The majority of Americans (80%) want to be an author, but simply wanting to write a book doesn't get the dishes done. Within the first month of publication, first-time author Roxane Battle hit the top 20 bestseller list in her specific category on Amazon.

Join us on Thursday, July 16th at 7:30 a.m. at Capsule Café for a continental breakfast among connections new and old, and the opportunity to engage in a conversation with Roxane as she reveals the journey to writing her successful book and what she learned along the way.
