I am a publishing addict, but I don't want to be cured.

My first book was published by Doubleday in 1976.

My second was published by a long-gone tiny company in 1996.

In 2008 I formed Silver Sands Books, planning to publish exactly one book, mostly for friends and family.

Within two years, I published over a dozen books, with concentrations in telecommunications and publishing.

I like writing and publishing. I like it a lot.

The more I did it, the more I wanted to do it.

Today I was amazed (and maybe horrified) to realize that I've started EIGHT MORE BOOKS which have to be finished. And, about six more are still just ideas in my head.

Is this how Simon & Schuster got started?

I'm 65. Shouldn't I be retired or dead?
