That same year she spread her wings even more by relaunching her independent publishing company S.Yvonne Presents.

She has definitely made a name for herself and her brand in the urban fiction industry while crossing off personal goals along the way. Though, S.Yvonne is a household name in the urban fiction world, she is still Shalaine a very kind, down-to-earth, humble, and genuine soul.
