Greensboro Bound Literary Festival 2018 May 18th-20th

This week over 70 authors will descend upon Greensboro for readings, signings, and lively conversation with readers.

I’m excited to attend not only as a fan of several authors presenting, but also as an author on a panel. I’ll be sharing time with Ray Morrison, Steve Cushman, and Steve Mitchell at Preyer Hall, Greensboro History Museum, May 19, 4:30 pm to talk about contemporary Short Stories, read from our work, and sign a few books.

Of all the events taking place this weekend I know I’m most excited for Nikki Giovanni (A Good Cry, 2017), Fred Chappell (I Am One of You Forever, 1985), Leesa Cross-Smith (Whiskey & Ribbons, 2018), and Greensboro Bound After Hours. There will be music, performances, and of course books.

For a full list of events browse the Greensboro Bound site.

Opening reception takes place at Weatherspoon Art Gallery, UNCG, May 17, 6:00 pm

I hope to see you there!

ICYMI: #TwoMoonsChat

This past Wednesday I did a thing. My first twitter chat. Lauren Cherelle of Resolute Publishing and Black Lesbian Literary Collective (BLLC) was kind enough to host and she asked me some great questions.

I know not everyone has twitter and that’s okay. I still wanted to share what transpired during the chat. So below you’ll find the tweets mapped out in order as the questions were asked. It’s almost like being there. There are two things that you should know before you begin: 1.) Question 4 is no where to be found on twitter. 🙂 🙂 I swear I have searched, hashtag queried, and scrolled all up and down twitter. Based on my answer that somehow survived, the question had something to do with why all my protagonists in Two Moons were woman. 2.) Question 8 and answer have also gone AWOL. And I don’t remember what the question was at all. LOL

I enjoyed talking Two Moons and writing and answering questions It’s nice too having one-on-one with another writer. Thanks, Lauren. And Thanks to Michelle for asking a question and interacting with us (and for reading the book <3).
