& Publishing

& Publishing was founded december 2004 when a musician was sitting on first row, all the way back in the orchestras percussion group, and wondered about how a teddybear ended up in a concert hall.

The children's book; The Teddybook - how Teddy ended up in the concert hall, was the first book to be released.

Today more than a twenty books have been published, from children's book to ancestry book and fiction. 

Welcome, hope you find something that suits you.

A goal- and planning calendar started to develop in 2016 and in November 2018 we even released this calendar which the same musician and percussionist is using himself to better achieve his goals and dreams in this life.

Recent release, 25 August, 2023; Studies for snare drum & The Drumming Tradition of Sweden.

Hemmanet Trons har gått i samma släkts ägo sedan en lång tid tillbaka. Tore Svedlund besökte Trons i mitten av 1970-talet och träffade Ella Svensson som då bodde ensam i huset. Ella tog fram många gamla handlingar som visade sig vara av stort värde.

Det var Pehr Jonsons inrikespass från 1830 för att få fara till Sala för att få sälja smör, fågel och skinn. I samlingen fanns även bouppteckningar, arrendekontrakt för lantbonden 1840 och lagfart / fastebrev för Jonas Persson daterat Nilsvallens Tingsställe 21 februari 1851. Dessutom flera personalia, dvs. levnadsberättelser, om Pehr Jonsson och Ella Embriksdotter.

Tack vare dessa handlingar och Frans Järnankars och Arne Elfqvists forskning har vi fått en bra bild av hur Trons förfäder har haft det.

2020 Q - goal and planning calendar

Have been privileged to publish a goal- and planning calendar, 2020 Q, that I am using myself.

Have during a few years develop this goal- and planning calendar which helps me to keep me on track, by planning my time towards my personal dreams and goals in life.

With this calendar you can see your own progress and shortcomings more clearly, which helps you to keep moving forward in life. Even when life feels like it is falling a part. Well, it helps even more then, really, to keep you moving forward.

This through the knowledge that you have more goals and dreams in front of you, that you want to see being reached or fulfilled.

And yes, the calendar is in physical form because the mental aspect of writing longhand strengthens concentration and increases our probability to reach our goals - drastically.

So, feel free;

A GOOD LIFE - first wrong then right 

Josef Abram grew up in a small town with a hard working single mother, drow himself deep down in a pit in life and asked for help - and found it. And it was greater then he ever could imagine.

The clock said 00.30 and it knocked on the door. Josef got up suprised from the bed. "That is weird, everbody knows that I sleep at this time at night. Yes, even on Fridays." He got dressed and put on his cap to try to hide his head that now only had a few hairs left. This had been going on a few years and started in the beard with small empty spots. Now, all facial- and head hair was gone. Even eyebrows, eyelashes and some gone on arms, legs and chest.

Josef opened the door and there were his landlord, and closest friend too, through these turbulent years. The landlord said; "Now, take your clothes off." "What," Josef thought, "what in the world is this?". Quickly he closed the door and locked it, even though the landlord lived next door with keys and everything.

It was time. "That is enough".
"The story of Josef Abram and his turning point in life, has helped me a lot personally and I hope that it also reaches you, dear readers."

LILLFJÄTEN & Nilssonsläkten i bilder

Har länge tänkt skriva ner och samla bilder från Lillfjäten för att Per-Hannes och mina barn och barnbarn ska veta lite om bygden och släkten de härstammar ifrån. En liten by i härlig fjällmiljö som gett oss många härliga, sköna dagar i såväl sommar- som vintertid.

Boken handlar alltså om delar av Lillfjäten med Joles-syskonen från början av 1900-talet, men mest om Nilsson släkten.

Många kort har jag fått låna av familjen Nilsson, Britt-Marie ”Bibbi” Jemt, Kerstin Person, Gudrun Kahn och av Esbjörn Henrikssons Joles Jonas Olssons bilder.

KOLSÄTT - min by i bilder

Under 1980-talet väcktes mitt intresse för gamla bilder i Kolsätt, byn där jag föddes under andra världskriget. Gick runt i gårdarna och fick se många bilder från svunna tider.

Byborna berättade om saker som hänt i byn, som var helt nytt för mig. Om färjans betydelse, fabriken, båten Prins Bernadotte och mycket mer.

Bilderna har visats på två utställningar på medborgarhuset i Sveg och finns nu här även i bokform.
