Dear Friend of Black Author Showcase,
Thanks so much for your support over the years. It takes a lot of work to keep a site as robust as BAS was in its infancy (with over 6,000 members) rolling and relevant and your support has made that possible.
We are in the process of planning a new launch and content calendar for the remainder of the year and the team needs your help. What do you want more of? What books inspire you? What writers and genres to you want to hear about?
What should we be doing for YOU – the reader of good books by Black Authors? We are listening to you the audience and making sure that we bring the best value and service. We need your input to guide the team.
Please take a quick second to fill out this survey to help us know what you want more of from the Black Author Showcase.
We will be randomly giving away a gift basket for people who complete the survey (filled with great stuff), but more importantly, if you like checking out new authors, poems, art and books from people who look like you, this will help us know how to do it better.
Director, Black Author Showcase
