I was first introduced to the work of Karen Taylor Bass indirectly from the exceptional job she did with promoting one of my favorite multifaceted artists Ms. Jill Scott at the offset of her career and throughout.
I was directly introduced to her after listening to a blogtalkradio podcast interview between her and Pam Perry where she was the featured guest.  At the time she was promoting this book and I was so impressed by what I heard, I ordered the book, did further research on her and began following Karen on Social Media.
