HERE WE GO A-WASSAILING-Thirty days of blog visiting (@CarleenBrice)

I love Christmas and visiting blogs so I thought why don’t I share these joys with others? So join me throughout the month of December as I make a wassailing to blogs and websites I find inspiring, funny, educational or plainly a must read.

My first visit will be to Carleen Brice and her site White Readers Meet Black Authors, but first let’s have a little history on the wassailing as provided through Wikipedia.
The House-Visiting wassail, very much similar to caroling, is the practice of people going door-to-door singing Christmas carols. Here We Come A-Wassailing".
Carleen writes her blog in the hope of enticing readers to step beyond the segregated aisles of the bookstores and try books written by African-Americans and people of other ethnicities. You can even read interviews & posts from authors of every color and I really like this premise. Some of the best books and greatest authors are missed because of misconception. Who knows, you may even find yourself buying great Christmas gifts. Carleen even has a very amusing video featured on her blog as an invitation to readers.
In addition to White Readers Meet Black Authors, Carleen can be found atThe Pajama Gardener (her personal blog), on Facebook, on Twitter and at www.carleenbrice.com. Contact her here.

Carleen Brice’s debut novel, Orange Mint and Honey, was an Essence “Recommended Read” and a Target “Bookmarked Breakout Book.” For this book, Carleen received the 2009 First Novelist Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association and the 2008 Break Out Author Award at the African American Literary Awards Show.

In February of this year, Orange Mint and Honey premiered on the Lifetime Movie Network as "Sins of the Mother," I loved it. Her second novel, Children of the Waters is a book about race, love and family. Carleen is also the author of two nonfiction books, Lead Me Home: An African American’s Guide Through the Grief Journey, and Walk Tall: Affirmations for People of Color,  To read more about Carleen and spread some wassailing spirit visit her site. There's even a contest in effect until December 19th.
