Celebrated children's book author, Crystal Swain-Bates, was fed up with the lack of black children's books on the market, so she founded Goldest Karat Publishing in order to address the lack of diversity in children's literature. With over 100,000 books sold, her children’s books have been featured in Essence, CNN, the Huffington Post, and on television shows such as BET’s “The Game” and “Being Mary Jane.”
Major companies such as Amazon and Ingram, the world’s largest distributor of books, have spotlighted Crystal’s phenomenal success with their platforms. Her collection of books has made her a household name among black parents and families that want to expose their children to positive images of themselves.
Known as a “Diversity Publishing Pro”, Crystal offers done-for-you publishing services to authors who want to bring their books to life and to the market.
