A Black History Month Contest (or Two)--Want Some Free Books?



We have some great prizes to give away courtesy of our friends at the Hachette Book Group.

How will we decide who get's our swag?

As a way to make this difficult choice, we will be holding a contest called "the James Brown Church" where you can confess the secrets and lies that you hold closest to your heart in order to maintain your Black authenticity.

And as an incentive for your sharing those deepest burdens and lies necessitated by the politics of Black authenticity, the best 2 confessionals will receive the following 8 books--

The American Journey of Barack Obama By The Editors of Life Magazine

Fledgling By Octavia Butler

Stand the Storm By Breena Clarke

Red River By Lalita Tademy

Keep the Faith: A Memoir By Faith Evans

Say You're One of Them By Uwem Akpan

The Shack By William Young

The Bishop's Daughter By Tiffany Warren

confession...

my love of mayonnaise knows no bounds.. i have 3 different types / flavours in my fridge right now..
i mix my hot pepper sauce with mayonnaise... its' a taste sensation..
i just love it..
it goes with everything.. even my mother's rice and peas..
if i am peckish and really do not know what to eat.. i will have a spoon of mayonnaise to tide me over til i know what i want...
aaah the creamy goodness.. am salivating while typing this now..

there... i am done....
