BHM Blog Hop: The Business of Black Books
Tuesday February 7, 2012 at 12:16 am |


The Black History Month Blog Hop is hosted by Alysia of Mocha Girls Read and Alexis of Reflections of a Bookaholic! It’s purpose is to give black authors, books, and those who support them a month in the spotlight.  This hop is open to any blogger who wants to participate at any time of the month so please go to either blog to sign up and join in.

This weeks topic is:

The business of Black books.  This week focuses on business related topics pertaining to black authors.

I was unable to interview anyone specifically on this topic but I had an idea.  I have connected with a few AA authors over the years through the blogospehere, and others I’ve just discovered their personal or business websites.  What I’ve noticed about these authors is that they are more than willing to share information about getting published, marketing your books, how to write and outline, getting agents and query letters, etc.  So below is a list of links to these websites and articles for anyone looking for the information.  Enjoy!



Also check out The Write One Blog, where the author has a wealth of information for aspiring writers from everything to publishing to marketing.

    Thanks for sharing the information. Very valuable. Shelia Goss has lots of useful information. Never heard of Stefanie, so I will definitely be checking her out soon.

  5. I absolutely LOVE the idea for this hop — it’s so amazing to shine a spotlight on AA authors! And those posts full of helpful tips for wannabe-writers like me are so perfect! I’m jumping through a bunch of them right now and they’re really helpful to the uninformed haha! x)
