As a micropublisher Bayla is dedicated to the proposition of passionate promotion, which is only possible through close attention to every facet of the publication process.
From conception, to layout, to marketing, Bayla carefully guides projects from concept to reality.
Why Bayla? In the early nineteen hundreds Bela Vitanyi passed through Ellis Island, and was asked his name. He responded "Bela" (pronounced "Bayla") which apparently sounded like "Bill", so it was declared that his name would henceforth be Bill, short for William. Apparently he approved, naming one of his sons William, which started a family tradition of sorts.
In an homage to Bela, my grandfather, the intrepid soul who lost his name at Ellis Island, and to phonics, I named my company Bayla Publishing. Welcome!

The Micropublisher Revolution
In the old days, before the revolution, large corporations determined what was published. Many great authors went undiscovered, victims of a literary consignment system that relegated most authors to invisibility.
Welcome to the revolution.
Now it is the reader who is the final arbiter. Under the new regime the success or failure of a book depends on the quality of the product and its effectiveness in connecting with the reader. Technological advances have transformed the publishing world, opening entreprenurial possibilities to aspiring authors everywhere.
Micropublishing is the creation, production, dissemination, and marketing of as few as one title, often one's own manuscript, under control of a very small publishing entity, often consisting of one person. A revolution reflects a desire for change, and in the case of book publishing, that change allows authors to take the matter of publishing into their own hands. Bayla endorses the revolution, and is a proud part of it.
The Other Revolution
Just as technology as opened the world of book publishing, it has also created an opportunity for app developers to compete with the giants of industry. All it takes is a great idea,and the technical expertise to implement it.
Enter Basic for Android, or B4A.
Basic for Android is software used for creating Android apps. The B4A language, like Visual Basic, is very English-oriented, and easy to learn. Installation and configuration is relatively easy, and allows for quick deployment of even complex apps, bringing professional app design to the individual entrepreneur.
