I loved the eclectic selection on Floodgate. I read all 14 pages of Tina's father's Visit to his hometown in Germany. It is a very personal story that also links with my family history.

I decided to add some photos to the collection and will try to upload my cartoon once in has been turned into PDF format.

Thanks to you Bob for letting us know about this and to you Tina for opening it up.

Openfloodgate is great! I agree.
And thanks for the tip from before. I'm loving your books. Keep up the good work!
Warm Regards,

Bob, thank so much for the plug for OpenFloodgate. As an entrepreneurship educator it is particularly fascinating to "watch" the evolution of this venture. Each day I make decisions about the direction of this new business and think about what I can teach my students based upon my experience. I have started companies before, but in hindsight things look much different than when one is immersed in the day to day activies of running a new venture.

I was inspired to start OpenFloodgate as a result of my experience as an author. I have written a bunch of books. However, I also have a collection of material that hasn't found a home with a traditional publisher. These works are gathering dust on my desk. I realized that I am not the only one. There are millions of people creating interesting work that never sees the light of day. So, I decided to start OpenFloodgate to open the path to publication to everyone. The goal is to build a site that people will be proud to post their stories, poems, articles, scripts, powerpoint slides, case studies, etc. As in any venture, the path is not well marked and it will be fascinating to see how this grows. Thanks for helping me spread the word. Cheers!
