Take My Hand

Dear readers,

Take My Hand has been awarded the 2023 NAACP Image Award! Also, the Black Caucus of the American Library Association has awarded it their 2023 prize for fiction. 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 will launch April 4. It's such a pretty paperback, too, with a Reader's Guide that you won't find in the hardcover. If you pre-order that means a lot to me. 

Oh, and my bookclub will launch soon. Sign up for the newsletter and stay tuned!

Thank you again and more soon,
