A Tiny Spotlight

The owner of Proper Publishing has battled extensive health issues over the last ten years, with multiple surgeries, and an enormous amount of medication taken daily just to keep her barely functioning. 

It's safe to say we were all concerned with the increase in the time she was spending in hospitals and convalescing.

We're proud to say she has her health back, finally, and is slowly tapering off the ridiculous amount of medication she has been prescribed over the years.

Mrs. Lewis is beyond important to all of us and although she demands the spotlight remain on the authors, we feel it's imperative we acknowledge the strides she's made by showcasing a sister site she's created on her own. Again, she has tried to keep it separate from her job but leave it to us to sneak a tiny spotlight onto her...and pray we don't get fired when she finds out. She's trying to help others who struggle the way she did for so long. How can we not help this woman?

Please visit her site, ask questions, get information from her... and show her the love she so readily heaps on everyone else. Thank you so much, in advance, for helping us give back to this very humble woman who has dedicated her life to giving to everyone else.

And thank you for helping us, again.

Silent but BEYOND busy!

 We realize that our site has been silent for several months and it might appear to an outside observer that our business might be struggling. However, nothing could be further from the truth. We have come to the startling realization that we must turn clients away due to a staggering workload. 

If COVID19 has proven anything, it is that an isolated artist is a busy artist, which means WE are now almost literally drowning in work. Which, in turn, has led to a critical shutdown of all things non-essential (especially ironic given our circumstances) one of which has been regular site posts. 

Please forgive the silence but we hope you understand that it has been done for our own emotional wellness. We must prioritize and our loyal clients come first. Once we get them taken care of, we will open our services up, once again, to new clients and will update the site.

If you have questions that need to be answered now, please reach out via email (theproperpublisher@yahoo.com) and we'll respond as soon as possible. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your patience and kind messages of concern. We adore you all and keep writing and reading!

"Talking to the Night" by Ora Wills

The majority of our clients publish stories that leave you in awe, however there is one client in particular that continues to make us so proud to simply be associated with her name.
Ora Wills is that client.
Aptly named the 'patron saint of the arts' in Pensacola, she has left an indelible mark on hundreds, if not thousands of young writers during her decades teaching English at Tate High School and her volunteer projects throughout the city, including Arts Quest.
Her latest book is a poetic journey from a young girls perspective, HER perspective in the South during the Jim Crow years. Heartbreaking while being both bitter and bittersweet, she chronicles in the most beautifully tender way, a child's innocence shattered by the murder of a family member. This is a MUST HAVE for every household struggling to find a way to teach young adults about tolerance. Order your copy HERE.

Poetry Contest Postponed

We are absolutely crushed to announce that we have had to postpone our poetry contest. 
Covid-19 threw a MASSIVE wrench in the contest. Our educators were caught off-guard and had to scramble to teach children via the internet and our students had to navigate a new way of learning.

Due to this, we have had to postpone any publication for the submissions received.

Our world is experiencing something quite unique. 
We are considering a publication specifically for this event. 
Please stay safe, be respectful of those who are compromised, and KEEP WRITING!!
