"Epitomizing the Black Panther"

Before I go into my topic I want to weigh in on the animated series. After viewing the first four episodes I want to say job more than well done. Everything about it feels right. The theme music is excellent, the casting is superb and to my surprise the animation works as it uniquely stylizes the Panther. Reggie your dialogue works better in the cartoon than in the comic. The characterizations and guest appearances were well chosen (especially replacing the Rhino with Juggernaut). A final note,… Continue

Alina and the Ice Jewel (The Meeting at Engrund)

Queen Thaelea walked on the holcus mollis l, her feet barely leaving a mark on it. The flowers seemed to smile at her presence and sing at her touch."My children," she purred, her wondrously enchanting voice drawing the butterflies to her. She knew them all by name, even though their beautiful lives were fleeting. For that moment, she forgot her sorrow, her sadness at the loss of a lifelong friend.



She walked to where she had left her oaken staff, its upper third studded with… Continue

Alina and the Ice Jewel (The passing of the Grand Sorcerer)

"I have waited for so long, and now it seems that my mortality will be my undoing." the man, dressed only in a white bed garment said, his voice still strong even in his last hour. The little girl, hardly ten years old, standing next to his bed shook her head, while tears streamed down her pale cheeks. "It is true, my child. I shall go to the Wonderlands upon my passing, but it shall not be by the Celestial Chariot."

Amars, Grand sorcerer of Sentilla, stretched out his feeble shaking hand… Continue

Alina and the Ice Jewel (Intoduction)

In the days preceding the coming of the Comet, Alina had taken possession of the coveted 'Ice that Never Thaws'. Frozen at the heart of the forever cold pendant was believed to be an inter-dimensional pixie.



For the wearer, the comet was their chariot to a world of magic and wonder that would never be seen by those who did not possess it.



She walked the enchanted woods of Tharkin alone, her dark-chocolate complexion glowing a dark blue in the misty moonlight, which made… Continue

Skin Magic - Part I



“Skin Magic”

Djeli

December 2009



Makami stumbled, almost falling. The orange-colored cat he had nearly run over went still, the hair on its back raising. Its eyes reflected in the night, seeming to ask what bit of chance had caused their paths to cross in the sand-ridden backstreets of this small town, which only rats and shadows should have called home.



The answer came at the sound of heavy footsteps from… Continue

Internet Theft

After months of self-promotion I finally have confirmation that the word is out about my novel. I discovered this after checking my website statistics. The hits are really picking up all over the world and right here in the States. Egypt, Europe, Sudan, Australia, Thailand, Belgium—the list goes on and I couldn’t be happier. However…with this new internet publicity I am already encountering internet theft. Just when I was starting to feel confident in my progress, I discovered that people are… Continue

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.
