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… ❤
