Books from Oasis is the new publishing venture from environmentalist turned novelist Cinzia De Santos which aims to publish books from Venezuelan authors here in London.
Cinzia explains that the project started because she was getting frustrated waiting for agents or publishers to answer her submissions. “Writing to me is more an inevitability than a commercial activity. So I decided to create my own mini publishing company”. Through Books from Oasis, Cinzia has published her first novel, El sentido de la oscuridad, as well as an English translation, The Sense of Darkness.
Consequently, a friend with experience of publishing books in Venezuela suggested to her that she use her company to offer an international platform to other Venezuelan authors who face real difficulties getting their books distributed abroad because of strict currency controls.
Any authors wanting more information should contact Cinzia at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is currently building a website which will have more information.
