"Caledonia's Daughters", our book of futuristic short stories about seven Black women's galactic adventures is still getting great reviews, is also available on Amazon, and would make a great gift during Women's Herstory Month, National Poetry Month and Mother's Day.
Poetry is still high on Straight Out Scribes list of priorities which is also the title of our still relevant CD, "PRIORITIES" available on Amazon. We are still considering a new CD and are shopping studios with high quality and affordable prices. Recommendations are welcome.
