Hi all,

I'm new here and am so excited to have found this vibrant AA writer's space!

I'm hoping that all of you will show a new sister a little love and read my manuscript. I'm about to self-publish a Humor Memoir titled, "Daddy's Gonna Buy That Baby a Jaguar." But before I go to print, I need objective feedback from YOU and YOU, too!!

It's a fast read, only 20 essays, and ANY little portion of it you could read would be appreciated.

If you want to take a look, just drop me a line at info@ViqiFrench.com, and I'll send it to you right away.

My Website is: ViqiFrench.com

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from a few of you.

Cool site, Viqi!
Read the excerpts from the website and I liked what I saw.

Thanks, YvetteP, for checking out my site! And thanks, too, for reading the excerpts and responding.

By the way, are you aware of many/any other African American women writing in the humor memoir genre?

Don't know, Viqi. Mahogonay Anais would be someone for you to ask. I know now's not a good time for her, with her mother being terminally ill. In the meantime, you might want to check out the site literarymamas.com. Not just Black women and more focussed on women who are mothers who write, but you may find something there. Good luck.

Yvettep:

Thanks for the heads-up on literarymamas.com. That's not one I was familiar with, but will definitely check it out.
