Update on the Obama Effect in Publishing

Okay, so I started the conversation here on the Meltingpot and then I was so intrigued, I decided to follow up.

Check out my article posted today on The Root.com about the Obama effect in publishing.

And then if you are so inclined to read more about Black people in the publishing industry, check out Write Black.com. It's a blog written by a snarky reporter named Anika who has a penchant for romance novels, but don't let that fool you. She covers every angle of the publishing world and is always topical.

Happy Monday.

Peace!

Lori, I enjoyed reading your article. Whatever happens I hope that President-Elect Obama's book successes inspire Black folks and othe people of color to document and tell their stories with or without the support of mainstream publishers. Online publishing and social media offer unlimited resources to tell and distribute our stories. Let's tell them and support each other.

Great article! We're making some headway: http://nymag.com/arts/all/approvalmatrix/52584/

And I'm working on an op-ed for the Washington Post.

Black authors, yes we can!!
