********************* Thanks, Mark. It was a good article. I had to smile when I read the part about publishers being leery of marketing books with a black male protagonist. The general rule of empathy is that like attracts like, so that means they were targeting black male readers, and publishers don't think they read. If I recall correctly, Walter Mosley went through the same problem.
