  1. Have y'all read this article? As a marketer, there's so many ways indie bookstores can take advantage of their position.... https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/despite-decline-mega-bookstore-chains-indie-enjoying-thomas-mitchell/
  2. Everyone talks about the absent father but not too many in our culture discuss our toxic moms. There have been quite a few articles lately that discuss the generational trauma and disconnect between black mothers and daughters. As a survivor of child abuse, when I speak to other survivors, every woman in the room discusses how toxic their mother was. It took some time, but I finally gained perspective about my mom and the stories I've been told. Hopefully, this book will help others begin to heal. The genre will be inspirational fiction and span from slavery to the current generation; I may include a future generation as well. I've been outlining it over these last few months and will start writing next month. I'm going to the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, AL for inspiration. I'm so excited about this next book because I finally get to incorporate my African American Studies degree from Howard. The spirit moved me so I designed the book cover this week.
  3. Thanks. I'll post about the new book in black lit. Thanks.
  4. Some do blog tours and podcasts. I'm looking for those who have solid media contacts. If you want, you can email me their names or have them contact me at elona@elonawashington.com. Thank you.
  5. Does anyone know a publicist who specializes in media? And doesn't mind working with small, independent publishing companies/
  6. @Troy Here's the survey for men. Please take it and share it with your network. Thanks! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZM36MV2
  7. Female respondents for now. Would you mind sharing? I only need 34 more females.
  8. Who remembers being told black folk don't read or if you want to hide information from black people, put it in a book? Lately, I found several articles that disprove those notions in addition to learning that the Pew Research Group stumbled upon the fact that college-educated black women read the most books. And it made me wonder about black women's reading habits. If you're an AA woman, please click on the link and take this 2-minute survey. When 100 respondents are recorded, everyone will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Target gift card. Thanks!! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FNGGNPB
