Combining his love for storytelling with his marketing niche, he started Legacy Publishing Group LLC, and has obliged himself to sell more than just stories in print. “My affiliates who specialize in marketing, branding and advertisement see my vision clearly and Legacy Publishing Group will distribute material accepted by multiple genre’s and adapt to it’s lifestyle.
