Two Books, by October

If you found this website, you know we’re here to publish books (and thereby kick start a revolution in Louisiana literature). But, where are the books?

Our first title is called Tattoos and Tans, and as of this second week of March, it’s actually almost finished. Still, we’re going to give it a few months before we put it out. We’re thinking August.

Then in October–just ahead of All Saints Day and some in-person launch events we have planned around Lafayette–we’re going to publish our second title. It’s called All Saints Day of the Dead.

New Bayou Books is really just a handful of people, and even though we have a lot of skills between us–creative writing, visual arts, marketing and communication–we have never before initiated a large scale social revolution. So this is all kind of new to us.

One thing we’re learning is it’s a lot of work! We’re building websites, hacking the publishing industry, creating audio, networking, strategizing . . . all while producing the first two books. And those are just the projects that relate directly to launching New Bayou Books. There’s two other campaigns we need to launch soon. Maybe you can help.

  • Are you and animator? We have an intimation project that we need volunteer help with. Reach out think you can help.
  • Are you a writer? Our first two titles are written by the founder (a dude named Jason Reed), but this is only the beginning. We’re looking to quickly expand our roster. If you’re from Louisiana and you write, we want to read your stuff.

Meanwhile, consider enlisting in our army, or drop us a line at revolution@newbayoubooks.com

JR Reed started New Bayou Books to spark a revolution in Louisiana literature. The goal of the company is simple: to great writers out of the shadows to carry on the Louisiana literary tradition.
