I can hardly believe it, we’ve whipped through one genre already. Week two of the Male Authors of Colour Promo you can read more about what’s going on in this blog I did here. we’re going to switch gears, say thank you and luck to last week’s Street Lit Kings, and welcome our ‘Book Boyfriends/Romance, Non-Fiction and Poetry’ authors! In the line up we have:
Author Asar- Romance
Author Jackson- Poetry
Author Cedric Logan- Poetry
Author Mel Walker – Romance
Author Robert L Horton- Poetry
Author Nolan P Holloway- Poetry
Author Mike Deeze- Non- Fiction
Author Michael Ediale- Non Fiction
Author Tyvon Price- Non Fiction
Author Lawrence Hall- Romance
Author Adrian Walker- Non Fiction and Inspirational
I must say this is a very interesting group of authors to get to know, we’ll have book giveaways, fun facts, learn a bit about what they’ve published and a chance to visit the pages of a book they wish to share with us.
It’s important to remember that male authors need to be heard, in particular male authors who identify as a man of colour, regardless of his descent. In the lit world sadly these voices are sometimes shaded and overlooked. It’s also important to remember, while urban and street lit genres have a massive market and readership, this is not all male authors of colour can and do write. You’ll see this hopefully as we move through the genres. Personally, I’m looking very forward to this genre as a romance author and massive reader myself, I love male romance authors! I have read a few and really enjoyed the male POV on love and life. I’m also massive non-fiction reader, and poetry is just so special! It’s going to be an exciting week.
So in honour of #BlackLivesMatter , #BlackLivesMatterUK and #BlackAuthorsMatter let’s elevate, lift and express some interest in male authors of colour. Tomorrow we will kick off with author #1 and #2, then each day as we move through July, continue through the genres of this live up of thirty men I have for you to get to know.
Have a wonderful weekend…read a book, preferably by a male author of colour and leave him a review!
