Soul Expression Tour Update
I'm finally back in my own house! I feel as if I've been on the road forever. But it's all good. My latest jaunt was the Soul Expressions Bus Tour sponsored by Levy Home Entertainment. This was my second year attending and I must say a good time was had by all. Some of the authors from last year were in attendance and we had some new faces too. I got to meet L. Devine, Wahida Clarke, Vickie Stringer and Marilynn Griffith (who is the funniest woman I have ever met). She kept us in stitches the whole weekend. Angela Benson joined us this year as well as my good friend Bernice McFadden aka Geneva Holliday. The old favorites returned as well: Rochelle Alers, Brenda Jackson and Beverly Jenkins.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Brenda, Beverly, Marilynn and Bernice for my blogtalk show (which airs on Sundays at 6 EST) but for some reason the recording did not upload last week! To say I am distraught is an understatement. I hope to be able to recover the interview soon.
The fans on the tour were great!
I'm looking forward to my next trip which will be the Baltimore Book Festival and then the Capital Book Fest. I hope to see your friendly faces out there!
