New YouTube: S. Renee Bess at Women's Writing & Spoken Word Series

October 9, 2014 - Author S. Renee Bess features from her latest novel "The Rules" at the Women's Writing & Spoken Word Series at Big Blue Marble Bookstore in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia. Watch the video here:

S. Renée Bess is a Philadelphia bred former high school teacher, who has been writing fiction, in one form or another, for many years. Her short stores have been published in the "Labyrinth Newspaper", Piece of My Heart, A Lesbian of Colour Anthology, and Ma-Ka Diasporic Juks: Contemporary Writings by Queers of African Descent. She is thrilled to have had the opportunity to publish her novels. Renée is dedicated to the act of writing about African-American lesbians.
"It's important for us to tell our own stories because we need to affirm our right to exist in the world and in the body of lesbian and gay literature...many times we are not only invisible to the non-black gay and lesbian community. We are invisible to each other."

All books available for purchase in print and in e-book formats from:;;;; and booksellers nationwide.
