All three books in the Hero series are available worldwide now…
Rose Hamilton-Gottlieb’s novel Traveling Light, a story of three women friends from California joining RAGBRAI in 1990. Addie, a hard-driving saleswoman, has not been back to her home state since a painful exit thirty years ago. Mag shares Addie’s Iowa heritage, but has none of her self-confidence. She’s haunted by a recurring dream that leaves her fearing for her sanity. Claire, a native Californian, is a college professor with an analytical view of the world, a passion for houses, and a penchant for flighty men.
Ten thousand strong, RAGBRAI is a traveling international city. Riding the blue highways and camping in small towns along the route, the friends confront rough terrain, inclement weather, their own physical limitations, and major life issues. In the process, they learn from one another, from the past, and from the land.
We do take publishing seriously, but we also have fun designing books, sharing stories with authors, and hearing back from their readers how a particular book changed their life. Such is the power of books…
For us publishing means to make public, to share with the world what you, as author, have created over many months, moons, and sometimes, years. Unlike most publishers, we think of the relationship with you as a partnership in which both of us are equal collaborators who want to share ideas and stories widely, while benefitting equally.
