As a publisher, we publish both Trade Paperbacks and eBooks utilizing national distribution channels to make our titles available at Amazon.com, BN.com, and Sony Reader and iPad (ebooks only).

Mission: ASD Publishing opened their doors in spring 2011 with the goal of promoting the spirit of the indie community. Taking a risk on a new writer or propelling an existing one into the digital world is ASD's passion. Our authors, like our company, do not fall into one particular genre - however each promote the mission of ASD through their wonderful words that share journeys of personal growth. Being a small publishing house with both fiction and non-fiction allows the company to reach a multitude of readers and gives writers an alternative to traditional publishing. www.asdpublishing.com In 2013, ASD expanded to the world of Film with the feature film HE IS GONE. http://heisgonemovie.com Working with a director and screenwriter during pre-production, we are still raising funds to see that film to fruition. In 2014, we started work on a short film while talking to other filmmakers about how we might be able to help with their projects. ASD has a mission to be a strong indie voice by concentrating on intriguing and arresting works no matter if that's for books, film, or the stage. Followers will find that our projects cover many subjects as we do not discriminate based on race, religion, sexual orientation - or anything else. We want to share many stories of people's journeys...whatever their path may be.

Last fall I visited the hallowed grounds of Mauthausen concentration camp. The wheels were in motion to start writing the story of Reparations The Film. A year later and here we are in post production and I hope I am doing justice to those who lived through the atrocity while sharing a moving story of friendship and truth.

We still need help to finish the film. All tax deductible donations are greatly appreciated. (We need to finish sound, color correction, poster creation, and more.)

Please give if you can. And if you want to come onboard as a producer, let me know...we have a place for you. 🙏

I've written a new short film that I'm directing based on my travels to Mauthausen Concentration Camp last fall and inspired by a friend who was liberated from there in 1945. Reparations The Film speaks to the money holocaust survivors have been paid for years and points to the current discussion around reparations for descendants of slaves.

YOU can help me get this film made. ANY amount you can donate is greatly appreciated - AND it's tax deductible.

You would be amazed how quickly donations to an indie film add up.

You could be covering a crew member's dinner.
Helping to purchase a certain prop.
Paying for the SAG actor's benefits (which must be paid when using union actors).
Helping to rent lighting equipment.

Every dollar you donate helps. We're just starting this campaign while some other producers come onboard in the background, so we appreciate you making a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation to Reparations The Film.

Thank you!

Huge congrats to Beth Baur (Lead actress in our film MOTHER) for not only being nominated for this award each year, but getting honorable mention. Out of over 4,000 nominees, only 26 receive this honor. We know she is a talent, but this also shows how much her students love her and how she passes that talent to others.
