Huh

 

I'm assuming that they're saying "diversity doesn't sell well." So, remember how I mentioned that I was beefing up my f/f TBR using the 50% off code at Kobo, because some publishers price their books ridiculously high? Bold Strokes Books is one of those publishers. They have cheaper titles, but many of them are priced at $9.99. Their books could be better formatted, and I've seen several book descriptions on their site with typos - not exactly encouraging to readers considering buying those works. Maybe they have some other things they could work on before they start saying there are challenges to selling diversity?
