Weston Publishing Group, Inc. is home to Green Cottage Publishing, Red Cock Music, and Tortoise Records.
Green Cottage Publishing:
Green Cottage Publishing was opened in 2010 as a separate arm to handle the hard copy and ebook publications of the Corporation.
Red Cock Music:
2007, Weston Publishing Company's mission was to publish softback books,
and ebook publications, mostly dealing with fictional novels and short
stories. Then, in the early part of 2008, WPG's board of directors decided to
inquire about the rights to Red Cock Music publishing company. Red Cock
had been inactive since the death of the owner in 1992, and a catalog of
one hundred songs was sitting dormant. A deal was made, and, with the
purchase of Red Cock Music, Weston Publishing Group was born. The
Company was incorporated in August of 2008.
AnAman Music is the christian music publishing arm of Weston Publishing Group, Inc.
Weston Publishing Group, Inc. now owned a music publishing company, but the company quickly learned that simply owning the rights to a song didn't guarantee having it recorded. The idea of starting a record label was tossed around. Several concepts for a name and a design were being discussed when the CEO of Weston Publishing Group walked in, and said, "Why don't you just approach the executor of the estate that had Red Cock Music. They also owned a record label. Tortoise Records. Tortoise had records and CD's released. The label has a history!"
"Great idea!" we all shouted. (She is the CEO after all.)
Following up on that great idea a deal was struck, and Tortoise Records joined the Weston Publishing Group family.
