My representation of Hui (pronounced Hway 휘)
My representation of Hui (pronounced Hway 휘)
Her full name is Imani Sojourner Fairchild, and for the novel Hui 휘, I had to research both past and present info on the world of ballet, and any info I could find on North Korea. To read an excerpt, please click either the GIF or the photo:
Another brief excerpt from the novel:
Hmmm . . . it was faster to file a copyright and upload my Sampler on Scribd than Amazon.com
So, I’ve gotta go with Plan B. Click the cover and you’ll be re-directed to SCRIBD: **Update** Since its now live on Amazon I’ve taken it off Scribd in accordance with Amazon’s terms of service. Click the cover and it re-directs to the Amazon page:
A FREE PDF download is available for a limited time on SCRIBD. Just click the little “Share on social networks icon” to the right of the page:
**UPDATE** So the book is live on Amazon but the wait continues, because the nearest date to list it as free is tomorrow, Sept 30th.
A first look at the cover and a hint about the story line for RUSH 2 The Book of Aaliyah:
I have always been under the control and care of men. In the beginning of my life I followed orders because it was expected and I had no choice. But I am in America now. Here, I have chosen a different path – Aaliyah, from RUSH 2, The Book of Aaliyah
Okay, so I figured since I was already in Washington, DC with this new ebook about the elite on Capitol Hill:
I might as well do a spin off novella about another beautiful, brainy and wealthy woman who’s featured in Ivy League:

Before September ends, pick up the **FREE** Wikkid.Sexy.Cool. Book Sampler on Amazon starting
Sunday, September 28th Or Monday, Sept 29th, because it takes a bit longer for a book to go “live” on Amazon now.
I’ve been busy writing and honoring my promise to create more works with Asian, African, and First Nation lead characters.
I’m calling this promo Stock up September, where expanded excerpts from many upcoming novels will be featured. Some examples:
I did a couple of mock up promo posters using different effects.
In the land of the rising sun a free woman is enslaved, until a Samurai pledges his sword . . . and his love
I realize historicals may not be for everyone, so I’ve also got a few contemporary novels with diverse leading men that may appeal to readers. But I truly enjoy researching and writing historical novels for women.

I worked on another promo for the book HUI (pronounced Hway)
My apologies for the watermark.
I’m readying up The Player for release, and there are characters from other books who make an appearance in the story line. Also, the thing that took so long with that novel, is that its not just the two leads but also Ozzy, the ex husband.
His story needed to be explored, because I didn’t want it to be the typical evil ex tale. Rappers need love too.
I’ll be back to link this GIF to a short excerpt. Unfortunately, recent events have convinced me to make a change on the length of free excerpts.
Here’s a brief teaser of HUI:
First position . . .
Hui stood there, still and imposing, like one of the many large billboards with his likeness promoting the dance company. In a repeat of the countless hours they’d practiced together his arm was outstretched and his hand was elegantly positioned, urging her to grasp it. Instead of his usual attire of a tee shirt and black practice tights, he was completely naked.
This is another edited pic (two different photos merged together for a new ebook cover, but for now I’ll use it as a site promo).
This one doesn’t have the “glow” FX so the lines are a bit more defined:
I finished the cover for one of the books I’m working on featuring a sexy Asian leading male: Continue reading →
Here’s the GIF promo for the ongoing serial FERAL: A House of Tigris novel. I’m going to move the promo GIF to the right sidebar and link the first chapter once that’s done.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to try to make it easier for readers to navigate around this site and to look up books that may be of interest. I’m separating New Adult from Young Adult, and trying to get things into more order, especially since I’ve got a lot more books to release.
That’s the fictional hit song of a Trini rapper named Ozzy AKA The Great OZ from The Player. This ebook is part of my Caribbean Queens Series.
I’m releasing excerpts from all three books (excerpts from The Player and Love and Baseball are already up on this site). Next comes Game.Set.Love. featuring Tristan “Didi” Botha and Sinead Landon, two tennis doubles pros who fall madly in love. Carnival is what connects all three heroines. Sinead is from Jamaica,
I’m very grateful to all the readers who purchase my ebooks, and I have noticed readers buying from other countries.
One of my many goals in writing and self publishing concerns having a lead female character from outside of the United States. For 2014, the Caribbean Islands represented in each of the three books below are:
Love and Baseball – Barbados
The Player – Trinidad
Game. Set. Love. – Jamaica
In addition, I have ebooks that didn’t come out last year, but I hope to have out in early 2014 with female lead characters from other parts of the world:
So, the site is back up, though I didn’t get to do all my updates. Some of the plugins I use don’t play well with the new version of WordPress. Anyway, I’m hard at work continuing with a final (hopefully final) edit on Razher, Rise of the Gargoyles. I wanted to put up an excerpt this past weekend, but I missed my deadline, so I’ll try for Thursday, December 26th.
To pace myself I’ve been creating more covers and GIFS. A novella I’m excited about is “A Mighty Good Man” with a hero named Denzel “Denny” Mercado. He’s paired with a young lady who doesn’t believe guys like Denny exist.
I found a few more models for my 2014 covers. Here’s just one of them :
It’s Download December, where readers can get early access to some of the new books coming out from wikkid.sexy.cool.com
Starting this week, multiple chapter excerpts will be available to download on Amazon. The excerpts will be in a variety of genres, from scifi, military, suspense, new adult and commercial fiction (with a romance and diverse characters at the core of each story)
A motorcycle gang protecting their territory
Refugees attempting to revitalize a run-down area
A deranged man determined to keep his loved ones imprisoned
It all begins and ends in a RUSH
Because there aren’t enough books with minority protagonists as leads or who are integral to a story.
Scifi novels that WCS will have on sale shortly:
I hope to have this sampler out as a free download on Wednesday:
