Welcome! My name is William R. Vitanyi, owner of Bayla Publishing. The books, apps, and articles on this site are my own, and I created Bayla Publishing, and this site, 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
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 there is a divide, an unspoken gap between him and them. They are one, and he is seperate. This gap is unbridgeable. Until now.
One day Paps sees a building where dogs go in, but only humans come out. He identifies the facility as The Human Society, and he begins an amazing journey that leads him to question the very meaning of Canine existence.
