Fellow Book Lovers,
The following came across my email yesterday and I felt the need to share it, with the author's permission. I'm a big fan of Bernice McFadden's works under her own name and also her pseudonym, Geneva Holliday. We've all walked into one of the big name bookstores and had to search for the "black lit" section. It's usually reduced to a small corner or a few shelves, as if our lit isn't relevant. And what is there is the poorly edited, fly by night, urban/street lit.
It's lengthy, but please take the time to read the letter below from Ms. McFadden. Let's not lose a good author.
