Juneteenth Sale!

It's June and you know what that means? It's hotter than hades outside. It also means Juneteenth is right around a corner. And THAT means it's almost time for the Juneteenth sale I'm a part of it.Why Juneteenth?The simple fact is there was a time in America's history where folks would get fined, punished or thrown in jail for teaching people of color to read. More specifically, teaching slaves to read. The general fear was if you taught slaves how to write they might, you know, think about their lot in life. They may not be happy about it. They just might educate themselves. And then the nightmare would begin: they might educate others.What I do every day as a passion, for a living was illegal in the United States. Took some time for the word to get out that slavery had been abolished and that was just one step closer to where I'm sitting now. I don't know about you, but I think that's cause for a celebration. It's worthy of taking a moment.Why a group sale?Who doesn't love a sale?When?June 13th-19thWho?The following authors are dropping their prices for this one time event. $1.79 to $0.99Bad Boy Next Door by Melissa BlueWebsite$2.99 to $0.99Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever by LV LewisWebsite$3.99 to $1.99A Kiss of a Different Color by Bettye GriffinWebsite$2.99 to $1.49Framing Felipe Holley TrentWebsite$2.99 to $0.99Donor by Ambrielle KirkWebsite$3.99 to $0.99Jaded Hearts by Olivia LindenWebsite$3.90 to $2.50Abandoned But Not Alone by Theresa HenryFacebook Page$3.99 to $2.99Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing by Chicki BrownWebsite$2.99 to $1.99D.N.A. -Nothing Would Ever be the Same AgainWebsiteIf you want to find out more about these authors and their books you can check out their website.
