Breeze Publishing is an independent publishing company that is based in Durban. Breeze Publishing was established in October 2006 by its managing partner and businesswoman Naseema Mall, who served her apprenticeship at New Vision Publishers in Egypt where she worked for five years. It is during these formative years that she gained a wealth of experience in the field of publishing and printing, and was inspired to start her own publishing company in South Africa, upon her return to the country. Although relatively small, Breeze Publishing has entrenched itself in the local market by publishing quality books of a variety of themes and categories, both in fiction and non-fiction; for the adult, teen and children’s markets. Naseema found a niche in the market when she met numerous writers of all genres who had good quality manuscripts but had no idea about what the publishing process entails and how to establish themselves as authors. With a growing demand from aspiring writers abroad, she took a special interest when internationally acclaimed and renowned business leadership trainer, Mirza Yawar Baig from India was seeking a South African publisher. Several book launches on behalf of this esteemed author helped propel the company, and the company has entrenched its footprint in the South African publishing industry. Among some of Breeze Publishing’s most popular publications are the poetry anthologies In Love’s Way by Abdulla Amla and Wounds & Wings by Bilkis Moolla. Breeze Publishing has also produced popular recipe books. The company is set on launching the careers of aspiring writers and is continuously being approached by both local and foreign authors. We carefully select manuscripts of essence and quality for the pleasure of readers worldwide.
