Check out our conversation with KR below.

What project are your currently excited about?
The launching of The Literary Evolution’s self-paced Author course. This automated course offers classes for each stage of an author’s journey, from novice to veteran. The courses cover everything from Self vs Traditional Publishing vs Vanity Press, ISBN explanations, to the importance of Copyright, Synopsis vs Back Cover Blurbs, Book Covers, What are eBooks, Editing, Press Kits/Social Media Marketing/Website, Legalities, Branding and much more.

Why did you create this project?
From my own trial and errors when I entered this business some 12, almost 13 years ago, my desire was never to see another author have to experience such painful lessons. Together with my partner, Author Elizabeth LaShaun, we set about creating The Literary Evolution and the TLE MasterClass brand. Now Authors will have a place to come to land when they’re looking for answers with easy to follow courses, complete with videos and handouts to take with them.

What are you hoping to accomplish with the project?
Our hope is to become a beacon, an Author Lighthouse if you will, for those seeking information and instruction. Its why we created the Master Classes, its why they are self-paced and automated. In this busy time and world, we live in, one needs to be able to move and process at their own pace. Our courses offer exactly that. You work as fast or as slow as needed to accomplish your ultimate goal; success.

How can one participate?
It’s super easy, just visit our site We have information on all current classes, as well as a list of coming soon. We are adding to our curriculum often, and we’re always open to suggestions. Sign up for the newsletter while you’re there. That way whenever something is added, you’re among the first to know.

Is there anything else associated with the project you want people to know about?
There is The Literary Evolution “live” event. Each year we get together and celebrate literature, authors, and everything involved. This year there won’t be an event due to COVID, but 2022, we will be back full steam ahead. June 24th & 25th, here in Atlanta. Our Special Guests will be Authors J.D. Mason, Delizihia Jenkins, K.F. Johnson. We will also be celebrating the heart and soul of why we do what we do, the readers; namely BOOK CLUBS! We will have special guests from various parts of the country whose book clubs will celebrate with us.
Registration opens in June 2021. You can get more information now by emailing us:
