Facts About Black Authors
#1 - There are more Black authors than any other minority group.
Not only are African Americans more likely to start a business than our white counterparts, we are also more likely to write a book. Women, to be specific, are the leaders in these areas.

#2 - Black authors are finding success in e-books.
Many African Americans have found success in writing e-books. More and more are popping up, and selling like hotcakes. The subjects vary from business to health to parenting to sex.

#3 - Black authors are self-publishing at a faster rate.
After being burnt by publishing companies, African Americans are learning how to self-publish. Many are even printing and distributing on their own.

#4 - There are more conferences for Black authors than ever before.
In addition to tons of local events, African American readers and writers can also enjoy national events such as the African American Publisher's Pavilion, the Black Writers on Tour Conference, the Harlem Book Fair, the National Black Book Festival, and many more.
