Three Women. Three Witches with three different tales on life as a supernatural.
Their stories are coming soon.
Lilith is from West Africa. I didn’t create the animated flying birds. Attribution for that GIF is Mr.EvilBoy (name is also in the bottom left corner of this combined GIF). Lilith’s face in this promo is inspired by the beautiful Ethiopian model Senait Gidey.
YES, I have new books coming out.
Thank you readers, for your patience.

More graphic novel promos from my black witches series are in this post.
Lilith makes an entrance:
Lilith is from West Africa. Ondine is from the US. Pagan is from England.
The name of this erotic paranormal series won’t be revealed yet:
The Project: Create a short graphic novel that combines several of my upcoming ebook characters and crosses literary genres.
Here’s how the above scene will be on Page 2 of the graphic novel:
First thing – The Boys are back! This is a scifi anti-Superhero show on Amazon Prime Video featuring three of my favorite actors, Karl Urban, Laz Alonzo and Giancarlo Giuseppe Alessandro Esposito
Here’s the original:
The Boys are based on a popular graphic novel of the same name.
Since I create ebook promos, I decided to give my trio of witches Lilith, Ondine and Pagan the graphic novel treatment. Here’s a sneak peek at Pagan’s comix:
My Sex and the Single Paraplegic Series continues with Emmanuel and Christian’s virtual love affair.

So, showing more South Asian luv, my entangled IR couples with ebooks coming out:
Readers, I hope this post finds you and your loved ones safe and well.
I pray for us all.
My upcoming NCAA basketball love story:
Meet Yul Sukari, All American. A southeast asian leading man and athletic marvel. Yul has one goal in mind, and that’s to play in the NBA.
But what happens when transfer student Rhea Chappelle doesn’t fall for the big man on campus? Is playing for the NBA still number one on Yul’s list, or is numero uno now all about winning Rhea’s heart?
College basketball season is winding down, but I’m ramping up with new books that feature female players:
Emanuelle is a character who continues my Sex and the Single Paraplegic Series. The first book featured Torii and Ethan in At Last:
My other basketball heroine:
Her love interest:
Erotic Interracial Romance:
They’re called “bigs” on a basketball team, and my upcoming ebook features college sweethearts who play NCAA ball.
Yul Sukari (I decided to change his first name from Yohan) and Rhea Chappelle are the bigs on their respective male and female squads.
New promo for my books/website:
Ancient China and multicultural Chinese citizens:
“China’s Qing Dynasty, established by the Manchu people who ruled from 1644–1912, is described as having been a vast multicultural empire. But it appears multicultural might also be a euphemism for multiracial. Nothing illustrates this better than the black and white photos taken by visitors from Europe in the mid-to-late 1800s. John Thomson, an Irish photographer, was one of the first to capture images that reveal a surprisingly more diverse makeup of then-contemporary China.”
After doing more research, I narrowed down the point in time I wanted to focus on. So while Pagan’s novel is paranormal fantasy, I’ve included real landmarks and ethnic groups in order to put a black woman in China during this period. Wuxia tales overwhelmingly feature characters of Chinese ancestry, however I enjoy the genre so much that I wanted to feature an inter-racial romance. There are supernatural elements in my story, which usually aren’t part of WUXIA but Xianxia (仙侠).
Still, I’m dubbing this “Black Wuxia.”
Simply put, Wuxia (武侠) is a genre of Chinese writing featuring the lives and adventures of martial artists. The stories are always set in ancient China, typically between the Tang and middle Ching dynasties (approximately AD 618 to AD 1800). The main attraction of the Wuxia novels is the myriad of powerful martial arts, or kung fu, wielded by the story characters.
I’ve created new visuals, some in graphic novel form to promote my upcoming ebook featuring 3 witches and their love interests.
The final promo is from my ebook “The Queen of Comedy” which is also set for release. The promo features 1960s comedian David Latimore and his wife, singer Contessa Earle.
Gargoyle Karnage Xian as a Wuxia Hero:
Tonight’s the night! Game five of the WNBA finals
Jonquel Jones for the Connecticut Sun . . . Elena Delle Donne for the Washington Mystics.
The teams are tied 2-2. I like both teams, so I’ll be rooting for each.
Park Hyo-shin can SANGGGG.
Love me some Luther Vandross! Luther’s version of Superstar is classic, and imho Park Hyo-shin does Luther proud.
Here’s audio of Luther (courtesy of Stankfunkmusic74) singing Superstar live and riffing:

I didn’t forget about Vamps:
UPDATE – Family comes first, so I had to step away from writing in order to help out.
I hope to get back on track with book releases. My sincere apologies for the delay.
Here’s a blast from the past:
On the cover of Nino Ferrer’s 1974 album Nino and Radiah, beautiful American model/actress/singer Radiah Frye, (wiki bio is in French, view on Google to translate into English). A jazzy soul song from this album can heard here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1s0-tbR-nzs
Radiah Frye’s daughter is choreographer Mia Frye.
Kinda, sorta cover reveal:
The promo above is a mock up cover from my upcoming black witch series, though the title will be different.
Before I go into the Raptors thrilling game six win, here’s another promo I’ve created for my New Adult collegiate basketball ebook One on One:
Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors. Game 6 of the NBA Finals came down to the wire, with the Raptors winning a 114-110 victory over the Golden State Warriors. This is the first title for the Raptors, and they also made history with point guard Jeremy Lin:
“After the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship against the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 on Thursday, point guard Jeremy Lin became the first Asian American player to take home a ring. Cleveland Cavaliers’ Jordan Clarkson, who is of Filipino descent, made it to last year’s finals, but did not take home a championship. ”
It’s important to note that Jeremy is the first Asian American, that’s why I have it in bold. The first Asian was Mengke Bateer with the 2003 San Antonio Spurs. The second Asian to win a ring played for the 2009 NBA Champs Los Angeles Lakers and his name is Sun Yue.
The Raptors Pascal Siakam also made history as the first player from Cameroon to win an NBA Championship ring.
I’m a big fan of Jeremy Lin. His NBA journey is a study of hard work and talent.
In my fictional story about an Indonesian collegiate star, Yohan Sukari uses Jeremy Lin as a role model in his own quest to become an NBA player.
I’ve had to rediscover my love of writing, due to my mom’s death and a change in my family duties. Books were put on hold, but I plan on releasing new ones this month. I thank all readers for your patience during this trying time.
What I love about writing is the ability to world build as I see fit (but still within the confines of reality when creating fiction based on real life). That’s why I’m excited about the upcoming New Adult offerings, like the basketball romance ONE on ONE.
This book focuses on two elite NCAA basketball players, one male and one female. The supporting characters include Hispanic and LGBTQ voices, because being inclusive is one of the reasons I decided to self-publish.
Make-up sex is the greatest thing ever.

My fictional sister witches:
Writing and editing can cause eye strain (I somehow forget to blink when I stare at my computer and smart phone!) so my family dragged me away from my tech tools. This gave me a chance to be a fangirl and catch up with one of my favorite TV shows, What We Do in the Shadows.
I also got treated to Avengers: Endgame and of course I’ve been watching Game of Thrones.
Tall Story – She’s 6’8, he’s a 7 footer from Indonesia.
Remember this name: P. P. Arnold. In 1966 at the tender age of twenty she went over to England, recording with the greats of British music: Mic Jagger, Cat Stevens, Rod Stewart, the band Small Faces and Barry Gibbs.
Patricia Arnold sang backup for the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, and traveled with them overseas. She quit the tour in 1966 and stayed in England, noting this: “A young black woman on her own in America in a white environment would not have been treated as well as I was in England.”
Pat’s UK hits included “Angel of the Morning” which became a big hit in the US for Merrilee Rush and country singer Juice Newton.
For more on P. P. Arnold’s legendary musical history, please visit her website: https://pparnold.com/biography
In later posts I’ll have more info on black women who made music history, since two of my novels deal with groundbreaking fictional singers (Jukebox Vol. One and The Queen of Comedy)
I’ve got new ebooks coming out in
