What Do Young Readers Crave?

If you are writing a book, what do you envision your story involves? Nail-biting scenes? The reveal of shocking secrets? A seafaring adventure to a mystical world? These ideas add up to creating a story that involves an interesting cast of characters. Moreover, their role in your story revolves the gears of the plot. If you are writing for a younger audience (11-18), the task of developing well-thought-out characters may become more daunting. Rest assured, you can produce a story for young readers by understanding what appeals to them.

Whether you are a novice writer or a critically acclaimed author, […]

Let’s Write Together 2018 Contest

That time of the year has arrived once more! It’s time to start preparing the fifth issue of “Let’s Write Together.”

Let’s Write Together began over four years ago when professor and author Dr. Robert Watson and his son, Alex Watson, decided to team up with Trimark to help make published writers out of local students.

Alex developed an interest for writing from a young age. When he was just 11 he woke up his dad to let him know he wanted to write a book.

“Tsunami” was released the very next year.

That first experience proceeded to grow Alex’s […]

Haley Marguerite Praise

Trimark Press has been in business for over 20 years now. We’ve been lucky enough to work with some magnificent authors.

Among them is Haley Marguerite. She may be one of our youngest authors but she is definitely the most hard-working.

Haley travels the country doing readings in schools and participating in farmer’s markets to promote her first book, “Charlie Takes an Adventure.” Charlie has been a great success and even made it into the Miami Seaquarium!

We’re extremely proud of everything she does and know there is still much more she will accomplish.

We’ve formed a great bond with Haley, […]

Interview with Samanthani Singh

“The Importance of Soft Skills for Global Managers” provides the information needed to create successful and productive relationships when doing business across the world. Author Samanthani Singh answers a few questions about her process and goals.

What was your inspiration behind wanting to write this book?
My inspiration came from Glenn Rifkin’s 2006 article in the Harvard Business Review. This led me to explore the topic for my MBA dissertation and after I passed, I thought it would be useful to share the findings of my research and so publishing a book was the way to go.

What do you hope […]

Just Write

Restoring the ‘Unwritten’ Word
It was written. Or so I thought.

That is to say, I screwed up. From what I can recall, on that Monday I had two files with the same name, each opened at the same time, and some hurried cutting and pasting, not saving, and then closing everything out in a hurry (I think I was late for work), acted to wipe out the entire passage. Four thousand words – closer, it turned out, to 5,000, because other passages were also lost. And because I work full time, months of weekend work was lost. I could bring […]

Ballpark Praise

Deerfield Beach- July 18, 2017- It’s been a little over two months since “Danger at the Ballpark” was published and the accolades continue to pour in.

This time they come in the form of a very flattering review from “Death at the Ballpark” author Bob Gorman.
“Miami attorney Jack Herskowitz has just published (Trimark Press, 2017) an interesting, clearly written treatise on the dangers fans face when attending baseball games. Written for the layperson, Danger at the Ballpark describes in detail, with numerous case illustrations, how the archaic legal doctrine commonly known as the Baseball Rule (“assumption of risk”) has been […]
