Should African Americans Write for CBA anymore?
(Author Sharon Ewell Foster and my Selah. Sherri Lewis and the NC-Piedmont Rawsistaz BookClub)
This Saturday I attended the Charlotte Literary Festival with my write-or-die-chick, author, Sherri Lewis. Sherri is an ACFW 2008 Book of the Year finalist for her debut title, My Soul Cries Out. We sat by Christy and Rita Award winning author, Sharon Ewell Foster(my godmama in this writing thing.) And powwowed with some of the most successful black authors in and out of Christian publishing.
While there, I wondered what was the secret to being a success in this industry--or in this genre, and came to an unsettling conclusion, that reminded me of a gut check question that has haunted me for months this year: Should African Americans even write for CBA anymore? My thoughts are here at The Master's Artist blog today...
