Our Destiny: to Inform, to Inspire, even Surprise You
Books of Destiny is a new book publishing house. It's the result of a publishing revolution. Emergent technologies, from "desktop publishing" tools to Internet book retailing to print on demand publishing and social media marketing have democratized the publishing business. No longer can an insular coterie of literary agents and publishing houses prevent authors from gaining access to the judgments of readers who seek fresh voices and ideas. So, it's those readers we hope to serve.
For now, Books of Destiny is the exclusive source of books written by just one author, Michael D. Riley. However, this is not a "vanity press" house. Instead, we will make every effort to popularize and profitably sell the titles we represent. Why did we choose "Books of Destiny" as our name? The idea for this identity was originally based on the metaphysical ideas behind our novel, "Gifts". But the name's fateful implications tickled our fancy, so we've also applied it to our non-fiction work as well.
