How We Do It Wednesday EXCLUSIVE! Host: Mz MindFull Jordan, interviews NEW YORK TIMES-Best Selling Author: OMAR TYREE
Omar Tyree's BIO: After transferring to Howard University in Washington, DC, where he graduated from the School of Communications with a degree in Print Journalism, Tyree worked as a reporter and writer to make ends meet, before deciding to borrow money from family and friends to start his own publishing company, MARS Productions. Using the bare living room of his one-bedroom apartment in Hyattsville, Maryland as a storage facility, Tyree sold more than twenty-five thousand copies of his books on Greyhound bus trips, before buying a Ford Probe hatchback, where he could distribute ten boxes of books from his car to sell at book events and book stores.
After developing a cult following in the Mid-Atlantic region from Virginia Beach to New York City, Tyree continued to write a book a year and develop a mostly word-of-mouth marketing campaign that eventually led to the doors of publishing powerhouse Simon & Schuster. Tyree then became—at age twenty-six—one of the youngest authors of the explosive 1990s to sign four consecutive book deals worth millions of dollars.
Tyree is currently optioning and producing several of his early titles as stage plays, television shows and feature films. But he is most excited by this long-awaited opportunity to develop The Traveler series with Koehler Books from the ground up with No Turning Back in ebook form this January 2013, before releasing the first traditional title, Welcome to Dubai next fall.
