Author Carleen Brice's sometimes serious sometimes lighthearted plea for EVERYONE to give black authors a try.
And on the Highbrow side, to boot!Nice going.Now, when will we see you on the morning shows? :)
I think it's time Oprah picked you up. Congrats, Carleen. All your hard work is finally being recognized all the way around.
That is soooo cool!
Oooh, I'm with Maryann. Or maybe one of the Obamas will hear of this and we'll have a new literary cabinet post established, or maybe...Gosh, and we'll be able to say, "we knew her when..."Congratulations! And don't forget to tell people to buy your book, dammit. :)
Thanks friends! I'm just happy the word is spreading!!
This is great! Hope it sends a lot of traffic your way.
Carleen, you're doing something important here.As a white author whose main characters happen to be African-American -- it's just how they appeared to me -- you've made me reflect on the authors behind the words even more.Books I've bought this month:THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD by Zora Neale HurstonandTHE UNTELLING by Tayari Jones.Maybe I'll give them as gifts, maybe I'll keep them.
Oprah all the way, Carleen! Is it any wonder this terrific project is getting so much attention? You've obviously hit on something big. K.
Horray and Congradulations And the more book by black people that are bought means that agent and editiors have to pay more attention to considering black fiction. I'm so glad you are doing this!!!! As my agent says it all about if you can make publisher some money
A New York Magazine nod, very cool. Have you framed it yet?
I was told about your site on the Urban Christian Fiction blog my friend hosts. I have to say I thought the video was funny and entertaining. I've been reading novels written by black authors since the (gasp) late 1970s when I discovered Alex Haley's novels Roots and Queenie and I've been hooked ever since. And yes, I'm not black (on the outside, anyway).
