Dear Author:

I welcome this opportunity to introduce you to our affordable way of publishing books. We do it in printed form using conventional printing methods or the latest technology such as print on demand, and electronic eBook publishing on the Internet. It’s a unique and pioneering approach with many benefits for the author.

Publishing your book and taking full advantage of the awesome reach of the World Wide Web allows us to provide you with a full range of publishing services: editorial, book design, artwork, production, promotion, advertising, and distribution. Our personal involvement with every author enables us to make suggestions that will make your work even more attractive and enhance your book’s sales potential.

Why should you publish your book with Grand Lifestyle’s help?

  • First and foremost, there are the practical reasons — the costs and logistical efforts of publishing. Because Grand Lifestyle is dedicating itself to publishing on the Internet in cooperation with online and conventional booksellers, this very affordable way to publish a book opens doors for the many authors who cannot even get their manuscript reviewed by a major publishing company. The awe-inspiring marvel of the World Wide Web places the electronic edition of a book, for example, instantaneously within easy reach of hundreds of millions of people around the globe (that includes literary agents). It’s an exciting opportunity, especially for those authors who do not have the financial resources available to go the conventional self-publishing route.

  • Then there is another very important aspect — optimizing your books exposure. We offer your book for sale at cooperating Internet sites, to book wholesalers, and to book retailers.

What qualifies Grand Lifestyle to publish your book and reach buyers on the World Wide Web?

As Grand Lifestyle’s publisher, it is my know-how and experience that’s on the line. My ideas, motivation, and compassion stimulate our publishing services and drive for excellence.

My entire professional career has been dedicated to exploring and exploiting computer and information technology, coupled with the hands-on experience in the world of publishing as author, editor, and publisher.

I have been on the firing line introducing the benefits of computer and information technology to the business world for more than 50 years. My professional background spans many diverse activities: managing the University of Florida Computing Center; consulting with industry, government and education; founding and managing a computer-technology-based company; writing articles and books; teaching computer and business seminars for executives; publishing newsletters, magazines and books.

As founder of Grand Lifestyle, I combined the latest advances in personal computing and desktop publishing technology with the motivation to accept and stimulate entrepreneurial challenges. Grand Lifestyle offers viable solutions to the author looking for timely and cost-effective publishing services. As editor and publisher of Grand Lifestyle journal, founded in 1990, I am committed to support our book authors to the utmost. Grand Lifestyle is a unique “how to” lifestyle journal which presents dynamic messages, offers educational features, profiles fascinating people (including our authors), and serves as a valuable catalyst between our authors and readers.

My academic credentials include a B.S. in mathematics, the M.A. in management, and Ph.D. in business administration and corporate finance from the University of Florida. I’m listed in Who’s Who in Finance and Industry. When not engrossed in the world of business? I’m an avid pilot and relax by sailing and playing tennis.

The worldwide services available on the Internet are still in their infancy. That applies especially to the publishing of books. When you have your book placed on the World Wide Web in an electronic edition, you too, take part in a great enterprise — going beyond the boundaries of book publishing that belongs to a select few who are “discovered” by major publishing houses (where a few become bestsellers) and to those who can afford to finance it themselves.

The best way to get the complete answers to what we can do with your manuscript is to send it to us. We will examine it carefully and give you our critique and suggestions. We provide this service free of charge. You are under no obligation. Please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of the manuscript to you. Of course, you may also send the manuscript via online services over the Internet.

You will find my curriculum vitae at www.GrandLifestyle.com/introduce.htm.

Please call me at 305-600-4655, fax to 305-600-1213, or email HDinter@GrandLifestyle.com.

In the meantime, please keep visiting us at our website, www.GrandLifestyle.com.

                                    Sincerely,
