About Us

In 2012, in South East Asia an idea was born- an idea for a new kind of publishing company, one that transcends the globe and pushes new authors into an international spotlight.

We began doing our research. We discussed the pros and cons. We went through the various uphill battles we would face. We knew it wouldn’t be easy or quick and it wouldn’t come cheap. But when it was said and done…BH Publications was born.

Gordon RossGordon Ross

Gordon Ross is an international businessman and entrepreneur.  He is a proud Scotsman, born and raised on the outskirts of Edinburgh, who has extensive experience in the oil and gas industry and corporate operations, management and restructuring.   He holds several Senior executive positions for international companies in Singapore, Thailand and Korea.  He is a leading international expert in clad and pipe technology.

Throughout his life, Gordon has looked for challenges that would test his mettle as an entrepreneur and enrich and enlarge his world.  He came to understand from Cali Dawson, an author and literary editor, about the struggles of so many gifted writers to get published and has decided to do something about it.  He and Cali have created Bleeding Heart Publications – a traditional "old school" publishing house that values personal relationships with individual writers while still taking advantage of 21st Century technologies and marketing.  Gordon has created a team of dedicated professionals to find, support and publish important “new voices” in the literary world.  He currently lives in Thailand, owns and operates several companies and travels the world constantly.  He also spends a lot of time thinking about his two favorite pastimes - playing golf and flying helicopters.
