1st Blog Post

The following is an excerpt from a story I'm writing called Obasi's Honor. Hope you enjoy it.

The artist is Gauntlet.

    

    Behind him lay the bodies he’d killed; it had been, at best, serendipity, and not skill.

    He would rather that it had been…

Sunny Days

Sesame Street announces its get rid of Bob McGrath(Bob), Emilio Delgado (Luis), and Roscoe Orman (Gordon). What the heck!!??!!
Oh well at least Roscoe's free for Willie Dynamite 2: Big Willie's Back in Action. But seriously, Willie Dynamite is one of the few movies about pimping with a heart and a strong message.

A Word From the Artist - on drawing and digitally painting eyes

For me, the most difficult parts of the body to draw are the face and the hands, which is why I generally do them last, and on separate sheets of paper. There is nothing worse than drawing a great body, and then ruining it with the face that does not come out right, or the hands, which might look funny. So I learned to make my light table my best friend in drawing, and to use models, models and more models. Not like, Victoria Secret…

Day Two at the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 with Jarvis Sheffield and the Black Science Fiction Society

Day Two of the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 was very informative. I got a chance to speak with a few more of the vendors. I also had the opportunity to talk to some of the people who organized the IndyCon. In addition being passionate about bringing artists together, all of the organizers are artists in their own right. We ended up discussing everything from graphic novels to video games to music.

Day One at the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 with Jarvis Sheffield and the Black Science Fiction Society

I recently attended the Urban Axis IndyCon 2 in Decatur, GA, over the weekend of July 23-24, 2016. Jarvis Sheffield, founder of the Black Science Fiction Society, presented me with this opportunity. I served as the moderator for the Black Science Fiction panel. (That panel was the first time I got to meet a Jedi – live in the flesh.)

300 Black Owned Business Advertising Challenge

So let's talk about "Building". We see the images and things that are portrayed about people of color in the mainstream media and the truth is we will have very little power to change them. But what we CAN do is build our own media outlets and tell our OWN stories. But that takes funding. Now JBN - Jericho…

A Word From The Author - Throw-away stories

I have what I call throw-away stories. These are stories that I never write down. They are sometimes complex or simple. I run through them in different ways, living in one character or another. But they are not full and complete stories, like the ones I share. They are not crystallized, like the ones I write down, but remain fluid, mutable. Sometimes I come up with the greatest ideas through them - and I might adapt it and write it down for another story. But these…

A Word From The Artist - About My Skill

My mother always says that I have natural talent as an artist. That's always nice to hear, but the truth is, that there is nothing natural about it.

I have, basically, two talents: writing, and the ability to learn anything. But even…

A Word From The Author - How I Come Up With Names

From Brii Richards:

 

Hello! The addition of a word from the author was a nice touch to your website. There's been something I've thought about ever since I started reading your books and am wondering if you might want to expand upon. The names of people, places and things in your books are all very unique and interesting. But aside from just names, you also have your characters commit the act of naming. What are the conventions that you have your characters abide by in naming.…

Book suggestions for a work endeavor

Yeah! I have something I'm trying to do for work. Kind of inspired by a forum topic about why black speculative fiction isn't popular. I started getting emails about it recently and it got my brain ticking.

At the large bookstore chain where I work, we do have a few shelves of African American fiction. But they're mostly urban fiction about gangs, or slave narratives. Nothing wrong with either, but my hypothesis is that  if you don't have a way of knowing that there's sci fi…

It's driving me nuts about folks and these multilevel marketing plans....(mini rant)

So I read this article about Herbalife and how they have had legal issues. For those of you who don't know, Herbalife is a company selling health products and nutrition supplements. They also are a Multi Level Marketing company.

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"

Posted by JC Holbrook on January 16, 2018 at 1:55pm 0 Comments

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.
