PrettyGirlsRead is an independent publishing imprint created to empower women to write, read and communicate effectively.  Founded by author Chaka Adams, the PrettyGirlsRead imprint publishes fiction and non-fiction novels targeting the urban market primarily with expectations to broaden its reach.

The company was founded in September 2012 and is currently headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.  

The brain child of a Gates Millennium Scholar, PrettyGirlsRead LLC, consists of a group of women who are passionate about literacy and work to eradicate the cycle of violence and poverty affecting women.

PrettyGirlsRead hosts writing workshops and motivational speaking engagements throughout the United States.  Additionally, the company has launched a PrettyGirlsRead Teen imprint which targets girls between the ages of 12 - 17 years old.  

PrettyGirlsRead is more than a business - its a Movement!
