AbyD recruits from the ranks of those who wish to learn and grow in the publishing industry. We provide a platform for minorities, women, and others who are underrepresented in the world of publishing to be heard through quality publishing.

AbyD wants to help you create books so that the gift of literature can touch children of all races, cultures, and religions. We want our writers and illustrators to empower girls and boys as equals in their abilities to dream and to achieve as they have imagined. Our books and illustrations inspire children from struggling world countries to dream bigger than their circumstances while inspiring empathy in affluent children that we are in a connected world. We must all be a part of its solution.
