LOVE SENSATIONAL

It’s the rumbling in your tummy at the mere mention of a name.

It’s a spirit awakening,

More like a soul quaking feeling you are scared to claim.



And although it can be as intimately blissful as heaven up above

It’s not a place for the naïve …and it takes far more than for you to just believe

So please…Do Not Sensationalize Love!



When it’s REAL, it’s that DEAL...almost too terrific to trust,

What it can’t be is based solely upon passionately… Continue

WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT? SAVE OUR BLACK COLLEGES PLEASE!

What's Up Brothas & Sistahs!



I saw something on the news this weekend that blew my mind and I just had to share! Have you heard about the trouble Fisk University is having? One of "our" institutions is in the red and stands to lose accredidations and just like with Morris Brown, FAMU, and my almer mater, Central State the media seems to be hell bent on promoting only the negative. This is one of the main reasons that I wrote The Black College Sabbatical - FALL… Continue

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

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
