On Our Way to the BEA (Book Expo America)!

This will be the first year we are exhibiting. Booth 2142 - somebody play that number! It's been hectic, but I think we will get through. We will be introducing our initial catalog for 2009 - four books. We will be blogging, twittering (!?), and video interviewing all weekend. Check us out daily for fresh news. We will also be displaying the works and promotional materials of several members - so if you are in the tri-state area, come out and support your fellow members:

What's really going on?

I guess i just feel like venting. I know when I was a kid in the 90's, the generation before us was probably befuddled and bewildered with our fashions and music, and probably our attitudes too. But for the life of me, I can't understand the the downward spiral that this generation depicts. These damn kids don't seem to gravitate towards anything positive or sensible. Damn, I mean we had NWA and a lot of so-called "negative" role models, but in actuality the entertainment icons of that time… Continue

How Dark Is Too Dark?

When I first sat down to draft the concept that would develop into my current project, my goal was to illustrate some of the baser emotions I saw within myself. In doing so, I created a character that, at best, was uncaring and completely sociopathic. It wasn't long before I realized the character was so repugnant, that no matter how well I wrote the story, readers would never accept her as anything other than an antagonist.



So... I was left with the task of reconstruction. Over the… Continue

Amille Gets a Baby -- Ironics Story from Last Month!

Okay so, here's the short I wrote about the final major character in the Ironics story - Amille. It's longer than the others but oddly, it is the least developed. In total there are five viewpoint characters - Ronnie (here and in the initial Irony blog post), Garren ("human" from post 2), Noe (the Ironic smuggler/lover in post 2), Amille and the baby, who is still nameless here. One of them is the "villian" of the collage of stories. I have decided to… Continue

East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (2009)

Just came back from Philly, from attending the only Black comic book convention in the US. It was awesome! Lions.12 did really good. I brought 40 comics with me and came back with five.

And I also got to meet Reggie Byers creator of Kidz of the King. Isay the greatest highlight if the trip was getting to minister to a boy… Continue

Unamused with My Muse

So, I've committed myself to writing fiction everyday just like I write do my research work everyday. And in spite of all the advice I've read and been given about daily writing and how rewarding writing everyday used to be for me --- I am uninspired. Well, that's not exactly right. I'll explain.



I have lots of ideas. Don't we all? Three of which I have been picking over for the last few years. I have posted some of the Ironics stories here but there are two other stories - one a… Continue

This is plain and simply awesome...

Here is my brother Emezie's latest animation. It is by far my favorite to date. It is titled Rock Opera and I have no idea what inspired him to create this particular twisted, imaginative, animated tale. It’s deep.



The story, the art, the music are all his own and they are all absolutely awesome- and I'd say that even if he weren’t my brother.…

The length of belief.

This is my first blog. And I plan to keep it brief. Ever since I heard this question, I've wondered what peoples answer would be regarding it. 'Can I walk a righteous path holding a beer?' Paradoxical in nature. But don't let that get in the way of how intriguing a question it is. I'd love to know peoples answer on the matter.

The Tauntaun pulled up short as it reached the crest of this particular snowy hill. Luke reached down and patted the great beast’s neck in comfort.

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

Call for abstracts for "Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels"

CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

by Brian Yates

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

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.
