Sweet mother of dragons! I've had some friends who turned out to be a little less than so over the years, but -- to my knowledge -- I've never had one bury me. But it sounds like there are some very, very dark things afoot somewhere in the literary world ...
Our intrepid contributor (and general Space Princess) Claire is back again this week with an author interview, this time spending some quality time with Las Vegas native Kamaya Tarpley, a creative genius in her own right who has managed to bring not one, not two, but an incredible eleven novels to life as an independent storyteller.
And the quote from above?
That's a little 'something something' Tarpley penned herself from her latest release, Witches Of Ravenswood, which is available for purchase on ye old Amazon.com.
"I went self-published because unfortunately a lot of the agents and publishers who claimed to represent BIPOC authors were very unsupportive in having ethnic main characters," Tarpley says about the how's and the why's of her personal journey. About her ambitions, she adds, "I chose to learn this craft every way possible including creating covers, editing properly, etc. It takes a lot of dedication and humility to learn new things. We always want to be right about things, but there is no shame in getting knowledge, especially if you want to produce quality work."
