Money Mondays

All positive ventures bring profit.
Double D (Rich's Brother)


First order of business is some well deserved kudos for
Diane Dorce' aka Mizrepresent.

When I tell you Miz "represented", I kid you not. The Atlanta book party was niiice. For now you will have to enjoy photos, taken by the uber-talented Tony Oh! but as soon as I get back to the STL, I will share the video footage from the party as well as my time hanging out with the Raw Dawg Buffalo on game night over drinks and all around good vibes.
Folk is the realest, wait till you see the video.

Someone might be wondering, now what does this have to do with Money Mondays? I'm glad you asked. Most of the time when we think in terms of profit we think in terms of gettin' paid monetarily. Well, while celebrating the Bloggers' Delight Book event, I was reminded that profit comes in the form of people as well. In that case, this past weekend I was paid handsomely. First of all, I felt like I have been knowing a lot of the bloggers that attended the event for quite some time and for those that I haven't known, they presented a very warm reception. Don't take the term "blog fam" loosely, there are some really great people behind these blogs. It has been my great pleasure to get to know some of them more intimately.

Weekend in pictures

When I pulled into the parking lot of the Sky Lofts for my arrival at
The Grounds Coffee House, I was immediately greeted by the
beautiful smile and presence of

Jali of Jali's House.


My long time friend April C - Literary Felonies was in the house.
She ripped it with the reading of her excerpt. She definitely got the crowd HOT!

I have to admit, I always enjoy the company of my girl CapCity.
She's cool as a fan. Thanks for the Go-Go music.


I think I found me another road dog. Jewells is too funny, but you have to pay close attention to fully enjoy and understand this diamond of a woman.


What I love most about blogging: The fella's hold it down.

Blog Deep
Raw Dawg, Rich, and 12 Kyle

Raw and Rich - Blog Fathers

Ain't no crush like a Skool Boi Crush
and when you have a
Gemini Girl
by your side, life is twice the fun.


I'm going to break for now. Tony Oh! dropped 39 photos on me and it's been a long weekend. I will share more with you as the week progresses. But before I go. I wanna give a shout out to Anissa, Jewell's girl. She hung like she was blog fam. She was real good people to meet. Hope you enjoy the book and thanks for coming out.

and Kyle's partner - Boogie

Man, it was great meeting you, Rich and your wife. She's just as pretty as she wants to be. Your words were so sweet...a diamond of a woman...wow=) Now you're going to have folks paying really close attention. Can't have everybody knowing my secret looks (smile).

I'm glad you didn't say anything about Strip and the mishap with our waiter;)

Oh and Anissa had a wonderful time. Her and your wife and your story really connected. She hasn't put the book down yet!

Looks like all of you had a good time. Common interests can always bring people together in a great way. Sorry I missed that one, hopefully will catch one of the book signings soon.

Hope you enjoyed your visit to the very hot ATL!

Suite B said...

I swear when I see pics from events like this, it makes me hate that I've been put on a budget and now my travel has been restricted until after the wedding.

Make sure you give me a heads up when you do another event in St. Louis.

sista gp said...

You all inspire us wanna-be published authors.
Congrats on a successful event.

Looks like you guys had lots of fun. Wish I could have been there. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet Miz.
