Good news, friends, family, and followers:

How Three Black Women Combined Spiritual and Sensual Love, by Cherie Ann Turpin, Ph.D

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 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:

Remembering and Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Aaronette M. White

Remembering and Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Aaronette M. White.

This essay does more than eulogize Dr. White–it provides readers with a clear understanding and context with regard to the significance of her work. ¬†It also serves as a sad reminder to all of us of the reality of our existence as being temporary, despite the importance of the work we produce for the collective, however compelling. ¬†May she rest in peace and join the Ancestors in Paradise as they watch over us the living.
