After 14 years in Berkeley, independent publisher Fearless Books has relocated to the Napa Valley. Founded by magazine journalist and author D. Patrick Miller in 1997, Fearless created the Fearless Poetry Series of anthologies, whose second volume, “Touching: Poems of Love, Longing, and Desire,” won three independent publishing awards in 2011, a news release said.
Since its move to Napa, Fearless is also pursuing opportunities to write and publish for the wine industry, the release said. Miller was the principal editor of Rod Smith’s book “Private Reserve,” the 2000 Commemorative Edition celebrating the centennial of Beaulieu Vineyards.
“I’m interested in helping smaller wineries develop their own ‘business biographies’ that can create commercial distinction in a crowded marketplace,” Miller said.
