a little about us...
Wide Eyes Publishing is focused on publishing the works of diverse men and women who want to raise hell with their truths. We intend to use this platform to amplify the voices of the marginalized, and unlike most big publishers, build authors from the ground up.

about jean - the CEO + founder
As an author, I want to be backed by someone who I can rely on to help spread my message. I want to be backed by someone passionate, not just deadline anxious. I want inclusiveness, not catered-to-one-type-of-person-ness. I want marginalized, I want truth. I don't want sugarcoated pain, a picture framed with the romanticism of the mentally ill. I don’t want to have the same story as everyone else, sitting daintily on the shelves of Barnes and Nobles, next to every other Milk and Honey copycat — I want original. So I decided to create my own publishing house. Wide Eyes is a publishing house for badass, marginalized peoples that want their voices to be heard. Not softly, not with “poise,” but with passion and resilience. With hunger. It's for those who wish to raise hell with their truth. More than ever, we need the truth. We need awareness, we need understanding, but most importantly, we need compassion. I am passionate about spreading these truths, as spreading mine is what has liberated me from a life of pain and suffering. I want our readers to be able to genuinely connect, and not feel alone in this world.
