We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

Wakiem Freeman ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Harlem-born author, Wakiem Freeman began his writing career as a songwriter in 1994. After a chance meeting with legendary singer Baby face, Waken decided to put his dream on hold on entering the industry after being told there were no roster spots on Edmonds Entertainment. While laid off from his job as an engineer at investment bank Solomon, Smith & Barney, Wakiem decided he didn't like getting up everyday and going to work for someone else any longer. He wanted to be his own boss, thus in 2006 he cut his life savings in half and formed Apricot Books International and self-published his debut novel 'No One To Blame'. Freeman is proclaiming that he is 'New King of Urban Literature'. I'm the heart of the street, I've seen, and been thru things unimaginable to the human eye. Look at the cover. I was twenty one years old. A neighborhood superstar!

The day Keith Lawrence drug addicted mother discovers that the government put five cents currency on all bottles and cans, marked the end of his childhood. Despite a horrific upbringing while in a group home excels in his school work though his teenage years, and receives a full scholarship to New York University, only to fall miserably and be sentenced to the "slave camps" disguised as prisons. Upon his release, he moves in with his brother's ready made family. Keith finds his soul mate; only to find out she's a fifteen year old runaway

"NO ONE TO BLAME" Wakiem Freeman invokes his knowledge of the depths of hell society calls the "ghetto" and creates one graphic, harrowing journey for the reader to become submerged in the life of a troubled child turned teenage convict. However, no matter what the obstacles, Wakiem shows that we do make our own decisions and we have countless opportunities to go down a road of destruction or veer off to the more advantageous road. Thus, for our life and death, no one is to blame.
