Author's Mindset: Purpose Behind The Indie Books
Whenever I meet a "new to me" #indieauthor, I always ask why they jumped into the world of #Indiepublishing. I asked that question of #SanGriffin. Her love for her son and the desire to uplift young Black men and women through your poetry and art shone through in this conversation.

When I started writing it was because I wanted to see more Black women on the pages of #books. Fast-forward fifteen years, and we have so many #self-published authors who are proudly writing about the Black experience. However, what struck me about San is that part of her inspiration came from her son. There is something so amazing about wanting to carve out a path that allows your children to feel a sense of pride in who they are.
We all are unique and amazing in our own way. Through her work, San Griffin tries to remind us of that simple truth. To view this episode, visit my #YouTube channel!
