Broadstreet-webBroadStreet Publishing has announced its partnership with U.K.-based Authentic Media, a division of Koorong, a Christian retailing and distribution company based in Australia. 

The newly formed BroadStreet Publishing Group is led by Carlton Garborg, former president of Summerside Press and Ellie Claire, along with Jerry Bloom of Publisher’s Factory Outlet and Paul Bootes of Authentic Media. The company’s focus is to create meaningful, inspirational products that share God’s truth with quality, beauty and creativity. BroadStreet will publish nonfiction, fiction, a new Bible translation as well as a line of content-driven journals under its Belle City Gifts imprint.

“The heart of BroadStreet is to tell great stories that will bring people closer to Jesus and to present messages of truth through beautifully designed products,” Garborg said. “It’s been a joy to see this venture take shape with the partnership of Jerry and Paul. The blend of our collective experience in packaging, sales, distribution and retail gives BroadStreet a solid foundation to build upon.”

Paul Bootes, managing director of Koorong, said: “I’m delighted that Authentic is involved as a key partner in BroadStreet Publishing. Carlton Garborg and Jerry Bloom are industry veterans and have assembled a talented and experienced team. BroadStreet is destined to be a significant force in Christian publishing.”

Fall titles from BroadStreet include Falling Into Heaven, Bloodline and Mountain Man. Falling Into Heaven by Mickey Robinson (September) is a skydiver’s account of a fiery plane crash, journey to heaven and miraculous healing.

Bloodline, by John Turnipseed with Cecil Murphey (October), tells the story of hope, redemption and transformation of a gang leader to one of the nation’s most respected pioneers of community restoration.

Mountain Man (November) by a regular on A&E’s Duck Dynasty tells the story of “Mountain Man” and offers his secrets to keeping a "slow profile."

Additionally, BroadStreet (BroadStreetPublishing.com) is developing The Passion Translation (ThePassionTranslation.com), a new Bible translation from Dr. Brian Simmons. Simmons originally published several single books of the Bible, selling 50,000 copies in 2012 and 100,000 copies in 2013. BroadStreet will be releasing seven books, including simultaneous e-book editions, in October. The full New Testament will be completed by 2017, and the entire Bible is expected to be out in eight years.
