What It Means and How To Make Sure It Never Happens Again
More than 16 million people had posted their #MeToo story and support against sexual harassment by mid-October as a reaction to Rose McGowan’s brave admission that she had allegedly been raped by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. A groundswell of reaction to and exposure of this sexual predation was unleashed that has spread throughout Europe and beyond. New revelations of unacceptable behavior in every industry break every day as people come forward in response to the viral #MeToo posts. Protests are scheduled such as the “Take back the Workplace” Hollywood march in November of 2017, and legislation is being drafted in New York and California to finally change the way things have been for far too long.
This is the turning point. Things are going to change.
This is a historic moment and it needs to be memorialized, passed around and passed on. Although social media is a fantastic means of igniting a fire, it needs to keep burning, like a torch.
So Riverdale Avenue Books, a woman-owned leading hybrid publisher, is putting its money, words and power, behind this and publishing this collection of 26 essays from people who understand want to make this change, and we, as a society, have got to figure out a way to drive that change forward.
So pass this book around. Share it with your sons, brothers, fathers, your daughters, sisters and mothers, your co-workers and friends. Read passages to them, if they won’t read it for themselves. Leave it on the desk of someone who should know better.
Help us make this movement more than a hashtag.

Thanksgiving needs a marketing do-over. It should be the sexiest time of the year when you consinder that we get four full days off from work, too much good food and drink, football, left-overs, binge-watching, and the intoxicating rush of shopping, either in the flesh or online, for presents for others and yourself. And maybe even a trip back home to rekindle old flames.
In these pages you’ll find some bonafide Thanksgiving smut, but this is mostly a collection of hot spanking stories featuring everything from alpha werewolves to strict librarians, and even an installment in Trinity’s Blacio’s continuing naughty stepbrother series.

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Watergate was envisioned as a book that looks at the wider ripples of the Watergate explosion and how it changed the way Americans saw themselves, their country and the world around them.
This is both a serious, and irreverent book, put together by a team of two newspaper journalists and ten college interns from throughout the country. Think of it as a primer on Watergate for the generation that grew up watching The Daily Show.
The book offer original, exclusive interviews Congressman Charles Rangel and Senator Elizabeth Holtzman about their roles in the Watergate Hearings and how they see Watergate today.
It also features a complete guide to all the Watergate-related convictions, as well as recipes for Watergate cocktails and even the infamous Watergate dessert!
A woman’s sensuality changes as she matures and goes through the ebb and flow of youthful blossoming, middle aged knowledge and mature freedom.
This book is a celebration of all the hot moms out there. And I also like to think that around every park bench, and grocery store aisle, there’s a person of discerning taste who can really see how amazing you all are.
Happy MILF Day!
