It's been almost three years since Country Fried Soul: Adventures in Dirty South Hip-Hop was released, and I'm not nearly done with the topic. If anything, my bond with Southern rap music has only deepened. I'll use this space as an outlet for continuing that interest.
But I also hope to be helpful to others in sharing my experiences as a first-time (and un-agented) author who wrote a book in less than six months without being committed in the process. I'll also share how I did my best to creatively promote and market it on zero budget!
I hope that Red Room will be a place where I can likewise obtain advice from other authors. I would like to build a career crafting books of surprising flavors. Outside of music, my newest area of interest is chocolate and confections and I sense at least one sweet book on the topic in my future. But I'm definitely also open to ideas (and offers!) to write beyond where I've already been . . .
