Iurban.me and iUrban.org is a magazine, social community, and resource directory property (founded by Dion Cheese, built and co-managed by Inicia Publishing), but they are also a movement to push urban fiction through the glass ceiling set by the mainstream publishing industry, in the same way hip-hop cracked the music industry.
The site was created for urban fiction enthusiasts in general and struggling authors [who have great stories to tell] in particular. It is also a source of anything urban; lifestyle, fashion, music and more. We provide free access for fans, Book Clubs, small publishing companies, promoters, and other industry-related personnel to interact in a private space — join today, and if you have a product or service be sure to list yourself in the directory.
We don’t believe that in today’s age of technology that anyone should have to sell their home in order to promote their books. So Dion and his former music manager Bruce T. Dugan (tri-CEO of Intech Creative LLC, Inicia Incorporated and Incognito Worldwide), are on a mission to make some noise and let the world know about urban fiction.
At iUrban.me authors get direct access to the public to obtain real feedback.

iUrban is a co-venture with Inicia Incorporated, a New York corporation established in 2011 that publishes and manages a series of narrow-niche publications, social networks and resource centers, as well as provides a wide range of services to authors and publishers. The Company is a part of the family of companies of Incognito Worldwide,the group that built, hosts and manages the technological requirements of iUrban.me.
iUrban.me is a free magazine, social network and resource center. As such we exist by sponsored ads that we introduce to our community. Because our community is niche-specific, we reserve the right to refuse advertising that in our opinion does not serve our readership. We do not promote any sexually-oriented ads.
The urban fiction community is catching fire, and we beelive that in the same way that hip-hop music was disregarded by the major record labels, the mainstream has failed to see to the rising interest in UrbanFiction books. This a large unserved community, comprised of people from all walks of life — doctors, politicians, truck drivers, police and fireman, soldiers, clerks, waitresses and more.
