The New Black Author Showcase

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.

Please click here and let us know what you think and we will make sure to respect your time, and better serve you in the future.

Many regards,

Diane

Director, Black Author Showcase

write the vision

Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits it's appointed time; it hastens to the end - it will not lie. if it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.…

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
