu and Chinese tribes find peace & harmony via his dreams of a perfect God. Ravencrest will also release in hardcover Handler’s fun animal tale, If I Were King and her much talked about early reader series. Cubbie Blue & His Dog Dot, Book One.
Randa Handler is an international journalist, publicist, and publisher. In 2003, Handler’s publishing company successfully launched an educational series of children’s books that are used as ‘lesson plans’ by elementary school teachers. Handler is currently dedicated to writing and illustrating children’s books with multiracial characters that instill a tolerance and love of diversity.
We discovered the perfect author to exemplify our mission in Calvin Helin. Drawing lessons of success from his native history; Helin delivers a message of self-reliance as a way out of poverty, undeterred and unafraid of being politically incorrect. Therefore, it is befitting to launch our new Ravencrest imprint with his Dances’ series.
Calvin’s father and grandmother, both hereditary Tsimshian Nation Tribal Leaders, sent him on a quest when he was twelve years old with the sole purpose of making a difference – for the better – in the lives of those less fortunate. This quest, those many years ago, along with his advocacy work of self-reliance on behalf of indigenous nations led to Calvin’s desire to inspire and educate by writing the Dances’ series of books.
We are launching this exciting new series with Dances with Dependency, Out of Poverty through Self-Reliance, which will effectively assist the underprivileged of all nations to find their own path to happiness and wealth through self-reliance.
Ravencrest Publishing will continue to introduce titles of wisdom and pioneer ideas by giving voice to literary works focusing on indigenous life and art, with the single-minded purpose of inspiring and educating. In the process we’ve made a commitment to producing books with environmental mindfulness. Whenever possible, we use recycled material and try to promote an educational and green solution. We hope to demonstrate that any business can help safe-keep the planet for our children. See Why Calvin Helin’s self help books are changing so many lives!
