About Bayla

William R. Vitanyi

Welcome! My name is William R. Vitanyi, owner of Bayla Publishing. I authored the books, apps, and articles on this site, and created Bayla Publishing to assist in their publication.

Why Bayla? In the early nineteen hundreds Bela Vitanyi passed through Ellis Island, and was asked his name. He responded "Bela" (pronounced "Bayla") which sounded like "Bill", so it was declared that his name would henceforth be Bill, short for William. Apparently he approved, naming one of his sons William, which started a family tradition of sorts. Thus, in an homage to Bela, my grandfather, the intrepid soul who lost his name at Ellis Island, and to phonics, I named my company Bayla Publishing.

Featured: The Human Society

The Human Society at Amazon

Papillons are known for their intelligence, and Paps has taken this to a new level. Thanks to time spent in front of the tee vee, he can read many human words, and even understands some human tech. His humans treat him well, but he wants more.

One day Paps sees a building where dogs go in, but only humans come out, seemingly transformed. This chance to become human leads to an amazing but perilous canine journey to gain access to The Human Society. Along the way he will question the very meaning of Canine existence.
