Nanowrimo 2013 Births the Soul Eater

 

SoulEater 300x200 2I’ve been diligently working on the Soul Eater book for Nanowrimo.  Each morning, I’ve been waking up to write 1700 words.  The Soul Eater gushes out in a deep purge. Most mornings, I have no idea the direction that this story will take.  The process is mindboggling. In fact, this entire African Elementals series has taken me for a ride.  As I unveil the Soul Eater cover,  here’s some of my thoughts about this dark urban fantasy series that just refuses to let me go.  Let me know what you think:

Guest Fest: Does Being Black Mean Writing Black? By Alicia Michaels

aliciamichaelsI will start this post by admitting to living in a bit of a bubble my entire life. I’m a small town girl from the suburbs with two loving parents and a little brother. The small town I lived in was situated right beside Fort Hood Army base, the largest military installation in the world. While my father got out of the army before I got to Kindergarten, the presence of the military was a strong force in my community. As such, I am accustomed to a multicultural mix of people living and working around me. It is not unusual for soldiers to come home from overseas with Korean or German wives and for biracial children to dominate schools.

Guest Fest: Don’t Judge a Book by its Color By Christine Leo/ Christine Collier

Christine_CollierOnce upon a time, there were two little girls born into two very different worlds. One was from an affluent family who enjoyed summer vacations and regular trips to the orthodontist. Her father was a doctor and her mother was a nurse. She grew up in a nice neighborhood where they owned a great big house with a lovely green yard. When the girl finished high school, she was given a brand new car and her parents sent her away to the college of her choosing, all expenses paid.

Trayvon 2.0: A Creative Science Fiction Response

Trayvon_McCallas_InvertThe hunt and murder of Trayvon Martin seems like a fictionalized scene from a teen dystopian novel similar to the Hunger Games. The only problem is that this scene is real.  I’ve been keeping up with the news on this case and I am both horrified and enraged.  My feelings stem from two fronts, one because I am Black and the other because I am a mother.  The injustice boils.

Haven's Bad Boy Has a Steamy Interracial Love Affair

Duke_and_EviThe second season of Haven has picked up. I've got so many questions about each of the main characters. I want to dig more and dig deeper. One character that I think is a "hot" bad boy is Duke Crocker played by Eric Balfour. He is always engaged in some form of criminal behavior that involves smuggling something to a secret location.  He is the gothic hero because I still feel like he's got some good values buried underneath. So imagine my suprise when Evi Ryan played by Vinessa Antoine steps-in.
