Recently Authors Victoria Christopher Murray and Reshonda Tate Billingsley made a visit to Medu Book Store in Atlanta, Georgia at the Greenbriar Mall. The Authors talked about their latest books and their new publishing ventures. Both are leading African-American Authors in the publishing industry who founded Brown Girls Publishing.

The Authors founded Brown Girls Publishing to help get the voices of other talented Writers out into mainstream media.  The partnership between the two Authors has been very productive. Reshonda’s book “Let The Church Say Amen” is set for film adaptation to be produced by Queen Latifah’s Flava Unit Productions, among others and Directed by Regina King. The film will include a cast of notable stars and entertainers, along with a cameo by Reshonda herself.

At Medu Bookstore in Atlanta, the Authors caught fans up with their latest works and introduced one of their new premiere Authors in the Brown Girls Publishing line up. Their latest book “Fortune and Fame” tells the story of Jasmine Cox Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams two first ladies who get caught up in a whirlwind of Drama, Murder, and Reality T.V. with a twist only the partnership of Billingsley and Murray could offer.

At the book signing and event, they shared an excerpt of the book with fans.  A small snippet from the reading was captured. Victoria Christopher Murray reads. Check out the video (below):
