Trailblazing E-book Publisher TheWriteDeal Releases High-Octane Memoir by New York Daily News Reporter

Sushi and Black-eyed Peas: An All-American Memoir by Bill Hutchinson Introduces a Fiercely Unique Voice to American Writing, Further Expands Popularity of the TheWriteDeal Trademarked e-leaf Series.

New York, March 28, 2012 --- New York Daily News reporter Bill Hutchinson’s rollicking coming-of-age tale, Sushi and Black-eyed Peas, takes us into Steinbeck country in the era of Cesar Chavez. Here Bill began life as the youngest son of an Okinawan mother and a Black, Irish, Cherokee father who sometimes masquerades as Mexican. His fire-and-brimstone grandparents had their work cut out saving the souls of his Shinto mom, alcoholic dad and two renegade brothers. In a darkly humorous and fiercely unique narrative voice, the author explores how one American boy makes it out of the melting pot alive.

The publication of veteran newsman Hutchinson’s memoir into TheWriteDeal’s e-leaf series marks underlines the upstart publisher’s growing popularity among writers and readers alike. The company defines e-leafs as  “digital excerpts from original unpublished works”.

“An e-leaf is a digital missive from writers directly to their readers — a recently living, breathing work in progress or part of a whole,” says Managing Editor Kyra Ryan. “TheWriteDeal releases e-leafs to support the creative process of talented writers, delighting readers with writing that’s fresh, energetic, and close to the source.”
