On the Road with Go, Tell Michelle

We are continuing our book tour this summer and have added two very exciting venues just recently. On July 15th, we will be one of the featured authors at the NAACP’s Author’s Pavilion. (Check out their website at for our photos) The NAACP is observing its 100th Anniversary and this year’s convention promises to be another historic milestone in that organization’s century of service. President Barack Obama is scheduled to address the Convention on its final day, July 16th. We plan to be in the audience with a book or two!

In August, we will travel to Tampa, Florida to attend the National Association of Black Journalist’s Conference and participate in their Author’s Show Case. The Author’s Show Case is scheduled during the conference which will be held from August 5th to 9th.

NABJ is an association of journalists, students and media-related professionals that provides quality programs and services year-round to benefit black journalists worldwide. We don’t know the exact date for our signing yet, but will update you when we are informed.

Both of these venues offer exciting new opportunities to spread the word about Go, Tell Michelle to broader audiences, who can connect to our message. We are encouraged by the access to these new platforms to spread that message.

We want to extend a special thanks to Gwendolyn Osborne, a very special lady we just recently met at the Book Expo in New York City in May. Gwendolyn, in the true spirit of sisters helping sisters, reached out to us and gave us the assistance we needed to connect to the NABJ and NAACP. We’ll have more to say about sister networks later, but we rank Gwendolyn up at the top as a sister network all by herself!
