Upper Access, Inc., Book Publishers

Upper Access, Inc., Book Publishers We are a small, conventional, royalty-paying book publisher.

Upper Access publishes nonfiction books to improve the quality of life. We are very small, with only a two or three new titles in a typical year. We succeed by publishing books we believe in, and devoting all of our energy into producing and promoting those few books rather than the move typical strategy of publishing large numbers of books and then hoping that a few succeed.

Our newest forthcoming book is beginning to draw serious attention: "How to Get the Death You Want: A Practical and Moral Guide" by John Abraham. John, an Episcopal priest and thanatologist, has devoted the last few decades of his life to the right-to-die movement. The book's publication date is April 1, but for those who prefer not to wait, we have copies available for direct orders at Upper Access.

The book has powerful endorsements from some of the best-known experts--and best-selling authors--in the field, ranging from Derek Humphry (author of "Final Exit") to Rabbi Earl A. Grollman (author of numerous best-selling books on grieving).

If you are interested in this subject, the book is listed on the Upper Access site at http://tinyurl.com/j2gmbju .

A comprehensive manual for those reaching the end of life, and for their friends, relatives, advocates, and caretakers. Abraham describes in detail the challenges faced by those who wish to avoid months or years of painful treatment after losing hope of ever recovering any reasonable quality of life...

OzWatch - The news before it happens

Bruce Kaplan, who wrote "Editing Made Easy," is now operating a very funny Web site. A little like the Onion, but centered more on his home base in Australia. Take a look:http://www.ozwatch.org/

A lighthearted, sometimes cynical, look at news and politics in Australia and around the world.

Considering Cremation? What You Need to Know

One of our authors, Josh Slocum (co-author of Final Rights), was prominently featured in a New York Times article about cremation today. The article was sort of hidden in the Business section, and of course it didn't mention the book, but any coverage by the Times is always appreciated! http://tinyurl.com/h54by9s

Though cremation has grown in popularity, substantial numbers of funeral homes don’t tell consumers of the availability and cost of a basic cremation.

Meredith Wild, a Self-Publisher Making an Imprint

The New York Times has long been infamous for ignoring the great books from small and independent publishers. That might be changing. This morning's Times had a great article about a self publisher who enjoyed enough success to expand and publish other people's works--like so many of us have done.http://tinyurl.com/zud7egj

The Upper Access site was down for several days and during much of that time, the Web-based email addresses were down as well. This was really frustrating--as email and the site are the most important ways most customers and colleagues have to contact us! Several people ended up calling, saying they went to this Facebook site to get my number. So, yet another reason to have a business page on Facebook even if it doesn't get a lot of use.

I'm making slow but real progress in bringing the commercial Web site, "About the House with Henri de Marne," up to date. We now have it connected to a Facebook site, as people keep telling me that Facebook is now, for many, the biggest source of news and information.

As you can tell from this page (!) I'm still a little shaky in use of social media. If any of you have comments and suggestions for this, I'll be truly grateful!

About the House with Henri de Marne - How to maintain and repair your home

There has been a bit of a pause in publishing of new titles--I've been a bit obsessed with upgrading the blog site at www.henridemarne.com .
I've coded my own sites since back in 1995, but a little slow in adopting cutting-edge technology, including the basics of adapting to small screens. Therefore, I got help from two experts, Tom De Moya and Craig Chevrier. The new site just went up -- we are still working on glitches and implementing features, but if you are interested, take a look! And yes, if you run into any problems with it, advice and critiques will be greatly appreciated.

I apologize for having a "page" that constantly gets out of date because of neglect. I expect to revive it in a different form in the not-distant future, with more thought about its function.

Vermont small publishers share big ideas

I've never figured out how to distinguish between notes on the Upper Access page and my personal page--they seem to morph together (or apart) in unpredictable ways. But it seems like a good idea to post today's Freeps article on the Upper Access page:
http://tinyurl.com/pa93gcl

The tactile process of turning a page has been increasingly eclipsed by reading from an electronic device. But whatever the medium, the message remains constant: Books must first be published by somebody somewhere. In Vermont, dozens of those somebodies are devoted to independent literary pursuits o...

You Don't Have to Spend a Ton on a Funeral--Here's Why

This new article by Josh Slocum is drawing some new interest in the Final Rights book.http://www.linkedin.com/redirect?url=http%3A%2F%2Flifehacker%2Ecom%2Fyou-dont-have-to-spend-a-ton-on-a-funeral-heres-why-509099464&urlhash=imLu&_t=tracking_anet

As the director of Funeral Consumers Alliance, a nonprofit that helps people avoid funeral fraud, I know all about mortuary mythology. (That’s what I call the collective "wisdom" about death, dying, funerals, and dead people.) Most Americans get their information about how to bury the dead from the…

Independent Publishers of New England - Home

The New England Publishing Conference is coming together nicely, and will be well worth the trip to Southbridge, Mass. on April 19 and 20. I'm less involved this year than in the past--mainly just working on sponsorships--but looking forward to attending. Archer Mayor seems like the perfect keynoter--a famous author who has taken over much of his own publishing. The role of publishers is changing so fast we sometimes have a hard time remembering what it is--so Mayor's perspective will be of great interest! Details at http://www.ipne.org .
