A Few of My Favs on Audible

Book Lovers
If you’ve been supporting me long enough you know I love to read! I love the touch of a physical book, to be able to turn the page, place a bookmark and annotate when appropriate is one of my favorite things lol. A few years ago I got into ebooks. I couldn’t turn the pages, but I could read the words on the screen and highlight to my hearts’ content. Of course I’ve known about audiobooks. I have friends who live by them and I used them in class for my students, but I was never a fan. I needed to read the words on a page or screen. But one day in 2021 I said let me try this free Audible trial and let me tell you- I fell…

Celebrating the release of No, I Don’t Have To

Black Excellence, Book Lovers, Empower & Inspire, Writing Tips & Info
The past few days have been filled with such a mixed bag of emotions. I've wanted to be a published author since at least eight years old. And over the years I've written so many pieces that the world hasn't seen (YET.) A few years ago, I published my first blog, and from there started sharing bits and pieces here and there. The people that did read what I posted, sporadically, loved my writing! I was happy and shocked. I mean, I love writing, but it's so personal to me. Whether I'm writing about my life, giving advice, or creating stories like the ones in No, I Don't Have To-my writing exposes me in ways I wasn't entirely secure in sharing-until now. Even now, I don't feel ready, but really…

The last time I updated the blog, I was in the middle of participating in Blogmas. While Blogmas was a blast, it was time-consuming, and I had to focus my efforts on continuing the self-publishing process. And a process it has been! I have learned so much throughout this journey, and one day I will share all of those lessons. My first ebook was initially set to be released tomorrow! I chose this date because I'm into numerology, and 12/19/19 felt right. Plus, it's a Thursday, my favorite day of the week. There was a miscommunication with Amazon, and…
