Are you planning to attend the Essence Music Festival July 4th weekend in New Orleans? The Essence Music Festival is one of the largest of its kind, attracting more than 500,000 attendees. This year I look forward to singing, dancing, and, of course, honoring my duties as Twitter’s #JulyWritingChallege leader. As part of the fun, I am giving away signed copies of The Truth About Awiti to 10 lucky attendees. Look for me at Coca-Cola’s ‘Coke Crawl’ and you may be one of the lucky winners. I look forward to meeting fellow writers and readers!
