Member Directory Listing - About Us:
Rootstock Publishing is an innovative, hybrid publishing company that partners with the author, whom we think of as the rootstock, the primary source. We are not unique, modeling ourselves on other relatively new, non-traditional publishing partnership houses that have met with successes for many new writers. First, we seek writers with high quality, competent, and compelling manuscripts. In this respect, we are a curated press. And, we seek writers who want more control over their work, who seek higher earnings per book sold, and who are willing to invest toward that end.

Rootstock's publishing model is designed to maximize the profits of the author, preserve the author's copyright, and provide the author with editing, proofing, design, online distribution of the print book, eBook distribution, and to support the author's promotional efforts, among other things. We also provide support for distribution to bookstores, and schools and libraries through our relationship with Ingram and Baker & Taylor.

Rootstock Publishing is an imprint of Multicultural Media Inc., home of Lyrichord World Music, Lyrichord Classical and Early Music, Multicultural Media's Music of the Earth recordings, Rootstock Recordings, MCM Films, and the acclaimed JVC Smithsonian Folkways DVD collections of world music and dance, featuring 41 volumes and 20 books. We have many years experience publishing program books that accompany music and film programs on compact disc and DVD, and selling music, DVDs and books through bookstores and online.

Through our Promotion and Publicity Services we provide authors support who wish to self-publish or publish with another publishing company. From editing and proofreading to email and snail-mail campaigns to bookstores and libraries, from website design to book trade shows and advertising, from press releases to sell-sheet/press kit development, we can support an author in all the ways she wishes to promote herself and her book.

These eleven stories, from Bears to Worms, reveal a common thread in our collective and inner lives.

Book #2 Description
Charles Zachariah Goldberg left Bialystok in 1906 at the age of 20 in the aftermath of a deadly pogrom in Bialystok, then a part of Czarist Russia. Published later in life, living in Connecticut, these are his remembrances and stories about growing up in Bialystok, tales of the dreadful, and of the humorous, of family life, and of his journey to America. He writes in a voice all his own, familiar, plainspoken, direct and honest. Originally written in Yiddish for publications in the New York City area in the 1930s and 1940s, Charles Zacariah Goldberg stories capture both the immediacy of his experiences and the tales told him by others.

Book #3 Description
After a high school student is found dead at the bottom of a rock ledge on the outskirts of Montpelier, Vermont, the community explores its conflicting beliefs and values and the truths below the surface. The book explores hate speech and free speech, cyberbullying and privacy, religious and sexual freedom, and a community's many faces of love and loss. The novel is imbued with a deep respect for the law as well as for the passionate and irrational human beings who live within, and sometimes beyond, its constraints.
