Writer's Tribe Books

Stephen King once wrote that we should “consider what the bottom shelf does to creative writers.” When creating Writers Tribe Review, we thought, Sure, we could write reviews about books that have made The New York Times Bestsellers List…but what would that do to expand the writing community? We are more interested in writing about authors, books, and stories published by small indie presses and literary magazines where writers of every genre and experience collaborate to create a unique body of work.

Published: Writers Tribe Books - October 1st, 2012

In the tradition of John Fante and Jim Thompson's "Now and on Earth," Newman's novel centers on the struggles of a writer trying to make it. Funny as it is honest, Newman nails it. The book shines with great prose, superb characters and an honesty all too often lacking from too much of today's fiction.

A longtime collector and owner of two fine art galleries, Alterman wanted to create a user-friendly book intended not only to educate collectors and enthusiasts about this art but to help train one's eye. The book offers valuable tips on how to avoid common mistakes often experienced by new collectors drawn from the author's personal experiences as a collector and fine art dealer.
