ABOUT US

After reading Wahida’s acknowledgments in her Essence bestselling novel, Thugs & The Women Who Love Them, many authors would write and ask, “How do I write a book? How can I get published?” Tired of handwriting the same answers, Wahida came up with “Wahida’s I Wanna Get Published Tip Sheet.”

Soon after, the manuscripts began to pour in and Wahida Clark Presents Publishing, LLC was born. WCP will be expanding into film in the near future. Wahida Clark is also the author of Every Thug Needs A Lady, Payback Is A Mutha, Enemy In My Bed, and Thug Matrimony.

The first of its titles and authors to be released is an anthology titled, Is It Hood Enough? This collection is filled with contributions from various prolific authors. The vision is loyalty to its authors and readers, integrity, and a promise to always release quality work along with compelling stories with memorable characters.
