Last night, Sistah Girls Book Club hosted their first ever Behind The Pen: Intimate Sessions, and I was super excited that they asked me to be a part of it because it truly was a dope event. Here are 4 reasons why:
1. Readers are so dope! Every time I attend a signing/book event I'm floored by the enthusiasm, support, and love that readers show to the indie author community at large, and particularly to the black indie romance community. Like, it's amazing. People come in the rain and nasty weather (it was pretty gross in Atlanta all day yesterday), people drive from other cities (one person drove a couple of hours to be in attendance) and basically people come through and just show love. I love, readers. Seriously, I love y'all.
2. Bria Felicien is awesome! Author/journalist Bria Felicien is one of my favorite writer people and she did a great job hosting and asking questions and basically just creating a cool, chill, intimate environment for everyone who came through. I love Bria. Bria is awesome. Click here to read some of Bria's awesome work.
3. Something Too Drink Café is super cool. So, the event was held in a space called Something Too Drink Café, and the owner Meeka is super cool, sweet, and just invested in the community in a way that really matters. She's providing light and the space to do cool, creative things, like the event last night, and that's dope and important.
4. Sistah Girls Book Club is awesome. Their vision, heart and, ability to execute makes them one of the most valuable organizations/clubs in this space, for real. I'm headed to New York this summer to sign at their main event, Behind The Pen and I'm beyond excited because the energy they bring is truly beautiful. Shout out to Sharee!
