Celebrating 10 Wonderful Years!

Happy Spring!

This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Xpress Yourself Publishing, and we're celebrating with a BANG with 7 new releases, 1 new author and 2 pieces of great news!

Xpress Yourself Publishing welcomes new author Toney Rowe into our literary family. Born a female, but living her life as a male was not an easy road for Toney. Read her fascinating story in her memoir, Trapped Inside A Female's Body.

Some of your favorite authors have returned and have truly written novels that will not disappoint! See them all under New Releases on this month's Newsletter.

Lastly, I am happy to announce that Cost of Our Affairs by Linda R. Herman and Loving Simone by Jessica Tilles was selected by Black Expressions Book Club and are now available in hardback! If you're not a member of Black Expressions Book Club, you can join up and get our books for only $0.50! Whomever heard of buying a hardback book for $0.50? I think it's fantabulous, and I couldn't resist and purchased both books for $1.00! I love a great buy, and I know you do, too. If you're a member of Black Expressions, you can get both books for $12.95 each—an excellent price for hardback, and cheaper than our prices for trade paperpback! :-)

That's it for now, but I'll leave you with words that were given to me at my 6th grade commencement by my 100-year-old aunt:

"Love many, trust few, learn to paddle your own canoe!" —Aunt Fena

Literally yours,
Jessica Tilles
Proud Publisher of Phenomenal Writers
