When you advertise in African American Books That Click, you get a leg up on your competitors. This is �urban guerilla marketing� at its best. In fact, this approach is the optimal way to create buzz about a book or author, build street credibility, and foster word of mouth throughout the African American community.
We recognize that there is no one category of literature that appeals exclusively to all African-American readers. Therefore, African American Books That Click spotlights a variety of fiction and non-fiction titles to satisfy the growing African-American reading audience. Publishers and authors can also use the catalog to effectively promote new releases and backlist titles.
Each edition of African American Books That Click is designed to ensure
prominent display opportunity and ample description of every featured selection.
The books highlighted in the catalog range from street/urban novels, to
historical fiction, to business titles, religious texts and more.
