Betselling author KaShamba Williams: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Thank you to everyone who came out to show support of Bestselling author KaShamba Williams' trip to Mississippi this weekend.
We had a blast, and as our 27th author to host this year, we tried to do all we could to make the visit one she would remember.

We began day two visiting the bookstores in the city of Jackson. KaShamba was able to meet with the management teams at Barnes and Noble as well as Books-A-Million, signing books at each stop. (This is a hint that if you missed her at these spots you can get autographed copies.)

From there it was on to the Willie Morris Library where the Savvy Book Club was having their Thanksgiving dinner as well as a "3-for-1" with authors: KaShamba Williams and author Fon James in person and Bestselling author Francis Ray via conference call. Before we left the book discussion with Savvy we awarded them Conversations Book Club "Literary Achievement Award" for all they have done in the eight months since they were formed. (As always we thank Savvy Book Club for being a partner in our fight to encourage reading in Mississippi.)

The next couple of hours were spent at our final stop of the day--- Waldenbooks Metrocenter---and it was the icing on the cake. Many patrons were pleasantly surprised to meet the author behind so many of their favorite novels. You can get limited autographed copies of BLINDED, GRIMEY, DRIVEN, AT THE COURT'S MERCY, AROUND THE WAY GIRLS 2, GIRLS FROM DA HOOD 2, GIRLS FROM DA HOOD 3 and her teen book from our literary partner, Waldenbooks Metrocenter, while they last.

With the busy holiday season kicking into full gear, Conversations Book Club will host three other authors this month: Mississippi author Voncele Savage (Saturday, November 24, 2007) and Bestselling authors Kendra Norman-Bellamy and Brittney Holmes (Friday, November 30-Saturday December 1, 2007). Look out for their schedules at and make sure to visit
As always: Enjoy your day. Enjoy your life. Enjoy your world.
