Backword Books (of which I’m a member) has recently been discovered by Publishers Weekly. Exciting!

Publishers Weekly, the most influential daily news journal of the publishing industry, featured Backword Books in a piece published September 3.

(Interesting side note: a PW editor published an editorial – “I Don’t Want to Hate Self-Publishers” –  complaining about Henry Baum, one of Backword’s founders, the same day.)

POD People also did a quick piece on Backword’s PW appearance that praises Baum’s Stands-With-Fist approach. (Sorry. “Dances With Wolves” was on a few days ago.)

In APPEARANCES news, several Backword Books authors will appear as guests Friday, September 11 on Stacey Cochran’s BookChatter, airing at 9 p.m., EDT.


Homefront is now available everywhere: (paperback), Kindle, Scribd, and Smashwords.


Carol’s Aquariuma fiction collection (and Backword Book) with stories ranging from fish-in-a-box (“Carol’s Aquarium”) to a tense prison visit (“Visiting Hour”) to a hotel worker with a deployed boyfriend breaking into the room of a soldier on R&R (Pushcart Prize nominated “They Three at Once Were One”) to a prize-winning story illustrating the danger of being too perfect (“Becoming an Oates Girl”) – is available as an EBook only on Kindle, Smashwords, and Scribd.
