Essence Relationships Editor Demetria Lucas hosted her signature "Cocktails with Belle" event last night in NYC at INK48. Her first book entitled, "A Belle In Brooklyn" hit stores June 14th!
At Essence, I landed a monthly column in the magazine about dating and relationships. It was pretty popular. I was also still blogging and my site was doing really well. I knew from my book editing days that a wide-platform was a bonus in publishing, so I pitched a book idea based on my blog to Atria/Simon & Schuster. My first book, “A Belle in Brooklyn: The Go to Girl for Advice on Living Your Best Single Life," was published in 2011.
