MLK

Articulate Communication Publications, SLLC is dedicated to leveling the playing field for #GoIndie authors across the globe. Our objective is to coordinate the "Perfect Storm to Greatness," through the various mediums of publishing, producing, branding, formatting, promoting, marketing, blast campaign reviewing, blogging and editing functions. At our new “Brick and Mortar” facility, we will feature our conference rooms as event centers, for author’s benchmark situations, as needed.

ACPSLLC is a Christian based organization desirous of bringing positivity and innovation to the family-oriented community of Bristow, OK. As small business owners, we wish to boost the economy by enhancing the artistic goals of authors, musicians, entrepreneurs, and performers; to curb delinquency in the community and augment the historic value of Route 66. 

We fell in love with this 30,412 square foot historical site where we will use each square foot to enhance a life. The possibilities of other buildings on Route 66 and other pieces of open land for building a newer more modern facility have also caught our eye. The feasibility of building new vs restoring an albatross is tempting. Each link will take you to that portion of the building we are considering.  But as we move forward we will add the pictures of land where we have considered a newer modern high tech, low drag flagship. 

  • House Museum 
  •  ACPSLLC© Publishing House

We anticipate a soft opening July 2018 and a grand opening by August 2018. By faith, we will use crowdfunding, grassroots funding, and good old-fashioned hard work. We earnestly wish to become the hub, which links Tulsa, Oklahoma and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Route 66.

Risks and challenges

Articulate Communication Publications, SLLC is a boutique publishing company established in April 2015, in Las Vegas, NV. In December 2017, the company made a drastic decision to move to a small town on Route 66 in Bristow, Oklahoma. Because it is a Series Limited Liability Corporation, it allows for multiple entities to grow under one umbrella without any changes.

ACPSLLC is a Christian based organization desirous of bringing positivity and innovation to the family-oriented community of Bristow, OK. As small business owners, we wish to boost the economy by enhancing the artistic goals of authors, musicians, entrepreneurs, and performers; to curb delinquency in the area and augment the historic value of Route 66.

We will accomplish our goals, by restoring a historic building in Bristow, or building a sleek new facility with all the bells and whistles; and extend our services to all within a wide radius, even internationally; we want to put Bristow on the International map. We anticipate a soft opening July 2018 and a grand opening by August 2018. By faith, we will use crowdfunding, grassroots funding, and good old-fashioned hard work. We earnestly wish to become the hub, which links Tulsa, OK and Oklahoma City, OK, on Route 66.

The largest risk/challenge is as we delve into all the historic buildings we find possible albatross type issues. We want to be fair to all sentimentally, but refuse to eat the environmental cost to the detriment of our clients and investors.

We are striving to stay a privately owned company, therefore, keeping our silent partners happy is mandatory. As is being fiscally sound to all who are supporting us in this campaign. Our feasibility study continues.

ACPSLLC agrees with Rieva Lesonsky (https://core.score.org/blog/2015/rieva-lesonsky/best-cities-start-business) who wrote an article for SCORE - “The Best Cities to Start a Business” - where she states, “Tulsa, OK is the #2 American city to start a business.” When you couple that fact, with WalletHub’s article (https://wallethub.com/edu/best-cities-to-start-a-business/2281), which lists Tulsa, OK as #4 and with Bristow, Oklahoma being 32 miles southwest of Tulsa, Oklahoma and 70 mile northeast of Oklahoma City, OK, it becomes a logical place for us. The site also analyzed the startup-friendliness of the 150 most-populated U.S. cities based on a variety of measurements: from the average five-year survival rate of small businesses to the price of office space and the educational level of the local labor force. We are definitely a good fit for Bristow, OK.

Our umbrella will cover the following businesses named in conjunction with our tagline “PERFECT storm to Greatness”:

• The Wave Bookstore
• The Calm Reading Rooms
• The Breeze Event Center
• The Swirl Mailbox & Packaging Center
• The Thunder Print-on-Demand Center
• The Lightning Bolt Game Rooms (adult/children)
• The Tidal Coffee & Smoothie Shoppe
• The Rainbow Reading Room (children’s interactive center)
• The Wind Veggie Food Store
• The Storm Leasing Office & Incubator

The Wave Bookstore

Independent authors will have an even playing field when placing their books on our shelves. The competition of mainstream authors will not exist. Our initial inventory will consist of authors who self-publish, use small or boutique publishers or print-on-demand. We will offer a discount to all who print-on-demand with our agency, we will not turn any author down for this reason. We will screen and coach our authors to hone a perfect specimen for premium catalogs and for placement in additional stores. For authors who choose to print-on-demand with our Agency, we will offer a discount on the printing, on the percentage of sales and on the negotiations with other distribution centers.

The Tidal Coffee & Smoothie Shoppe

In a relaxed atmosphere, you may use our Wi-Fi to study, read and write while enjoying a hot, room temperature or cold beverage. Using a local baker and/or bakeries, we will offer pastries for onsite consumption. You will be able to browse our bookstore and/or join our reading club, in order to: a) receive points off of our drinks; b) earn game room credits and of course c) acquire discounts on books.

The Calm Reading Rooms

Relax in a themed reading room with your favorite beverage, book, and a snack. Choose your theme from the beach, the mountains, or the forest; add your favorite piece of furniture (i.e. hammock, recliner or beach chair). You’re allowed to bring a paperback, your electronic reader or use one of ours. When you leave a review of the book that you have read, you will receive a discount on the next visit. We encourage all to join our book club to receive free hours of reading.

The Sound Audio/Visual Recording Studio

Our audiovisual Room will capture and memorialize all the events hosted in our event centers. It is also open for individual, and group rentals. Specific genres of music, as with our books are welcomed for resale, in The Wave Bookstore. Your original music will set next to accompaniment tracks. Self-produced original works and accompaniment tracks are the only music we will sell in our establishment.

The Rainbow Reading Room

Using technology (i.e. SmartBoards®), to capture the attention of young minds, we will encourage the love for reading in young children. This room is available for individuals, organizations, and schools. Parents will enjoy the luxury of reading or shopping while their little ones are reading, as well.

The Breeze Event Centers

We are targeting readers who want to stalk their fans at various author events and authors who enjoy the challenge of write-offs, conferences and editing seminars. The commercial kitchen is available for caterers, the only thing we do not offer. However, ask for recommendations we have those readily available. Wedding receptions, proms, and other options are available, in these spaces.

The Breeze Event Centers will host monthly themed “open mic” nights, to include but not limited to comedy, music, poetry, rhetoricians, oratorio, banquets, weddings, etc.; each designed to meet our customer’s needs.

The Swirl Mailbox & Packaging Center

The equipment purchased via the turnkey purchase of The Swirl Mailbox & Packaging Center will have ‘Do-It-Yourself’ copy machines; four terminals for onsite computer updates for rent by the minute.

The Thunder Print-on-Demand

ACPSLLC sets itself apart in the Thunder Print-On-Demand (POD) arena in three major areas. 1) The Thunder Print-on-Demand will employ copywriter’s who will guarantee the best formatting for each submission before one page is printed. 2) Our inventory will revolve around our POD clients; however, we will screen books from other sources when they meet our criteria. 3) Authors who choose our premium package will have priority placement and opportunities for featured placement within the store.

The Lightning Bolt Game Rooms
Two game rooms: one for adults and the second for persons under the age of 17 years. The youth game room will be monitored. The rooms are adjoining for family interaction. Membership is encouraged for parental budgeting and restraints. Also, instead of giving away ‘throw-away’ prizes, those winning on any machine will gain points to purchase books, drinks, etc.

The Wind Veggie Food Store

Vegan and vegetarian substitutes: packaged, refrigerated, and frozen foods with a few recipe books for the newbies and experienced alike. The horizon holds possible cooking classes in our state of the art kitchen.

The Perfect Storm Leasing Office & Incubator

Our state of the art offices can accommodate an entrepreneur or a full staff. Our receptionist, secretaries, personal assistants, media managers coupled with the plush furniture and conference rooms make it comfortable for you to concentrate on the business at hand.

House Museum

As we modernize the building, we shall retain any piece of equipment or aged appliance, etc. and will add it to our house museum, along with any pertinent historical memorabilia found in and around Bristow, Oklahoma. Additionally, we shall work hand-in-hand with the Bristow Historical Society.

ACPSLLC©

Our publishing house is here to help any and all aspiring authors to reach his or her goal of becoming a well-known writer. Allow ACPSLLC to give you the edge, about which other authors only dream. We offer you a seamless finish from manuscript to masterpiece. We will encourage you as you write, edit your work, format, print and review your work. We will schedule the first reading of your work, book signing, and/or mixer.

Each aspect of our business is here to enhance the other. In addition, we will cultivate relationships with our neighboring businesses to construct a closer community. By pooling our resources by patronizing within a 30-mile radius our financial stability will endure allowing Bristow to thrive. We are proving this theory by hiring local contractors, who use local resources to reconstruct this historic site. We are restoring as much of the building as we are modernizing it. We are installing two elevators that will make our offices, POD Center and Game Rooms, American Disability Act (ADA) accessible under Title III, while our two wheelchair lifts will make the bookstore and the reading rooms manageable.
