My wife and I have started a new business which publishes stories of people who have been the most marginalized in our community. The business is called Peoples Voice Publishing. Last month we launched our first book which is titled “Recipes for Survival”. This book is a compilation of stories told by those who experienced out of home care such as foster care and institutionalized care. Some of the stories and poetry will make you laugh and cry.
We are planning a few books for next year but at the moment we are working towards publishing the stories of those people who have had their children removed from their care through child protection services. This is an opportunity for these people to tell of their experiences and how having their children removed has impacted them. We don’t expect people to have any great literacy talent because we understand that this a gift all may have but we are prepared to hear their stories and transcribe them if necessary or we will edit what they write but still maintain the integrity of the story.
If you would like to view the launch of “Recipes for Survival” please go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GLdQtpol-k for part one. Or go to my youtube channel ttonks51 for all the videos of the launch. This will give you some idea of what we will be doing with the next book.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
