Y’all know me. Author. CEO at FreedomInk Publishing. Avid reader. Literary Philanthropist. I’m all about the words. What then is the one word I’d use to describe the 2015 Strut Awards? P-O-W-E-R-F-U-L. There was an abundance of beautiful, intelligent, sophisticated women. Women that are serious about elevating themselves and others. This came as no surprise to me. Although I have missed the past two annual events, I was fortunate to participate as an award recipient via the very first ceremony. Since then, each year that has gone by, some member of FreedomInk Publishing or the company itself, has been recognized for the literary efforts we’re putting forth in the world.
Dr. Darcova Triplett, the Mistress of Strut, is the mastHERmind behind the Strut movement. The motto: To walk in our purpose, on purpose, with confidence, competence and conviction.
Darcova is a Woman that exudes the very essence of the motto and she openly embraces the embodiment of the motto’s foundation when she recognizes the drive and determination in other women! FreedomInk Author, Courtney ‘Phoenix’ White, received an award for her literary awesomeness and for her strides in liberating women worldwide, sexually and vocally! Kudos to Phoenix on this award well deserved. Thank you Darcova for once again for offering FreedomInk that extended platform. Authors are a quirky bunch, but we are proudly doing our part to change the world through our fiction, nonfiction and poetry.
I personally was proud to be amongst so many amazing individuals. FreedomInk Publishing was a 2015 Strut Vendor. Several of the Authors attended the event and represented the company well. Thanks to Trinettte Collier, Dawn Miller, Mellie Miller and Courtney ‘Phoenix’ White for standing with me! And a super duper shout out to my husband. Jeremy, thank you for holding down the fort when the Authors dispersed and I made my way through the room, networking and mingling and supporting other vendors. You too are #TeamFreedomInk. Yes my Team is the best and as for Strut…
Darcova, I’m already making plans for the 2016 ceremonies and festivities. I know you’re gonna step it up another notch and the next Strut event will be even more P-O-W-E-R-F-U-L!
Y’all check out ‘Anybody’s Somebody’ by Phoenix, as well as the Author’s 2nd urban, erotic fiction, ‘Teach Me’. Both books are available now wherever amazing books are sold! http://freedomink365.com/the_books
