look beneath the surface

The story of Iceberg Publishing dates back to July 1974 in Newfoundland, when a 14-year-old girl walks across Bellevue Beach with her father, picks up a piece of iceberg, and with him carries it home. Some 20 years later, after her father’s decade-long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, she writes his story, eventually entering negotiations with a literary agent who proceeds to secure a publisher. But there are sticking points, and when he says, “When you sign with me, I’ll own your father’s story,” she walks away. Iceberg Publishing – a family partnership – is officially formed on July 9, 2002.
