Marnick Press was
established in 2005 as an independent publisher of small works by new
and upcoming authors. Initially it published the works of its founder, but soon branched out into collections by other
authors. The publishing world can be extremely difficult to break into
and new writers can soon become discouraged by the lack of interest
in their work by the big production houses, and the overwhelming number of choices available for self-publication.
Thankfully there are ways
to get your book on the market and available internationally, and Marnick
Press was created to make that available to those with no publishing
or marketing experience.
The Founder /
was born in 1972, worked his way through school and university and found
himself in the high-tech field. When the Internet became available to
the general public he was with the first groups of people who began
to create and design web sites. For over fourteen years he has worked
with a wide variety of small, medium and home-based businesses. Realtors,
Financial Planners, Technology Companies, Non-Profits and numerous industries
have relied on his knowledge and artistic style to present their companies
literature and history, Martin returned to university in 2003 to pursue
an English and History degree. Through support of faculty and fellow
students, he published his first collection of poetry, Naked
Shall I Return. Response from readers and audiances at poetry
readings has been overwhelmingly positive. The degree led to a career in education, and he currently teaches English, History, and Law at the high-school level.
Married since 1995,
Martin and Nicole have four fantastic children. A desire to instill
a love for literature in younger readers has led to the creation of
several children's books, currently being illustrated. Using his own
young ones, and parenting experience as inspiration, his writing is
sure to strike a cord with parents and children alike.
A desire to promote
strong and lasting marriages has led to the one resource book that every
man should have, How to Fake Romance
(when your love is real). Here at last is a book that combines
humour, practical information, and simple ways for men to keep the spark
alive for both them and their wives.
Martin has also
spent countless hours researching, training and writing for and about
the Internet. His technology articles have appeared on different web
sites and in local publications. His "Introduction to the Web"
guide has served as a springboard for many small business people who
wanted to learn to design themselves.
Martin is also a regular contributor to the literary journal, The Pacific Rim Review of Books, where he reviews poetry and non-fiction. Several articles have been republished in book format in the anthology titled Against the Shore: The Best of Pacific Rim Review of Books, and in the upcoming Making Waves. Other articles, reviews, and poetry have found their way into print in Down in the Valley, Event Magazine, and a number of websites.
