Tolana Publishing was conceived in 2004. The concept for a series of computer books that were really helpful and taught people the skills they wanted to learn has been floating around in my head since 1999. I actually wrote large portions of the books then tried to get a publisher to pick up the books. No such luck! At some point I decided to self publish because I believe that people can learn from my writing and teaching style. I hope that you agree.
I named the publishing company Tolana Publishing in honor a good friend (Tolana Jolen', as I called her) that was an aspiring fiction author. Sadly, she didn't live long enough to fulfill her dream. This is my way of keeping her enthusiasm and love of the writing craft alive. I miss you Tolana.
While the first line of books that are being published are technical, at some point, a fiction division will be started.
