This month is set to be an exciting one. Last month, I organized my First Annual Celebrating African American History Month Giveaway. The multi-author, multi-genre event was a blast. Now, it's the first day of March and the beginning of Women's History Month. Just as the study and celebration of the people and culture of African descent does not begin and end in February, nor does the recognition of the important role of women in history, as well as contemporary times, is limited to this single month.
We celebrate and honor those who've paved the way for us--through blood, sweat, and tears. And we pay homage to ourselves and each other who model social justice and womanhood for the next generation of women. In that vein, this giveaway will not only celebrate 43 awesome female authors, writing in 8 different genres, but the power and might of female characters in novels.
