Seven years and one month ago, I began a journey of writing a book. At the time when I chose to do it, I was undergoing a lot of changes in my life. I had recently been laid off from Allstate Insurance and I really wasn't sure what direction to go in. At first, I did all of the necessary things to get reemployed--even registrating to take a course in Real Estate, but I had money still coming in so...a thought prompted me to begin writing a book. The grind of working 9-5 had started to get to me and I wanted to do something that could change my life--for the better.
For over 6 years, I had been a topic contributor to a popular website community and had been saving my discussions for a few years. Upon looking back at some of the discussions and responses; I realized that if I took these discussions and expanded them; I'd have a very interesting book. A lot of the discussions centered on the relationship between Black men and women. The birth of my book began from a thread I had created originally entitled, A Love Letter To My Black Mandingos. Over several tweaks of the title, I finally settled on A Journey Into The Mind of A Black Woman: In Search of Black Men With Purpose.
I completed the book this August and I am in process of getting query letters out to Literary Agents.
Everyone wants to become a best sellilng author, and I'm no different, but what I truly want is for people to GET WHAT I'M SAYING...
