The Black Authors Network, is here to bring people together, to create a dialogue, and share valuable resources. Our goal is to be the most informative networking group, serving the unique needs of African American authors, businesses, organizations, and concerned parents who wish to improve literacy and strengthen the African American community.

We want to combine our talents, true determination, and multitude of resources, in an effort to develop a literary networking system for our members and literary partners, who support the freedom of speech and the right to take back the PRIDE in our communities.

Hi :

This is just a heads up - A new company is starting in 2009. It will publish novels for women over 40. In other words, the main character has to be a female, over 40 years of age. She does not have to be black. The writer's gender and age is not an issue. All genres welcome: general, mystery, romance, historical, etc. Write to Brenda Frazier for more information. Her email address is:

All best,

Snake Walkers
by J. Everett Prewitt (Author)

ISBN-10: 0976192705
ISBN-13: 978-0976192701

Book Description
Traumatized as a child after witnessing a hanging, Anthony Andrews, the first black reporter at the Arkansas Sun, seeks to solve the mysterious abandonment of a small town and the disappearance of fourteen white men.

This book deals with confrontation, but it also deals with growth and transformation. We are all products of our environment and based on the sum total of our experiences, we approach situations differently. As those experiences change, our approaches are subject to change. We look at circumstances in a new light, and hopefully, we grow.

Snake Walkers is a story about a young black man who was traumatized in his youth, and is later faced with a series of situations that at one point become life threatening. Although he isn't prepared for them, with the help of those he meets along the way, he adapts and becomes a different person in the end.

Small Press Review, July-August 2005, Kaye Bache-Snyder
(Prewitt) develops complex characters and a fascinating mystery with historical roots. It is an engaging novel with insights to ponder.
