Glenbridge Publishing Ltd. began in 1986, and thousands of queries and proposals have crossed our desk since that time. The desire to have a book published has been a constant, and now with the advent of the Internet it remains even more so. The sharing of a good book, a great book, or an unusual book with others remains important to being connected.
Here you will find titles that excite, illuminate, educate and help you, the reader, and can be ordered directly. We ship our books within twenty-four hours of receipt. We honor requests for shipping on a special schedule as well. The atmosphere and camaraderie of the old neighborhood bookstore may be disappearing for the moment, but now you have the proprietor just keystrokes away.
The author and the reader come together with ideas that may make a difference in one’s life. Words open the mind, ignite a flame, and may lead you to new directions. Books are timeless and may last over decades, even centuries. These connecting links between people and the printed word make a difference in our lives every day, since the excitement of finding an answer drives us to wanting more information.
Words are key to learning, alerting our mind and pushing it to know more. That’s the joy of working with authors who love what they do, from the first draft, to the editing, to the revisions, and finally to the finished book. And with the digital age you now can have a book at your command as quickly as the blink of an eye. The world of books has moved quickly into new avenues with every day meeting a new adventure, and there will be more surprises to come.
For many years we have had the privilege of placing our authors on radio, television, in newspapers, magazines, journals, on the Internet, and more. We would like to share some of those events, honors and awards our authors have gathered:
WONDERLUST: Wondering While Wandering, Ventures for an Inquiring Mind by Richard O. Jacobs
Richard Jacobs developed a passion for nature photography early and has trekked to many of the primitive sites on our globe, on all seven continents, from the Andes to the Himalayas, from the Arctic to the Antarctic. His photography and his treks throughout the world convinced him of nature’s spirituality and importance to mankind. This book reflects the culmination of his Wondering While Wandering, approached with the curiosity of his Child Within, researched with skills honed as a lawyer, and photographed with his passion for nature.
WEDU/PBS video interview
Jacobs will sign his new book in Tampa, Florida with several hundred friends attending in May, 2015. He will be appearing at numerous events in Florida and beyond.
INTERNATIONAL SECURITY: PERSONAL PROTECTION IN AN UNCERTAIN WORLD
Orlando Wilson, author of international Security: Personal Protection in an Uncertain World, can be found anywhere in the world on a given day. His security work takes him far and wide, including West and South Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, U. S., Latin America, and the Caribbean.
The New York Times included Orlando and his new book in an article on security just as the book was rolling off press. His appearances have included Mexico media and TV Tokyo and the crew flew in to his U.S. office to film a piece that appeared on TV and the Internet. Current TV has filmed at his headquarters. A story about his work appeared in Newsweek, Spanish edition, as well as articles in numerous newspapers. Brazilian TV flew in to film him for a TV program scheduled to air in April. Orlando’s experiences have ranged providing close protection/bodyguard services for the Middle East Royal families and various corporate clients. He has also provided security for one of the first media teams that drove into Haiti after the earthquake in 2010.
