About Mick Rooney

I am a writer of fiction from the Republic of Ireland. I have published eight books since 1990, including the novel, Academy, and most recently Filigree & Shadow. Over two years ago I began researching the publishing industry, and in particular Independent, POD (print-on-demand) and Subsidy/Self Publishers. Many of the findings of that research are can be found at my site, POD, Self Publishing & Independent Publishing, together with my own experiences in the work of writing and publishing. In late 2008, I relaunched my own publishers, Aquarius Communications Publishing. I am also a contributor to Publishing Basics Magazine, selfpublishingreview.com and many other writer and publisher forums.
