What is Pound 7?
One afternoon, while avoiding her responsibilities, bestselling author, Monique D. Mensah, came up with a fun and quirky idea that would change the literary world. She called six of her closest and most talented author friends, Nakia R. Laushaul, Traci Bee, Pheare Alexander, Gregg Burton, Jumata Emill Jones, and Dasaya Cates, and # 7 was born. Get it? “# 7.” Seven authors, and the “pound” … well, it just sounds cool! This is how it works: One of the authors will start a story. It could be about anything, but rest assured, it’ll be GOOD. The author will write one chapter, and then leave it. The next author will write the following chapter, picking up where the last one left off, and the next author will pick up after that one, and so on, just like the game you used to play as kids. You remember that game at summer camp, right? Well, they’re doing it with a whole new spin! The seven authors won’t discuss the plot between them; so none of them will know where the story is going. That will keep it fresh and interesting, and probably a little crazy!
Beginning October 7th, the # 7 team will post a new chapter every week until the story is complete. With seven unique voices, you can expect a touch of dramatic suspense, a pinch of emotional drama, a little urban flavor, some paranormal creepiness, a dab of blood curdling horror, a few psychological twists, and some hot and steamy romantica. When you stir it all up, you get one juicy story. Sounds good, huh? You have no idea, but the cool thing is … neither do they!
