What have you published? If nothing yet, what's your realistic launch date for your first self-published book? Feel free to share a link to the book's website or Amazon page!

I self-published several volumes of poetry before starting my own publishing company back in 1993 ... put out several more when the company was going (we went out of business in 2004), along with a lot of other folks' stuff.

What genre do you prefer?

Reading or writing? I actually gave up writing poetry quite a while back (it was creating a NLP-esque feedback loop of anguish, angst, and ennui, and I just had to walk away from it). I have "gotten into criticism" of late, reading at least 72 non-fiction books a year and cranking out book reviews about them. I have friends encouraging me to do e-book collections of these, which I am considering.

What, if anything, do you write besides books?

As above ... book reviews.


I'm a former publisher, a business that started from my post-college self-publishing. I'm interested in finding out the latest in this niche.
