A Modern Approach to Publishing
This is a new day and age where independant author's are publishing their own works.
Black Cotton Publishing offers an innovative publishing style that caters to independent author's.
You've worked hard to complete your project, why give up the rights to your work if you don't have to?
Although we publish your first and/or second piece of work, we serve more as a consultant. There is not not one piece of the planning, development or publication processes that you are not hands on involved in. Our goal is to provide clients with the tools, resources and confidence to build their own publishing company and to share what they have learned with others.
You've written it, now let us help you share it with the world.

Established in 2013 as a division of Black Cotton LLC, Black Cotton Publishing was created to make sure that written words, by independant author's, are read and shared with the world.
Owner and author, Tomeekha Pitre, knows what it's like to have creative works sitting and not knowing what to do next. Instead of waiting, she decided to do it herself; and that she did in 2013 with the publication of, Black Cotton, by artist and business partner, Rasta Escott EL. Published in 2013, Black Cotton is the first title published under the Black Cotton Publishing brand.
The Black Cotton project was no walk in the park. Tomeekha and her team aquired plenty of lessons learned, which was applied to her second project, Earth's Quiet Chaos.
She's paved the way for newcomers and the shy ones. With each new project there is much to learn and many areas to improve upon. She's done the work, she's shared her successes, failures, learning lessons, and now she's ready to share everything she's learned with you.
Take and hold on to her, ever gentle, hand and let her show you how to find your way in the world of visual art and literary publication.

By Tomeekha Pitre
Earth’s Quiet Chaos is set in a historically significant community in Los Angeles, California. Earth Hartley is an African American businesswoman whose life is consumed by caring for her older sister, Moon, and trying to save Moon from the consequences of her careless behavior and substance abuse.
Moon is paranoid, violent, erratic, and irrational. She thrives in her life of chaos, and has no regard for the pain it causes her family.
Ra, their brother, is the lifeline between his two sisters. He’s the glue that holds the family together until a horrible and violent act results in Moon’s arrest.
The story of Earth’s Quiet Chaos is about finding and holding onto true love while dealing with family issues that are considered to be taboo in the African American community, but are relatable to all.
