A MESSAGE FROM PUBLISHER JESSICA TILLES
I hope this email finds you all doing well. If I could have a quick moment of your time, I have a HUGE favor to ask of you.
Last year, Xpress Yourself Publishing was nominated for and won the 2008 African American Literary Award for Independent Publisher of the Year and we've been nominated AGAIN this year. I have to admit, we REALLY want to win again this year! We, along with our wonderful, talented authors, have worked very hard this year. Currently, we have over 60 titles in print and an author roster of 30 that's growing rapidly.
Just like last year, in order to win, we are asking you to cast your vote for Xpress Yourself Publishing and its authors. Last year, the turnout to vote for us was phenomenal!
So, I'm asking you to PLEASE, PLEASE, pretty PLEASE, with sugar on top, go to http://www.literaryawardshow.com/voting.html and cast your vote for the following:
Xpress Yourself Publishing
Victoria Wells, author of When Love Comes Around (and A Special Summer)
Somebody Prayed For Me by Linda Herman, Allyson Deese and Tinisha Nicole Johnson
Author of the Year (Female)
Linda Herman, author of Consequences
As an author, it is a wonderful feeling to have your body of work recognized and nominated for an award. It truly makes the long nights writing and the struggles with re-writing all worth it! We are so very excited, and we congratulate all nominated artists, authors and publishers.
Thanks so much for your continued support of Xpress Yourself Publishing, and we look forward to showcasing our 2010 releases, and bring you some of the best in the world literature!
