THE BLUEPRINT

SOMETHING NEW (motion picture) + fat Black girl magic.

Savvy is dumped for her work ethic and her weight, spurring plans for a revenge body to make her ex regret his poor decision. Nothing can prepare her for a whirlwind romance with the contractor hired to renovate her kitchen, as she realizes her ex's regrets are none of her concern. Savvy regains her confidence, owning her own curves, and lets go of her ex for good.

Long Bio: Oakland native and law grad, Taj McCoy, is committed to writing stories championing Black and biracial women of color, plus-sized protagonists, Black love, and characters with a strong sense of sisterhood and familial bonds. Taj started writing as a small child, enjoying the success of her first publications in elementary school. Since then, her dream has always been to become a professional writer.

When she’s not writing, Taj may be on Twitter boosting other marginalized writers, trying to zen out in yoga, sharing recipes on her website, binge-watching her favorite reality tv, or cooking private supper club meals for close friends. Catch her producing and co-hosting the Fat Like Me Podcast, which celebrates body diversity in publishing and entertainment, or watch her join forces with several writer friends on Sundays for the Better Than Brunch video podcast.
