Announcing the Winner of the Raynetta Manees Book Contest!

I’m happy to announce that the winner of the Raynetta Manees book give-away contest is….drumroll…Andrea Rivers!

Andrea correctly answered the contest question: “What woman was the first Black person to sing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York?”

95c30/huch/1035/hm0594The answer is opera great Marian Anderson, who broke down a lot of racial barriers for later Black artists.  She performed at the Met on January 7, 1955.

The prize for the contest winner was to be a copy of my book, Follow Your Heart, but Andrea says she already has the Kindle version of that book, and wished to know when my book Fantasy was going up on Kindle since her paperback copy of it has “had it.”


FANTASY COVER BNFantasy will be going live as a Kindle book later this year, but since it will be a while yet, Andrea is receiving an autographed copy of Fantasy! (Which, BTW, features a plus size heroine)

Congratulations, Andrea!
