  • Savannah, GA (1888PressRelease) January 07, 2011 - While visiting Savannah last November, author Paulette Jones stumbled across the RMG Civil Rights Museum and knew she had to come back. All that she saw in Savannah intrigued her so when she received the opportunity to present her book at Books-A-Million at 8101 Abercorn St., January 15, 2011, 1pm-3pm, she jumped. "Savannah is one of the most beautiful cites I've ever seen" said Paulette Jones and " the museum was so historically rich that I knew I would be back." Paulette Jones and her publishing company, Your Time Publishing, LLC are philanthropist in their own right, always seeking ways to give back. They are using this event to donate to BMG Civil Rights Museum.

    Her fiction novel "HerStory: Revelation" has received a 5 star rating and outstanding reviews. The story takes place in and around the city of New Orleans. It has a heartbreaking beginning; a young child is snatched away from her family and given to a teenage boy as a gift. She lives under slave like conditions. When she becomes a teenager she is brutally beaten then forced out into a world she has no concept of. She finds a secluded little house in the woods, where she gives birth to her daughter, Lillian, when the baby starts talking; she names her mother, Mema. After living there for over four years, Mema becomes fearful that someone would steal her baby and use her, as a gift, so she moves to the city of New Orleans. Mema's earlier suffering brought about many types of mental issues, and unfortunately her daughter had to endure her mother's erratic behavior. Because of her appearance Lillian had issues of her own. Lillian makes it through puberty and meets the man of her dreams. She finds herself showing some of Mema's mental behavior toward the people she loves. With the help of time, and an old friend, she finally faces her demons, forcing the mental anguish out of her family's future, giving them the opportunity to do great things.
