We feel so honored that Pastor Rhen has entrusted us with publishing this book. It is such a personal story, but at the same time, so many people will be able to benefit from his perspective and experience.
Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2017
Maven Publishing announced recently that it has partnered with Brian H. Rhen, People Development Pastor at Peninsula Covenant Church in Redwood City, California, to publish his book, A Short Walk with Emma.
The book chronicles the life of Rhen’s daughter, Emma Grace, who was diagnosed with a congenital heart condition just days after her birth, and passed away shortly after her second birthday. It also details the powerful practical and spiritual lessons learned by the Rhen family both from Emma herself and from the long grieving process that followed her death.
Rhen wrote the first draft of A Short Walk with Emma almost 15 years ago, soon after Emma’s death, but shared it only with close friends and family. Only recently did he consider publishing the book, realizing the impact his family’s story could have on others who are going through similar trials, and approached Maven Publishing for help in bringing his book from a manuscript to a finished product.
Jessica Dawson, CEO of Maven Publishing said of soon-to-be-released book, “We feel so honored that Pastor Rhen has entrusted us with publishing this book. It is such a personal story, but at the same time, so many people will be able to benefit from his perspective and the things he and his family have learned through the experience of losing a young child.”
Dawson continued, “Even though this book isn’t ‘typical’ of the types of books we publish at Maven Publishing—normally we work with entrepreneurs or other business professionals on books that will help grow their businesses—we wanted to take on this project because we believe it will be a powerful resource for other grieving families. And like the other authors we’ve worked with, Pastor Rhen is a trusted authority in his line of work, with a story to tell.”
The book’s original manuscript will be updated to reflect what has happened in the lives of the Rhen family since the book was first written 15 years ago, and the team from Maven will be collaborating with Rhen to identify parts of the manuscript that need editing or clarification.
