As an author your email signature is a fantastic place to distinguish yourself and stand-out from the crowd of emails that your recipients receive. In fact, it's an excellent way to unobtrusively market your book to all your email recipients. Let's do the math about the size of this marketing opportunity ... if you send an average of 10 emails a day you've got over 300 opportunities a month to tell your email recipients (clients, coworkers, friends, family and vendors) about your… Continue

They take my kindness for weakness.
They take my silence for speechlessness.
They consider my uniqueness strange.
They call my language slang.
They see my confidence as conceit.
They see my mistakes as defeat.

My advantage is somehow unfair.
Any praise is preferential treatment.
To voice my concern is… Continue

How Book Authors Can Negotiate A Book Royalty

"I hate being cold," Raine puffed, watching the cloud of smoke escape her mouth. She was damn near frozen, sitting on the iron bench at the deserted bus stop. "Where's the bus?" she thought, pushing up her charcoal gray wool sleeve to steal a quick glimpse at her wristwatch. Cold air seeped into her coat as she tugged on her multi-color fleece gloves. "Shit! Sane people are still in bed! But, no, not me! Rain, sleet or… Continue

Until the end, she was… Continue

Carla excused herself from the table when she saw Tiffany go to the ladies room. It was time for them to have a woman to girl chat. The guys stood up being the gentlemen that they are until she was gone. Lisa and Me’lay had a feeling that Carla was up to something so they followed shortly behind her. Carla addressed Tiffany as soon as she entered the restroom.
“That’s Miss Maxwell, Carla.” Turnabout was fair play. That’s the way she greeted Tiffany upon their first… Continue

“The Rise and Fall”
I’m the author of the phenomenal novel “Just a Season” titled from the religious knowledge referring to a period of time characterized by a particular circumstance, suitable to an indefinite period of time associated with a divine phenomenon called life. During this passage through time I have come to realize that there are milestones, mountains, and valleys that we must encounter. This speaks loudly to the challenges of a proud people - African… Continue
