Upcoming Broadcasts

WHAT'S ON THE MINDS OF OUR READERS? Black Pearls Magazine Holiday Book Festival, a totally online literary event, was created to start a national conversation about what we want our literary legacy to be. Each night, 8-10pm EST we will discuss how we can use the leaders, icons and storytellers of today, to create body of works that will assist emerging writers and authors in being more responsible with their work and positions. Everyone has a story! But, does that story have a purpose? What will the people in your life say about you after you are gone? What does your story hold for future generations? Let's create a life, a story, a journey that others will want to emulate! You are important to this community and we want to hear from you too. PURPOSE OF JIGGLE BELLS & COCKTAILS- Each year thousands of people - educators, concerned parents, community leaders, authors, poets and publishers - devote their time and resources to presenting the reader with great books! However, too many outstanding books do not get the attention and reader support that they deserve. We want to help with this state of affairs, so we encourage readers to purchase books to give as gifts 365 days a year. Authors and Publishers, visit the EDC Creations website for more book promotion opportunities: www.edc-creations.com.
