Information and ideas on the self-publishing industry. I am the President of Southwestern Publishing Group, Inc., a leader in the custom publishing industry. Naturally, I enjoy discussing 'all things books', but occasionally, you will hear a political or sports view.

A few things that jump out at me are how excited and proud they are of the project, but even more importantly is the fact that they are rallying the community around it with their marketing efforts.

If you want to be successful at a publishing project, be prepared to put in the effort and you will reap the benefits.
