Iron Stream Media expands its author resources and portfolio through acquisition

Iron Stream Media is delighted to announce the acquisition of Brookstone Creative Group and Brookstone Publishing Group effective April 19, 2021. This acquisition will bolster J. Westin, the self-publishing arm of Iron Stream Media, as well as provide additional powerhouse resources for authors and speakers, including coaching, promotions, and a full range of publishing services. Both companies were founded upon servant leadership and that will continue under the Iron Stream Media banner.

With this acquisition, Suzanne Kuhn will become Associate Publisher of Iron Stream Media. Suzanne will continue working with the Brookstone Creative Group and Brookstone Publishing Group teams. She is passionate as ever about helping creatives hone their message, create great content, publish books they can be proud of, and one-on-one coaching. Suzanne brings more than thirty years of industry experience including publishing, marketing and retail. For twenty-two years, Suzanne worked closely with her husband in his co-owned independent bookstores. Before launching SuzyQ and subsequently Brookstone Creative Group and Brookstone Publishing, Suzanne worked with New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury. She lives in Virginia.

Ramona Richards, current Associate Publisher, is transitioning toward retirement and will be staying on as part of the editorial team. She is happy to help Iron Stream Media going into this next season. Having worked together sporadically over the years, Suzanne is thrilled for the opportunity to work closely with Ramona.
