Topic Alone Does Not Determine Book Sales!

Do you publish many titles – fiction or non-fiction – by African American authors? Or books of interest to an African American audience? Has there been much success with these?


At, we have published books for African Americans and by African American authors. Some have done well while others have not. A book’s success depends entirely on the book itself and the author’s marketing efforts. Just because one book for a specific audience does well does not mean every book targeting that audience will do well. There are far too many factors involved.
