What's the Meaning of Fratire You Ask?

Fratire is a combination of the words fraternity and satire and a new genre of NON-fiction literature that uses in your face satire to make a sapient point—but from a tough love approach—that respects the fraternal kinship of human nature.

However, during the first decade of the 21st-century before Fratire Publishing existed, the fratire genre was a short lived and fictional one that generally featured male protagonists, usually in their twenties and thirties, characterized by masculine themes and considered the male equivalent of “chick” lit.

Ironically, none of those early fratire writers were fraternity men. However, I’m VERY MUCH a fraternity man from the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity, and also their 1985 Shideler Award winner for the most outstanding graduating senior in the USA.

I’m also a satirist—and laid claim to the title of “King of Fratire” when I started Fratire Publishing in 2012. Just ask Alexa. I did this by changing its image and focus with books like: “So You Want to Date My Daughter? A Father's Rulebook on the Do's and Don'ts for Dating His Little Princess” followed by two companion books, “Every Daughter Deserves a Gentleman” and “Every Son Deserves a Lady.”

Fratire Publishing is also the leader to make every month of April the National "Be a Gentleman and Be a Lady" Month Program. The goal of the program is to end sexual harassment, misogynistic behavior, bad manners, AND promote gentlemanly and ladylike virtues and qualities.

In 2020, I’m pleased to announce, Fratire Publishing’s new World of Writing Warriors (WOWW) Program with the goal of publishing 50 new MADNESS book titles over the span of this decade. To see what the MADNESS is all about—check out the 50 proposed titles on our website, on the WOWW Program page.

In summary, Fratire Publishing is all about common sense and relevant books for sapient beings. If this sounds like you and you can never have enough common sense, wisdom, and relevancy—you're in the right spot. Thanks for visiting and welcome to Fratire Publishing!
