A Response to Avatar: Visit the Planet Revival



I have started my response to the movie: Avatar. I have created a short story called: Revival. The scenario starts out the same -- greedy humans invade peaceful people on beautiful, unspoiled planet. But I added a few land mines into the story. This is part one, I hope you enjoy it. Also, you can get a free copy of my E-book, " A Cup of Paradise" at the site.…

A Call to Write

I've noticed since the inauguration of President Obama an uptick in the

rhetoric and even veiled threats to the president and our country.

Fueled by talking heads like like Sean Hannity, Alan Keys and Rush

Limbaugh, as they argued that President Obama must be stopped at any

cost, it has progressed into the formation of a political party (the

Tea Party), who's sole purpose seems to be to "take our country back",

which sounds more like ralling cry for a coup than a… Continue

The Lost Prince

This story has its origins in my dreams. Let us hope it inspires the makings of a wonderful narative.







Night was fast approaching and I felt compelled to go outside. I think I lived alone and I do not know why I needed to go outside.



As I came out of the building I saw on my left two people, one atop a camel, robed completely in black. Only his dark eyes were visible. The other, in a dirty white Arab… Continue

Creating Your Own Book Trailer

The moment I responded to a comment about one of my book trailers, I knew I had to follow through and write about how to create your own. So I'm going to put it down recipe style and start with the things you need to make it happen.



Tools:

Movie editing software (Windows Movie Maker WMM, Wax, imovie [I think that's what the Apple version is called]). I list these options, because… Continue

The eBook

Over the weekend I finished work on the ebook version of my novel and submitted to Smashwords and Amazon. The Smashwords link is up (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/14829), but at the moment both sites have me in "pending" mode. I like Smashwords because I have the opportunity to register an ISBN number under my own publishing imprint!



The formal publication launch is set for Memorial Day. The eBook is priced at… Continue

A Pot of Creativity Looking For Someone To Manage It

Greetings,

This is a new concept to me, but in light of the last seven years of my life, I feel compelled to post this. I am a 38 year old author, musician, educator, entreprenuer with hundreds of creative concepts that I am positive would net millions of dollars in revenue for anyone willing to invest in me. I am not skilled in marketing myself or managing my creativity because it flows out of me so fast I don't have time to grab a hold of it.

I have written…

It's the truth that's stranger than fiction

I am over at my other favorite site, Blacks In Technology http://www.socialbit.net/home, in the forum a discussion is brewing about folks who don't believe we Blacks can be expert computer technicians and engineers, especially other Blacks. The image of the Black geek ie computer enthusiast and/or professional is hammered in mind and reality. I know we have made image strides in the movies but on the ground there seems to still be a disconnect of… Continue

My New Job as an Associate Producer. Next Stop: Hollywood

Greetings fellow film buffs. I can’t count the number of films I’ve watched over the years in which I’ve thought to myself, “hey that was a great film, but the ending just killed it”. (Yeah, I’m talking to you, M Night Shyamalan.) I’ve started this blog because I’ve just discovered a remedy to this problem. A friend of mine who has had her movies screened at prestigious film festivals such as Sundance and Cannes led me to www.imadeamovie.com. I am so…

SUPERHEROES AS EXPRESSED SPIRITUALITY.

I've always felt profound spiritual joy when experiencing the superhero ( fictional and REAL ) in society.
This isn't meant to offend anyones faith nor the institution of organized religion. Quite the contrary. Superheroes also are a celebration of the same values. They just do it a bit differently.
Speaking only for myself I become transcendent while encountering…

RENPET CHAPTER 3

.......Now he knew that she never meant him any harm and

that she held a passion for him that was both wild and

earnest. She closed her eyes slowly as if she was offering

him her life.

She kissed him softer and deeper than she did before.

His head got hot, he could feel his chest about to explode

and she picked up on it. She tore…

Question on Grad School Program of Neuroscience

Posted by AL Bey on November 19, 2017 at 2:33pm 0 Comments

Hello Peeps,

Currently I'm in the final stages of applying for a grad program at Michigan State called Literary Neuroscience. This program has had "general" internet info circulating for maybe only 7 years, with arguably a location of no more than 5 schools in the whole USA. After taking the GRE today and sending out my scores to these scores, I was curious in wondering, "Are there any predominantly/historically black schools that house programs with similar combined studies of literature and cognition?" Even though the term "literary neuroscience" is relatively new, I'm sure the concept isn't. As an old saying goes, "There is nothing new under the Sun." Plus, one of thee world's foremost conventional experts on Brain Surgery & Neuroscience is renown doctor/author, Ben Carson, also from Detroit, MI. If anyone has answers and/or feedback to this vital question, let me know. And even if I do end up in Michigan, East Lansing is likely to be somewhat of a post-gentrified Nu…

CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by KENNETH E JAMES on November 18, 2017 at 12:53pm 0 Comments

That's right i said it Challenge for the week if you are an Artist,Writer, whatever the case. If you are a writer do 10 Pages a day for the next week and prove it by Saturday the 25th. That is 70 pages by one week. Now here is the caveat you have to do it in the time frame of your normal day if you cant than try using an hour by hour schedule to see what you are doing that is wasting some time. Nuff said we are all adults here we go!

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.
