Ready to write and publish your

book to make a global impact?

Welcome to Watersprings Publishing. Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Athena C. Shack, MDiv, Publisher and Book Coach. I help authors manifest dreams of publishing and coach writers into developing marketable, impactful and profitable books.

Although I’ve spent the last 9 years in publishing, I have a combined 30+ years of corporate experience in marketing, advertising and media where I developed my talents. I am author of multiple books, including the scripture writing/prayer journal series, Write. Listen. Pray.™ and designer of inspirational stationery and merchandise. I am an ordained minister of the gospel and international speaker with a passion for the brokenhearted who teaches and proclaims God’s power of redemption and restoration. As a Kingdom-minded, business owner, my mission is to deliver books and resources to the marketplace that refreshes the spirit, renews the mind, and restores the soul.  At the end of the day, I am called ‘momma’ by an artsy young lady and two charming boys, and wife to my amazing husband.
