Soul Eater Series Update: Going forward with a Summer Nanowrimo

SoulEater 300x200Last November, I participated in Nanowrimo during the month of November. It was an amazing experience. I was able to complete the first draft of my Soul Eater novel.  What I figured out, though, was that this was more than one short novel.  After much thought, gnashing, and trepidation, I came to the conclusion that what I was really writing ended up being a 3-part serial or episodic novel.

Guest Fest: Meet Paranormal Romance Author Shonda Brock!

Shonda Brock PsHave you ever been dying to tell a story, yet at the same time afraid to tell it?  I don’t mean just any around-the-way tale, but a true story that happened to you and no one else knows. I’m talking about every time you think to open your mouth to tell it, your heart starts pounding, your tongue becomes the Sahara Desert and the fear of saying it out loud makes you change your mind.

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:

Interview Conducted By Grad Student at University of Texas at San Antonio

EStewartI was very excited to learn of a course where students studied Black women’s speculative fiction. I would have enjoyed taking a course like that in Grad school.  Several of my sister writers are being interviewed for this assignment (Kenya Wright and Crystal Connor are two that come to mind).  After working with Elizabeth, I thought it’d be neat to bring Academia into the world of the writer.  Here are Elizabeth’s very conscientious and thoughtful interview questions. I appreciated her hard work and thoroughness.
