About the Author:

In 1979 author Tom Williams bought a weekly newspaper, The Mecklenburg Gazette, Hen Davidson, North Carolina. He did it with no money down, by assuming the debts of the paper. In three years he increased circulation 400% and revenues by 1000%, and sold out to a newspaper chain for fifty themes the purchase price.

Subsequently, Williams founded Venture Press, his home-based book publishing company. He publieshed his own books and quite a few books by others. His book publications included the hiestorical reprints, civic picture-histories, folklore and oral history and other projects described in detail in the Kitchen-Table Publisher series of publishing manuals

He started and published many magazines, including Tar Heel: The Magazine of North Carolina (a state-wide magazine), The New East magazine, NCEast Magazine (regional magazines) and Washington Magazine (a cIty magazIne). His freelance artIcles have appeared In magazInes rangIng from EsquIre to Home OffIce ComputIng. He published association directories and chamber of commerce "quality of life" magazines, newcomer guIdes, and tourism guides. His company also published a chaIn of phenomenally successful apartment guides in seven major cities.

His book How to Publish Your Poetry (Venture Press, 1991) was a WrIter's DIgest Book Club selectIon. Anotir book of mIne, How to Make $100,000 a Year In Desktop PublIshIng (Betterway PublIcatIons, 1990) was a best seller In Its fIeld.

He learned how to do these things the hard way, hands-on. There were no books, no guides to follow. He learned, step-by-step, how to do It with virtually no money up front. He learned how to spot profitable opportunities, size up the competition, and position his publications for success. Niche-market publishing can be a very lucrative and personally satIsfying business. It's all in knowIng how.
