How frequently do you update your site? Fairly Frequently
Is your site designed for reader interaction? Yes
Post of note, something in particular you want readers to check out:
On January 9th, 2010 my debut novel, SUGAR will celebrate it's 10th anniversary. It is my hope that the book will sell 10,000 copies between now and that date.
100 words or less how would you describe your work?
I write informative, entertaining, lyrical, thought provoking novels that often have a historical slant.
100 words on less please share your thoughts on the writing life:
I love this life. I love the people I meet in and outside of my stories.
Women of color writers - We are fearless storytellers. Our writings are filled with a strength and passion that the "publishing machine" finds unsettling - hence the slow and systematic silencing of writers.
Children and reading - If we don't encourage our children to read and experience the world through the pages of books - then they will never want to physically experience the world and we will have a nation of stagnant, ignorant adults.
Bernice, thank you for allowing us to promote and support your work.
