Strategic support and nuts-and-bolts advice for authors, publishers, and content enterprises from a working publisher. I have been working on the front lines of my own publishing companies for 26 years, staying current, experimenting from within—and at the outer edges of—the industry, helping authors meet their financial and life goals from their books, and most importantly—learning how to make a living and stay in the grand, ever-changing world of book publishing. Let me help you. (Please see our Editorial page also for specific content, editing, and production services.)
