As the year 2015 comes to a close, most people like to review their year. Author Stormie Omartian said, "No matter how far off the path you have gotten from the plans and purpose God has for you, when you surrender your life to the Lord and declare your utter dependence upon Him, He carves a path from where you are to where you are supposed to be, and He sets you on it."
As we approach the new year of 2016, slow down and write. Start the new year off with a journal and capture your creative thoughts. This allows one to take more time to think and process recent life events. This is not only a great way to memorialize new year resolutions, but to analyze situations more creatively and make them happen…and if they don't happen, analyze why they did not happen.
Year 2015 in review for book events found Author Pamela Jarmon Wade's book availability at the Martin Luther King Holiday Celebration at The Zone (Houston), Author Expo & Book Fair at The Church Without Walls (Houston), National Black Book Festival at Fallbrook Church (Houston), Book Event in Barrett Station (Texas), Houston Children's Festival (Downtown Houston), and The Harlem Book Festival (New York). She is planning to add more book events to her agenda for 2016.
If you are a reader, writer, and/or aspiring writer…Pamela says, "Support author events with your presence and your dollars." One of the largest book festivals that takes place annually in Houston, Texas is the National Black Book Festival (NBBF) founded by Willie and Gwen Richardson. The best thing that one can do for an author is to tell others about their books. As you review the books that you read in 2015…did you tell anyone about them? If you attended a book event…did you bring someone with you? Did you buy anyone a book during the Christmas holiday season? Did you read to a child in 2015? As you review the year 2015 and prepare for 2016, plan to attend more book events in the new year. You are bound to find several good reads from the following genres: children, poetry, fictional, non-fiction, history, self-help, travel, fantasy, politics, romance, urban fiction, mystery, religious/faith, and teens/young adults.
