No Alternatives? No Boycotts.

I’m not trying to be mean or knock anyone’s cause, but do NOT tell me to BOYCOTT a store I may NEED to shop at without offering me any ALTERNATIVES. #NoAlternativesNoBoycotts For example, if I’m a single parent with no car and Target is walking distance, do I not buy diapers or milk today because “WE” are boycotting Target? Will there be community buses or Ubers available to get me to a mom-n-pop shop? And, more importantly, when I get there, will I be able to afford to shop in…

The world is buzzing about comments made by Don Sterling during his CNN interview with Anderson Cooper. People of color, especially black folks, seem to be mad simply because the words came from the mouth of someone being accused of bigotry.

Yes, it does hurt to have to admit that this NBA legend is actually hurting urban communities. And, I myself am hurt because he was on such a positive roll…

The New KDP Sales Reports Dashboards

Have you checked out the new reports interface on Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)? I simply love it! I used to dread checking my previous month’s stats and royalties, especially in public places, because you had to download them. And, to top it off, you had to download an Excel spreadsheet.

We Promise Not to Riot Over Any Trayvon Martin Verdict

Watching Dr. Drew HLN. Trying to understand why the topic of “rioting” is so hot today. I believe that there should be justice for Trayvon Martin. HOWEVER, the idea that “the blacks” in America riot and loot every time a black person doesn’t get justice in a high profile case, is preposterous. Personally, I can only speak for Cali. The Watts Riots went down in August 1965, almost 48 years ago. The Los Angeles Riots went down in April 1992. That was over 21 years ago. I’m way past offended…
