Black Lives Matter and Juneteenth
Unless we as a country speak up, take responsibility for our past, acknowledge the present culture of injustice, and make a commitment to change, the list of Black lives lost to police brutality will never end.
Black Healthcare Matters. Black Education Matters. Black Housing Matters. Black Voices Matter. And Black Lives absolutely Matter. Together we must support the Black community and speak out against the violence and racism.
On June 19, I will honor Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, by offering free group consulting from 10am PT - 12pm PT to any Black author needing book marketing/publicity or book publishing advice. Consider these office hours and bring your questions. Spread the word.
Please register so I can send you the Zoom link (your information will not be used for any other purpose, we just want to make sure we don’t get Zoom bombed).
Through my companies, FSB Associates and Pub Site, we are offering free websites to five emerging Black authors with one or two books. My team will build the websites on Pub Site for free and host them for free for a year. We are collecting names and on June 19th, I will announce the raffle winners. Enter for a chance to win and stay tuned for the results. Please help me spread the word.
I will also continue to donate, support, and listen, and I encourage you to do the same. Here are some ways that you can help.
