About

There are millions of people incarcerated in the United State and within that population there are many good and talented people with many interesting stories to tell.  Without a forum or an opportunity, those stories can be lost to the ages. 

My goal is to help these inmates-cum-storytellers who have dedicated themselves to improve themselves and have taken the time to write stories to share with the world.  Both fiction and non-fiction, the chance to see their work in print can change the thinking and perspective of the readers as well as the lives of the writers themselves.

Getting these authors published can help provide them with a source of income while in prison and after their release,thereby helping to reduce the recidivism rate allowing these people to return to society and lead fulfilling, productive lives.

I  have first hand experience with this issue.  That's because I  was once an inmate myself at a federal institution. While i was incarcerated I rediscovered my childhood love for writing and began writing again while in jail. Since my release i have written and published my first book and am currently in the middle of completing my second. I am also a current blogger and manage my own web-based enterprise.

As you can imagine, being incarcerated is tough but it can also force you to make new choices Sometimes those choices can and will determine the person you will become going forward. Writing and publishing a book from prison is impossible without some form of outside support and I know the frustration of having all these thoughts in your head but with no real outlet to share them.

That's why I made the choice as a free man to be an outlet for others who make the good choice of writing and sharing their mind but are or might be prevented by concrete or other barriers both seen and unseen.

Le me tell you a little about the manuscripts i wish to get published.

The first: A comedic crime novel.

Two bumbling goons were tasked with killing a member of a rival gang and getting rid of the body.  The though they did but later found out that they had actually killed the head of a major crime family. With the realistic fear of being marked for death themselves after killing this crime boss, they used a permanent marker to desecrate his body in some really offensive ways. Of course they left the marker at the crime scene which the cops found, of course. The rest of the story details all of the foolish things these two goons did in an effort to retrieve that permanent marker from the police before they had a chance to check for DNA and fingerprints as well as the length they went to cover up their involvement in the crime.

The Second Book:

A novel about a man (Mr Brown) who spent most of his life in prison,and during that time how he spent his days trying to find himself, trying to figure out exactly who he really was. Fast forward many years and its time for him to go before the parole board for a possible release.

Here the plot thickens with all the witnesses from within the prison who all thought they knew Mr Brown well.  Each and every one of them giving very different and conflicting accounts of who he is.  I wish I could say more but I don't want to spoil the story for you.  To find out how the story unfolds you'll have wait for your copy.

The Third Book:

A book based on the "27 club" that so called club named after the group of famous celebrities who all died at the age of 27. The most famous members  include  Amy Winehouse (the most recent inductee ),Kurt Cobain,Janis Joplin,Jimmy Hendrix,Brian Jones,Jim Morrison and others.

There are several other works about this so-called club and the topic has been widely covered over the years. However this book eliminates the entertainment aspects of the individual members and instead focuses on the club itself. For example it shows all the members of the club, which number well over fifty people or more,but more importantly the book tackles the subject of whether these people all died at the age of 27 by coincidence or were they all coded to die at that age through fate.

Was it their destiny to die at that age?.The author attempts to answer this question using the mu-ji-man codes system,(see his earlier work The Mu-ji-man Codes). In this book you will see his detailed study of all the members of this so called club, both famous and not so famous,as he shows you where they were all coded for the age of "27" within their date of birth as well as their name of birth.The book also covers some other very famous celebrities such as Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Paul Walker and countless others. 

Each entry is detailed showing their age of death and coded age all pre-coded into their date of birth and name of birth. Whether you are a believer in faith or coincidence you will find this book a fascinating read. The author also encourages you to do the math for yourself and shows you how in this book.

Risks and challenges

I do realize that there are delays and challenges with any project but I am uniquely qualified to handle any such challenges with this project because of my current and past experience of successfully completing book projects.

I only work with industry professionals and industry leaders such as CreateSspace (an Amazom.com company) to facilitate the necessary services such as editing, interior layout ,book cover design and the physical printing of the books as well as distribution.

Once the funding is secured I expect that this project will be completed by the 15th of August and I will be able to begin shipping rewards about a week later.

the big challenges will be to actively market the books once they are published,I am putting together a website and a detailed marketing campaign to accomplish my goal.I am very confident that i am adequately equipped to handle any obstacles that may come my way in terms of bringing this project to a successful completion
