Summer Time is the “Funner” Time!

Today jumpstarts a new summer season! Barbecues! Beaches! Blockbuster movies! Bikinis! Boogie Boards!

And if that’s not enough B-words for you, how about BOOKS! Hustlin’ books, that is! Summer is the perfect time to slang books! So many long, lazy days to come. How often do you see people and their oiled-up, sun-burned bodies lazing on the beach with a book in hand? I definitely want one of those books to be mine.

To do that, we gotta hit the season hard.
So you know J-Willy has a few events lined up, mostly in Californ-i-a (hey, traveling across the country ain’t cheap!). After launching A HARD MAN IS GOOD TO FIND at the National Black Book Festival–where I also accepted my Best New Author Award (what, whaaaaat!)–TPC held a book signing at the Juneteenth Festival in Santa Cruz. Next up:

Leimert Park Book Fair – 6/25
Foster City July 4th Festival – 7/4
NAACP Author Pavilion – 7/24
L.A. Black Book Expo – 8/20

But that’s not all I have cooking in the Hustla Grill, folks. I’m starting a J-Lew Online Bookstore, where I’ll be offering short-shorts–what I call “cocktales”–for only 99-cents as ebooks only. My first tale The Two-Minute Drill amplifies the whole meaning of the word “short” (hint, hint). 😉 Next up on the plate:

– Mr. Telephone Man, Who The &!@* Is On My Girl’s Line? June 2011
– 25 Tips to Improve Your Writing and Chances of Publication July 2011
– I Don’t Have Time For Crunches! July 2011
And more!

The TPC3 will also be focusing on opening up an Author Services division, hustling our other book “When Love Isn’t Enough” by Stephanie Casher and preparing Omar’s book “One Blood” for launch.  Does it eva stop?

Yeah, I like where everything is going, if I do say so myself. Looks like my summer will be off the chain, off the hinges, off the heezy–whatever–so I’m bracing myself for the whirlwind.

Hey, you wanna ride with me?  🙂
