Liberty Lite Bookclub

I had an absolute ball with the Liberty Lite Bookclub.  Everyone was so welcoming and we had a great discussion.  I love it when readers can tell me things about my work that I didn’t even see.  I want to thank Liberty Lite Bookclub for featuring Water in a Broken Glass and for loving it as much as I do.

6th Annual African American Author’s & Empowerment Expo

Yesterday, I attended the 6th Annual African American Author’s & Empowerment Expo.  This wonderful event is the baby of Patricia Johnson-Harris, one of the hosts of  Authors Talk Live blog radio show.  Although she is not an author, Pat is a great supporter of authors.  This is my second year attending the Expo and it’s been a blessing.  I’ve connected with so many talented authors and the sweetest, most supportive readers.  You feel loved when you are at this event.  I am so thankful to be a part of it.  I can’t wait until next year.

CityLit Festival and Baltimore’s Uprising

This year I attended the 12th Annual CityLit Festival, which is held at the central branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library.  It took place the Saturday after what is now known as “Baltimore’s Uprising.”  It was a difficult time for the Baltimore.  At CityLit, a number of authors and poets discussed their work and expressed their feelings about the riots and their love for Baltimore.

 

Four Square

Kizmic’s Journey is all about loving and remembering your childhood.  Some of the things we remember the most are the games we played.  Four Square was one of those games.

 

Hand Games

Kizmic’s Journey takes us back to the 70’s when children played hand games.  I got together with my family and friends and went back down memory lane.

 

Fan Appreciation Day

Fan Day 4 Fan Day 5 Fan Day 6 Fan Day 7

On Saturday, July 25th, my new publishers, Edward Robinson and Natalie Stokes-Peters, held an Odessa Rose Fan Appreciation Day for all the people that have supported my writing.  It was a great event.  I wasn’t sure if I could do something like that at first, but when I realized that I’d be able to thank all of you for believing in and like my work, I was all for it.

We enjoyed good food, music, and conversation.  I read a chapter from Kizmic’s Journey and I must say that it was a hit.  I was a little worried that people wouldn’t like it, but everyone loved it.  I’m going to do another reading this week and I’m going to post it here so people can see it.

Kizmic’s Journey is a wonderful story. I love the characters.  I love the events that take place.  It really takes you back to your childhood.

Kizmic’s Journey is scheduled for release in 2016.  I can’t wait for you all to read it.

 

Here are a few pictures with some friends that came out.

Four Square

In Baltimore, we played a game called Four Square or Block Ball, depending on what side of the city you lived.  I grew up in northwest Baltimore, and we called it Four Square.  I got together with my friends and family to relive our childhood playing this wonderful game.  When people see us playing this game, they say it brings back wonderful memories.  That’s what Kizmic’s Journey will do–bring back all those beautiful childhood memories.

 

A Few Minutes On Writing — Self-doubt

Hello!

Below is another A Few Minutes On Writing.  This post talks about the self-doubt that most authors are afflicted with from time to time.  I’m sure almost every author has heard the story about Stephen King and how after writing Carrie, he threw it in the trash and his wife retrieved it.  Self-doubt causes more authors to throw their writing careers away than anything.

A Few Minutes On Writing

I’m back with another episode of A Few Minutes On Writing.  Check it out as I give you the latest on my writing, events, This Is Baltimore, Too, Odessa Rose Presents The Pitch, and the new What Authors Do When Wednesday.  As always, thanks for the support.
