Our Legacy is Rarely Found in 'His'tory . . .

. . . And when it is, it is tempered to make little of the actual happenings. Dark skins are rendered pale and discoveries are credited to the pupils. Even religions leave out the original worshipers. This has gone on for centuries and sometimes it seems almost impossible to ebb the flow of mis-education.

This will end as we recognize our power. We know what it's like to be that Stranger In A Strange Land first hand. We don't need exotic offlanders to tell that story. Our power is in writing our own stories, telling of our families, writing down our advice, creating our own myths, magical worlds and fantasies to be filmed and shown to the world.

Start now. You are an agent of literary change.

SAVE THE DATE:
The 5th Annual Leimert Park Village Book Fair in Los Angeles is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th, from 10am to 6pm.
As in our previous festivals, the Book Fair will attract a large number of visitors to the Leimert Park Village for an entertaining day of readings, poetry, and musical entertainment.  The centerpiece will be the Authors Tent where we will gather our community of authors to share and sell their works to the public.
This year, 40 table spaces will be allocated under the Authors Tent to provide an attractive venue for you and your works.  We would like to invite you to reserve your spot under the Authors Tent as soon as possible to guarantee your spot.  The cost will be $125 for a table space.  The deadline for submission is Monday, May 2nd.
An Authors application can be found at our website at http://www.leimertparkbookfair.com/.  Additional details about the space and the event are posted on the application.  More information will be posted on the website.  
Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the event or making a reservation, by sending me an email. 
We would appreciate your help in sharing information about the event with your peers and fans.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
