Recently, a new movement has risen. It’s a call for more diverse books. It became known during the Book Expo where, from what I’m told, there was a startling lack of diverse books available.
Part of me thinks it’s about time.
During my journey to publish as a Christian author, I found myself floored by how many traditional publishing houses neglected to buy my book — not because it wasn’t a good product but because it has an interracial couple. One would think in the 21st century, this kind of attitude is archaic. Shouldn’t we have arrived by now?
I guess not.
