My New Publishing Imprint: PMP BOOKS

Okay, so it's not terribly original, but I felt that maintaining a consistency with the blog was important. From this point forward, all my e-titles will be listed on Amazon as "Published by Post Modern Pulp Books", and the PMP BOOKS logo appears on all the print copies. Notice is also given on the page with the copyright and so on in both the print and digital versions of everything.

These days, with the power that various DIY resources and social networking provides you, anyone can become their own small press, and I feel it helps to reaffirm that those of us who are not going down the traditional publishing routes can still create and distribute legitimate products without the stigma of it being handled through a "vanity press" or similar venue.

Below you can see the four trade paperback titles I currently have as part of the "PMP BOOKS" line:

And here are the backs of the three titles currently bearing the logo:


The Killer Instincts cover will get the logo in September when I begin to roll out other e-formats after the KDP Select license agreement runs out.

Congrats, man. You planning to publish other people or it's just your own thing?

If others want to use the imprint, I'm glad to work with them. I've been figuring out the process of getting works on Amazon, going through CreateSpace, using Gumroad, etc. and would gladly aid and assist anyone who wants advice and promotion, as well as technical assistance with file conversion, getting books ready for CreateSpace, etc..

I had the exact same idea, though I don't have a logo for my eventual print titles. My "company" is Single Bullet Press hahaha. Perhaps I should commission somebody to draw me a logo of a bullet.

Go to Fotolia or another stock photo site and do a quick search for "bullet". Grab it, give it a cool, styllized filter, and add your SINGLE BULLET PRESS to the logo. Easy peasy!

Organizations need to be assured the individuals that manage their projects can integrate methods to achieve sustainability goals and still achieve project specific objectives. Project Managers need credentials that validate their proficiency with these specialized qualities. PMP Certified and scrum certified project managers can learn, apply, and validate mastery of sustainability based project methods to meet these demands.
