R E C E N T   R E L E A S E S

The Fearless Books site went online in 1998, so I feel like an Internet old-timer. After having books published by two major New York houses in the mid-90s, I decided that I could do a better job with future books independently. I've published more than a dozen titles in print since, including Gary Renard’s Disappearance of the Universe (now a worldwide best-seller from Hay House).

In 2015, I began shifting my company's emphasis from publishing to professional representation, editorial consultations, and book development, a collection of services I call Fearless Literary. One of my specialties is the care, nurturing, and production of personal histories, usually called memoirs. I've helped many independent writers plan, edit, and launch their own stories in both print and digital media on a worldwide basis. To find out more and get a free e-book about starting your memoir, click here.

This site has always had a strong public service component, beginning with two of the most popular online guides to independent bookstores worldwide, the Fearless Independents and the Fearless Antiquarians.

Please check out my personal author website as well. There you'll find books of my own under the Fearless imprint, as well as several more from other publishers. There are also online essays and interviews there. If you’d like to be advised by e-mail of all changes to both sites, join the Fearless News mailing list. 

I’m the webmaster around here so if you have questions or comments about the site, feel free to write.
