For Readers: Big changes are coming to Caleb and Linda Pirtle.
August 28, 2016
KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR MAJOR NEW CHANGES.
A NEW DAY IS COMING TO VENTURE GALLERIES.
And it is only a month away.
The Website is being designed exclusively to provide a broad range of exciting new opportunities for our two most important and valuable assets:
And our authors.
For four years, we have worked hard to connect readers, writers, and books on Caleb and Linda Pirtle.
Nothing is changing.
We’re only striving to do it better.
BUT ALAS, VENTURE GALLERIES WILL BE GOING DARK DURING THE ENTIRE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER AS OUR DESIGNERS AND MARKETING TEAM AT Y & R PR GO BEHIND THE CURTAINS TO IMPLEMENT THE DRAMATIC CHANGES IN OUR NEW LOOK AS WE LAUNCH AN ENTIRELY NEW AND DIFFERENT PROGRAM.
We haven’t gone away for good.
We’ll be back.
Today, let’s talk about our readers.
What can you expect to find?

The novella is being written for you, the reader, so make sure you help out with the writing of the book.
