This weekend I traveled into NYC for RWA19’s Blogger Day and Literacy signing. Because I had a wedding the next day, I decided to skip the early morning Blogger activities and just focus on the networking event and then the booksigning later. At the networking event, I meet up with other bloggers I know which was awesome! And while waiting for the literacy signing, I had a great time chatting with the ladies sitting around me about the books we love. I also got to hangout with my favorite bookish friend and saw former Barnes and Noble coworkers!
For this signing, I wore my #WeNeedDiverseRomance tee-shirt and had a recommendation in mind if anyone asked for a diverse romance to read (and told a few people who didn’t ask!). My rec is Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert which isn’t released yet but everyone should read when it comes out!
Plus look at this amazing tweet by K.M. Jackson that I was included in!
It did my heart good seeing so many #WeNeedDiverseRomance tees at #RWA19 #RWA2019 These are just a few that I caught. I can't thank U ALL enough 4 the support. For those asking here is the @teespring link— Kwana aka K.M. Jackson (@KwanaWrites) July 28, 2019

My first stop at the Literacy Signing was Farah Heron. I’ve been waiting impatiently to read The Chai Factor and when my library didn’t have it, I forced myself to wait to buy it until the signing. I binge-read it yesterday and it was seriously so good!
Needless to say, I spent way too much money on books but it was totally worth and for a good cause! I’m thinking of going to a full RWA in the future for the blogging/networking opportunities but for now, I’m going to focus on more local and smaller book events!
I read The Chai Factor yesterday. What book should I read next?
