David Bergsland: 40 years experience
He has been teaching these materials since 1991: There are few people with his expertise—especially for the new breed of self-publishing authors. He has been self-publishing ebooks since 1996. He taught these materials at a large community college in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 1991–2005. Since 2009, he has been publishing full-time under the name Radiqx Press in Mankato, Minnesota. His focus is clear instruction about day-to-day production techniques & the practical needs of self publishers.
As a hippie in the late 1960s, and a graduate of the University of Minnesota with a BFA in Printmaking, he wears the title of Jesus Freak proudly. David has been an artist and designer since 1967 (as far as he can recall that far in the distant past).
He actually started his design career working for an occult publisher in St. Paul. He spent several wasted years as an ego-maniacal heathen fine artist until he found his true calling as a creative called by God to produce beauty for the kingdom.
That has not been a straight or easy path. Through the years he has tried many media, produced thousands of pieces (most that were pure trash) and taught hundreds of students practical graphic design & digital publishing in 2-year colleges.
In recent years he has pulled out of the public arena entirely. Though not a hermit, he is certainly a recluse, living in a small 2-story, brick home that is over a hundred twenty five years old on a tree-lined street in Mankato, Minnesota. Mainly he writes now, of his experiences and beliefs. Increasingly, he writes fiction.read more
