Happy Weekend, Wordsmiths! 🌈I’m excited for poetry month even though I celebrate poetry and writing all year there is something fun about a concentrated month of it. I won’t be writing a poem everyday this month. I did it last year and it took me out. By the end of the month my mental faculties were absolutely wiped! LOL
I’m so thankful to my publisher, BLF Press, who is dedicated to putting out incredible work by women of color. I feel so supported working with this Black press and having my work respected and taken seriously. I’m treated the same way and shown how much I matter in this industry. I received an awesome care package from BLF Press this week too with all the things writers need and love: A book of poetry, a fancy notebook, a totebag, and SNACKS! Thank you so much!
It’s been such a good week. With the release date for This is Not About Love right around the corner (April 6th) I feel excited! And I can admit also that I’m a little nervous. I keep telling myself this is normal. This is normal. 😬
As promised I found a tasty and refreshing recipe for our LOVE LIBATION!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 large strawberry, sliced
- 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 ounce simple syrup
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce elderflower liqueur
- 2 to 3 ounces sparkling dry rosé wine
- Strawberry, garnish
Assembly instructions here And of course adjust it to suit your tastebuds! 😋
I hope I’ll see all of you at the virtual launch event on Saturday April 10th at 6pm. It’s not too late to register. Use the link here.
Enjoy the weekend! 🤗
