THE STORY:

I am excited to announce that I'm releasing my third book, To Black Parents Visiting Earth: A Guide to Raising Black Children in the 21st Century, this December 2017.    To Black Parents Visiting Earth is a series of love letters written to parents raising African American children in today's racial climate.   I began writing these letters as a parenting blog series in February 2015 on Brokenshackle.net.  Since then, the Letters have been published in Mutha Magazine and The Huffington Post.  To Black Parents Visiting Earth addresses a full range of topics, including representation, books, hair, dolls, and post-election fear, as well as new, unreleased essays on imagination, multiracial identity, self-care, affection and more.

In the next 45 days, I hope to raise $10,000, but I need your help!!

Your generous donation will allow me to successfully publish and promote the paperback and audiobook versions of To Black Parents Visiting Earth.  

For minimum donations listed below, you will receive the following:

$10:  Broken Shackle Publishing quarterly e-newsletter

$25:  All of the above plus free copy of book

$100:  All of the above plus free To Black Parents Visiting Earth T-shirt and Silver Time Bender recognition in book 

$500:  All of the above plus Gold Time Bender recognition in book 

$1000:  All of the above plus Platinum Time Bender recognition in book

Every gift helps and is greatly appreciated! As an independent publisher, Silver, Gold, and Platinum Time Benders will be instrumental in allowing To Black Parents Visiting Earth reach a wider audience, nationwide and worldwide, through promotion at conferences and book fairs.

Help spread the message that it's important to instill love in our children so they may grow resilient, confident, and proud, bringing prosperity for all generations to come.
