I have been into publishing since my time at Sheridan College. At that time, only print publishing was available to me. I started my publishing company (Next Level Press) in 1991. I have been able to publish one, two-volume History (Burma Liberators) by Jack R.W. Gwyne Timothy. I also published an educational video about Equine Massage, which I wrote a soundtrack for, and had narrated by a professional travel writer. Next Level Press also published an ebook about teaching university courses online which we made into a free ebook download for teachers.
