I’m still here, gimme a hot min

So yeah, I’m on lock-down like the rest of you.

But that  does not mean you get shitty poetry/whinny posts from me.

I’m cooking up some nice, spicy words that can spin possibilities.

Dreams of what’s life like post self-distance.

So much I write about is about intimacy.

What can I do to bring you into my space, spiritually?

Stay tuned.

Stay safe and healthy.

My Book is Now Available in Softcover for half the price!!!

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:

ESSAY: THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC – WordUp – kalamu’s words

ESSAY: THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC – WordUp – kalamu’s words.

Can we, as Tricky once rapped, “manage” or “create our own” with the Master’s language?
