For The Holidays! Buy My Book For Your Loved One!

Here’s an idea for Holiday shopping–give your loved one a copy of my book! Edwin Mellen Press, the publisher of my book How Three Black Women Writers Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love: Rhetorically Transcending the Boundaries of Love is now offering my book in soft-cover for half the price: $43.29 USD. It’s a heck of a bargain considering the fact that the hardcover is $119 USD. So how do you get it? Well, until Mellen Press starts offering it online at Amazon or on their site, you have to call and ask, though I’m betting if enough people ask, they’ll relent and get on board with market demand much faster. Meanwhile, here’s the contact name and phone number:
Dr. Cherie Ann Turpin

Be sure to let her know you found out the good news about getting my book soft-cover from me, Dr. Cherie Ann Turpin.
