Welcome to The Arc!
“But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking.” -Mitch Albom
What inspires you? A person? Music? Art? Your dog? Your mom? The great outdoors?
For us, it’s the soul-reaching power of a good story. This is why we started The Arc.
The Arc is not just a blog; it’s a home for great stories, deep thoughts, and touching revelations and insights on faith, literature, and lifestyle. Here you’ll find blog posts, book excerpts, interesting links, videos, podcasts, and more to fill your weekly reading list.
This site is also the home of The Arc podcast, a discussion and interview forum where we talk with publishing professionals, chat with authors about their books, and provide other lively interaction. Some of our favorite episodes can be found here – click here.
“But wait!” you may be saying. “What is up with that name? What does it mean?” “Arc” can mean so many things in the world of stories or publishing. You have story arcs, which are the unfolding of story elements throughout a book. There are advanced reader copies called ARCs, which are early releases of a book for influencers, endorsers, or the press. Plus don’t forget Noah’s Ark. It’s not related—but what a great story from the Bible! And now there’s The Arc website, this one, which we hope will become synonymous with great stories and meaningful connections.
Kick-off your shoes, settle in, and get ready to read.
Here are a few articles to get you started:
