About her book
Dear August, Love August is a collection of emotional, thought-provoking, and humorous poetry, quotes, and monologues. You will get a glimpse into the spirit, heart, and mind of August Love.
August Love is the type of person who loves spending time with friends one on one or small groups yet jumps at the opportunity to deliver a presentation or give a speech. She is socially selective but loves to network. She has zero tolerance for cliques, ass kissing, and phony people.
She is a creative and innovate leader who occasionally reads her poems at open mics. She volunteers her time to create platforms for Black people. She is committed to black empowerment, black pride, black excellence, and black progress.
August’s hobbies include traveling, patronizing and promoting Black businesses, and spending time with friends and family.
This is August Love’s first publication but certainly not her last.
