October is half over already…where does the time go?!
To say life as been busy lately is putting it mildly. My first-ever virtual book celebration, Louisville Book Festival, is coming together beautifully and I continue to be blown away by the level of talent and thought leaders who will be joining us via Zoom on October 23rd and 24th.
When I have a moment to spare, I put on my Children’s Book Author hat, shift gears, and work passionately to spread the news of my books and how important is it to support local authors, women-owned businesses, and brick-n-mortar stores during this upcoming holiday season.
October also has something NEW and BIG for Make A Way Media. I am very excited to share the news of a HUGE campaign that I am doing with iRead Book Tours!
As you can see from the graphic above, this tour will be filled with unique and exclusive stories, interviews, and giveaways. Every “stop” on this tour is a little different!
The Books Included in the Tour:
In The Nick of Time is about a little brown boy who saves Christmas, but this one sweet story has an additional layer of “special.” I truly wanted a book that featured a positive character that looked like my son, Nick. As a black mom, I know the importance of sharing books with my son that include characters he can admire, but also directly relate to.

This Is The Earth: A recent Purple Dragonfly Award First Place winner, Cummings uses bold and bright illustrations in This is the Earth to share a message of peace, love, respect, compassion, inclusion.
Published in early 2019, the book’s message bears repeating: peace is meant for all of us and it is everyone’s responsibility to care for each other like the united family that we really are. This exceptional and timely book shares the reality that we are all sharing this world that we call home instead of acting as though each continent, each, country, and each neighborhood is like a completely different planet. Within the pages of This is the Earth, readers will discover thought and conversation-invoking concepts on issues and struggles that have our world at odds with each other. Kids and adults will love the lyrical message and thoughtful artwork that reinforces the fact that every human being is our neighbor on Planet Earth; a place also known as Home.
