Our Virtual Book Tour enters a new phase today with the beginning of an ongoing, 2-week long, interactive chat at LibraryThing. I’m open to discuss whatever your little heart desires: Inheriting the Trade, Traces of the Trade, the legacy of slavery, healing from the trauma of historic oppressions, modern day slavery, present-day systemic racism, Jimmy Carter’s claims that racism is at the core of attacks on President Obama, books, films, you name it. This should be a fun one so I hope you’ll check in to the LibraryThing site from time to time between now and October 2.

There are still opportunities to win a copy of Inheriting the Trade. Enter today to win at The Author’s Assistant. Another will be given away soon to one of my Facebook friends.

Finally, check out Audio Book Stand, where you can listen to an excerpt from the audio book version of Inheriting the Trade (read by the author, of course) and listen to an interview I did with the fine folks at Brilliance Audio who published the audio version.

I look forward to chatting with you soon at LibraryThing.
