I took early retirement from a career in business and education, finishing my career as Dean of Instruction at a community college. I soon found that reading books, playing golf a couple times a week, and morning coffee with friends didn't fulfill a life of meaning for me, as work had. 


After a season of dissatisfaction with retirement, I started writing a book called Too Late in the Afternoon. Suddenly, busyness, meaning, and self-fulfillment came back into my life. When I finished the book, I soon found no publisher or agent wanted to pick it up. I discovered a publishing firm in Minneapolis that was all too glad to self-publish the book for me for a price of $1,600. 


Since that time, I started my own publishing firm, have written seven more books, and have published books for a small number of clients who meet my standards.   


I incorporated Pyramid Publishers LLC  in 2012 as an independent book publisher, but I didn't want to hire an office-full of professionals like the self-publishing firm that did my first book. Over the course of the past few years, I have found a network of independent contractors for editing, design, layout, proofreading, and marketing. I have also learned how to design and format with InDesign and market through social media.
