Like many of the entrepreneurs who have been featured previously, Daniel Barker simply found a way to turn something he enjoys into a business. Roughly ten years ago, Mr. Barker began writing short stories about a character created by his uncle. Daniel enjoys writing about this particular character because of the character’s versatility; he can literally go anywhere. While his first book – Sergeant Stone, NOPD – took the better part of ten years to write, the second book – Sergeant Stone, Sentinel of the Crescent City – took only twelve months.
Mr. Barker chose to self-publish both books, an increasingly popular option in recent years. Using this method, authors can pick and choose from many of the standard services associated with traditional publishing. According to Publisher’s Weekly, self-published authors now command “significant market share in all genres.”
Becoming a published author requires a tremendous amount of dedication. Today’s entrepreneur identified his passion, evaluated his skills, and followed his dream.

Daniel Barker will also be at the Library in Crestview, Florida for a book signing on Saturday, May 30, 2015, from 10:00 until noon!
