I'm sorry to announce that TBIB (That Bookstore In Blytheville) is no longer open. Unfortunately, proprietor Chris Crawley took ill with complications from cancer treatments and had to shutter the doors. It is unclear when or who will reopen the bookstore at this time....

Amazing list:  They are all chances to deal in legal Black-Money!

Thank you for this list. I saw something similar on another site but most of the stores are closed. Hopefully, after my book is published I will be able to work with some of these stores, especially the ones in the DMV

Dope I usually got to Pyramid Books that's in my area South Florida 

Wow

We have come so far by faith

Posted by Ms. Regina Owens on February 20, 2018 at 6:24pm 0 Comments

Let us not forget those who have gone before us, who have fought the good fight with faith, and courage. Black History Month is due in remembrance of them all, and us today must not allow those torches of courage to ever go out. Kudos to the Black Panther movie, now a superhero movie for us--not one of a "pale like," one that bolts out of a phone booth wearing a flying like red and blue cape. Blessings to you all!

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.
