News You Can Use. . .I hope ; )

Blogger Karen Scott is posting the surveys that she received from AA authors on the topic of racism in the publishing industry. She'll be posting one survey a day. She's already posted about a half dozen, including mine. From reading through the surveys it would seem we've all had different experiences. Check out some of the visitor comments posted. Some of them are quite eye opening.

One of my favorite authors, Tina McElroy Ansa, is starting her own publishing company called Down South Press. They will be publishing mainly fiction and will be open for agented submissions starting July 1, 2007. (Link Courtesy of the Black Books Blog).

I just discovered that the Persia Walker, author of the mystery Harlem Redux, which is excellent by the way, has a blog. She is chronicling her efforts to get The Palmer Affair, the sequel to Harlem Redux, published.

Queen Latifah is lobbying to play the role of African detective Precious Remotswe in the movie adaptation of author Alexander McCall Smith's #1 Ladies Detective Agency.

Check out my Blogging In Black post today on social networking sites entitled Cyber Socializing.
