Celebrating Black History Month

cj Sez: Please join me in celebrating Black History Month.

    “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

   Marguerite Annie Johnson is better known as the respected American poet Maya Angelou. (1928-2014). A remarkable woman, Ms. Angelou was a memoirist, writer, and poet. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry in a career spanning more than 50 years.


Yosemite’s Buffalo Soldiers . . .

   If you’re on Facebook, this is a marvelous and delightful presentation by an enthusiastic U.S. National Park Service Ranger/historian Shelton Johnson:    16+ minutes

   If you’re not on Facebook, here are two other versions. In the latter one, Ranger Johnson is acting the part of a real Buffalo Soldier who was assigned duties at Yosemite National Park.


Have I got a deal for you!  A couple of TIMELY ANTHOLOGIES to fill the shelter at home hours. AVAILABLE NOW . . . 


  In MARDI GRAS PIECES, Mobile Writers Guild members share their stories—some true and some fictional, some funny, some touching, and some downright chilling. 

  The street festivities are on hold, the floats are not parading, but no problem.  Don your beads, deck yourself out in purple, gold, and green, grab a Moon Pie, and relax with some great stories while you experience a little bit of the Mobile Mardi Gras tradition.     BUY NOW


   In VALENTINE’S DAY PIECES, the third installment of the Mobile Writers Guild anthology series, members celebrate the traditional romantic aspect of Valentine’s Day with sweet and funny stories of hearts, flowers, and kisses.

   But they also explore the darkness that surrounds the day with a few tales of intrigue, madness, and murder.  BUY IT NOW 


cj Sez: That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. 

P.S.  My stand-alone novels (suspense with a touch of romance) are out of print on Amazon, but The Haunted Bookshop has signed copies in stock. The store has re-opened to limited hours, so if you’re in the Mobile area, you can stop and shop, too.

   TO ORDER my autographed books or any book of your choice on-line from a favorite, indie bookstore, contact The Haunted Bookshop here:
