This has been a great week for me and words. It started off with the announcement I will be moderating the DC Black Pride Writers Forum. It will be held Saturday, May 28 • 1–2:30 p.m. • Hyatt Regency Washington.

DCBlack Pride


I’m super excited because I participated as a writer for three past forums starting in 2012, a few months after my first book SBF Seeking arrived. I made so many contacts and learned so much from my fellow writers on the stage. To go from being one of the writers answering questions to the one asking the questions filled my heart.

Then The Advocate published its story on Black Pride. As organizer of Shades of Pride, I am quoted about my thoughts about Pride. I’m also featured in two of the pictures spotlighting Prides across the globe. Ah, to be that young again.


The week ended with the fourth installment of my column Hot Tea and Ice on Wyatt O’Brien Evans website



This month I am writing about relationships, so check it out.

Sometimes I feel tapped out, that words are just too much to manage. Then weeks like this happens and I remember. I love the craft of shaping words and sharing with the world. Looking forward to May bringing me more opportunities.

23. January 2012 · Comments Off on The World of La Toya Hankins · Categories: Uncategorized

Late night visits to adult bookstores. Coming out shows on college campuses. Climbing the corporate ladders while never forgetting your roots. The love and support of sister/lovers/friends.

La Toya Hankins seeks to capture the lives of the new Southern women in her novels, SBF Seeking… and K-Rho: The Sweet Taste of Sisterhood. Dedicated to capturing the experiences of women’ voices often left unheard in contemporary fiction, Hankins takes the reader to the cities and towns of her native North Carolina and showcases the experiences of living for one self instead of up to the expectations of others.

Kiara, Donna, Yvette, Yolanda, Danita and Gloria are more than just characters. They are the sisters, sorors, daughters, and friends we all have in our lives.

Have you found what you are looking for and do you have a sisterhood that supersede sexuality? Come visit the word of Toya and find yourself among the pages.
