a New Trail
the next step in author empowerment
the past several months, I have received numerous requests
from readers of our E-sheets, as well as from other interested
parties in and out of the publishing world, to provide some
assessment of our progress. After all, we are blazing a trail
into the wilds of new technology as it relates to books, and
people want to know if we are making successful headway. Well,
here it is.
been more than a year since I plunged with both feet (and
wallet) into this great adventure of using technology to
create greater accessibility and awareness of my novels and to
support the future of my new works.
other author with my output - 25 novels published by
major publishers worldwide and spanning three decades -
has ever done this before."
first major step of this process entailed the reacquisition of
nearly all of my publishing and subsidiary rights in North
America and in the thirty foreign languages in which my books
have been translated and published. The next (big) step was to
take all this varied material and digitize it to make it
computer ready for action.
a result of this effort by our publishing company Stonehouse
Press, my novels are once again available for purchase in the
English language in every conceivable format, through eBook
downloads and print-on-demand technology in trade paperback
and hardcover everywhere in the world where books are sold.
books can be purchased through Barnes
and Noble, Amazon,
and through many other online sites, and can be ordered from
brick and mortar bookstores everywhere. Our next thrust will
be to link with sites and stores in other countries to provide
them with our previously translated works. We will begin with
French, German, Spanish and Portuguese languages, then follow
up with our Asian translations.
this enterprise with Stonehouse, many of my books were
out-of-print and could only be found rummaging around The
Strand or at your favorite
used bookstore. Now they are once again selling thousands of
copies a year. Not bad. In addition, the list of places to
find our books and eBooks keeps getting bigger. Stonehouse
eBooks are now being sold on MobiPocket.com,
and soon on Galaxy
Library. Print-on-demand versions are becoming available
through Barnes and Noble and as part of a major new initiative
by R.R. Bowker's "Books in Print." Bowker, the
leading provider of bibliographic information in North
America, has partnered with Booksurge to make available
Booksurge's innovative on-demand book printing service to
publishers of all sizes, and Stonehouse is right there at the
forefront of this exciting new development.

Cult Reviews Are In!
is available now in numerous eBook formats and
will be soon be available in paperback.
what some of the reviewers have to say about Cult:
by Nikesh Murali
The War of the Roses,
Warren Adler's masterpiece, inspired one of the most
famous movies on divorce, Cult
will evoke in you a fear, a dread that reiterates
itself every moment, a lack of poise that turns
deadly with each breath you take and forces you to
take a step back and analyze the little aquarium in
which you have let your concepts regarding society
and life swim freely...
a really good cover and an absolutely terrific tale
in between, Cult goes down as one of the best
fiction works of all time, which has taken up the
responsibility of holding a mirror to our mottled
society. Hats off to the master. Read
