GEORGETOWN, Del., Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Candace F. (Candy) Abbott is recognized by Continental Who's Who as a Pinnacle Professional in the field of Publishing.
Candy is the founder of Fruitbearer Publishing, LLC. Home to an array of Christian authors and their inspirational works, Fruitbearer Publishing is rooted in Galatians 5:22-25, demonstrating the Fruit of the Spirit and keeping in step with the Spirit.
For more than two decades, Candy has reached out to as many women as possible through her books while managing Fruitbearer Publishing, LLC. Her first book, Fruitbearer: What Can I Do for You, Lord? served as a springboard for her publishing company.
"My role is everything from chief cook and bottle washer to problem solver, counselor, and visionary," Candy said. "For years, Fruitbearer was a one-person company and I did most everything myself with the occasional help of freelance editors. Now, my greatest role is to oversee operations, serving as coordinator to keep the projects on track, but because I enjoy graphic design, I still do a lot of hands-on work with interior and cover design."
She claims that her greatest professional inspiration is the author Catherine Marshall and her book, The Helper, which led to an important spiritual experience for Candy and kick-started her career as a writer. Additional inspirations include her mentors Marlene Bagnull and Nancy Rue.
To keep abreast of the latest in the industry, Candy remains an active member of the Independent Book Publishers Association, Christian Small Publishers Association, and International Women's Association.
Her advice to anyone starting out in the industry would be, "Know your limits. Go to the source when you have questions, and get advice from the experts. Join professional organizations. Attend writer's conferences, sign up for classes and workshops, and make lasting friendships as part of the process."
Perfect Misfits, featuring Fruitbearer books, recently opened at 22440 Lewes Georgetown Highway in Georgetown, Delaware 19947. In addition to Christian books, the owner, Elizabeth Boerner (also Fruitbearer's publicist) will feature workshops, pre-loved furniture, and an art gallery.
In the future, Candy hopes Fruitbearer books will be well known as books of integrity across the country and around the world. "My dream would be for Fruitbearer titles to start showing up in little boutiques all around the country so people will delight in discovering our quality authors and their inspirational books in surprising places," she said.
Her ministry, Mothers with a Mission, offers "Real Hope, Real Truth, for Real Moms" through a blog and other resources. She also founded and directs Delmarva Christian Writers' Fellowship. Noting her interpersonal skills as her greatest strength, Candy believes in being faithful and supportive of others.
When she isn't working, Candy spends time caring for her husband, who has Alzheimer's disease, and enjoying her three children and four grandchildren.
