Represented authors get to select their charity and either donate all the money to the charity or do a 50/50 split, so the author gets 50% of the royalties.
It warms my heart that most the contracted authors, current and future, have generously donated all the proceeds to a charity of their choice. That is part of the way we make a better world possible.
On My Spoken Word Wife: Playing for Keeps: "The streets are mean, but the gentle heart of a poet conquers the rage and puts it on the page. Beat by beat, the poetry unfolds and reveals visions from a shaman’s heart. The Sacred Poet is back, and he’s got your back. The Ancestors speak truth and sing through Juarez’s words and declarations of freedom and liberation. " -Josefina López Author of Real Women Have Curves & Artistic Director of Casa 0101 Theater
