cowboy bob I have worked in the book industry since I was in high school – in bookstores new and used, and as a sales representative for a variety of trade publishers (including Pocket Books, New American Library, Dutton, Dial Books for Children, Scholastic, Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Heinemann, Monthly Review Press, Zagat, Nolo Press, University of Minnesota Press, Howard University Press, University of California Press, and Princeton University Press) as well as with a number of smaller presses, covering a territory that included at different times the entire West coast from the Mexican border to the Canadian border, Hawaii and Nevada. Now, I utilize my experience in the book business to work as an independent commission sales representative, currently covering the Western states for the group of presses listed below.
