WELCOME to my homepage!

I am an author, publisher, literary critic and producer with a passion. My workplace is the quarry of the word, and I am a colorful bird of paradise. As an author, I have published more than 40 books. Two of them became bestsellers, each selling more than a million copies.

As a publisher, I founded classic self-publishing in the German-speaking world with my publishing house under the slogan »Verlag sucht Autoren« (To the author in search of a publisher). Ten thousand authors entrusted me with their works to publish them in book form and they were happy.

As a literary critic with a sharp pen, I have been running Literaturzeitschrift.de platform since 2004 and work for daily newspapers and magazines.

As a producer of TV, stage and radio shows, I make hearts beat faster.

As a creative artist, I stand for surreal and fantastic themes.

Prince Rupi: Der Bücherprinz

My homepage offers articles, columns, interviews, reports, reviews, films, pictures, photographs and radio features that provide reading and listening pleasure for free.

In my life story »Der Bücherprinz«, I tell how a hippie became »Germany’s most colourful publisher« (DER SPIEGEL).

I like black humour, delicate German, positive thinking and I do love my readers: they are authentic, intelligent, thirsty for knowledge, curious, creative, open-minded, colourful and have a great sense of humour.

Sometimes I write electronic newsletters that you can order free of charge:
