California Style Black-eyed Peas recipe

This is from my little cookbook. California Style Black-eyed PeasBeing a diverse, multi-ethnic, multi-racial family, we've added many traditions to our holiday celebrations. Black-eyed peas are a traditional African-American dish, served on New Year’s Day. We also serve black-eyed peas, along with tamales, on Christmas Day, right next to the turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. My recipe is a bit different than the traditional recipe. I haven't had any complaints about it…See More

Make it easy on your formatter

Posted on April 10, 2015 at 1:33pm 0 Comments

When you start to write your manuscript, make it easy for the formatter. Start off by changing your paragraph format (see picture) so your indents are automatically set at 0.50. No tabs, no 5 spaces to indent.

Also, no spaces between paragraphs, it's one or the other. Indented paragraphs OR block paragraphs with a space between. Not both.

Trust me, your formatter will bless you for this.…

My short story that introduces Bitter

Posted on January 3, 2015 at 12:30pm 1 Comment

I wrote this short story for an anthology. Happily, it was turned down, because now it's going to be the free introduction to my character and the longer story (dare I think novel?) that I'm working on right now.

So, I'm going to share the whole story with you. I hope you like it.

Getting your children's/middle school/YA books in school libraries

Posted on June 7, 2014 at 10:30am 3 Comments

I posted this information on Facebook during a discussion in the Reading in Black group, but I should share it with you all.

My sister is a middle school science teacher, so she filled me in on this and HIGHLY recommended that you authors who are writing children, teen or YA books submit your books, or have the teachers who are using your books in the classroom request that your books have quizzes developed and added to the Accelerated Reading Program AND Scholastic Reading…

Thanks Ruth.

The site has rules and I can't have chaos, arguments and foolishness going on.

What bothers me is I hate to be lied on. That girl knew exactly what she was doing by posting that 3 separate times over there. When I asked people to cut it out the others did. The 3 that got deleted kept mess going for 3 days. This bus is moving in positive directions, if you not going where we’re going, you need to get off. I'm glad your going where we are going.

Hey thanks! I just checked out the site! Wow...didn't think anybody but me read ZELDE M'TANA!
Yea if you're going to be kind enough to reference my book I think a warning for violence and harsh language is needed. But I'm not sure of the age range. 18+ to be sure!

The Fifth Season is coming to TV!

Posted by Stephen Alexander on August 17, 2017 at 5:48am 0 Comments

N.K. Jemisin’s ‘The Fifth Season’ Book To Be Developed As TV Series At TNT!

Now Mr. Hayashi can't complain about there being no other famous black creatives than Delany and Butler. 

http://deadline.com/2017/08/nk-jemisin-the-fifth-season-book-developed-tv-series-tnt-1202150542/

Now who says diversity doesn't sell?! If some yesteryear agent says that, throw this article in their face and say "Are you sure? Now get me TNT's president and NO I won't hold!" 

Of course, this assumes TNT won't screw this up like they did the TFTC revival.

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.
