ARRRGH!

Not getting ANY interest from Agents from my query letter. Any hints to help me improve it or should I just break down and rewrite the 1st chapter of my book?



Query:



I’ve been a fan of Sci-Fi and fantasy since before I could even read. For a young African American that meant watching and reading stories that didn’t include people who looked like me or who were from where I was from. Then as I got older it seemed as though the opposite began to happen with OVERLY Afro… Continue

SPACE: PART 1 (cross post)



I was asked to do this a little while ago- by a professional astronomer, no less- so, here it is.



Well. Okay. It wasn't a little while ago; it was months. And she didn't so much ask me as she did inspire me to promise, proactively, that I would. She really is an astronomer, though, and that is the crux. She is one of those people who actually does the thing that scribblers like me only dream about. Such promises made to such people must be fulfilled or,… Continue

Excerpt of a work in progress. Ra's Test

This is an excerpt at one of my attempts to crank out a story that has been bouncing around in my head. This actual excerpt will be included in a book of short stories that is almost complete. I'd appreciate any critique anyone is willing to offer. I've noticed many people here tend to lean towards the supportive veiwpoints. Those are great, but I'm looking for something more substantial if possible. At the least I hope you enjoy this tidbit.

LES TON TONS-- A work in progress: seeking funding for a "B" horror film.

"Les Ton Tons?"

"That used to be the name for the secret police. Taken from Voodoo Folklore; in mythology it was a

mischievous spirit that ate flesh." the nurse added authoritvely.

A delayed flight. Two passengers with a dark secret. An emigree from an island mired in

poverty and superstition; combined with a disfunctional crew, struggling with problems of

their own. A Voodoo curse and the promise of fantastic wealth. These are but parts of the

backstory of death… Continue

The Magic of Stephen King's - The Eyes of the Dragon

I read my first Stephen King book when I was 9. I stayed up all night and nearly fell out of bed when I heard an errant car honk from outside because it was so creepy. I thought I had read all of the King stuff there was. Somehow I kept missing The Eyes of the Dragon. It's one of the rare out of print King books (although I just learned it will probably be re-released soon). It is not nearly as bone-chilling as his horror works but like the Dark Tower series, it is haunting and lovely. I… Continue

Don't You Hate It When You Have To Keep A Secret?

But I must. I found out this weekend at the BEA that there is a serious Sci fi/fantasy book series coming out next winter from a totally unexpected source. However, I was told that I had to keep the name of this Black writer under wraps.

. . . AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's killin' me!
I just can't wait to see the looks on all of your faces. This is going to be good.

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…

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.
