Big Black Chapters: Supporting Indie Authors of Color

Big Black Chapters.¬† Big Black Reads…

Welcome to BBC

Welcome to Big Black Chapters, where we celebrate the literary works of self-published and indie authors of color. The goal of Big Black Chapters is to increase awareness of African American authors who self-publish, especially in the vast genre that is romance and erotica.

Being the biggest selling book genre, African American authors struggle to be seen in the romance marketplace. This is especially true for self-published authors trying to stand out amongst the millions of other books available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

As much as publishing companies cry out for diversity, they still manage to forget writers of color. This is why many African American writers have decided to take the self-publishing route, including the dynamic duo that makes up Big Black Chapters.

Are You an Indie Author of Color?

Big Black Chapters is here to support you. Our goal is to provide self-published and indie authors of color with the tools and resources needed to compete in the self-publishing game. There’s more to publishing a book, than just writing a story. There’s also marketing, cover design, and the editing process.

A lot goes into getting a book published and we’re here to offer our support by sharing the skills we’ve learned along our personal self-publishing journies.
