Blackbone Books is a burgeoning publishing company created by Chicago born/LA Based writer Breeze Vincinz. Our goal is to promote "out of the box" stories with strong characters, narratives, and distinct points of view from authors of African descent. We ARE your grandmother's publishing company because she was a kick-ass woman with a ton of interesting stories, and we want to make sure they are all heard. When it comes to offering resources, original content, and support for Black authors, we're going to put our BLACKbone into providing quality literary material. 






We want to create a network of authors whereas we can share our work, commonwealth our experiences, and provide support for one another. We are in the process of creating a book club focusing on anomalous stories of Black life, and we also are looking for authors to add to our team. For more information to be in the know with updates, leave your contact information below, and we’ll keep in touch. Looking forward to hearing from you!


The Blackbone Book Club meets every 2nd Sunday of the month. We will discuss fiction and non-fiction titles that creatively address issues dealing with race, gender, sexuality, and politics in unconventional/unorthodox ways. All are welcome to attend with discussions lasting around an hour. A virtual experience, no more than five (5) participants will be allowed per meeting with questions and comments acknowledged from the audience at large during the course of the broadcast.

CANNABIS CUISINE: BUD PAIRINGS OF A BORN AGAIN CHEF We've had a hectic (yet productive) couple of months, so why not chill out a 'lil? We had such a successful run with our last cookbook selection; we decided to try it again. And since it's April, why not celebrate 420 on April 20th at 4:20 with a Cannabis Cookbook. For those of you who live in a state where cannabis legal, choose a recipe, make a dish and come join us for what is sure to be one of our more interesting and fun bookclubs EVA! Cannabis Cuisine is about the art of marijuana as an ingredient. It’s more than a cannabis cookbook. Like a fine wine, cannabis is meant to be paired according to its unique profile. With every dish, she looks to the textures, flavors and scents of the bud before masterfully pairing it with ingredients that transcend the dish. >> Purchase Book >> Bookclub SIgn Up (Facebook Group)

SOUL SERENADE: RHYTHM, BLUES & COMING OF AGE THROUGH VINYL We decided to let long-time supporter Dale Guy Madison choose our May selection, "Soul Serenade: Rhythm, Blues & Coming of Age Through Vinyl" by Rashod Ollison. An avid lover of music and biographies, this one of his favorite reads and one we're sure will stick with you far past the last page. Steeped in the sounds, the smells, the salty language of rural Arkansas in the 1980s, Soul Serenade is the memoir of a pop music critic whose love for soul music was fostered by his father, Raymond. In textured and evocative language, and peppered with unexpected humor, Soul Serenade is an original and captivating coming-of-age story set to an original beat. >> Purchase Book >> Bookclub SIgn Up (Facebook Group)
