Our Story

Thanks for visiting the website of Goldest Karat Publishing. We are a boutique black-owned publishing company seeking to fill the diversity gap in traditional publishing by providing readers with high quality children's books featuring characters of African descent. 


I founded this company to fill a critical niche in African-American literature by providing books that fill the untapped needs of young African-American boys and girls in stories they will want to read again and again! 

 Take a look around and feel free to reach out directly to me if you have questions.
