After recognizing a deficit in published literary works for men of color, Orie created the 100 Seeds of Promise Literary Initiative. 100 Seeds of Promise is a high impact, low-risk book publishing cohort that empowers participants to complete the process of writing, publishing and distributing their books to national and international markets. Established as a community of support offering engagement at every level of the publishing process, we believe that success is the only option for our authors.
Innovative in approach, 100 Seeds of Promise, cultivates strategies to alleviate pain points that result in writer’s block, and publishing and distribution errors giving participants a competitive edge in the industry. Graduates of 100 Seeds of Promise are fully equipped to market, sell and promote their published work, while making a residual stream of income and an impact in the world.
A Curated Brunch Experience
The King's Council founded by Celebrity Ghostwriter Ardre Orie is a curated brunch experience and meeting of the minds for men of color that facilitates a safe space for the exchange of stories and candid discussions about current events pertinent to the progression of the culture and elevation of the community. The Kings Council is the signature event honoring the authors of the 100 Seeds of Promise Literary Initiative and Powered by 13th & Joan Publishing House.
