lI have been hinting that I have been working on a number of things for my book. I can tell you I have immensely busy. But it’s such a good busy that I wake up excited to get to work. I have two jobs: lawyer by day, writer/entrepreneur by night.
We are finally at a stage that I can finally reveal to you….SugarCane Publishing.
SugarCane Publishing or SCP was created from the idea that all voices should be heard and given a platform to speak. Multicultural, multiracial, multisexual and the “non-normative” voice. As a minority owned publishing house, we taken this mission head on.
We already for two books set out for release in October. One written by the talented Gaudys Laxury, a Latina poet and artist who will be releasing her second book with SCP called “Life from A to Z” on October 7th. You can find more about her and her work on her website http://www.glaxarts.com.
And the other is yours truly. To be released October 1, I present to you “Awoke”:
I can not truly express the level of pride and love I have for this book and to be this far. Six years ago, I never thought I would be here opening my own publishing house and releasing two books so soon after opening up (with a couple of other projects coming down the pipeline). I am humbled. I am grateful for the support that I have. I have a fantastic editorial team who are the backbone of SCP and I couldn’t have done this without them.
The cover art is only one aspect of the kind of excellence we are going to be presenting the world. May the writing move you. May it be relatable. May you laugh. May you cry. And above all, may you been enthralled and escape the realities of this world and come into the world we created for you.
If you have a piece that you would like to present to us for consideration, we accept pieces with or without an agent, multitude of genres (fiction, non-fiction and poetry) and we will always give you a response. The only thing that we ask is that it must represent a voice that we wouldn’t normally see in media today. You can check out it more at http://www.sugarcanebooks.nyc.
