Happy 2014! Only Kick-A$$ Black Women Heroines Need Apply…

faerie in the cityIt’s no secret that I love Urban Fantasy. It’s one of my favorite genres along with SciFi, Dystopian, and dark Paranormals. I adore Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series and Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series. But when it comes down to it, I get all excited when I see kick-a$$ black women heroines like in Kenya Wright’s Habitat series or Seressia Glass’ Shadow Chasers series. So, there I was in the middle of writing the Soul Eater when Noelle Pierce unveils this awesome dragon fairy with two guns drawn.  Why did she agree to redesign my website? Why did she provide me with this distraction? The dragon fairy princess would not stop assaulting my sleep until I wrote her introduction. I guess, it’s fitting, she is now the main focal point of my awesome website re-do so why shouldn’t I write her tale? Happy 2014! Let me know what you think of my new 2014 web design and meet Aisha, the Dragon Fairy Princess and descendant of darkness:

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 Blog: Joyce Chng tells why POC, non-US and non-white, Science Fiction matters…

Joyce-ChngWhen I started writing science fiction, I thought it was the best that had happened to me. I was only a child, almost at the cusp of teenage-hood.  Science fiction – in the form of Japanese cartoons (or properly termed “anime”- had opened my eyes to many worlds inhabited by different people. Likewise, I had also started reading voraciously and my worlds were dragons, spaceships and androids.
