My Black Girl Passion experience on November 11, 2017 was just amazing. I know most folks would have posted a blog within one day or so. However, I need to just take a moment to reflect and celebrate my first book expo. Black Girl Passion event gave me the opportunity to meet other authors and small business owners. I am so proud of myself as I went around and introduced myself to every vendor and author at the event.
Black Girl Passion to me means sisterhood, inspiration, empower, and motivation for beautiful black women that look like me following their passion and dreams. We are a unique women who hold treasures and gifts. I loved seeing these sisters driven by their gifts and passions.
I must admit I was nervous but I got comfortable as I watched my fellow sisters introduce themselves to guests and new readers. I learned some pitch skills from my fellow sisters as guests stopped by to inquire about my novella. It was a great experience as the seasoned authors offered me tips about pitching my book to guests.
I am a new author and this is my first event that I attended since the release of my novel Deceitful Secrets on October 23, 2017. My daughter set up my table uniquely to showcase my novel to attract new readers.
The set up of the event and the entertainment was beautiful. I loved KLove The Poet, this sister was dope and deep. The dance performance was authentic expression of a movement. The hostesses were phenomenal as they greeted and supported the vendors.
I am feeling blessed and thankful for the experience because it was inspiring, empowering, and confirmation for me to keeping soaring high with my dreams and goals as a beautiful black woman. Thank you to the ladies of Book Euphoria for putting together a beautiful event.
