A New Flash Fiction Video from Sbattle

Posted on May 22, 2014 at 9:18pm 1 Comment

I know as authors we all need to have a book video to promote our work. I am working on an "Author Platform Video" to introduce potential readers to what I can do.  But I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I created this in PowerPoint.

All comments are welcomed.

Why Africa Must Go to the Moon

Posted on December 5, 2013 at 12:31am 0 Comments

There are many reasons why the nations of Africa should set aside their religious conflicts,  invite the African Diaspora to return home,  create a common currency and go to the Moon. India just launched a probe to Mars. The Chinese are planning a space station and an effort to put a base on…

Hi Stafford, thanks for stopping by.  As for having any art to show, I have art journal work I've done, but nothing to compare to the fantastic work here.  Maybe down the way I might be bold enough to place something up. Look forward to interacting with you on the site.:)

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.
