POWERS PRESS, an “imprint” or sub-brand of BIMINI BOOKS, was initially created for the Inspiring Women Today series of books in 2019. The brand is devoted to books that convey real-life experiences and wisdom that when shared are intended to broaden our perspectives and horizons, to engage and inspire, and to compliment our own real-life experiences with those of others who have perhaps been through things we have or possibly will, along with how they overcame or learned from them to get where they are, all helping us better experience, enjoy, and share life. I am proud of and excited about POWERS PRESS and our initial book series, Inspiring Women Today.

YEARS AGO, I was forming up a team that would fluctuate between one and twenty-five writers, an editor, a graphic artist, and a project manager, all to complete the many book projects that needed ghostwriting and creating for clients at the time. Together we helped create over 200 books, from the collaborations with authors, management and training of writers and editors, file formatting for e-books and layout and creation of print books, cover design, and production and marketing of published works.
But as exciting and challenging as the ghosting was for all involved, most writers still held a dream of publishing their own work, so I created Bimini Books, a small publishing house of lifestyle titles. It became an aggressive project of learning the writing and publishing business, with great excitement. “Each day we learn a month’s worth,” it seemed, as we read, observed, tested, and consulted with friends and colleagues who were experts in the business. The result was Bimini Books, my first publishing endeavor.
I wanted a name that reflected lighter fare—music, holidays, short fiction, happiness, and so on, It became a matter of “which island in the Caribbean to name the business after,” and which held some relevance or meaning. Bimini is a tiny getaway for fisherman, boaters, and lovers of flip flops, reachable by small craft off the east coast of Florida. It’s where I proposed to Dawn, my wife, over twenty-five years ago. She said yes. We are still married today.
