Harlem Book Fair 2007

Check out the photos from the fair under the Photo tab. It was a beautiful day with so much happening on either side of Lenox Avenue (Malcolm X Blvd). The sunshine obscured some faces (we will fix that in Photoshop soon), but we just had to get these shots up so you can see the thriving publishing mecca.

The face of publishing is changing . . .

and it looks like you!

Writing With a Purpose

I am delighted to share my passion for writing!



Candace Chantel Battiste is my eight year old granddaughter, born with a rare

skin condition known as Giant Congenital Nevus. When she

was born, no one in the delivery room knew what was on her face. She

also had large black hairy spots on other parts of her tiny newborn

body. The nurses whisked her away and put her in a special care

nursery! My daughter, 17 at the…

Search for the Treasure! Be determined to know God's will

Many times there are circumstances and trials that come along in our

life and even our walk with God that cause us to feel discouraged

and/or confused. If we are not careful, we will spend much of our time

Heavenly Father who has the solution. Instead of wasting our time

panicking and reaching to anything and anyone else to be the solution,

we have to take the time to seek God and His Word for… Continue

MELANCHOLY

Most times she looks the way that I want to feel.

You know that happiness, you fear is not real.

Don't want wake up from this dream to see life spliting at (it seems)(it's seams),

she would lose it, if she misses one pill.



How do I describe the sparkle in her, I.

I say, "Did you see the purple clouds at sunrise?"

You know it just might rain, you know life comes with pain,

she knows the chance is there but this day she won't cry.



She's got a… Continue

Al Hartman felt a cold chill run up along his back as he got out of his car. The young black male zippered up his black jacket all the way to the top until it covered the thin white dress shirt that he was wearing. He even felt a cold breeze blowing up the legs of his black pants. It was a… Continue

Never Say Never















































We should incorporate the practice of never saying “never,” into our set of unchanging ways. My experience has

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
