Founded in 2012 with the mission of providing a safe space for a diversity of female authors, Nothing But The Truth Publishing honed its mission in 2017 to focus on authors of color who identify as women. We believe that publishing’s inclusion gap has had a ripple effect that’s negatively impacted our culture as a whole.
In addition, we believe that without representation in all aspects of the publishing process, we cannot expect to unleash the full creative potential of the human experience. That’s why we’re also dedicated to providing cultural inclusion in all aspects of the publishing process, from start to finish.
NBTT is a mission-based company that reinvests 100% of its profits back into the company. All sales go to the support of our authors and our drive to create a higher level of cultural competency across the publishing industry.
