It’s pretty simple. I’m Black and my zodiac sign is Leo, the Lion. So put them together and there you have it: The Black Lion.
The more important question? Why another blog? Well, I’ve long held the notion that there isn’t enough written about and for People of Color (POC) in the book publishing industry. While POC embraces many non-whites, this blog is intended to spotlight African Americans in the book publishing industry. That’s not to say I won’t write and discuss topics that aren’t specific to us. There’s too much out there that’s beneficial to everyone. When that occurs, I’ll more than likely highlight how it may indirectly help Black writers, editors and other publishing professionals.
