Who We Are:
The Leeric Publishing Group is an amalgam of creative talent formed by a wordsmith and a musician technical expert who were drawn together by their mutual love of music.
Welcome to Leeric Publishing. As an African American Author, I found there was a void in the world of publishing. Black authors were being under represented and had been practically ignored by parts of the publishing community. In fact, at the last publishers conference not ONE black author was represented in the young teen category.
We at Leeric Publishing have made it our mission to remedy this situation. Our books are for the life and times we live in NOW! They provide young black Americans as well as Latino, white and all other nationalities with substantive books, music and drama designed to light a fire in their desire to read and fulfill their potential for the arts and learning.
Young Black America is starving for heroes. Black Americans are pouring close to a trillion dollars a year into the American economy. This puts it on the verge of surpassing the gross national product of Mexico! Of these trillion dollars, Black people spend 2.7 billion on entertainment and millions on literature each and every year with the numbers growing. Although still in its infancy, the Leeric Publishing Group LLC was created to provide those who love to read with stories and those who love to tell them with help and guidance. No degree necessary; just be talented. Let’s kick this door down together. Let’s give young Black America the heroes it needs.
Now and into the future, it is the aim of Leeric Publishing Group to discover and bring to the general public the hidden gems of the urban community as well as from the world at large. Through the medium of pictures and words, written or sung, Leeric Publishing Group strives to represent the plethora of talent that stretches from the projects to the plains.
