[Excerpt from Press Release]
The Niche, which now boasts 7 groups, (and still growing) is also possibly the first working example of Ujamaa, the Nguzu Saba principle of cooperative economics, (pronounced oo-jah-MAH), on the World Wide Web! The members, complete strangers before joining their new family, have pooled their dollars to compile and publish their first book entitled Come Into Our Whirl! (ISBN 0-9629202-6-6).

To commemorate the publication, Poets Niche members came from all over recently for The First Ever Poets Niche Book Signing and Offline Party in Atlanta, GA. They came from as far away as Toronto, Canada to meet the faces behind the words of fellow poets. It was a gathering that was attended by many including the Mayor of Union City, Georgia, who by official order, proclaimed August 6, 1999 as Poets Niche Day!

Read the exciting story of the creation of the Poets Niche, sample the creative, inspiring and entertaining poetic works of its members and discover how you too can be part of this life-changing group of visionaries who are changing the very meaning of what it is to be an artist in the new millenium!

"[Lessons in Success] is much more than I expected. I am fascinated by your journey and very familiar with some of the paths you have taken. There are a few books I have read in my life that have had a profound impact on me: How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World (Harry Browne); Winning Through Intimidation; The Prince (Machiaveli); The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin; The Art of War; Do What you Love and Money will Follow; As A Man Thinketh; You Just Don't Understand. I have a feeling your book may fall in a category with these. Thank you for sharing!" -Leon Capers, Jr.
