We believe we are producing beautiful, wholesome children's books and parenting materials that teach ethical and moral values necessary in today's world.  Give us a try, and tell us what you think!



The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church....a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...we are in charge of our attitudes.”

MJChanacapublishing : OUR STORY

It’s been an incredible twelve months since Jane and I embarked on our journey with

MJChanacapublishing LLC. With the public's unwavering support, we’ve achieved a remarkable milestone of

producing eight books during this past year. Among these, four belong to our Family Values Series, and

four to our Super Student Series (with two more ready for publication). We’re thrilled to share that each of

these books is available in ebook, paperback, hardcover, and audio formats. We want to express our

heartfelt gratitude to all of you for not only listening to our ideas but also for assisting us in crafting

wholesome and captivating books for children and their parents.

This project began during the challenging COVID period when we found ourselves confined to our

homes, often with the wonderful presence of my wife, Jane’s mom, Clara Gredlein, who is an impressive

95-year-old. Many of you have inquired about the inspiration behind our project, asking why we chose to

embark on this journey. The answer is simple: we were fueled by a burning desire to share the enchanting

stories and incredible adventures we’ve had with our children and grandchildren, especially the

unforgettable moments involving various pets in both exciting and humorous situations. We had the time

and resources to learn the intricacies of book production, and we were determined to create books that not

only radiated wholesomeness and beauty but also instilled ethical and moral values, reflecting our faith in

God and the blessings we’ve received. This endeavor has demanded extensive research, countless

discussions, and the unwavering support of our families, friends, and many of you. We embarked on this

journey with no prior knowledge of ISBNs, illustrators, email lists, KDP, Amazon, websites, Facebook,

Instagram, or the various software tools necessary for book production. Our learning journey continues,

and we’re grateful for your patience and support every step of the way.

As we move forward, we plan to dedicate the remainder of this year and early spring to further educating

ourselves about this industry and exploring effective marketing strategies. While we have seven more

books ready to go in terms of text, we’ve decided to hold off on publishing new titles until the spring of

2024. We have a Coloring book called “Color Your Own Story Books” 8.5 x 11 coming this spring made

with the sketches of our first four books.

Also, a Family Values Storybook Collection is being produced called, “Humor & Heart”. It will be a

collection of the first four books in larger 8.5 X 11 size paperback and Hardcover so it can be read to

groups. We are also doing our fifth Family Series book, “A Kitty Named Cricket” by Joel Chanaca our

son. We are now working with an illustrator from Pakistan It is looking so beautiful! Our goal is to not

only get our initial books out there but also delve into marketing strategies and establish local and

regional connections. I’m currently involved in a local authors group, actively participating in school

visits, author shares, fairs, and book talks here in the Myrtle Beach area.

Once again, we extend our deepest gratitude for your unwavering support and assistance on this incredible

journey. Your belief in us and our vision means the world. May God bless you all abundantly. John and Jane
