This is a place where readers can meet African American independent authors, illustrators and small publishers of children books... join us on our journey as we create new characters and worlds.


Hello Everyone,


Thank you for stopping by and checking out our books. My name is Jacquitta A. McManus and when I started my journey to build my publishing company, Worlds To Discover, I found a big void that I was compelled to help fill.


For African American authors, illustrators and publishers of children books, there is a lack of websites dedicated to help promote them. I  found that to be a problem. I knew if it was a problem for me then it had to be a problem for others.  That void and lack of presence is why Inside The Books was formed. A place that will give a voice to those on a similar journey as myself. If you are an author, illustrator or small publisher please introduce yourself and use all the resources on this site to help you on your journey. If you are a reader, I want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for being a part of our journey.


Please, also check out my site for more information about my books.


P.S.  I'm looking for someone to help me with building this site to the best it could be. If you would like to assist me in your free time please send me an email and let's talk. Unfortunately, there is no pay. Like myself, you would be doing it out of the kindness of your heart in your free time. If you don't have the time please consider donating. All donations, big and small, will go toward advertising.


P.S.S. Please note that I'm not taking book submissions for Worlds To Discover at this time.
