Now here's the thing, in this economy, bookstores are reluctant to take a chance on stocking books by first-time authors (especially books that feature brown faces). So how does one get exposure? Well, as Tameka says, "It will take a 'movement on the ground.'"
Here's what you can do:
1. Purchased a copy of the book, RIGHT AWAY!
2. Call or visit your local independent bookstore, or chain bookstore (Borders, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, etc.) TODAY and tell them you'd like to purchase a copy.
3. Purchase online.
4. PASS ALONG this information. Blog, tweet, email, Facebook.
