So, my good buddies over at Digital Good Times had me on their show to talk about e-books, the new age of journalism, the state of black literature, how Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes is my fake cousin, and of course, hip-hop (I dish a little bit on my retired rap career and the time I spent rocking stages in southwest Atlanta and performing at cool places like the A3C Festival).
Anyhow, at one point, I start talking about romance writers that I love and completely draw a blank after mentioning Nia Forrester, Christina C. Jones and Love Belvin. So, I've included a list of black romance writers that I really dig below because my memory sucks. Also, I was drinking rum during the interview, so there was that.
At any rate, if you get a minute, click the link and check the show out!
