Take My Hand

Dear readers,

I'm so grateful for the recognition Take My Hand is receiving. It has been awarded the 2023 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work-Fiction, the 2023 Prize for Fiction from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association, and most recently the Silver Gavel Award from the American Bar Association. It was also longlisted for the Mark Twain American Voice in Literature Award. Of course, it feels good for the work to be recognized, but this story is so dear to me. We are being seen! That's especially gratifying.

The paperback is out in stores everywhere. It's a pretty edition with a Reader's Guide that you won't find in the hardcover.

If you've already read it, please spread the word to a friend!

To read more great historical fiction with me, you can join my bookclub which is a private group on Facebook. See link above.

With eternal gratitude,
