Emerging Proud Press closes its chapter

We are sad to announce that our not-for-profit publishing arm of the campaign, Emerging Proud Press has officially closed.

With the first 4 Pocket Books of Hope and Transformation being created in a publishing frenzy in 2019, the impact of Covid-19 on our funding stream meant that we were unable to progress as planned with the next 4 books of the series. Despite this, through generous donations and royalties from initial sales, we were able to distribute over 500 free books worldwide to spread messages of hope to people in need.

Valiant efforts from the Eye Inspire Rep, Yvette and the Muslim Pocket Book team to raise funds to publish their own books, meant that we held the hope of keeping the company open to offer budding Authors the opportunity to publish and keep 100% of their royalties.

Eye Inspire, Emerging Proud through Eye Sight Loss will continue to be available HERE

Muslims Emerging Proud through Mental Distress will continue to be available HERE

The first 4 books in the series will unfortunately no longer be available for sale.

We do, however, have a small stock of books left, which we’d like to make available for free to any Mental Health support facilities / organisations / charities – please get in touch if you’d like to be sent a few complimentary copies.

We are so very proud of, and grateful to all of the incredible ‘Emergees’ who bravely shared their personal stories in order to support others going through similar challenges … this project was successful thanks to you all, and we believe that the ripples will continue long after our door has closed.

As one door closes… ❤

    Hello, Tessa had sent me your information. I work at a community mental health center in Broomfield, CO and I was hoping you could send us a few of each of your materials that we could have in our lobby. This would be helpful in reducing stigma and normalizing having mental health challenges. Susan

    Awe, sorry to hear that.🙁 I have a copy of NOTEs & I guess the original book which was SO helpful to me. I thought it was a brilliant idea, easy, short reads, could identify with aspects of a lot of what those people experienced. I know there are not always many comments here but I am grateful to everyone that participated in any way with those books. I am not Muslim or have vision problems other than glasses, but I still read & was moved by those stories when you would post them here. I hope they continue to reach those that need them the most.
