Southern Fried Karma

Southern Fried Karma Southern Fried Karma, an independent publisher based in Newnan, GA, seeks to broaden Southern culture though inclusiveness, diversity, & recognition of individual experiences.

SFK currently produces novels, audiobooks, & The New Southern Fugitives zine. The path for an artist to reach a wider audience is no longer exclusively controlled by corporate gatekeepers measuring each choice purely by its economic return. So for practical purposes, our hopes, dreams and aspirations are for Southern Fried Karma to be a multi-media production company developing projects in music, films and books.

“[I]t is safer to hide or contort your life to make it more palatable for mass consumption. But I have suffered enough in my life.”

“We Cannot Leave Our Truths for Dead: Why I Chose to Change My Name and Modify My Pronouns” by Sloane Kali Faye is a stirring personal essay about how one person went from hiding her/their truth to finding freedom through Black feminist theory.

“follow my hand, my mother’s hand, her mother’s hand. the underground. the patchwork.”

Edythe Rodriguez’s poem, “freedom cartography,” starts off with an auntie struggling to do the speaker’s hair, a young girl. This ritual then morphs into the past where the auntie is mapping out a path towards freedom for a slave girl with every pull of hair into a braid.

Our Southern Story

Southern Fried Karma was founded by Steve McCondichie, a man who spent the first 25 years of his adult career selling heavy equipment and managing real estate. His path took an unlikely turn in January 2015, after he earned his MFA in Creative Writing from Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina. It was then that he really took notice of the power shift in the business of publishing.

In December of that same year, SFK came into existence from humble beginnings. It all started with Steve’s debut novel, LYING FOR A LIVING, and some periodic blog posts highlighting different Southern perspectives. From there, creative minds came and went, offering raw, diverse talent that helped broaden the independent publishing company’s perspective and add nuance to its identity through diversity.

Now, SFK has fully published three novels and a long list of upcoming titles from promising authors. Each Wednesday, it offers a dollop of Southern edge through THE NEW SOUTHERN FUGITIVES zine, and it makes a handful of writers’ dreams of seeing their work published become reality through yearly contests.

The SFK family itself has grown through a deep love of the South. The team travels regularly to spread awareness of our beloved brand. We all hope that y’all will fall in love with SFK as much as we have. We invite you to join us on this journey of diversifying and unifying the South.

With just over 2 weeks before Christmas, look for some holiday treats in the days leading up to Santa's arrival. Two readings from Sanctuary that reflect the Spirit of Christmas in Shiloh, and a series of readings from Charles Dickens, "A Christmas Carol" will be aired the week leading up to the 25th. A special treat is also coming as a Christmas gift--watch for how you can get a FREE edition of Sanctuary beginning December 21 through Christmas Day! Question #1: You've seen at least one movie version of "A Christmas Carol" -- which was your favorite? Question #2: Have you ever read the whole story as written by Charles Dickens?

Tomorrow morning, Connie and I will be headed on a ferry ride to Sapelo Island, a 30 minute trip from the Georgia mainland. Since cell reception may prevent me from broadcasting live at 11 AM, I will broadcast live before we board the ferry, and then share a video later Saturday as reception permits. Stay tuned for why we are venturing to Sapelo Island and visiting Darien. Also, listen for this weekend's trivia question to win a free book.

At 11 AM this morning I will focus on the importance of families in small rural Southern towns, which is clearly depicted in the Shiloh novels. In fact, it seems like everyone is someone's "Cuz" in the South. Then, before I sign off, this week's trivia question will get you to scramble a bit to be able to be the first with the right answer and win a free book. Again, it doesn't matter which book(s) you have read in the series, you'll be able to answer this week's question. See you at 11 AM on Facebook Live from Warm Springs, GA. For those of you in my neck of the woods, this afternoon Sharon Marchisello will be the featured author at Warm Springs Cellars for the monthly Lines Between the Wines .

I got to read the final chapters of Terry Kay’s ”To Dance With the White Dog” with my senior friends at Monarch House, Newnan. I begin weekly readings of my latest novel, Purgatory, A Progeny’s Quest, in 2 weeks. These folks are being treated well but have been hunkered down for 3 months.

Hey, y'all! Thought I'd pop up here to let you know I'm NOT the Associate Publisher of Hearthstone Press, though I've received a bounty of messages recently via Facebook and other digital means from authors interested in publishing partnerships. (I am in awe of everyone's determination to get their book out!) It appears the information on the press's "Contact" page is dated (https://hearthstonepress.com/contact), so I urge you to contact a staff member at Southern Fried Karma for a "mise-à-jour" (update), as we say up here in heat-waving Montréal, Quebec 🙃 Hope everyone is well and safe during this pandemic time. ~ April
