About the author

Seth started cooking plant-strong farm food in his parents' kitchen at the age of 11. After a decade-long career in several professional kitchens between Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, he developed a distaste for meat-centric, butter-drowned, flour-rich and sugar-laden standard American food. He quickly outgrew the art and techniques of making food in conventional kitchens.

In 2013, he identified a need for healthful foods and made it his business to help individuals with or without health conditions eat healthier. He has cooked for clients in Pittsburgh and Washington, DC metro area for more than three years. His slow food brunch served once a month was discovered by out-of-town foodies. Prior to his bicycle travel, he ran an organic raw juice bar and vegan cafe that earned a gold-plate recognition by Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurants.

Nearly a dozen of his recipes won top prizes in national and local contests open to professional chefs. Some others were published in Taste of Home Magazine, The World's Best Asian Noodle Recipes: 125 Great Recipe from Top Chefs cookbook and on a few blogs. He has been written up by several bloggers and food writers.

Austin Brothers Publishing logo Austin Brothers Publishing

Helping writers realize the dream of publishing a book is the goal of Austin Brothers Publishing. We provide all the services of a traditional publisher, working in partnership with the author, to create the book the author desires.

Our strength is the ability to fill any role you might have, including ghost writing, helping you complete a manuscript, publishing, printing, distribution, or any service you might need to complete your book. Our process is determined by your needs. If you want assistance with self-publishing we can help.

Depending on the author and book, we can function as a traditional publisher, providing a royalty for each sale, or if you need more assistance, you will pay a small fee up front, but then we provide a very generous royalty. Working together, we can decide which method is best for both of us.

Each of our books are designed and produced individually, no templates or computer generated boxes. You will work directly with a real person who shares the same goal, to get your book published in the best possible manner.

Our desire is to publish both fiction and non-fiction stories written by authors who have a strong desire to help change the world “one page at a time.”

Our aim is to be nothing but just and fair in our practices; we do not take advantage of authors or their royalties, which they so richly deserve (the CEO is an author too!).

Virtualbookworm Publishing logo Virtualbookworm Publishing

Virtualbookworm (VBW) Publishing was founded by a writer frustrated by the long wait time and occasional heartbreak often associated with the publishing industry. After researching the various "alternatives," he discovered a number of subsidy publishers that would publish any author ... for a price. Unfortunately, many reviewers (and readers) thumb their noses at books from such houses, since all it takes is cash to get published by them.

Then he discovered self publishing and the endless opportunities it presented. However, such a venture requires countless hours of research of printers, proofreaders, artists, etc. And after publication, even more time is consumed trying to market the book.

So, was established as a "clearinghouse" for authors, since it offers virtually everything under one roof. Although we now charge setup and design fees, those costs are kept to a minimum so as to cover all expenses. And, as with "traditional" publishers, we carefully review each manuscript and only offer contracts to authors who truly have exceptional manuscripts. We don't print garbage, and we want our authors to proudly say they were published by Virtualbookworm. If we accept your book for publication, you can rest assured that it will be sold next to other quality books, and not just work that had enough money behind it. And, you'll receive some of the best royalties in the business!

Since our initial costs are so low, we want your books to sell as much as you do.
