I slipped on skinny jeans, a black tunic sweater, and my beautiful hat. Oh yeah. I don’t want to spoil the surprise with the color and style, but let’s just say heads were turning as I sashayed down the mall’s corridors. Hee-Hee!
I tell you… the things this sistah will do for attention.
I stepped into my favorite store, walked up to a sales associate, struck a pose, and said, “I need a pair of shoes to match this hat.” She was so young the first thing that came to mind was, she don’t know nothing about this. Our grandmothers have been showcasing fine hats for generations! Church services, social gatherings, picnics, and teas.
The twenty-something chick grinned knowingly then replied, “Follow me.”
If you haven’t already bought your ticket for the Fly Hat Society Luncheon then you better hurry because we’re almost sold out. I guarantee it’s an event you won’t want to miss.
See you there, and don’t forget your hat.

To get tickets, go to this blog at http://hotsouthernwriters.blogspot.com/ and you'll see the buy link on the left-hand side of the blog.
Besides meeting the authors (Denise Jeffries, Yvette Hines/Monique Lamont, Angie Daniels, AlTonya Washington, Cheris Hodges, Iris Bolling, Loretta R. Walls, Kianna Alexander, and myself), wear your flyest hat. That's right. I said come in there wearing your Sunday's best topper. The other host authors and I will be judging on the best hat. The winner will get an awesome prize! And did I mention that attendees will get all types of goodies like free books and free books and did I mention free books? Between books and prizes, that'll pay for your registration.
Have I sold you on the event yet? Oh, and there will be some author readings. I could do my "shit/fuck" scene from my contemporary interracial BDSM erotic romance novel Corporate Needs. For some reason, that scene is a crowd pleaser. *LOL*
So besides readings, free books and a great lunch, we have so much more planned for you readers.
I'm sure you're asking if us host authors will be wearing hats. Of course! After months of trying to decide what to wear, I finally figured it out. I can't tell you what the hat will look like. You'll have to come to the event to see it!
Okay, now that business is done, let me get to some other stuff. I have been writing like crazy lately. The people have spoken and true to my word, I'm back to writing interracial BDSM with my alpha heroes. Yeah, I missed them, too. Now the next hurdle: getting the stories published. Wish me luck!
Speaking of writing, I have to get back to it. Hopefully I'll see a lot of you next month at the luncheon.

Even though I'm the one who makes up the blog schedule, I'm totally late today. Why, you ask? A very fragile balance exists between my personal needs and wants, my marriage, my family, and my household. On a day like today, when I've been running all day and am exhausted, the balance is lost as the scales tip to one end of the spectrum. So, this post will be brief.
I'd like to remind you all that tickets are on sale for the Fly Hat Society Luncheon. This is our fist event, and we want it to be fun and to be a success. If you are in the NC/VA/TN/SC/GA area, please consider joining us, and bring a few friends. We will be glad to have you along! Grab your tickets by clicking the Paypal button in the sidebar. I got my hat and am ready to rock it.
On another note, I have good news. I have recently inked a publishing deal with a very well established e-house, so I am on an official deadline- yet another reason this post must be brief. I am very excited to see where this new venture will lead. I also have another potentially big deal in the pipeline, as I have just sent a requested full manuscript to a very well established print house, known for their African American romance imprint. Fingers crossed on that one...it's so close I can taste it! So for the forseeable future, there has to be less socializing and more of this:
Until Next Time,
