Taymika G. Byrd, author of Crescent City Connection celebrates the launch of her new novel with a party to generate awareness and support in the fight against sexual assault.
By: Taymika G. Byrd
To celebrate the launch of her latest novel, Taymika will host a book launch party from two p.m. to six p.m. on Saturday, March 29th. For details, visit: www.readonpress.com/
In an effort to increase awareness and further the fight against sexual assault, Taymika is partnering with Crescent House of the New Orleans Family Justice Center, Write On Press, local business and community leaders to expand the discussion of how to support the efforts to reduce instances of sexual assault and increase resources to aid victims of this crime.
In addition, Taymika and her publishers at Write On Press have committed to donate a portion of all sales during Sexual Assault Awareness Month (this April) to the Crescent House to support their programs.
The novel features Colette Dupre’; the central female protagonist of the Crescent City Connection world. In this story, Colette is the target of a sexual assault during the Mardi Gras season. The reader is carried through a roller coaster ride of action, drama and suspense as Colette tries to cope with the trials of her assault while the antagonist continually harasses her.
The story climaxes with a shoot out at the Zulu ball on Lundi Gras! With twists and turns, heart gripping drama and suspense, and just enough history and humor to highlight the real culture of the Crescent City, this novel will certainly be a favorite.
Taymika will offer discounts on orders of Crescent City Connection at the party as well as autographed copies of her previous book, Skye Fall
Ms. Byrd will be performing two dramatic readings from Crescent City Connection as well as a reading from her next feature project, Tales from the River City (Available October 2014).
Attendees of the party will be treated to refreshments, an open discussion and opportunities to win frame ready cover art and a chance to appear as a central character in Taymika’s next novel!
