Eschar Publication About Us

Founded in 1988, Eschar Publications began with the basic premise that it could provide books and workshops to help parents in their quest for ways to improve their children's academic performance. Later, by 1994, Eschar Publications realized a growing need to provide African American children's literature.

Founder, Vivian Owens, organized Eschar Publications as a one-author publishing company. However, in 1992, Eschar made an exception when it published A WOMAN'S LIFE by Tarney G. Tarry. Through the years, the company has served in an advisory capacity to assist other writers in starting their own publishing houses.

Today, Eschar Publications remains a small business, mostly publishing children's literature and educational books and materials. In addition to our own website, Eschar books can be found on Amazon, and we branched into publishing a few eBooks on Amazon Kindle. Several of our books have received recognition as "Resources in Education." Children's Literature, NadandaTheWordmaker, won a Best Book Award from Writer's Digest the year it was published. Our book, Parenting for Education: Revised Edition, won awards from Mom's Choice Awards and from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association.

Our excitement grows for our new books, The Man Who Hid Christmas in a Shoebox and Create a Math Environment: Revised Edition.

We are happy that you have chosen to read our books.
