From the Desk of Vanessa Riley...
Zoom at Harvard Book Store

Vanessa here,

It has been a busy couple of weeks!

First, thank you for your support. Thank you for telling everyone about A Duke, The Lady, and A Baby. Please keep it up. It helps so much.

What has happened in the interim? I have been on at least twenty Zooms. This photo is a Zoom at Harvard Bookstore with Farrah Rochon, Talia Hibbert, and Kennedy Ryan. It was moderated by Christina Tucker, Aug. 22.

It's been fun, because I've been able to speak to a lot of readers. Nonetheless, Zoom can be draining. Make sure give yourself a break sometimes and don't double book.

A Duke The Lady and a Baby was reviewed in the New York Times. First of all, I screamed. Then I bought three copies. Then I missed my mom and went to her headstone and read it to her.

I know the stone is an earthly memorial. My mom is with the Lord, looking down at all her family, but it's time like these that you want to celebrate and remember loved ones who have been instrumental in your success. Love you, Mama!!!

Ok, now back to the joyful part of this email!!

My tips for positive vibes.

  1. Celebrate everything, big or small.
  2. Celebrate getting out of bed. It's hard some days.
  3. Celebrate friends--a call, a chat, a social distance visit.

Don't lose connection to people.


I enjoy seeing pictures of my books in the wild. Make sure you tag me when you post on social media.
