A master story teller brings choice to the Urban genre

Many of the people involved with Urban Fiction genre now realize that in order for this literary style to continue to grow they have to offer more sophisticated choices. This is what has helped Rap music go from the Bronx street corners to virtually every corner of the globe. The artist provided different music styles and choices. Many people who wouldn’t buy Rap ten years ago can now name their favorite rappers.

One of the new authors pushing the Urban Fiction envelop is Alan Cramer, the author of “God Helps Those…” “My goal is to write novels with tight story lines and strong character development. While at the same time, reflect the realities of the street. The response to this book has been phenomenal. We’ve been marketing the book to people who don’t usually read Urban Fiction and the feedback has been extraordinary.”

In fact the book is so realistic, that a few people have asked the author, is this your life story. To which he answers, “No. In fact, because people keep asking me this, I’m putting the sequel on hold. Instead I’m writing a completely different story that is so off the hook, it will prove to everybody I’m making this stuff up.”

Alan Cramer will be at the Nyack African - American Author Conference & Book Fair Saturday, March 19th, 2005. The Book Fair’s website is:
