When LaShonda DeVaughn first stepped into the literary world in 2007, she did not anticipate the raving success that seemed to emerge overnight, especially as a self-published author. Although self-publishing is a route that more writers are now exploring, it was uncommon to thrive without a publishing company a decade ago, and even more rare in LaShonda’s genre of choice, urban fiction. Thus, the Boston-native defied the odds with flying colors and proceeded to create a lane for writers of urban fiction while also demonstrating that it is certainly achievable to flourish as a self-published author.
Widely known for her Award-winning series A Hood Chick’s Story, LaShonda has written 14 books and published 23 through her very own publishing company, LSDV Productions, all within the last decade. In her most recent work, Write That Book and Make That Money: Strategies For The Hungry Author, LaShonda shares her most valuable tips and tricks that will enable aspiring authors to manifest their dreams into reality.
Concerned about the lack of diversity in children’s books, Charnaie Gordon and her two kids are bridging the literacy gap with their new project that brings diverse books to children in each of the 50 states.
Gordon founded the Here Wee Read platform, which highlights diversity in children’s books, featuring multiple races, cultures and religions. The curated books also teach children about important subjects such as immigration and politics.
Through “50 States 50 Books”, Gordon and her two children are sending these significant books to non-profit organizations, libraries, schools, and more, to every state in the country.
Since launching this project, Gordon shares that several people have felt inspired to help, and have bought titles from Here Wee Read’s Amazon Wish List, that includes multiple sections such as “Juneteenth Books”; “Asian Picture & Chapter Books”; and “Latino/Bilingual Picture Books”.
