Announcing my satirical memoir
A lesson in marketing and creative fulfillment
Opportunity to opt out of this newsletter
Hey there boys and girls,
I’m excited to announce my satirical memoir “Dungeons ‘n’ Durags” is now available! This is the culmination of nearly two years of work. It’s a fun, funny, and poignant look at race relations, politics, and faith in America.

If you’ve ever felt like you didn’t fit in, this is a story you will relate to. And regardless of your political leaning, I think if you plow through the book to the end, you will find that it’s an honest look at multiple sides of various discussions happening in the country today. I make a fair amount of critiques outwardly as well as inward. If you have a sense of humor and thick skin, I think you’ll find it fun and refreshing. (Some of you may need thicker skin than others, depending on who you plan to vote for in November. LOL! ~ I promise to limit my use of “LOL” to no more than once or twice a quarter, if even that!)

A Lesson in Marketing and Creative Fulfillment
Every new author longs for the day they sign a literary agent. Part of the process of finding one is sending out book proposals and sample chapters. As funny and engaging as I think the book is, there’s a key aspect to it that doesn’t kick in until chapter 8. However, most lit agents only want the first 1-3 chapters as a sample to see if they’re interested. Learn about how I decided to handle this quandary in a manner that also happened to be creatively fulfilling.
