Welcome . . .
Richard C. Lindberg
I have been writing professionally for more than 30 years with 15
published volumes of non-fiction in print, all dealing with aspects
of Chicago city history, politics, sports, ethnicity, and urban
I have shared my personal and professional background
with additional insight into the world of book writing, agents,
and publishing as I have known it all of these years in the various
articles I have posted to this site
You will also find a collection of my writings, information about
my published books and how to order them, personal thoughts, reflections
on childhood and further observations about the business of book
Your comments, questions and suggestions are always welcome. However,
because of time constraints and a hectic schedule of writing, working
and speaking to libraries and membership groups I can no longer
respond to specific requests asking me to read and evaluate sample
chapters of manuscripts sent to me by writers looking to break into
print, or individuals soliciting advice or wanting me to network
them with publishers and agents. The articles you will find on the
site candidly address some of the publishing pitfalls and industry
issues and should be of some help for prospective book authors.
For other questions or comments, please send me an e-mail.
I appreciate your interest in my work and I value
your friendship and support.
Richard Carl Lindberg,
