BSB is so blessed to be connected to sister readers all over! In Diem’s Diamond FB Group, we were introduced to a wonderful series of Black Witches. This series had us in awe! Black every-thang was presented and presented extremely well! NOLA history and culture showed up and showed out in this read. Find out from Yappin’ Yanna why this series rocked the way it did! Check out the video for all the inspiration behind the books, laughs and insightful comments about the characters that can’t be forgotten.
Bourbon Street Bookers is now on several platforms. We’ve added another fun way to connect with what’s going on with BSB. We’re on TikTok! When social media isn’t an option for members, we can be followed through Goodreads and Amazon for book recommendations. Additionally, we can be followed for conversation in the Clubhouse Audio app.
Congratulations to our March Author of the Month, Ashantay Keys!
Ashantay Keys was born and raised in California. (Although some have said she sounds as if she’s from the South.) At an early age, she discovered her love of reading. Years later, what started out as something therapeutic, her writing rapidly grew into a creative passion with words. Her writing is raw; sometimes gritty, she pens controversial issues and what she calls true fiction with fictional characters that sometimes feels like reality. In September of 2020, she released her first romance novella, WIP (Work In Progress.) Now with more than eighteen books, novelettes and novellas combined and written in multiple genres, Ashantay Keys doesn’t see herself stopping anytime soon. She’s more determined than ever to create more black love with beautiful but flawed black men and continuously bring that BDE to the pages of a book.
When not writing, Ashantay spends her time reading, hanging with her son/family, watching the ID Channel, Law & Order SVU, 20/20, Dateline or 48 Hours Mystery. You can even find her at her local Barnes and Noble bookstore.
To my Double “A” friends, Ayanna and Allegra, and members of BSB, I am humbly honored that you chose me. I thank you for giving my work a chance. I thank you for the love and support you graciously give to the literary world. I thank you for allowing a space where I’m able to share my books and have fun. Your presence is much appreciated.
