RENITA McKinney: Let’s Include Everyone

Workshop Details: Being sensitive to ethnic, cultural and societal issues in your prose is very important. Sometimes, even though it’s not intended, you can cross a line that might offend certain members of your reader base. A Book A Day Author Services is very aware of these issues and has the cultural and philosophical background to help you navigate these touchy waters.

This workshop includes honest talk, structural guidelines and answers to any questions about including everyone in your manuscript.

BIO: Renita McKinney was born in Texas, but raised in Arkansas and Texas. As an only child, she started reading around the age of 2 and books became her best friends. The characters became her family, and she developed a love and respect for writing, reading, books, and authors. Reading developed into more than a hobby to Renita; it’s a passion, an unquenchable thirst. Not being able to read would seemingly be a slow and torturous death. 

She has been fortunate to live and travel all over this world due to being the former wife of a military man. So often she would visit foreign countries that would not seem so foreign at all, because she had already traveled there within the confines of a book.

Her passion for books, desire for writing and love for words have afforded her the opportunity to work with many New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and Amazon bestselling authors.

Renita found her niche in sensitivity editing. Where she works with authors to step outside of their comfort zone and write stories with all types of diverse characters

“It’s exciting to be on the inside of a story as it comes together and even more amazing that my opinion and input is requested by these phenomenal storytellers.”

Renita now lives in San Antonio, Texas, is the mother of three amazing adults: Holly, Lamontre, and Brandon, and two beautiful grandchildren, Ashanti and A’Zari.

She is the owner of A Book A Day Author Services, tries to read at least 300 books a year, and loves to hang out with her small circle of friends that have become family.
