State of the Author: All Over the Place … or, a Miscellany
Hi, everyone. Lots of things on my mind just now.
I submitted Bayou Fire for the 2019 Kindle Book Awards. Semi-finalists will be announced September 1. Keep your fingers crossed for me; it remains the book of which I am most proud to date.
I’m still working on a submission for Bronzeville Books‘ Illicit anthology. I think I’ve figured out the twist I need to make my story work. We’ll see.
As you already read, I was horrified by the fire at Notre-Dame de Paris. If you would like to donate directly to a fund to help with the restoration, please click here: Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris.
I was equally horrified by the burning of historically black churches in Louisiana’s St. Landry Parish. The arsons were committed by a white supremacist, and he is being charged with hate crimes. If you would like to donate directly to a fund to help with the restoration of the churches, please click here: GoFundMe for 7th District Baptist Church Fires.
I thought about doing some sort of a royalty donation based on book purchases, but honestly? I’d rather have you give what you think you can best afford, and where you would like your funds to go.
Thank you for reading.
