We’re Publishing Strong Female Stories
We’re happy to let you know that we’re entering the world of publishing with strong female stories! We’ve helped writers publish their short stories, but now we’re helping them publish longer pieces with our publishing arm.
We’ve been in deep thought about what we want to publish. In honor of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s standing up for women, we’ve decided to focus on female characters that make us proud.
She’s not intimidated, fights for the little guy, can be a beacon of hope, sometimes she’s the underdog, and she’s still human with plenty of emotions and emotional connection.
And, our first published book will be a middle grade – Meg Goes to America, originally self-published by Katy Hammel and Gold Medal Award Winner of the Douglas Preston Award for Fiction. The Meg series (more coming soon) is a based on her mother’s experiences as a child during WWII in Japan and beyond.
Meg is going through some updates and edits and will be available in August. If you’d like to be first in line to purchase this book, or you want to know when we’ll have other great books for different ages available, sign up for our email list here: http://eepurl.com/dbLuC5 (you’ll also get a free ebook copy of our CEO’s novel, Toy of the Gods featuring Leslie Kicklighter.)
More about Meg Goes to America – Meg’s family must leave Japan as World War II approaches. Missionary families are no longer safe there. But Father is told he must stay behind. Can the family make it home to America without him? How will Meg adapt to life in the USA, which feels more foreign to her than Japan ever did? Can she make sense of the religious ideas she was taught as a child, to grow into the person she is meant to be?
