    InnerVision Books

    Ran a search and nothing came up.
    http://innervisionbooks.com/
    InnerVision Books (e-book publishers) strives to bring new and old voices together with stories that need to be told. The editorial staff of InnerVision Books look for cutting edge stories that entertain as well as enlighten. Our list includes erotica, contemporary and literary fiction, maintream fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. The underlying theme of InnerVision Novels ideally will be to encompass the sphere of multiculturalism in a global society. (See guidelines). Currently InnerVision Books is an e-book publisher and the books are easily downloadable directly to your computer or e-book reader. In the future we plan to bring these and other books into Trade Paperback format.

    Saw this mentioned on Mrs Giggles blog. She says that Donna Hill is one of the co-founders.

    Another case of authors thinking setting up a publishing company is easy?

    They're pretty specific about what they want.

    Our vision for our fiction, both literary and contemporary fiction, is to create a new genre which we call "Reality Fiction." These stories encompass cross-cultural topics such as societal, familial, religious, political concepts, no matter the genre. Main character: one must be African American the other must be of a different ethnic group. Characters must be taken out of their comfort zones, i.e. African American who finds themselves involved with an Amish character... how the two lifestyles clash but evolve making them evolve as well. Example: "Witness" featuring Harrison Ford, i.e. and African American character who finds themselves forced to confront someone with HIV when their mindset has been pure homophobic Example: "Philadelphia." An African American who has moved from their day to day setting to live in another country or community.

    Stories should reflect the slow but steady homogenization of the races. They must reflect the current times and how people of different cultures, beliefs and religious affiliations affect their behavior and decisions.
