Cardyn Brooks, outreach coordinator for The Write Women Book Fest, is a reading fiend, compulsive writer, swim enthusiast, and inventor. She created the "Trope Spin" and "Literary Canon Fodder" book review columns for MediaDiversified.org, and riffs on bookish topics on BlerdyBingeReader.blogspot.com. She's reviewed books for InDtale.com and currently reviews books for RomanceDailyNews.com. She writes edgier erotic fiction as C. X Brooks (in which the X honors her enslaved ancestors who were forbidden by law to learn to read and write). Her most recent title is When She's on Top by C. X Brooks, published by BlackOpalBooks.com.
Shai August is a country girl with a big imagination, more than a touch of wanderlust and a never-ending desire to live in both an RV traveling the world and a library. Her love language is words of affirmation followed by books, bacon, and bourbon. She's a born and bred Louisiana native, but has lived in ten states and visited forty-two. She is fluent in English, sarcasm, and memes. Her goal is to write face-paced, character driven paranormal fiction for women of color.
