Writers are, simultaneously, similar to everybody else and unlike anybody else.
As is the case with most of those who choose to create for a living, a writer tends to look at things differently than say, an electrician or an accountant.
RD Peters is no exception, he sees the world in his own way and, more specifically, sees the obstructions that would force others to find a new line of work as new challenges to overcome.
For example, after forming a literary agency to represent aspiring writers in 1996, he received a rejection notice from a publisher about one of his clients. The letter offered RD this advice…
“If you think this writer is so good, why don’t you publish his work yourself?”
So he did; Hence the birth of Iron Pyramid Publications.
Like any new business, Iron Pyramid went through a steep learning curve, but in a short time the fledgling company was boasting over 35,000 books in print.
That represents one side of this multi-faceted man.
He also published his own work.
His first book, “Time, Thoughts… Words” is a collection of 27 dark tales that deal with the time continuum that we humans take for granted. Peters’ stories pose some interesting questions that are likely to stir the imagination of readers. The book has received several five star reviews despite it relative obscurity.
Another of RD’s novels, “What Goes Around” (released in July 2009 and available at Amazon.com) deals with a writer’s struggles against his own demons as he finally meets his soul mate.
Also in his portfolio is a collection of short stories centered on the darker side of life. The six volume set is titled “Things Not Human”.

Iron Pyramid Publications does not intend to deal exclusively with writers. Musicians and film-makers are also welcomed to take advantage of his company’s desire to help struggling artists.
Perhaps it was his battle with cancer that gave him his “can-do” attitude…or maybe it was that very attitude that saw him through the battle.
Either way – RD Peters is an entrepreneur worth seeking out if you enjoy macabre tales about the darker side of life or if you are seeking to have a novel published or if you want to record that CD or make that movie.
For years struggling artists have dealt with a Catch-22. Doors were never opened because they were unheard of and until those doors were opened they would never be heard of.
Iron Pyramid Publications is the company with an open door policy.
