How we got here
A very long, long time ago, In 2014, Nyana Kakoma, a writer and blogger, was motivated to start a blog that would showcase Ugandan writers and Ugandan literature. A writer herself, she was concerned that the story about Uganda, in and out of Uganda, was limited to a narrative that most Ugandans could not relate to, or take pride in. In May, 2014, Nyana started publishing Ugandan short stories poems, folk tales, book reviews and event reviews
After an Internship with Modjaji Books in South Africa, Nyana was convinced that the blog was ready to turn into a publishing house. The main motivation being a lack of quality and diverse Uganda books on the market. Fuelled by the hunger for "good books with our names in and on them",
Sooo many stories was officially registered as a publishing house.
