New York, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
Throughout June, many high school seniors will graduate with the opportunity to attend college this coming fall. To celebrate this new chapter in their lives, Sullivan Street Press is offering a graduation special for the e-book version of Scags at 18. Regularly priced at $12.95, the e-book will be discounted to $5.95, the same price as the first book in the series, Scags at 7.
Scags at 18, follows Scags as she enters college at a pivotal time in history, the fall of 1969. Written in the form of a diary, readers follow Scags as she leaves home in Skokie, Illinois to attend college in Vermont on a full scholarship. Readers are taken through pivotal historical moments as Scags experiences the US release of the Beatles’ album “Abbey Road”, the anti-war march in D.C. against the Vietnam War and the first draft lottery based on the birthdays of all draft-eligible men.
“Scags at 18, although set in the fall of 1969, is a relevant book for high school graduates who will be leaving home for the first time this fall. Going off to college and moving away from home for the first time brings all about all kinds of experiences. We believe Scags at 18 is a book all young adults will be able to relate to as a coming of age story, which is why we chose it as our graduation special,” stated Deborah Emin, Founder of Sullivan Street Press.
Part of a 4-volume series about the awakenings of a woman to life, each volume of the Scags Series is told in a different first-person format. The four volumes represent different elements that make up a woman’s complete character.
The author of the series, Deborah Emin, is a writer, blogger and political junkie. Throughout her career she has done numerous things in pursuit of telling stories--she has hosted a reading series for her Queens neighborhood, been a campaign blogger for Dennis Kucinich’s 2008 presidential campaign and taught writing to over 1000 students.
About Sullivan Street Press:
Founded 3 years ago, Sullivan Street Press entered the e-publishing domain to change the publishing paradigm. It recognized that for both financial and environmental reasons it was necessary to advocate for the rise of the e-book and the technology that makes all things digital possible. Responding to readers’ concerns, many of whom aren’t yet ready to commit to the e-book revolution, SSP began to have its books published in Print-on-Demand format on the Espresso Book Machine at McNally Jackson Books in New York City. Then it reached out to On Demand Books, the parent company of the Espresso Book Machine, to be included in their world wide system of Espresso Book Machines. In furtherance of the digital side of its publishing mission, the Scags Series is also available as in iPad app, powered by MAZ Digital.
