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…

*New Release Date: December 28, 2019* ANNOUNCEMENT: New release date for No, I Don't Have To: December 28, 2019. New pre-orders are available here. Hello! Welcome back to my December posts. 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…

The reason I wrote this book is that I hear and see time and time again…

Hello! Thanks for joining me again. I've missed posting but needed the small break I took for myself in the last few days.But I'm back! Life has been pretty busy now that I'm moving forward with self-publishing my own book. So much so that I probably won't get to read all of the books on my fall list. So, today, I'm going to share some of the books I have read and enjoyed in 2019. I plan to add at least two more books by the end of the year, so I'll share those later. In the meantime, take a look at my reading list from the last ten months. Nonfiction The Autobiography of Malcolm X The Autobiography of Gucci Mane The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae…

National Book Month

Book Lovers
Another day in Blogtober, another day to talk about one of my first loves-books. So apparently October is also the time we celebrate National Book Month! Again, no clue who makes these things up, but I'm not mad at them!  From nationaltoday.com-National Book Month is held each October. The month-long celebration focuses on the importance of reading, writing and literature. National Book Month is also a time to honor the country’s best books and authors. In mid-October, the National Book Awards announces the year’s 15 finalists. Back in August, we talked about National Book Lovers Day. If you've read my blog or social media page long enough, then you know, besides writing, I love to read. As many of us have experienced in adulthood-life gets busy, and things are sacrificed.…
