About Preston Woods
Preston Woods Publishing Company started as an idea in 2001. That idea was to create a small, author friendly publishing company to focus on books of regional and historical interest. And for the rest of the year the company stayed just that -- an idea. In 2002, in conversations with Frank Steber, my old High School English teacher, I mentioned that if he wrote a book, Preston Woods would publish it. I didn't give it too much thought at the time, but some months later I heard from Mr. Steber again. He had finished writing his book! Over the next several months, we worked together to transform his hand-written manuscript into the first book in the Preston Woods catalog: Seneca Sunrise: the Life and Times of Frederick Davis, Jr.
As for why the name Preston Woods was chosen? Everyone has a time and place from their past that when remembered brings nostalgic memories. For me, that place was a wooded lot in the small town of Preston, NY. Preston Woods represents a remembrance of good things gone by and places that will live on in our hearts and in our thoughts.
