In today’s creative climate, writers are able to release their works on their own through Self-Publishing. Even with many success (and failure) stories, there are still misconceptions that cripple authors and poets who want to go the self-publishing route.
Episode 2 of my Podcast, Thoughts & Chill, I am joined by Author, Bunmi Laditan, who has found success from both traditional publishing and self-publishing. We talk about how she started writing, tips for getting a publisher, marketing for self-published books and more!
Do you think that is a stigma authors have? After self-publishing a book, can that same book get published by a traditional publisher? Mr. Compostion to Bunmi Laditan.
“I’ve known so many people who have self-published books and then sold it.” -Bunmi Laditan
Hollywood would have us thinking that the narratives of blacks stop at slaves, thugs, and crackheads. We know that isn’t true, but entertainment depicting alternate narratives are few and far between. LA-based Comedian, Writer, and Actress, Alesia Etinoff, is helping to narrow that gap with new web-series, “Avant-Guardians”. In this Afrofuturism series, Etinoff plays guardian angel, Razz, who watches over 12-year-old future third black President, Charlie, whom she refers to as “Creepy Charlie.” Razz is instructed by God to attend therapy after a recent accident Charlie had.

I also had the pleasure of doing a group podcast with Kinyo (host, poet), Franque Michele (blogger), & Chauntel Logan (author) interviewing Alesia Etinoff about the creation of Avant-Guardians, Mental Health, and more!
