D. K. N. Yuko

Biography

There are not many African-Americans or women writers in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, or Occult Fiction genres. However, these genres have been a passion of Dakarai Noshell Yuko’s for as long as she can remember. She has an affinity for writing multicultural stories with realistic characters and strong female leads, as well as unconventional poetry.

D. K. N. Yuko is no stranger to things that are considered unusual for a strong, African-American woman in the South. She developed a love for all things magical and mysterious at an early age. Her late mother was also an eccentric writer and crafter, and instilled in Ms. Yuko a robust love of books and all things uniquely creative that will last a lifetime.

Currently, she attends the Academy of Art University in San Francisco Online, where she avidly pursues a BFA in Motion Pictures and Television. After drifting from one end of the country to the other, she resides (back) in Atlanta, GA with her third husband (best friend), six year old son (biggest fan), and five fish (hilarious creatures).

Smashwords book reviews by D. K. N. Yuko

    I thought I could get around reading this book since I already had several titles published in print and on Kindle. Boy was I wrong. This book is so helpful. I could read it easily and follow the directions, even with my three year old jumping on my back. Of course, the best part of all was having my works accepted for the Smashwords Premium Catalog. I even went back to Kindle and uploaded my new files there, using this guide to improve the look of my ebooks. Thanks Mark.
