Jackie O & Co LLC is so excited to share our client, Ms. Erica Dixon's book signing for her new children's book, Introducing Southern Bell, on March 26th 2pm-5pm at CamiCake's Camp Creek Location, 3560 Camp Creek Pkwy, East Point, GA 30344. Written by Erica Dixon, co-written by Dr. Kisha Walker with illustrations by Candice Kilgore, Introducing Southern Bell is the first in a series of children's book released from her Southern Bell Book Series. While it's written for children, it's not the typical fairy tale story; the book gives readers of all ages a peek into her childhood and helps young children deal with real life issues. Bell is the voice of so many children caught up in the system, living with parents addicted to drugs and alcohol, fearful that kids will tease or bully them about their clothes, wondering where their next meal will come from, where they’ll live, or even if they’ll live to see tomorrow,” shares Erica. “When I was little, the books I read were mostly about fairy tales, but my own life was no happily ever after. We all have a story and I’m inviting you to learn about my childhood through Bell.”

The first book in the Southern Bell Series, Introducing Southern Bell, follows 7-year-old Bell on a typical day at school and opens with Bell sitting on a window ledge watching children play while their mothers sit by.  Bell often wondered why her mother never played with her or her brother or did the things other mothers did.  Instead her brother Deonte did everything for Bell from cooking, washing her clothes, combing her hair, taking her to school, and signing school notes, since their mom was always either ‘sick’ or just not around. By the time you’re finished reading, you’ll be wondering what happens to Bell next.  Is her brother going to be able to take care of her? What’s happening with her mother? Characters names and locations have been altered throughout the book series to protect the identity of people which Bell interacts with and/or encounters.  

In her short years on, VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, Erica Dixon, has evolved from mom and reality star to author and businesswoman.  Erica’s Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta storyline is fairly well-known and her journey to the small screen is actually the “real” in reality! Born from humble beginnings in Atlanta, Georgia, the youngest girl of nine siblings, Erica (like Bell) didn’t have a stable childhood. “As revealed on the show, my mother was addicted to drugs, so I didn’t have the typical childhood. It wasn’t until I was relocated to family in Hempstead, NY (at the age of 6) that I got a glimpse of what some would consider a normal childhood.” At the age of 13, Erica was returned to her mother in Atlanta. Not much had changed, so she found herself moving yet again, but this time to live with her father. Under the care of her father, Erica graduated from Forest Park High School and enrolled in Atlanta Professional Institute. It’s during this time that she met the father of her beautiful daughter, Emani. The birth of Emani shifted her priorities and she became more focused on advancing her career. Erica graduated with a certification in medical coding and bill transcription, but deep inside she held onto a childhood dream of becoming a model and designer. Destiny manifested into reality when an opportunity emerged for Erica to join the cast of VH-1 Reality television series,  "Love And Hip-Hop Atlanta."  In addition to the book series, she’s launched Klass6, an exclusive hair/fashion/beauty collection designed exclusively for women. Today Erica and her mother are rebuilding their relationship and using their voices and the Southern Bell book series to help other kids and families heal.  The next book in the series is Southern Bell In The Big City
