Diamond’s Literary World
Long Business Description:

Diane Rembert is an avid reader of over 30 years, reviewer, promoter, branding coach and founder of Diamond’s Literary World, a literary blog that highlights authors, promotes literary events and gives innovative reviews. In April 2016, she created Diamond’s World, a Blogtalk radio show that bridges the love of words, sentences and paragraphs to whomever has a like passion. She shares this footprint with all avid readers who wish to have a voice. Her motto is “Conquering Life One Book at a Time.”

The main focus of the blog and radio program has been to highlight African American authors (new and old), new book releases, literary events and all things book related. Hopefully, this will continue for generations to come.

BPM: In your opinion, what makes a good book conversation? 

Diane: In my opinion, a good book conversation consists of a few avid readers, a good book and a glass of wine. Many times the conversation will stray off topic, because one good book is often compared to another one or a movie. For the record, I very rarely use a reading guide, so I wouldn’t know if they were helpful or not. Books that address controversial issues generate the most interesting discussions.  Website: www.diamondsliteraryworld.com
