Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
I am the author of 28 books (and counting), reports, CD's and other information vehicles in the areas of gymnastics and self-publishing. I was traditionally published in 1992 by Masters Press. My book, "Gymnastics: A Guide for Parents and Athletes" eventually came to rest with McGraw-Hill. Regardless of the book's current incarnation, the royalty remains a paltry 10-15 %. Seeing as I was doing all the "marketing," and getting little for my efforts, I started my own publishing company - Richardson Publishing, Inc. Now I get all the credit (and the blame), but mostly the satisfaction of creation and the fulfillment of a writer's need, especially when the reaction to my work is not only financial reward but feedback that someone has been helped by my words. I look forward to networking with other infopreneurs via this site.
