Diversity (or lack thereof) among New York Times bestsellers:
We chose to look at the most general bestsellers list, Combined Print & E-Book Fiction (adult), and looked at the top ten books for all 52 weeks of 2012. The results were staggering, if not surprising:
Only three out of the 124 authors who appeared on the list during 2012 (less than three percent) are people of color: Sylvia Day, E.L. James, and Tess Gerritson.
See the full study here. Also worth noting that there were no (no!) African American authors on the list and that of the three series by authors of color that made the list, only one contains a main character of color.
The study focuses on 2012 but I’m betting when we get to the end of 2013 it won’t look much different…
