When Rawsistaz decided to hold the E Book Reading Challenge and book chats, I cringed. Although Rawsistaz has earned the respect of the the publishing community and provided honest, informative free reviews for African American authors, I couldn't envision a free download of my book. Why?
There are enough free e-books on the net.
Furthermore, unless the work is charity, no one works for free. And anyone who does work for free has an empty plate. At the same time, I realize during tough economic times, some people want to purchase but don't have the ends or resources to get the book. Finally, the purpose of the E Book Reading Challenge is to promote AA e-books and usher in the new wave of publishing.
For everyone who couldn't purchase from a local store, download Blackface on your computer or mobile device. Book reviewers, readers and anyone who would like to read can download for seven days.
To download, register for free @ E Book Reading Challenge . I hope to talk to you next month and chat about images and characters in Blackface at www.rawsistaz.com. If not, catch me at a bookstore, in the street or grab a book from my website.
Note: There are several other authors participating in the e-book reading challenge, get their books too. It's free!
