On Wednesday, February 27, 2008, Conversations Book Club launched what is considered a groundbreaking project to unite the hiphop community & the literary community:
HIPHOP LOVERS READ!
It is the hope of Conversations that www.hiphoploversread.webs.com will do much to show that the Hiphop community is about more than a way of dressing, talking or even music. For many, it is a lifestyle and if we want to communicate with it we have to meet the community halfway.
Moderated by Conversations Book Club Founder Cyrus A. Webb, the site takes the interests and concerns of the Hiphop community and matches it with authors and books that coincide with it. It is our hope that visitors to the site will make it theirs by taking ownership of the message boards and suggesting your own books to read.
Visitors are invited to sign the guestbook as well tell others about what will become the new haven for lovers of urban literature. For more information, contact Cyrus A. Webb at 601.896.5616 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
C'mon. JOIN THE ADDICTION: Get hooked on books!
Conversations Book Club Founder Expands with New Partnerships, Opportunities
Since the first time his name was in print back in 1999, Cyrus A. Webb knew his life would never be the same. Nine years later he is an accomplished visual and literary artist/radio and television show host, newspaper columnist, magazine founder and editor as well as the President of the nation's largest interactive literary organization. Additionally, he is the President of the Rankin County Arts Alliance and the Chief of Staff of the public relations firm For The People Productions. All of this, and he has yet to celebrate his 33rd birthday.
With all of his accomplishments, Webb is constantly looking for ways to further his brand and do his part to contribute to the literary scene.
Beginning Saturday, March 1, 2008 he will add another slash to his resume: book reviewer for the State of Mississippi's largest daily newspaper! His weekly column that will be found in the "Rankin Ledger" section of the newspaper every Saturday will allow him to give an honest review of the books that he is currently reading and recommending to others. This is just one other way that Webb's brand will introduce him to people all over the world. (Thank you to the Editor of the Rankin Ledger for making this possible.)
Currently Webb is contributing articles to the Jackson Advocate Newspaper, Books2Mention Magazine, Blagazine and RAWSISTAZ---with the focus being on reading. It is his hope that this new endeavor will help others to appreciate books and look at them in a whole new way.
To submit your books for review, email email@example.com. You can also contact him at 601.896.5616.

Tru Publishing, created by hiphop entrepreneuer Corey "C-Murder" Miller, specializes in urban fiction and promises to change the way that books are marketed and produced in the future. Tru is pleased to announce that its first relesae is GROWN & GANGSTA by Miami, Florida rapper Jacki-O.
Conversations Book Club President Cyrus A. Webb describes the book this way: "Jacki-O's GROWN & GANGSTA has everything you would expect from C-Murder's TRU Publishing: strong alliances, power couples and lessons that people of all backgrounds can easily relate to. GROWN & GANGSTA is the story of friendship---REAL friendship---that endures the hurt, highs and lows and success and proves itself time and again.
"The characters dance along the pages in perfect harmony, each lending credence and strength to one another while standing on their own as individuals. All of us will see ourselves or someone we know in one or more of the 6 main characters that we're introduced to, whether we like what we see or not.
"GROWN & GANGSTA is for the grown and sexy and reeks of sophisticated fiction that normally takes years to develop. TRU Publishing knocks this one out of the park with its debut release and Jacki-O maintains her sexy, street-cred persona with a novel that people will be talking about long after its closed shut."
"PASSION 4 FASHION" SHOW--- March 5-6, 2008
TRU Publishing & Conversations Book Club are proud to bring you our 1st "PASSION 4 FASHION" show, featuring our special guest Miami's own recording artist/author Jacki-O!
