Wind Follower


http://www.juno-books.com/windfollower.html
A fourth tribe has come to the land of the three tribes; the light-skinned newcomers are fated to change the tribes' way of life and religion. Satha, a dark-skinned woman from a poor Theseni clan, and Loic, her wealthy young Doreni husband, are too busy forging their new life together to pay much heed. But when Satha is dishonored and Loic must avenge her, they find themselves drawn into a cultural battle. Kidnapped and enslaved, Satha strives to retain her autonomy. Loic struggles against the Arkhai, spirits who fear his his quest will lead him to the true god whose place they have usurped. With the Creator's aid there remains hope they will be reunited and find their mutual destiny, even if it means losing the love and respect of their comrades, families, clans, and tribes.

I also have a Bible study up at lulu: "Basics in Bible Study"

Thanks for sharing the link to Monique Henry-Hudson's work. Somehow I couldn't follow the e-mail link back to the animators group but glad I looked you up directly on the membership list. Just sent a connection request and will be checking out your work :)

 

Going to connect with her as well. Please take a look at my portfolio as well when you get a minute.

Hello, I want to thank you for posting the list of sci-fi and fantasy writers list on amazon.com where I've discovered many writers that are ironically on this site! I had no idea so many authors such as yourself existed. A few months ago I was drawn to Wind Follower because of the beautiful cover and picked it up on amazon. I have not yet read it but it is definitely on my to do list!

Carole,
I remember seeing your book cover at a book event last year (I love the design). I think it might have been BEA. Charles Saunders introduced me to this site. Who knew that I would find you here? I love the whole Wind Follower concept! I want to make it a point to get it on my June reading list. My literary non-profit is working with the Omaha Public Library Foundation on a fundraising project that will highlight African-American speculative fiction authors. I would definitely like to talk to you to see if you are interested. Participation is simple, free and doesn't require attendance. I hope to talk to you soon.

3D printing the future

Posted by ARCELIUS SCOTT on August 15, 2018 at 11:30am 0 Comments

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/114240903/drawns-3d-printed-range-of-design-furniture?ref=discovery&ref=discovery&term=3d%20printed

As of today Spacefans, the link above shows my new goal for my future in the 3D printing industry. 3D print farms are on the agenda for us to build our own, create our own, and own our own manufacturing methods and processes. After we meet the goal of 3D print farms, we should most definitely set our sights on using industrial articulating robots to "scale up" the manufacturing capability within the community.

A robot can cost anywhere between $25,000 and $100,000 but the industrious entrepreneur should be able to find one on the lower end of the spectrum. I'm not here to sell robots, just here to share vision with…

Finding your favorite indie Black Age products?

Posted by Turtel Onli on August 14, 2018 at 7:52am 1 Comment

At a time when the indie Black Age of Comics movement is now nation wide with indie conventions in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco, a question emerges.  Where do you find a dedicated spinning rack of indie produced / published Black Age products?  Hmmmm?  No where except Chicago at the Du Sable Museum and the urban internet cafe' Copy Cat.  In each of the other markets listed, no rack.  Not even where there is a Black owned comic book store.  The internet alone will not reach the under served market.

This is a great opportunity & challenge foe legal honest industrious folks.  To market and distribute the Black Age of Comics indie products.

OK..... you say were the regular stores contacted?  Of course. ONLI STUDIOS even offered them spinning racks.  They…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
