I am basically doing it on my own setting up stands on the streets in different places and selling my book signed to people. It's hard work but I am willing to do it. I been in Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan and without a car a got to get around by subway and carry table to the different boroughs to set up...very difficult but people do purchase my book which keeps me motivated.

Peace ^_^

Hope all is well on your end.
It's been a minute.
ConsciousInk switched focus awhile back. It wasn't generating much activity with the group focus. A few of us were announcing others works actively but not enough of us to make the difference it was intended to make. We were all supposed to be looking out for each other and making sure to push diverse works forward with a communal effort.

ConsciousInk is now primarily acting as a magazine column, and announcement engine for speculative fiction finds written by people of color and featuring characters of color.

Hope all is blessed with your works.

Shine on

Black like coal is hot diamond on the hand of a young couple promising eternity

Black like time is never done

Black like on and on

And every sum was a black one

Black like… Continue

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.
