Folks is a genuine Christian novel. Theophilus
Henry Simmons is young, single, very handsome, and just about the finest
black man any wishful mother and daughter have ever seen in Charleston,
Mississippi. He's also a pastor. And when he starts courting the quiet,
homespun Essie Lee Lane-and she accepts his marriage proposal-a few of
the church folk decide to teach Essie what it really means to be a
pastor's wife, and show her how little she knows about them. But as
Theophilus gains prominence in his denomination, Essie evolves from a
mousy parishioner into an independent and Godly woman. Now sporting an
afro and driving her new purple Cadillac, Essie teaches the church folk
what it really means to stand by your man-and your beliefs. Book

On September 29, 2001, Black Women with Books (BWB) of Milwaukee, Wisconsin hosted a forum which featured four authors that are or were self-published at one time or another. The forum was an overwhelming success and one that other books clubs may wish to duplicate in the future. Sherry Taylor of BWB contacted several authors and invited them to participate by donating postcards, business cards and other forms of promotional items about their books, which were made available to forum attendees.
Thanks to BWB for their continued support of African American authors, and self-published authors in particular.

The Sistah Circle Book Club-Dallas Sistahs along with author Wanda Moorman will sponsor a program this holiday season called "Books for Christmas." Books collected will be individually wrapped and given to African American women in the Dallas/Ft. Worth and Washington, DC areas that reside in family/battered women shelters.
Best-selling author Brandon Massey has signed on to participate. We look forward to the participation of lots of authors in this worthwhile project.
The Dallas Sistahs have adopted local women shelters for this goodwill project. We are soliciting books from authors of both mainstream and self-publishing efforts. Books can range from self-help to mystery to Christian genres. Authors of children's books will have their books distributed to the children of the women. As an added gift to the receiver, we ask that authors personally sign their books: "Happy Holidays from [author's name]".
One of the goals of our club is to increase literacy among African American women. This program supports that goal. There are great authors that The Sistah Circle Book Club has met over the past three years and we solicit authors, publishers and publicists to help in making this a great success!
Books will be collected beginning October 1st through November 30th. Books will be distributed one week prior to the Christmas holiday (December 17th - 22nd). You may begin sending your books to:
The Sistah Circle Book Club
Up to ten copies of each book can be donated for this program. More books guarantee that each woman in the shelter will receive a book.
