70 West Press is a self publishing company started in 2010 by me, Lamont Clark.

My first book Family History! How to Turn Your Genealogy Into a Lasting Legacy wasn’t actually done until almost 18 months later, but the fact of the matter was that I actually wrote and published my own book.

I published several other titles later that year, mostly recipe books, and then I decided to turn my “Music Media 101” course into a book An Independent Musician’s Guide To: How to Make $100K in the Music Business Without a Record Deal . 

In 2013 I released my A Children’s Guide to the Origins of Hip Hop series (which includes books on MCs, DJs, B-Boys, and Graffiti), and in 2014 I released my first children’s fiction book Jay and the Genie .

I have plans to release several more children’s fiction books, and there are other ideas floating in my head, so we’ll see what else I come up with.

But just as important, I hope to encourage others to write and release their own works!
