    Werewolves Rule, Bruh

    I was so excited when I saw this poster, because I thought WOLVES would be a weekly TV series starring Jason Momoa.

    Wolves poster. The film is set for release this year (2014)

     

    It’s not, but who knows? Perhaps it will be. Right now its a soon to be released film about werewolves.

    I couldn’t resist doing some photo editing:

    I love Werewolves, and I’ve been a fan ever since the old black and white classic with Lon Chaney Jr. started playing on television. Lon wasn’t a Werewolf though. He was a Wolf Man. But his angst over becoming a monster by the light of the full moon and hurting the woman he loved was way before the whole Interview with the Vampire and Twilight craze (No surprise that I was team Jacob from the get-go).

    Sequel to Razher delayed

     

    I won’t be able to publish Razher, Rise of the Gargoyles just yet. Since I didn’t make my deadline I’m releasing a free sneak peek while I work on some plot points in the book. A sequel always has more riding on it, and I want to get things right. I also need to finalize which cover to use, because I’ve created a number of them.

    JR Ward cover, and more Havoc

    Just saw the cover for JR Ward’s new BDB novel:

     

    The King, the new Black Dagger Brotherhood novel by JR Ward. Release date is March, 2014

     

     

    Just for the fun of it, I decided to bring Wrath’s hair out a bit more ūüôā

     

    With a very quick bit of photo editing, I loosened Wrath’s hair and made his green eyes pop a bit more. I think this model reminds me of the actor who plays Eric on True Blood. Plus the throne kinda¬†puts me in mind¬†of HBO’s Game of Thrones.

     

     

    Well, back to my own PN Romance books. I’ve¬†completed another¬†Havoc promo:

    Cover Reveals and a snippet from Razher II

    I love creating covers and promos. I learned Photoshop (my daughter was so patient with me ūüôā ) but I also work with Paint.net.¬†The covers serve as both¬†ads for upcoming releases, and¬†to showcase the beauty and variety¬†among of women of color.

    Sequel to The Stone Boy, The Stone Hero takes place over five years later

     

     

    The Stone Hero is the sequel to The Stone Boy. All the characters from The Stone Boy are back, and it gives me a chance to introduce a deaf Afro-Cuban teen named Trayvon Wilfredo Lima who has his own book:

    Now, here’s a¬†scene from¬†Razher, Rise of the Gargoyles:

    Updates on sequels and business moves

    Excerpts from the sequel to Jukebox are almost done and I hope to have them up shortly.

    JUKEBOX Volume II

     

     

    What’s surprising is how readers have responded to RAZHER.

    Razher, the teen She-Wolf of Maori and African American heritage

     

    A bit of background on this novel. It was submitted to Alloy Entertainment (Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl)  a  few years ago and Alloy passed on it, but I always thought having a vampire who rises to Marvin Gaye and loves to dance, and pairing him with a Maori/African American she-wolf was a bit different than the usual paranormal stories. Adding more characters of color, like Andre Santana (Hispanic werewolf) and Havoc Xian (Chinese Gargoyle) plus an assortment of others might work if it found an audience.

    And somehow, it has.

    The release date for THE STONE BOY had to be pushed to next week, so I do apologize for the delay.

    We’re doing location scouting for HEAVEN and trying to find the right dog(s) to play Myst.
