Welcome to the Third Millennium!
We are now in the second decade of the Third Millennium, and despite the best efforts of Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick, we have yet to build the beautiful spaceships and space stations of 2001: A Space Odyssey. There is not yet an American moonbase where an alien monolith will be unearthed, although Elon Musk is doing his best to remedy that oversight.
The prophets of the twentieth century may have been a bit optimistic in some of their predictions and they completely missed the boat on others.
No science fiction writer ever came close to predicting the INTERNET, or imagined that we would have achieved the dream of universal and instantaneous communication so quickly. And we are just now discovering that this is not the unalloyed benefit that writers of speculative fiction might have imagined.
The Internet has proven itself a two-edged sword. It has driven the advance of technological knowledge to Warp Factor Eight, and disrupted society beyond our predecessors' imagining!
Third Millennium Publishing is a sample of these breakneck changes. From the time Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in the mid-fifteenth century, authors were the servants of publishers. The publishers owned the big expensive machines on which books were printed; and therefore, no author's work could reach the reading public without them.
How things have changed in a mere two decades.
Now, authors can deliver their intellectual property online in the form of ebooks or printed books without the intercession of middle-men of any kind. It was the reason Third Millennium Publishing was created in 2000, to allow an authors'creative juices to flow without hindrance.
We are not the publishers of the books found here in the traditional sense. The authors are. We provide them the infrastructure and services that allow them to deliver their golden words directly to you, the reader; thereby guaranteeing that you will have a pure reading experience. When you are moved to cheer by a particularly stirring passage, when you feel a tear rolling down your face because of an evocative description, when you picture the golden-haired beauty that is the heroine in your mind's eye, you know that the words you are reading are those of the author alone. He or she is the final arbiter of what goes into our books, and it is the author who both sets the conditions of sale and collects the lion's share of the money when you buy their work.
Gone are the days when the creative talent in publishing received 8% of the sales dollar while the publishers, printers, jobbers, bookstores, and supermarkets split the other 92%. Finally, the chains have been cast off and the authors are free to pursue their muse where they will.
So, if you are looking for a good read, or merely want to experience the future, look no further. Third Millennium Publishing has what it is you are looking for.
If you are looking for a particular author, you can find them in our Authors Section, along with links to their private sections of our website.

And, if you are a writer looking for a method to sell your work to the general public, check out our Writer's Services section. It is there that we will answer your questions and you can decide if we are what it is you have been searching for. Whatever your reason for coming here, feel free to stay as long as you want.
