As an author, one of the most important aspects of my book series are the covers. The cover is the first thing potential readers see and it can have a huge impact on whether or not they decide to purchase and read my book. Over time, the style and preferences of readers may change, which means that updating the book series covers could be a great way to breathe new life into my books and attract new readers.

Celebrating Black Business Month
Black Business Month is an annual campaign held in August to celebrate the achievements and contributions of African-American business owners. BBM was founded in 2004 by the National Black Chamber of Commerce to support black business growth and development. The organization sponsors local, regional, national, and international events that provide networking and entrepreneurship education opportunities.
The National Black Chamber of Commerce works with other minority chambers of commerce and community leaders to promote a common goal: “to encourage Blacks to become owners rather than employees.” While many businesses close after one generation or fail to transfer from one family member or friend to another without fail, BBM encourages those who make it through the difficult years with their business intact. To share what they’ve learned with younger entrepreneurs. Read down the post to learn about different ways through which you can support black businesses.
Pet Hydration Awareness
Did you know that July is National Pet Hydration Awareness Month? This is the perfect time to review our pet’s hydration habits and ensure we do everything we can to keep them healthy. It’s also an excellent opportunity to consider how our pets’ diets affect their hydration. Dogs and cats require daily water intake, just like we do. You must schedule regular visits with your veterinarian, who will check your pet’s teeth and gums for any signs of dental disease. A vet can also help identify any existing health problems that might be causing a decrease in thirst. This post will help us learn some of the benefits of water to our pets.
Why Is Pride Month Important
From hiding in the shadows and honing the fear of coming out to loved ones, we live in the day when the LGBTQ+ community has now been recognized and somewhat accepted. This is not to say that there are no challenges, but the community has come a long way, and Pride month is proof of that. So, what is Pride month?
Pride Month is one whole month in the year dedicated to the celebration and support of LGBTQ+ culture, rights, and voices. Pride Month happens throughout June every year. June is both a celebration month and an activism month for the community.
Pride month is to celebrate the members of the LGBTQ+ community who lost their lives in the fight for freedom. To celebrate all that the community has achieved and fight for more freedom and recognition of our rights.
Across the country, the LGBTQ+ community rises up in pride and flies the rainbow flag. There are rallies, parties, memorials, drag performances, pride parades, and more in honor of the community and its members.
Why is Pride Month Important?
The month of June is very significant for the LGBTQ+ community because it was on the 28th of June 1969 that the gay community fought back for the first time. They refused the hate; they refused to bend their backs anymore and hide from who they were; they snapped, and it made all the difference decades later! This led to the famous Stonewall riot written in the sands of history. The Stonewall riot lasted for days with protests and marches all over the city, marking the beginning of freedom and the Gay liberation movement.
Pride month is important because it shows the community how far they have come. During this month, many can shamelessly flaunt their identities, come out of the closet and embrace who they truly are. Pride month is also about educating the ignorant, teaching people about tolerance and the history of pride.
During Pride month, members of the community flaunt a very colorful flag with a solid representation. Every color of the Pride flag has a significant meaning that every community member draws strength from. Hot pink for sex, orange for healing, green for nature, violet for spirit, indigo for harmony, and black and brown for inclusivity.
The entire community across the globe has risen from rejection, hate, intolerance, and inequality. This month brings the opportunity to show people the light while we enjoy the successes. Equality for all and unconditional love can only be possible if the community still suffers the effect of modern-day homophobia.
Pride month is a time for breaking out of preset societal molds and defining who we are. It’s genuinely bigger than the parades with the flag or the events; it’s an appreciation of the uniqueness of every individual’s identity.
Pride month is an ode to the community’s resilience, healing, hope, unique identities, and togetherness through trials. Pride month is a liberating season for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and it should be celebrated.
Feel free to fly your pride flag anywhere and anytime. If you’re looking to support the community, there are so many charities that you can give to.
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is a public holiday mainly celebrated in parts of Mexico and the United States to commemorate a military victory over Napoleon III’s army in 1862. The day is celebrated on May 5th every year. The day is also historically known as Battle of Puebla Day.
While the holiday is primarily celebrated in some regional places, the day has evolved into cultural heritage. Therefore, the importance of this day bears a lot of meaning to the Mexican-American people in the United States.
Meaning of the Day
Many people believe Cinco de Mayo to be the Mexican Independence Day. It is a popular misnomer that is lost on many people. It is important to note that Cinco De Mayo celebrates a battle from the history page in 1861. That year, Mexico had just elected a new president, Benito Juárez, an indigenous community member.
The new president had to oversee his country through an extremely tough period. Mexico was going through economic devastation after years of civil war. The financial crisis turned so bad that the new president had to default on debt payments to all the European governments.
Consequently, Britain, France, and Spain sent forces to Mexico in a bid to reclaim what Mexico owed them. Afterward, Britain and Spain struck a deal with Mexico and withdrew their armed forces from the country. However, Napoleon III of France decided to exploit this as an opportunity to expand his territory.
An Excerpt from The Billionaire and the Biker Chick
Chapter 6: Furious Familiarity
“What can I get for you?” she asked.
Reece let his gaze sweep over her again, and goose bumps spread over her skin everywhere his gaze landed.
“Are you on the menu?”
Crissie refrained from laughing. She just winked and grabbed a shocking pink highball glass. Crissie quickly assembled the drink in the cocktail shaker, adding in the vodka, peach schnapps, and orange juice.
Reece kept his eyes locked on her as she vigorously shook the cocktail shaker, poured the drink into the glass, and topped it off with cranberry juice. Crissie placed a cherry on top of the drink and slid it over to Reece.
He stared at her, puzzled as the glass stood between them. Crissie leaned forward and gave him a good view of her cleavage as she reached over and took the cherry by the stem, making sure to not touch the liquid contents of the drink.
Crissie popped it, placed it in her mouth, and took a few seconds to tie the cherry stem with her tongue. Reece watched her intently as she took the tied stem out of her mouth and placed it in between them on the counter.
“I am. I come with Sex on the Beach.”
With that, Crissie walked to the end of the counter and started serving the customers there. Reece flicked his eyes between her and the tied cherry stem. Reece was completely dumbstruck at the short conversation the two had just had. Never in his 28 years on Earth had he experienced such a fiery woman.
Reece slowly took a sip of the vibrant cocktail and was pleasantly surprised by the taste. He’d always been more of a Bourbon on the rocks type of guy. Reece keeps his eyes pinned on her as she serves the other clients in the bar. For a moment, he was so entranced by the beauty of her that he completely forgot why he actually came to the bar in the first place.
Crissie wrapped up a conversation with one of the regulars, handing him his old-fashioned, and walked back to Reece, who is now quietly watching her as he drank from the shocking pink highball glass. The view was very comedic. There was a silence between them, both of them just focusing on each other. Nobody could deny the apparent tension and attraction that hung in the air.
“Do I know you? I feel like we’ve met before,” Reece suddenly asked.
Crissie blinked a few times. Her past was a bit checkered, and she hoped that he was mistaken. “I don’t think so,” she answered, “I’m certain you’re not the type of guy someone would forget easily.” She had a coy smile on her lips. “What brings you here today?”
Reece kept staring at her, forgetting to process her question as he tried to place her in his memories.
“I am supposed to start motorcycle lessons today. It’s apparently a massive tourist attraction in this part of town.”
Realization dawned on Crissie and, with it, a sense of disbelief. Reece was her first client for the lessons, and, just as she had feared, he was her only client. Alex had mentioned it a few days ago after he had signed the man up. It must have completely slipped her mind and, after all of her innuendos, it was going to be a long few lessons.
