  1. I wrote a blog post about 5 uplifting novels to read during the time of COVID-19. Obviously, we all need to be inform and stay safe while dealing with the virus. However, I do believe reading some good uplifting novels is needed as well. My blog post features non-Black authors but I would like to get some black author recommendations as well. Please recommend your favorite uplifting novels.
  2. I'm currently reading Paradise by Toni Morrison. I'm about halfway through it and this is my third time reading a Morrison novel (Jazz and Song of Solomon) are the other two books I've read by her. Morrison makes you work as a reader and you have to pay attention closely. I will share a full review when I finish.
  3. I was made aware of this site a couple of years ago. I'm an indie author with four books published and trying to learn how to make it a viable business. I will begin to visit this site more going forward. However, I do believe the conversations I have read on the forums have not made want to jump and type a post. I love to talk about reading fiction and power of stories in one's life. I like to talk the business of publishing as well. I don't have any big reasons why I don't post more on this site. I will have to make a better effort.
  4. As a published author of 5 books, I did not know about this Literary Chitlin Circuit. I want to participate on this circuit in 2020. Thanks for posting about this.
  5. I would like to request a review for my latest fantasy novel, Diondray's Roundabout, set in the world of Kammbia. Author's Name: Marion Hill Book Title: Diondray's Roundabout (Kammbia #3) Publication Date: March 18th, 2019 ISBN: 978-0998761244 Synopsis: Could he be wrong? When Diondray Azur first discovered the sacred Book of Kammbi, he struggled to believe where his destiny might be leading him. The ancient book foretold of a descendant who would come from one of the greatest leaders in the history of Kammbia, and bring about a restoration of peace and unity between the estranged North and South regions of the nation. Even though evidence strongly pointed to it, Diondray refused to believe that he could be the one spoken of in the prophecy. But eventually, he could no longer deny the possibility. As Diondray begins to embrace his calling, he soon realizes that others are not so quick to believe in him either. Despite his best efforts, the religious council that governs all of Northern Kammbia, in the city of Issabella, does not believe he is the one who will fulfill the prophecy. Frustrated by their lack of understanding and refusal to see any other way but their own, Diondray leaves the city of Issabella behind. He is then summoned to the South for a chance to prove that he is indeed the one. Hoping that the leaders of the South will be more receptive to his message, Diondray sets out once more. Traveling with only two of his original five companions, he journeys to three of the main cities in Southern Kammbia. Upon arrival, however, he quickly learns that the cities of the South are nothing like those he encountered in the North. The people are worldly and have completely different beliefs– if at all. Struggling with the fact that no one wants to listen to him or heed the teachings of the sacred book, Diondray begins to question his own validity. He wonders if maybe he isn’t the one meant to fulfill the prophecy after all. However, his connection to a mysterious leopard provides a pathway for Diondray to connect to the people of Southern Kammbia. Will Diondray succeed in his quest? Or will he be influenced by the people and culture of the Southern region and turn his back on fulfilling the prophecy all together? There is only one way to find out. Diondray’s Roundabout is the thrilling third book set in the world of Kammbia. Thanks in advance for your consideration!
