Witch . . . please
Witch . . . please
And another, and still others as I work to build my own brand in the world of publishing.
For example, the historical fantasy novel Long Ago and Far Away, featuring these two lovers:
Spawned these sister-witches:
An extended sneak peek of Long Ago and Far Away will be up on Amazon later this week.
That book somehow inspired this novella on a young black woman raised by a religious cult, and how she’s instrumental in taking the leader down. Here’s a promo I’ve worked on for the novel:
Look for the ebook CHERISH in May.
Finally, I’ve got another book featuring an Asian leading man and an African leading lady. Nyesha is from Nigeria, and Takeshi is Japanese.
To read a brief excerpt from the book, continue reading:

See, what happened was . . .
The youngest sister witch of the trio is PAGAN:
Let me first start out by saying how disappointed I am with the new TV season. Specifically, the way black female leads on shows like Sleepy Hollow, Vampire Diaries and Minority Report are getting short changed.
I’d really hoped that Sleepy Hollow would get back on track with Abby and Crane, but no. So while I love me some Lance Gross, even his addition can’t help the show now.
With season two destroying the story line from season one (and thereby ensuring the show’s demise), Sleepy Hollow has devolved into the leads battling a “monster of the week” with no real center. On Vampire Diaries Bonnie is a witch with no real powers and the writers still can’t seem to figure out who to pair her with romantically. Minority Report? Again, while there is a black female lead on the show, unlike her male counterpart in the movie Minority Report, Vega has no family, no real backstory, and soon the show may have no viewers.
I’m still watching these shows, but as their ratings continue to drop, I don’t see any of them staying on the air.
I won’t even get into Heroes Reborn killing off The Haitian (a fave character of mine, and a very bad move imho on the show’s part). And while I do still watch Empire . . . I think I better stop right there.
So, in short, two new characters of mine were borne out of frustration. Asian American Thomas Nomad and my badass female lead, NIM. Breaking the rules of engagement regarding otherworldly beings, Thomas and NIM’s relationship is sexy, SEXUAL and fluid
Meet Thomas Nomad. His adventures with the dark side are part of my experiment with genre forms. I’m still working on his GIF promo
I wasn’t satisfied with my ending for GAIJIN, so I’ve changed it (for the better I hope)
I’ve got two versions of the same bad ass anti-heroine. In the first pic, she’s got lion teeth. The second pic was actually the one I’d edited first, but she looked too much like a vampire (or werewolf with the bottom teeth), so I changed it to better represent her species, which is Panthera Leo. The lion teeth may be a bit too big for my taste, so I may just go with my first edit (plus the teeth are whiter).
Just a few of my anti-heroines:

I’m jumping back into the NA genre with a duology about a small town and the jocks at the center of a suspense filled love story.

Listening to: Sade’s Kiss of Life and Mariah Carey’s Sweet Fantasy. I loved the movie BELLE
So I used the film as inspiration for a Gothic erotic romance that spans several time periods. Excerpts from Ivy League and the dark fantasy Long Ago and Far Away will be up shortly.
I really enjoy creating ebook covers by pairing interracial couples together. I’ve got a number of new excerpts to put up, but here are a few new things I’m working on. I’m still deciding whether to make certain books serials (release a few chapters at a time on Amazon) or complete novels.
