Annnnnnnnnd this, Dear Readers, is why I’m going to self-publish.
In this Xtranormal video, an independent African-American author tries to shop his novel around only to experience “stereotypical road blocks.” It’s both hilarious and heartbreaking because it’s all true.
It turns into a commercial for independent author A.C. Moore‘s novel Even Angels Need Miracles toward the end, but that’s okay. The message is delivered. And it’s relevant to me because I actually know established authors who have to endure this kind of dumb shit.
