The 2018 Author’s Brunch @ Motorcity Soundboard #Detroit | Oct 6th through 7th | #michiganwriters #motownwriters

D.A Rhodes, a Chicago-based award-winning author, has announced that her newly
established nonprofit will oversee the Third Annual ‘Author’s Brunch’ in Detroit.
(CHICAGO)  –  The Third Annual ‘Author’s Brunch’ is set to take place Sunday, October
7, and D. A. Rhodes and her team are working hard at making sure this one is more
special than ever. This year there will be a special tribute to the legendary, media
personality, Cliff Russell, who hosted the Author’s Brunch from its inception until his
untimely death in 2018.

The ‘Author’s Brunch’ will run from 1 to 5 p.m., and will take place at the Motor City
Hotel/Casino, 2901 Grand River Ave. Hosted by radio personality and Program Director,
Randi Myles of Praise 102 7. The featured authors are Senior Editor of Essence
Magazine, Charreah Jackson, author of “Boss Bride”, and Former Fox 2 News
Reporter, Al Allen, author of “We’re Standing By.” Each will be in attendance, and read
excerpts from their books and head a Q&A panel afterwards.

Rhodes, now an award-winning Chicago-based author, stated that if you’re not motivated
and prepared financially to promote your product, you have to find other ways to get your
work noticed. “It’s difficult to walk through certain doors, sometimes almost impossible,”
she said. “That’s why I created avenues for myself to promote my first book. I joined the
Chicago Black Authors Network, then went to black-owned bookstores talking up my book
to see if I could get it on their shelves. It’s tough.”

When Rhodes first started out as a writer, she found it difficult to get her name known and
taken seriously in the industry. “As an independent author, I was always looking for new
ways to promote my own work,” she said. “In the process I found there were other authors
who needed a platform to promote their books as well. I figured why not have an event
where we can all come together, share our work, and do our own networking.”
The ‘Rhodes Literary Group’ was created to inspire authors of all ages to pursue
