Summer Reading Fest: Flee (The Short Story Prequel to the Soul Eaters) Chapter Three

Flee small - CopyChapter Two was intense.  The mixture of the box and domestic violence has placed Shania in a new frame of mind.  Her transformation is on the way.  At the end of this summer reading fest, I’ll write a blog post or two about the controversial issues in this short story.  But for now, please take a look at Chapter Three.  You’ll get the chance to meet her best friend, Maddy Lynh.  Take a look.

Summer Reading Fest: Flee (The Short Story Prequel to The Soul Eaters) Chapter One


Flee small - CopyWelcome to my summer reading fest.  I’d like to introduce everyone to my heroine, Shania. Her grandmother has passed away and left her an interesting wood box that hums and glows.  Nobody else can see that part, though. This box is opening up her earth elemental magic. It’s awakening her lost memories. 

 

I’m hoping to inspire conversations around the Africana symbols, Shania’s creepy ex-boyfriend, Thor, her dog, or even if a romance heroine is allowed to have an abortion.Let me know what you think.

Remembering LA Banks: Rest in Peace

LA_BanksI just heard the news of the passing of LA Banks.  Leslie Banks has been an inspiration to me. I’ve always felt a kinship with her because of her love of writing paranormal romance and urban fantasy.  I was so sad to learn that she was ill with adrenal cancer. I prayed that she would regain both her health and strength.  I’m so struck with her death, that I had to stop for a few minutes and remember her warm personality, comforting smile, supportive nature, and awesome storytelling ability.

NY Times Bestselling Author LA Banks Touched a Group of African-American High School Students during a Saturday visit…

 

LA Banks and Mrs. ThybulleI had the pleasure of visiting the media center at Parkview High School in Gwinnett County, Georgia a couple of years ago on a Saturday. To my surprise, Mrs. Roschell Thybulle’s students waited patiently for the arrival of LA Banks. The students were overly excited and ready to discuss the books. What struck me the most, were that these students were reluctant readers. Here’s an interview with the teacher, Mrs. Thybulle, who spearheaded this event.
