I want to introduce the development of my ‘new legal-drama-meets-Christian Fiction’ project to this influential group of literary experts and thought leaders in order to start a conversation.
(PRWEB) July 29, 2013
San Francisco Bay Area author, social entrepreneur and real life "Fixer" Dr. Raye Mitchell arrives in Atlanta on August 2nd to attend the 11th annual National Book Club Conference (NBCC), which is taking place August 2-4, 2013 at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Conference Center. The groundbreaking writer will join dynamic colleagues attending the conference to discuss her non-fiction book on innovation and change, "The Laws of the New Game Changers: How to Make Breakthroughs That Take You Forward." During the conference, Dr. Mitchell will excitedly introduce to Atlanta audiences her new fictional book series now in development, "The Harvard Litigator: The Fixer for the Little Guy."
"The Harvard Litigator" book series is a riveting fictional collection inspired by true facts and Mitchell’s real life experiences as a litigation attorney working to help improve the quality of life for hard working Americans and to generate future opportunities for them. The main character, Zola Penelope Roberson (ZPR) is based on Raye Mitchell’s life as a Harvard Law School trained attorney who leaves the legal profession to dedicate her time to helping and mentoring women and girls. One of the series' narratives, "The Pawn," is a ripped-from-the-headlines-page-turner, inspired by the true case history of the sensational January 2013 jewelry store robbery of Jason's of Beverly Hills that was featured on TMZ. Mitchell’s exclusive insider’s details go far beyond, and disclose layers much deeper than those revealed in the news. Visit the website http://www.theharvardlitigator.com to stay informed.
“The NBCC is a very most important book club conference for authors and publishers of color, and I want to introduce the development of my ‘new legal drama meets Christian fiction’ project to this influential group of literary experts and thought leaders to start a conversation,” said Mitchell. “I am also excited to participate at the conference because “Scandal” co-executive producer Judy Smith, the real-life ‘fixer’ who inspired the blockbuster television series, will be honored there. I have high respect for Judy’s work and contributions as a real life crisis management expert and author. And, I must confess that I never miss an episode of "Scandal."
Because all proceeds from Mitchell’s books and projects support The New Reality Foundation and The G.U.R.L.S. Rock Global Leadership Program, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt foundation supporting mentoring and leadership training for girls, Mitchell will host a “Fixer” party at the NBCC to raise awareness and support the innovative programs designed to help "fix" many of the challenges that girls face as obstacles to their success. The fixer party will take place at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Conference Center in the Chastain Ballroom on Friday, August 2, 2013, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Admission to Mitchell's "Fixer" Party is free, but registration is required at the website: http://rayemitchellfixerparty.eventbrite.com. The reception will help raise awareness of the need to support and mentor girls of color to become global leaders. “We need to fix the things that are blocking our girls from achieving greatness” Said Mitchell and so “guests who make a donation of $15.00 will receive a “Fixer Goodie Bag” valued at over $35.00 that includes a t-shirt, coffee mug, posters, stickers and more.” Registered guests who make a donation of at least $100.00 will have a chance to win a fabulous pair of Christian Louboutin designer shoes, valued at over $750.00.”
Curtis Bunn, NBCC founder and president, his committee and all the noted authors have been invited to the “Fixer Party," including "New York Times" bestselling authors Eric Jerome Dickey, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Pearl Cleage, Terrie Williams, Carl Weber, Alice Randall, ReShonda Tate Bilingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray; Andre Carter of the reality show "Braxton Family Values;" author Karen E.
