The 2011 International Urban Book Festival, Cleveland comes to Richmond Town Square Mall, May 13 - 15, 2011. Throughout the mall will be local television, government and sports personalities reading for 30 minutes to a group of children or students. Authors will also sell and sign their books and novels and there will be several no cost literary workshops, classes and panel discussions open to the general public. We will identify 50 Cleveland area schools whose students may have financial challenges. Also, we will through our subsidiary R2Books, donate 20 gift certificates to each school, these can then be brought to our event and redeemed for a new book. We welcome other corporations to match our gift and help us give 10,000 books annually to deserving students across the United States. Tell everyone about us by sending them to our website: www.IUBFCleveland.info

For more information contact Takaya or Michael at 313.446.2262.

Good Day Authors,
 
Looking to sell more books? The Author Collective has just organized two new book festivals which are certain to help!  The 2011 Michigan Spring Book Festival happens April 15th through the 17th at Laurel Park Place Mall in Livonia, Michigan and The International Urban Book festival, Cleveland takes place May 13th through 15th at the Richmond Town Square Mall in Richmond Heights, Ohio. We have rented the entire mall for these festivals and expect to have lots of book lovers and book buyers in attendance.
 
There will be workshops, seminars, panel discussions, classes and lectures on many topics in the field of literature. These learning sessions will be free of charge to public and will provide insight on writing, publishing and marketing books. We will be sending invitations to patrons from the Detroit and Cleveland area school systems & libraries. R2Books and other sponsors will donate 1,000 book certificates to deserving students in each of the two cities. These certificates are good for one free book and must be redeemed at the festival. Many of the student with free book certificates and their parents, will look to purchase additional books and meet the authors in attendance.
 
Do you love selling at book festivals but hate the rain, cold and the wind that almost always happen during an outdoor event?  Join us for our indoor festivals which will span the entire common area of these shopping malls. Interact with the more than 10,000 shoppers who visit these malls everyday. Author applications are now available on our websites.  Click the links below or call me to reserve your table today!
 
Look to see you there.

Greetings Fellow Authors,

Join us November 5th thru 7th at the Northland Shopping Mall in Southfield, Michigan for the International Urban Book Festival, Detroit. A great place to sell books and teach young people the importance of reading. We have rented the entire shopping mall to get our message across to the young at risk generation. Reading is essential! Let's all encourage our youth to read at least two books per week. Let's encourage parents to make this a family mandate.

Meet and network with celebrity authors, purchasing agents from schools, libraries and major corporations plus other members of the literary community. We will hold literary workshops, panel discussions, lectures, seminars and classes on self publishing. We have 200 author tables now available, but they are certain to sell out quickly. The cost for the three day weekend is only $225. Author tables are 2' by 4' skirted with two chairs. Out of state attendees may receive discounts on hotel rooms by logging onto our website after September 2, 2010.

This is certain to be a fun filled event. Don't miss it.

Call us at (313) 446-2262 or log onto www.iubf.net Facebook

"Scarred Faith" -The Wounded Warrior"

This is the Story of a Christian Man whose heart and faith are in the fight to save souls. He has been wounded by the sin of temptation and lust that have overcome his life. The battle he now faces is how to regain his once strong faith and re-establish his relationship with God through Jesus Christ and his marriage to his wife.

He feels deactivated by the church he serves and slowly finds himself lost in his sins and how it has affected the ones he loves the most!


This is the journey of one man, but the story of many

Please review my press release. The powers, principalities and enemies of the Lord and His people are always constantly attacking but GOD holds their tongues, smites and confounds them mentally. My new sites are http://nolongerwillisuffer.ning.com and http://whatapennycandoingorja.ning.com both of these websites speak the truth unadulterated and uncut and I would love for you to purchase a copy of my book, 'SUFFERINGS; Letting go & Letting GOD' on sale now. I promise you, it will encourage you to strengthen your faith and work in it. Amen.Press_ReleaseSUFFERnew[1][1].jpg

How are you my brothers and sisters, I would like to present the opportunity for you to do something that might one day help out a family member, or even a friend. Your support would be greatly appreciated, and if you will, please pass this info. along to your friends, if not I still love you, and there's nothing you can do about it.

Most of you already know that I have written a book entitled; There's Something Phony About "US" the church which deals with us who say we're saved, but nothing about our lifestyle supports our claim. But what you may not know is that when you purchase my book, 10% of the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society(my grandfather died from prostate cancer), and also the American heart association(my grandmother died from a massive heart attack). There are two books to choose from. You can purchase the books for just $12, or $18 by clicking on the links below. Let's help put an end to these 2 diseases that's affecting all people alike. So, on behalf of Myself, the Kingdom of God, my grandmother, and my grandfather, thank you very much for your support! May God continue to bless each and everyone of you. Please click on the link below to purchase or preview my book. Love you to Life!!!!

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
