Publisher info

The publishing world is changing. More and more people are taking advantage of the tremendous opportunities that are being made available through e-publishing and print on demand. It is revolutionizing the field of independent publishing. There are more options available to help authors get their books and stories into the hands of readers.

My wife, Amanda, and I established Founders House Publishing LLC in November 2009. It was a beginning of a journey, and one that represented the realization of a dream that I had long held. I wanted to create, design, and publish stories -- not just my own, but others as well. Indie publishing is a great vehicle for getting books out there. It is my hope that Founders House Publishing will be another means to achieve that end.
