We are publishers, and books are our medium. At least, our starting medium.
We begin with content for which the book is still the right medium and we go from there. We’re traditional book publishers working within the book industry establishment, such as it is, and doing things our own way. Read more about Everything Goes Media.

October 2, 2013. Just released: Death by Children: I Had Kids So You Don’t Have To. Congratulations Bull!
Edgy, rude, sweet, self-deprecating and—most importantly—hilarious, this collection of blog posts and columns from award-winning humorist Christopher “Bull” Garlington serves as uproarious evidence that fatherhood is hard, often messy, and always life-altering work. Where other parenting memoirs focus only on the diaper years, Death by Children proves that a father’s job only gets more complicated as children move into adolescence and prepare to leave the nest. Parents—and dads in particular—will have no trouble recognizing their own daily struggles in the humorous and engaging anecdotes gathered in this book, including favorites “F-Bomb Report,” “Pauseaholics,” “Driving Miss Crazy,” and “Raised by Google.”
