Navigating Publishing as a Black Writer with Author J. Elle

Today I’m interviewing author J. Elle about her experiences in publishing and her advice for Black writers. She is the author of upcoming YA fantasy Wings of Ebony, out from Simon & Schuster on February 23, 2021, which is described as The Hate U Give meets Black Panther with a Wonder Woman lead. She also has an inner-city magic school series coming from Bloomsbury in 2022.

J. Elle covers querying advice, things to ask potential agents, writing the story you want, emotional labor, and more.
