About meI am a freelance writer and publisher originally from Amesbury, Massachusetts. I am the owner and publisher of Obert Publishing, a small independent publishing business specializing in helping new authors and groups to self-publish and market their work. Obert Publishing operates under the imprint Pear Tree Publishing.

About my libraryI love to read. When I was growing up, we had a library in my house. I started just looking at the pictures, then reading the descriptions under those pictures. Soon I was reading everything, especially science. I started to collect my own little library, mostly science and science fiction. Throughout my school days, I was always checking out the Amesbury school and town libraries to see what was new. Even more so today, my Haverhill library card is well worn. I read even more now than I did then. Today, the range of topics is even wider. I still love science and science fiction but I now read and study other subjects such as engineering, business and history.

Read your review of "The Hunt for Atlantis." If you liked that, check out Matthew Reilly's Jack West, Jr. stories: "The Seven Deadly Wonders," "The Six Sacred Stones," and "The Five Greatest Warriors." Reilly's Scarecrow novels are great too. Wholly unbelieveable, but great fun to read!
I have received it, and it is in my "to read" pile. Thanks! I should have it reviewed sometime in July.
Yes. It is.
Sorry, Chris. I am afraid I did not receive it. I have moved in the past few months, though, so maybe that has slowed it down.
no I did not.
Yes. I did get the book. I have read part of it and I like it. I am reading other books right now. But, it is on my list.

Thanks so much for the well wishes on my booktore Chris. I wish I could say it was going well but it isn't. Business is very slow going. I'm getting quite discouraged so if you like to shop bookstores or have friends that do, send them my way. I'm beginning to finally realize that the high percentage of books being bought these days really and truly are being bought online. Internet bookselling, especially on Amazon, is kicking all of us small independents in the butt and have taken over the market. UGH!

Hope you'll consider visiting my shop, thanks for the welcome.

think you for sending the book "My walk with Mary" to me. i got it today. and will add it to my long list of books to read.

thanks agen
Mr. Obert,

I really enjoyed your book "The Next Harvest... Vineyards & Wineries of New England". I live in Iowa and hope to get out to see some relatives next year and take advantage of your very thorough catalog of wineries in the New England area. I especially like the maps and personal notes about the wineries and the owners. I am adding my review to LibraryThing this afternoon. Sorry for the delay.

Hi Chris, yeah, I just bought my copy too. Haven't even received it yet. But I did read an excellent op-ed piece by Kessler in the WSJ-EU (16july09) and got interested. Kessler pointed out the close correlation between the recent stock market rally (which continued yesterday) and the Fed's efforts to boost money supply. Bottom line: when the Fed prints dollars the stock market goes up and vice versa. Kessler called this: The Bernanke Market.

Per Kessler's suggestion I've started to follow the release of the weekly money supply figures (every Friday). Follow the link below...

All Zee Best, TCW
Chris, Your site is marvelous
