Ron Garland learned to read at age three and was writing stories at four. His first muse was murdered when he was five. He sold his first stories at eight. He spent time as a sports writer and at a radical student newspaper. He has written more than a dozen books and had them published by a major New York publisher, some small independent presses, and has self-published and e-published some on his own; his books have been distributed all over the world and made thousands of dollars. But he has never had a New York Times bestseller and never won a Pulitzer Prize. So, after more than seventy years of writing, he is largely unknown, like many, many other unknown writers who have had varying degrees of success, while also working at a day job.

This is the story of one such unknown writer. Perhaps you’re another one? If so, let’s compare stories about the joys and agonies of the writing life.

What this author said about working with us...

I worked with at least a half dozen different people at Luminare and each of them were very helpful, very pleasant, and responded to my questions quickly. I have published several books in the past with a variety of publishers and this was my best experience by far. Luminare would make the changes I wanted, unlike traditional publishers who almost always cut my favorite passages, and unlike other non-traditional publishers who often have a very limited number of options. I am totally pleased with the final result. Ron Garland
