I was so excited when I saw this poster, because I thought WOLVES would be a weekly TV series starring Jason Momoa.
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).
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.
Andre Santana gets his own ebook:

Because Andre Santana is a recurring character in several other books (he’s in Razher and Confessions of a Shapeshifter. He’s also got a cameo in Razher, Rise of the Gargoyles) I’d always planned to have a spin off book for Andre AKA Dre AKA Cadaver Dawg, and now I’ve completed the cover.
Some other books featuring males:
The following New Adult Ebook Excerpts are free for downloading this weekend (Saturday May 10th and Sunday May 11th).
Here’s your chance to read about the volatile bad boy Derek Keane from the NA contemporary The Stone Boy:
JUKEBOX has The Burr Brothers, Eli and Johnny, two rockabilly teens who switch musical genres to perform as soul men, and along with the female classmate they both love, all three make history in the process.
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:
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
I’ve finally gotten closer to a cover I like:
I love creating covers and promos. I learned Photoshop (my daughter was so patient with me 🙂 ) 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.
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:
Meet The Reckoning Crew, Razher’s friends who play a bigger role in the sequel:
Damalia the Enchantress is the cousin of Malia the Witchling:
Murder. Betrayal. Fang envy. Even though the sequel to Razher has been pushed back until November, part two is on its way.
I’ll get a few excerpts up as soon as I can. There will also be an excerpt of the New Adult romantic suspense novella Before I Let Go up shortly:
Still tweaking The Stone Boy. I didn’t get a chance to devote as much time to editing as I’d wanted. My 9 to 5 was quite hectic this week.
More promos for upcoming books:
We’ve narrowed the title down for the sequel to RAZHER. So far, Razher Rise of the Gargoyles got the most votes.
Chaos and Ram are twins. Karnage is the oldest brother, while Havoc is the youngest. Following up on the betrayal in the first novel RAZHER, the Gargoyles and their mythology play a major part in the sequel.
I hope to have an excerpt up this week. The Stone Boy will be released this week. A short excerpt can be read here, and there’s a longer sneak peek version on Amazon, which includes an excerpt of the paranormal romance FURIES Continue reading →
This BUZZFEED article is a must read! Asian men need more representation, not just on film, but in books:
BOYS ‘N LOVE AND MAGIC has Malia Toussaint paired with Corey Yune.
In VALKYRIE JONES, Valencia Perez is paired with Kai Ioki:

What I’m up to: Editing
How I pace myself: Creating digital art to use as book promos
These are the main male leads in FURIES:
An excerpt from Malia the Witchling’s ebook can be found here
See the girl in the foreground, the one in front? That’s how I felt yesterday:
Last night I worked on channeling those emotions into a new YA series. ‘Cause that’s what I usually do when I’m upset. I try to be creative.
I even made up a tag line: The Damned don’t cry, they just get even
Anyway, I’ve written about five chapters so far. The girls on the cover are sisters. I’m thinking of releasing it as a serial, because there are too many other books that are ahead of this one ready for release. That’s about all I’ll say for now, except WRITE ON.
The WSC Book Sampler is almost complete. I think the change to this mock up cover will be a different background. But I’m also going to write a blog post to give easy to follow instructions on how an author/cover creator can use a few programs like Paint.net (which is free) or even Adobe Elements (not free, but not costly) to make their own cover designs.
