Green Living Monthly, a Tum Tum, Wash.-based magazine, now is owned by Green Living Publications LLC, a company established by the magazine's editor, Chris Ellis.
The magazine formerly was owned and published by Lake Spokane Media LLC, based in Nine Mile Falls, at 5919 Highway 291, and Ellis says that venture's owner, Dana Michie, transferred Green Living's publishing rights to her. No exchange of money occurred in that transaction, which took place early last month, Ellis says.
The 16-page magazine prints articles on topics such as natural health practices, recycling, green energy, and the local economy, she says. Most of its content is written by local business owners or experts who are familiar with environmentally-conscious living practices, she adds.
To allow for a smooth transition of ownership, Ellis says Green Living Monthly won't publish this month, but will resume in March. She's now operating the publication out of her home in Tum Tum, and says she recently contracted with a local graphic designer, Carine Mossay, to provide those services and to serve as its marketing manager.
Ellis had been contracted since last May with Lake Spokane Media as the magazine's editor and its sole ad sales representative. The first issue of the magazine was released last August, she adds.
Ellis says she plans to add more written content to the magazine, and hopes to sell more advertising to environmentally-minded businesses in the Inland Northwest.
In addition, she says she hopes to expand the circulation of the free publication to Spokane Valley, Post Falls, Coeur d'Alene, and Sandpoint.
When it was under the ownership of Lake Spokane Media, Ellis says the magazine circulated about 5,000 copies at roughly 200 locations in Spokane and other surrounding communities in Eastern Washington.
Lake Spokane Media publishes The Outpost, a weekly community newspaper that serves several communities and towns in southern Stevens County and northern Spokane County.
