Zane, the New York Times bestselling author and Queen of Erotic Fiction,
brings a new collection of lesbian erotica that will blow the sheets off
What happens when "The Finest Man" you have ever laid eyes on is a woman?
What happens when a woman comes home to her man after a hard day's work with
"Lipstick on Her Collar?" What happens when a married woman runs across the
love of her life -- another woman -- who insists that "It's All or Nothing?"
Is there such a thing as playing too "Hard to Get?" What happens when "Mom's
Night Out" turns into group sex? What happens when you discover your true
sexuality "At Last?" All of these questions and more are answered within the
pages of Purple Panties.
Written by women from all over the world, here is a new level of lesbian
erotica, compiled by Zane, that promises the most exciting and steamy
reading experience possible. These stories move beyond race, age, and all
walks of life, including long-hidden passions, secret rendezvous with
strangers, and May-December romances.
With Zane's ever-growing popularity, and the need for increasingly quality
erotica, Purple Panties will satisfy a long-standing demand for
African-American lesbian literature.
In the tradition of such successful erotica anthologies as Chocolate Flava
and Caramel Flava, Purple Panties uncovers a new world of evocative
risk-taking that has never been explored before from a lesbian perspective.
The adventures in these stories are beyond everyone's wildest imaginations.

�Young men today have been
bombarded with images of wealth and success that tell them that buying the
hottest car or the most bling-blingin� jewelry is what they should be
motivated by. There is an overwhelming sales pitch targeted at these young
men that subliminally suggests that material goods are what makes them real
men. I want young men to have knowledge of the things that bring them true
empowerment: education, a strong sense of purpose, compassion, confidence,
and humility, to name a few.
It is no accident that I graduated from Brown University magna cum laude and
received graduate degrees with honors from Harvard Law School and the
Kennedy School of Government. My family taught me that doing my best,
educating myself, and being in service to others were not optional and that
having values and being truthful were not negotiable.
I am living proof that these principles work. Through the letters in this
book, I wish to pass on to other young men my grandfathers� legacies of
education, hard work, determination, and success.�

Glass vases filled with marbles crashed all around us
as he began tossing linens from the bed. As the marbles scattered, we
laughed in unison ... I remember the exact moment that I first laid on my
back for him ... My legs were wrapped around his waist and just before his
body was to merge with mine, I noticed his upper right chest. On it was a
tattoo with the words "Pain is Love."
Confessions of a Video Vixen is the widely anticipated
memoir of Karrine Steffans, the once sought-after sexy siren who appeared in
the music videos of multiplatinum hip-hop artists such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly,
and LL Cool J. A top-paid video dancer, Karrine transitioned to film when
acclaimed director F. Gary Gray picked her to costar in his film A Man

and New York restaurants, and trysts with the celebrities featured in the
pages of People and In Touch magazines only skims the surface of Karrine's
This memoir -- part tell-all, part cautionary tale --
shows how Karrinne came to be the confidante of so many, why she kept their

Hope and Faith: two things that everyone needs to survive.
But the words take on a different meaning in the form of a set of twins who
attend Crockett University in Washington, D.C. As seniors, they are looking
forward to a bright future in corporate America. Meanwhile, they have
decided to relieve some of the stress involved in getting a higher education
by being members of APF.
Soror Ride 'em High and Soror Lick 'em Low, originally
hail from Atlanta and, like most twins, they share a connection. In fact,
their physical bond is so strong, that one can often feel a pounding in her
vagina while the other is engaged in sexual activity. But everything is not
perfect when it comes to being a twin. Sometimes animosity and jealousy can
creep in; especially when Hope and Faith find themselves both attracted to
the same man on campus. Is blood really thicker than water? Or, in this
case, thicker than basic carnal desires?
In this long-anticipated second volume in the APF series, a follow-up toThe
Sisters of APF: The Indoctrination of Soror Ride Dick,New
York TimesBestselling Author
Zane, once again proves why she is "The Queen of Erotic Fiction." Over the
years many have tried to emulate her but Zane's imagination is not to be
replicated any time in the near future. The freak nights of APF are some of
the most artistic, exhilarating, erotic experiences that have ever graced
the pages of a book; evidenced by the thousands of emails Zane has received
over the years from women yearning to join the sorority.

Beloved writer J. California Cooper has won a legion of loyal fans and
much critical acclaim for her powerful storytelling gifts. In language both
spare and direct yet wondrously lyrical, LIFE IS SHORT BUT WIDE is an
irresistible story of family that proves no matter who you are or what you
do, you arenever too old
to chase your dreams.
Like the small towns J. California Cooper has so vividly portrayed in her
previous novels and story collections, Wideland, Oklahoma, is home to
ordinary Americans struggling to raise families, eke out a living, and
fulfill their dreams. In the early twentieth century, Irene and Val fall in
love in Wideland. While carving out a home for themselves, they also allow
neighbors Bertha and Joseph to build a house and live on their land. The
next generation brings two girls for Irene and Val, and a daughter for
Bertha and Joseph. As the families cope with the hardships that come with
changing times and fortunes, and people are born and pass away, the
characters learn the importance of living one's life boldly and squeezing
out every possible moment of joy.
Cooper brilliantly captures the cadences of the South and draws a picture
of American life at once down-to-earth and heartwarming in this-as her wise
narrator will tell you-’strange, sad, kind�a beautiful, life story.� It is a
story about love that leads to the ultimate realization that whoever you
are, and whatever you do, life is short, but it is also wide.

now are nearing the final decade of the 20th century. Recently, there has
been an unraveling and an analysis of the core issue of the first global
power sysem of mass oppression-- the power system of racism (white
supremacy). One the collective victim (non-white population) understands
this fundamental issue, the ultimate organizing of all of the appropriate
behaviors necessary to neutralize the great injustice of the white supremacy
power system will only be a matter of time. The length of time required to
neutralize global white supremacy will be inversely proportional to 1) the
level of understanding of the phenomenon; plus 2) the evolution of self- and
group-respect, the will, determination and discipline to practice the
appropriate counter-racist behaviors--on the part of the non-white victims
of white supremacy."

Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream
Click to order viaAmazon
In July 2004, Barack Obama electrified the Democratic National Convention
with an address that spoke to Americans across the political spectrum. One
phrase in particular anchored itself in listeners� minds, a reminder that
for all the discord and struggle to be found in our history as a nation, we
have always been guided by a dogged optimism in the future, or what Senator
Obama called "the audacity of hope."
Now, in The Audacity of Hope, Senator Obama calls for a different brand
of politics -- a politics for those weary of bitter partisanship and
alienated by the "endless clash of armies" we see in congress and on the
campaign trail; a politics rooted in the faith, inclusiveness, and nobility
of spirit at the heart of "our improbable experiment in democracy." He
explores those forces -- from the fear of losing to the perpetual need to
raise money to the power of the media -- that can stifle even the
best-intentioned politician. He also writes, with surprising intimacy and
self-deprecating humor, about settling in as a senator, seeking to balance
the demands of public service and family life, and his own deepening
At the heart of this book is Senator Obama's
vision of how we can move beyond our divisions to tackle concrete problems.
He examines the growing economic insecurity of American families, the racial
and religious tensions within the body politic, and the transnational
threats -- from terrorism to pandemic -- that gather beyond our shores. And
he grapples with the role that faith plays in a democracy -- where it is
vital and where it must never intrude. Underlying his stories about family,
friends, members of the Senate, even the president, is a vigorous search for
connection: the foundation for a radically hopeful political consensus.

modern ways of life. These scriptures teach that the prevention of diseases

they live. Health-minded Americans will learn how to avoid the
disease-causing preservatives, growth hormones, and pesticides of the meat
and dairy industries that pollute the once-fresh foods that the public
consumes. Also included is an in-depth discussion of Satan's influence on

alcohol addictions among the American people.
