InnerLight Publishing Releases Second Book, The World Is Round by Nikky Finney

Atlanta, Georgia (August 19, 2002) - InnerLight Publishing, a small independent publisher based in Atlanta, Georgia, has teamed with poet Nikky Finney to publish her third collection of poetry. Finney, one of the premier poets of our time, has written a stunning volume of poetry entitled, The World is Round, to be published in January 2003 by InnerLight.

It has been eight years since Finney's last book, Rice, was published (Sister Vision Press, 1995). Of Rice, Poet Nikki Giovanni said, "Her voice is stronger, clear and yet more gentle than ever. I essentially think a meal should consist of meat and potatoes. After reading Finney I find myself longing for the smell, the taste, the comfort of rice." Finney's newest collection is a meal and more. In this phenomenal breakthrough book, Finney's voice is stronger and more personal and her use of language will prove to be important for students, poets and poetry lovers alike for years to come.

InnerLight Publishing has been operating in Atlanta for two years. The company's first book, The Venus Chronicles: Musings From the Feminine Side, achieved acclaim in its first printing. Although InnerLight is dedicated to publishing books written by African-American and/or women authors and poets, the company also considers works by people of all backgrounds, especially books with meaningful themes.

InnerLight Publishing was conceived as one of the first publishing houses to innovatively incorporate the author as a fundamental element of the production process. InnerLight is a premier publisher consistently building a reputation based on extreme quality and high integrity.
