Ondine St. Gauthier:
Chinese Royalty. Playboy. Fine as hell. Wealthy beyond measure. And he’s a Gargoyle. That’s Karnage, aka Dà túshā
I’m working on Ondine’s promos (in-between editing my other books). I’d done this earlier one for Lilith and Yuri:
The way I relax while writing and editing (after my nine to five job) is to do promos for my books. Lately I’ve been in a paranormal state of mind, that’s why most of them have been about my trio of witches and their love interests. Here are a few featuring Lilith and her vampire lover Yuri:
Instead of naming my new page on this site “creature feature” I’m going to call it Monsters and Lovers, since it highlights paranormal pairings. Here’s a larger version of the photo widget I created for it:
Comic book nerd here, from wayyyyy back (DC’s Metal Men was a favorite) Yes, I read Spiderman, Superman, the X-Men among others. Black Panther/Black Leopard was another fave, so yeah, I’m glad about the movie.
I must also give props to Wesley Snipes as BLADE.
Scifi channel has Blade playing on demand this month, and I still enjoy that groundbreaking movie. The opening scenes where Blade makes his entrance during the vampire rave is visually arresting:
Wesley and the gorgeous N’Bushe Wright were the male and female leads. Wesley was a co-producer and also did most of his own fighting scenes, since he’d studied martial arts.
Now its Black Panther ‘s time to shine. Congrats to director/screenwriter Ryan Coogler and the cast and crew of this wonderful film.
I’ve included links to a few articles that may be of interest:
Not much more to add, especially with another school shooting, yet another American tragedy. My prayers go out to all those affected.
Hope to see Black Panther this weekend –saw it. Loved it. Great cinematography, costumes, acting, and the dramatic story line twist (T’Challa finding out his father made a choice that came back to haunt the entire tribe) was utterly heart wrenching– and to finish editing books.
Ondine is from New Orleans:
While Lilith is the strongest of the three witches, Ondine is the most feared (the reason is part of her origin story).
Emmanuel Howard goes after the man she wants:
Another promo for Karnage:
Next up will be The Red Witch of Sorrows, Ondine and Ronin the FireDrake
Just a few more promos I’ve worked on with the Gargoyle Karnage and his lady love, Pagan.
His name is Karnage Xian, brother of cutie-pie Havoc Xian (from the previously released ebook RAZHER):
Karnage is also part of the Nightstalkers:
Part one of this two parter introduced readers to Lilith. These next GIFs feature the two other witches in this trio, namely, Ondine and Pagan:
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:
Oh hell yeah . . .

More promos for my trio of sister-witches:
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:
“Bruh” saves the world

Little Big Men:
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.
Honoring the Past:

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.
