Six Weeks Til You Can’t Tell Me Nothing! And My Launch Event is in Brooklyn!
Today is exactly six weeks until I’M JUDGING YOU: The Do Better Manual drops on the world. It’s my debut book that is a collection of essays on life, culture, social media and fame. Basically, I’m talmbout why we are all ridiculous, and how I am giving us side-eye for the way we behave. It is my voice in print. It is my blog in steroids. It is 100% new content.
And then I did the audiobook, and you know I had to narrate it myself. Y’all might revolt if you heard someone else’s voice coming through the speakers.
This book is also the thing I set as a top goal for myself to the point where when folks ask me “so what’s next?” all I can say is “I don’t know.” This book I wrote, that I am so proud of. This book drops six weeks from today and I am so excited!!!
But really, the countdown begins now, and in the coming weeks, you’ll be seeing me talk more about it. We are at the starting line. Writing a book is like 20% actually doing the writing. The rest is editing and promoting. And if a book drops and no one buys it, did it really drop?
I’M JUDGING YOU is dope. You know why I know that? Because some of the people who got advance copies, and are respected authors themselves text me while they read my book to tell me “kudos.”
I don’t know too many bullshitters so if they say it’s good, then dambit it is good.
Like… y’all ain’t gon be able to tell me shit. Because I’ma reply with “But I’m an author.” Y’all will roll your eyes and I’ll be all “I don’t see you. I see my book.” It’s gonna be awesome and I’m gonna be a mess.
So yes, I just wanted to squeal and get y’all hype. AND to publicly announce the info for my launch stop. I will be doing a national tour in the fall to celebrate this book, and most of my stops will have me and another influencer chatting it up and getting our lives.
For the special people who subscribe to my newsletter, this isn’t new news, because they found out about this almost 2 weeks ago. THIS IS WHAT I MEAN BY HIGHLY EXCLUSIVE. You should subscribe because I’ll be dropping more cool news there before yelling it from the rooftops.
ANDDDDDD 10 people who are subscribed to my newsletter will win a card that lets them listen to 1 hour of my audiobook. YUP.
So… my book launch is happening ON Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at PowerHouse Arena Bookstore in Brooklyn, from 7-9pm. I’ll be in conversation with Crissle from the mega-popular podcast The Read! GET HYPED. We’ll be ki-king it up, and then I’ll sign books, hand out JudgeyPops and have a good time. RSVP!
I am really looking forward to this because Crissle is someone I really respect, as a writer and a cultural critic. She’s the perfect person to sit across from me so this will be a good time.
And since you’re here, I also wanted to give you a heads up on other dates that are confirmed already for my book signings and tour stops in September.
Washington DC – September 22
Baltimore, MD – September 25 (Baltimore Book Festival)
Chicago, IL – September 30 (party), October 4 (book signing)
