Ellechor ranked #1 on the Pulse in September

Ellechor Publisihing House is the first business in Intuit’s Love A Local Business grant competition to both rank #1 on The Pulse, the monthly top 10 list of most loved businesses, and to be randomly selected as a winner. 

Owner Rochelle Carter described her reponse to the outpouring of support for her new business, “I’m overwhelmed.  The authors, my friends and family – and their friends and family – made a huge deal about getting out the vote all over Facebook.” She plans to use the grant money to help fund their big launch in January.  If Ellechor wins the Grand Prize grant, she’d like to hire some of the volunteers who have been donating their time and effort to help get the business started.

This was the winning nomination: “I appreciate Ellechor Publishing House and their commitment to producing quality inspirational books that will glorify and honor God, all my best!

A better company could not have been chosen for Intuit's September grant...and I pray the grand prize. Ellechor is on a mission not only to help new authors, but all of their community and the world by providing quality, Christian literature. In one of the most unapproachable industries, they stand out as a beckon of hope for perspective authors, and readers alike!Congrats again Rochelle and the Ellechor staff!
