Women Writers of Color - Thank You (Til Next Year)

One of my favorite Color Online features is Women Writers of Color (WWOC). This interview feature is only possible because authors are willing to give a little of their time.

Authors are busy, and can't say yes to every request, nor should they. So it truly means a lot when they say, yes to Color Online.

On behalf of all the contributors to Color Online, thank you to all the author's who participated in WWOC this year.

By themselves the interviews are nice but letting people know about them is even better. Thank you to anyone who has ever commented on, tweeted or told a friend about WWOC. Making sure that female authors of color are not overlooked is a group effort.

WWOC will be back next year. For now please enjoy some great ones from 2010 and continue to spread the word.

We had the opportunity to interview some fantastic writers. I discovered some new-to-me authors and learned more about favorites. I'm so proud of Color Online. Can't wait for an even better 2011!

WWOC makes me smile. Many of the answers are just WOW.

For me sometimes, a great interview will make me finally seek out an author's work.

And here I was thinking we should be thanking you for giving us such great platform! Here's to a beautiful new year and many, many more books!
