CME Publishings...

CME    Publishings    is    an    independent,    black    owned    and    operated,    Midwest    based publishing   company   located   in   Milwaukee,   WI.   It’s   current   roster   includes   four   diverse authors   who   are   as   different   as   night   and   day,   each   pleasantly   unique   in   their   own promising   way.   The   company   has   been   operating   since   the   early   to   mid   90s   when   the owner,   me,   CaSandra   Mathis,   first   began   writing   with   the   intent   of   publication,   but   I didn’t    actually    establish    it    as    a    separate    entity    until    I    incorporated    my    umbrella corporation,    C.    Mathis    Enterprises,    Inc.    on    March    14,    2003,    which    is    my    oldest grandson’s birthday,  Company   Mission:   To   effect   positive   change.   It   is   my   personal   and   professional   goal   to bring   about   positive   change   through   the   production   of   as   many   creative   projects   and products as possible through the hiring and support of positive, creative people.

CaSandra Mathis…

I   recently   won   an   award   for   a   novel   I   wrote,   so   I   get   to   run   shit   around   here   and   put stupid   graphics   on   my   pages,   (like   the   one   to   the   right),   just   because   I   want   to.   Well,   I actually thought it was pretty cool. Ole skool, Soul Train dancers. Don’t you? Okay,   I   was   running   shit   anyway,   but   I   like   to   tell   people   about   this   contest   I   won   Oct. 2016,   and   thought   that   was   a   cool   way   to   segue   into   it.   No,   really.   I   mean,   yes   really.   I won   a   contest   for   a   book   I   wrote.   “Drayton   Clarke,   Tools   of   the   Trade.”   It’s   all   on   my Client   Page ,   and   on   my   author   website   TWIM .   I   even   won   1st   place   in   the   book   category, ‘cuz   well,   it   was,   is   a   book.   At   least   until   I   get   done   writing   this   Drama   TV   Script,   then   the novel and script, will hopefully, soon after, be a “sold” script. Oh,   back   to   that   dang   contest.   There   was   no   money,   of   course.   No.   I   mean,   yes,   there was   no   money   awarded.   And,   I   say   of   course   ‘cuz   that’s   just   me.   Of   all   the   times   to   win,   I win   first   place   in   the   one   contest   where   the   payout   is   not   one   single   dime   and   God knows   I   could’ve   used   it.   But,   that’s   my   life.   My   fate   I   believe   at   times,   or   so   the   hell   it   seems.   I   don’t   just   make   this   stuff   up.   I   mean,   I   do.   I’m   a writer   after   all.   But,   this   shit   comes   from   somewhere,   right?   I   mean,   it’s   truth   for   somebody.   The   stuff   we   writer’s   write?   Every   thing’s   true   for somebody, at least on some level, right? Right? RIGHT? Well,   the   crappy   stuff?   That’s   truth   for   me.   At   least   for   the   last   eighty   thousand   or   so   years   this   dinosaur’s   been   in   existence,   or   so   it   feels   like lately   most   days.   And   I   say   stuff   so   I   don’t   have   to   write   shit   again   ‘cuz   honestly   I   do   cuss   too   damned   much.   And,   honestly,   I’m   too   damned honest   even   when   I’m   not   supposed   to   be.   Hell,   especially   when   I’m   not   supposed   to   be.   Like   now,   when   I   probably   should   be   lying   my   ass   off, or   at   the   least   fluffing   up   some   credential   type   shit   and   making   myself   look   good   or   polished   or   whatever   people   do   to   try   and   impress   the people   who   come   to   their   sites   ‘cuz   who   the   hell   knows,   right?   Somebody   could   stop   by   who   could   actually   change   my   fate   into   something worthwhile,   like   buy   one   of   my   really   great   scripts,   or   adapt   one   of   my   hella   great   novels   into   a   movie   or   TV   show,   or   something   great   like   that. Buuuttt…   nah!   Never   got   much   of   a   kick   outta   lying.   You   get   so   much   done   to   ya   in   your   young   life,   you   just   lose   your   taste   for   it   as   you   grow older. At least I did, or have, or both. So,   you’ll   get   honesty,   cussin’,   lots   of   cussin’   and   probably   way   too   much   honesty   and   well,   me.   My   clients   too,   but   mostly   me,   CaSandra   Mathis. Oh,   and   lots   of   damned   good,   actually   damned   great,   hella   good   and   really   great,   glad   your   ass   stopped   by   this   website   and   can’t   wait   to   get   in touch   with   me   so   you   can   grab   onto   to   this   how   the   hell   could   you   have   missed   this   high-concept   having,   gravy   train   mastering,   Qaamar   loving, so   damned   glad   you   stumbled   upon   this   marvel   of   a   woman   whose   great   ideas   just   won’t   stop   flowing,   like   me   in   the   first   place   kinda   gal   that you’ll never be able to get enough of - uhm, where was I? Oh yeah, about me? Too much information? Well…   you’re   the   one   who   came   on   this   page   reading   all   this   mess.   I   just   wrote   it   ‘cuz   that’s   what   this   page   called   for   -   “about   me”   kinda   stuff. And   yes,   I   do   my   own   websites.   I   did   Ellie   Nellz’s   website   and   the   TWIM   site,   (that’s   The   Writer   in   Me,   my   everything   writing   -   all   about   me   - website),   and   Tribal   Nation   Israel’s   site   and,   well,   I   do   websites,   and   graphics,   I   did   all   the   logos,   graphics,   not   the   gifs   tho   (those   moving pictures),   but   the   other   graphics,   the   static   (non-moving)   shiznit   and   all   the   other   stuff   that   goes   with   being   the   lone   wolf   who   runs   stuff.   At   any rate, that’s the “About Me,” segment of this CME Publishings website. I’ll be getting back to work now. Feel free to continue perusing the site. Lots of other great stuff to read and pretty great people to meet.
