Karen Hunter Publishing was founded in 2007, with the vision of providing a line of books that would enlighten, educate and entertain. Our out-of-the-box approach to publishing has allowed us to be at the forefront of the rapid-fire changes within the industry, allowing us to take our books and authors to new heights.
We have been an outlet for books that are sometimes too “left of center” for major houses and their conservative approach to publishing. Karen Hunter Publishing, which has produced several New York Times bestsellers in different genres, is a multi-platform business that provides a one-stop shopping forum for all book publishing-related activities.
We not only publish books, but also coordinate promotional activities, execute viral marketing campaigns, secure commercial endorsements, organize touring activities and provide writer management services.
Karen Hunter Publishing is not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time.
Karen Hunter Publishing is a part of the Suitt-Hunter Media Group
Suitt-Hunter works with celebrities and emerging artists, identifying opportunities to expand the individual's brand into ancillary markets. For example, we launched the “Patti Labelle Good Life” brand for superstar Patti LaBelle. In addition to a cookbook and instructional video, we produced a food and sauce line (www.pattilabellefoods.com), as well as a line of cookware, bedding and towels, which can be found in Macy's throughout the country. Ms. Labelle's sauces and marinades are sold in Wal-Mart, Publix, Kroger, Safeway, Winn Dixie and United Markets.
Television and Film: Suitt-Hunter develops television shows, including drafting treatments
and organizing pitch meetings. The company has executive produced The Salt-N-Pepa Show for VH-1, a celebrity styling show for Oxygen and Empire Girls, featuring former Cheetah Girls Adrienne Bailon and former co-host of BET's 106 & Park Julissa Bermudez.
