Featured: The Human Society

Papillons are known for their intelligence, and Paps has taken this to a new level. Thanks to time spent in front of the tee vee, he can read many human words, and even understands some human tech.

His humans treat him well, but there is a divide, an unspoken gap between him and them. They are one, and he is seperate. This gap is unbridgeable. Until now.

One day Paps sees a building where dogs go in, but only humans come out. He identifies the facility as The Human Society, and he begins an amazing journey that leads him to question the very meaning of Canine existence.

About Bayla


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! Read more thoughts of an author.

Write and Publish a Book

Welcome to the micropublishing 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. 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. This is possible due to awesome technological advances, now available to everyone. Learn more in our article at HubPages.

Make Money Writing Articles

You may spend most of your writing time engaged with a novel, play, or essay, but the financial return on any of these is uncertain at best. In the meantime, consider writing articles in the form of Hubs at HubPages. This is a free writing community where you create short articles (around 1200 words) which pays you when readers click on ads. You don't set up the ads, that's automatic. It's fairly easy and actually does generate cash flow. Learn more in our article at HubPages.

How to Create Android Apps

For the more technically inclined, creating apps for Android may be something you've wanted to do, but didn't know where to start. Basic for Android, or B4A, is a free Android development suite that can have you writing simple to complex apps in quick order. Based on the Visual Basic programming language, this Rapid Application Design package is widely used and has a robust user community with helpful information. Learn more in our article at HubPages.


Retirement is the Beginning

Office Wellness

My name is William R. Vitanyi, and I am the author of several books, and the owner of Bayla Publishing. My latest novel is The Human Society, a dramatic yet humorous account of one dog's perilous journey of canine discovery. See the Human Society page.

After thirty years working as a programmer for the State of Pennsylvania, I am now retired and focused on writing and publishing. The programmer in me wants to write apps as well as novels, so retirement looks to be quite busy. Stay tuned for more thoughts of an author!

Thought of an author #1. Although this section is called thoughts of an author, I am also a publisher. Can one person do it all when it comes to writing and publishing a book? Yes! There is a lot to learn, but if you forge ahead with determination and a willingness to learn, you can do it all. The question is: do you want to?
