Author and Entrepreneur Peter Kozodoy Fills BookTrib in on Publishing’s Millennial-Driven Future

in Non-Fiction by

Since Gutenberg’s printing press, the book world has been in constant flux. But never have we seen such a drastic change in platform, genre, subject matter, and style than we have these last 15 years. Instead of the paperback, you get the Kindle format. Or, instead of the tablet, you get the audio book. Millennials. We’re making everything go so fast. We want it now, all the time, every time. Now. Now. Now. So, how do books fit into this world when we all feel like we don’t have enough time to enjoy our coffee, let alone read a 300-page novel? According to entrepreneur Peter Kozodoy, the publishing industry is in a great position to move with the times precisely…

Dear Reader, When Alexandra and I started this series three years ago, it was with a phone conversation.

Well, with over twenty stories published and so many readers who keep telling us they love this series, I think chemistry has definitely been established.

MTV Suspect’s iO Tillett Wright Answers One Question about ‘Darling Days’

in Non-Fiction by

The crap we go through while establishing our identity (shakes head back and forth). We often face ridicule for being different or criticized for being too much like Joe Shmoe walking down Park Avenue. You can’t win. Oftentimes people assimilate to the status quo or to what society labels as “normal.” Yeah, these people might lead fulfilling lives but do they change the trajectory of history? No, because never has an average person with average ideas and average goals ever changed the world. Nonconformists move society forward, or at least lead it down a different path. Activist, actor, writer, poet and MTV host iO Tillett Wright is one of those nonconformists. Wright’s debut memoir, Darling Days (Ecco Press, September 27, 2016) chronicles his…

Video: Interview with Gary Vikan and Sacred and Stolen: Confessions of a Museum Director

in Non-Fiction by

Sacred and Stolen is the memoir of an art museum director with the courage to reveal what goes on behind the scenes. It lays bare the messy part of museums: looted antiquities, crooked dealers, deluded collectors, duplicitous public officials, fakes, inside thefts, bribery, and failed exhibitions. These back stories, at once shocking and comical, reveal a man with a taste for adventure, an eagerness to fan the flames of excitement, and comfort with the chaos that often ensued. This is also the story of a Minnesota kid who started out as a printer’s devil in his father’s small-town newspaper and ended up as the director of a the Walters, a gem of an art museum in Baltimore. Of his quest…

Dear Reader, The Eternal Guardians are near and dear to my heart, and I’m thrilled to have Unchained included in the 1001 Dark Nights collection. Action, magic, gods, betrayal, secrets, lies, and sex are prominent in every Eternal Guardian story—as is romance. After Prometheus was introduced in Bound, book six in the Eternal Guardians series, I knew he had a story of his own to tell. Where would a Titan who’d been tortured for thousands of years by Zeus go once he was freed? What would he be like? Would he…

Video: Interview with Ryan Aldred and Rum Luck (A Bar on a Beach Mystery)

in Fiction by

Sand. Monkeys. Murder. Ben Cooper was supposed to be on his Pacific honeymoon. Not waking up in a Costa Rican prison cell with no memory of the night before.Then again, Ben never thought he would catch his fiancée with some clown – literally. Or that his friend Miguel would drag him to the surf paradise of Tamarindo before Aunt Mildred could ask why they cancelled the open bar reception. But surely his friend and lawyer Victoria didn’t need to fly down from Toronto overnight. After all, the police would let him go once he sobered up and paid his fine. Right? Except for the little matter of a murder. And Ben’s buying a beachside bar from the victim, hours before…
