I want mainstream publishers to take over the publishing and distribution of some of my books which I have sold almost exclusively to readers in southwestern Ontario. In particular Sarah's Journey is one of those rare books that excites readership. It deserves a wider audience and will most certainly be a large best seller from what I have been able to judge from its readership.
