Soulful Reads/Ordinary People

Author Nate Holmes, in the middle, with fans
As much as I like blogging about people that everyone knows about, I also like to highlight some hidden talent. That special person that captured my attention for today is author Nate Holmes. Check out information about this author below.

Written by Author Nate Holmes

Nati Holmes is the founder and owner of Hustle Hard Publications. Mr. Holmes is an author, poet and activist for inmates. With the release of Mr. Holmes' debut novel, "Can't Knock the Hustle", the idea was born to start his own publishing company that would also seek to assist men and women in prison with the opportunity at exposure for their work.

Mr. Holmes has three authors under the banner of Hustle Hard Publications and is seeking other writers to add to the publishing house.

It was while incarcerated on a five year penitentiary bid that Mr. Holmes stumbled upon his own gift as a writer. Having no financial support from family or friends on the outside to provide for his daily needs, he entered a short story writing contest. Holmes was awarded third place in "The Hear Me Project HIV/AIDS campaign 2006 contest" which inspired him to write a full novel.

After only two months, Holmes completed his first full length manuscript and was given encouragement from some heavyweights in the book industry such as his beloved brother Jihad, Anthony Whyte, Michel Moore, Linda Brickhouse, and Randy Kearse.

Nati Holmes decided to take his destiny into his own hands and established Hustle Hard Publications. So please enjoy the ride and witness the greatest underdog story unfold before your eyes as Nati Holmes fights his way to the top of the literature food chain bringing some of the hottest and thrilling writers of urban fiction along for the ride!

The type of books I write is sort of like self help for people in the struggle. It offers alternatives to the streets by allowing the reader insite to things such as SBA loans, how to go about getting funding for school, and how to buy your first home through programs such as HUD. It gives this message through a very fascinating storyline. 

On Dec 7, 2010 Nati Holmes signed a major book deal with Augustus Publishing. Be on the lookout this upcoming year for more heat from this exciting new author.
