Time Tested Page Turners

Publishing in print is a time honored and revered tradition - even in this digital world. In fact, contrary to early predictions, small book stores are  once again on the rise. And people are rediscovering the the comfort of turning the pages of a book.

 

I've helped people make books they've written and books they've dreamed of, using popular Print on Demand software. It's an affordable and customizable way to publish your book.

 

Memoirs, family stories, novels, photo essays - the content is only limited to the imagination. If you picture a special  book in your life, Let's Talk!

 

 

Above are a few of the books I've created and helped to publish.

And, what better place to share my own writing! Below are links to some books I have written and designed, and to short stories I intend to soon turn into a book.

 

Because I was a journalist and writer for my professional career, I longed to write for the sheer pleasure of story telling. I wrote on airplanes, in hotels and restaurants as I traveled in pursuit of material for my day-jobs in print and electronic journalism. Thus I understand the drive some people have tell their stories and see them in print.

 

I am thrilled to help others hold the book of their dreams in their hands and share them with the world. a few of my own books are below.

"The Cat-Napping Caper" is my fast-paced mystery book for young readers that touches on respecting others and delivers a healthy anti-bullying message.

"Clan MacLaren, Ancient origins to modern times," is an easy to read account of Scottish history and the legends and lore of the Clan. It's written for American readers who have only basic knowledge of the long history of Scottish struggles.
