November 21, 2019

Participate in National Novel Writing Month by writing a business book in 30 days. Book coach Vickie Gould will teach you how in this 6:30-8 p.m. workshop!

You will leave with a clear understanding of the best topic to pick for your business book — one that will grow your business for years to come. You will create your own personalized calendar to write your book in 30 days and learn a simple structure for the contents of your book. Tickets are $35.

You are invited to “Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser” Book Launch @DETWritingRoom w/@TenitaJEditor & author friends SEP 13 #motownwriters #michlit #michiganwriters

“Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser” Book Launch


Date And Time

Fri, September 13, 2019

6:30 PM – 9:30 PM EDT

Add to Calendar

Location

The Detroit Writing Room

1514 Washington Blvd.

203

Detroit, MI 48226

The Detroit Writing Room presents the book launch for “Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser.”

About this Event

You’ve said, “I do!” But, to what?

Many brides and grooms spend weeks, if not months, planning for the big day! The bride has to visit 19 different bridal shops to find that one perfect wedding dress. The centerpieces and bouquets have to be donned with the most exquisite flowers and accents. But after choosing the most quality linen, the finest cuisine and the most elaborate venue for the reception, many people realize they’ve planned for the wedding day—but failed to plan for the success of the marriage itself.

Once the walk down the aisle is over, many realize that they’ve said, “I do!” but they don’t even know to what!

In “Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser,” five individuals share candid snapshots of moments in time where their marriage seemed more like a roller coaster ride than a “happily ever after” fairytale. On the other side of, “I do!” these individuals soon realized that marriage is about much more than the first dance and cutting a cake!

You may have something old and something new. You’ve found something borrowed and something blue. But, are you prepared for the morning after?

About the event:

At this book launch and signing, there will be a panel talk by the authors featured in the book:

Coni Hookfin

Angie Green

Tenita Johnson

Jermaine Johnson

Natasha Crawford

Orlando Crawford

You’ll have an opportunity to hear their experiences and get your copy of “Marriage Uncut II” signed. The event is free to attend. The book will be available for purchase for $14.99.
