Thank you to our partners at HarperCollins for their support of today’s episode!
We are all about supporting women on this podcast, and so are the publishers at HarperCollins. They invest in authors who are writing stories about women, for women, and by women. The novel Black Girls Must Die Exhausted is a rare find in the world of women’s fiction. The book’s story is centered around a successful young Black woman who seems to have it all; a great dating life, a beautiful home, and a great job. However, an unexpected fertility crisis puts the protagonist in a tailspin.
