Afrofuturism is on the Radar once again, and this time we explore its relationship to Cyberpunk, a related Science Fiction genre.

Proofreading is a necessity for any writer.
And you should proof to the best of your (and the Internet’s) ability before you send it to anyone else to read. Even your Beta readers or your Mom. They may not say anything but they’ll notice.
What is proofreading? It’s checking the basics. Are the words spelled correctly? Is it the right version on the word (to, too, two for example). Has a word been left out of a sentence?
Maybe you used a word…Continue

Pick up a copy of Where the Monsters are here. I will let the review speak for itself:
By Keith Milstead
Gerald Dean Rice’s novelette WHERE THE MONSTERS ARE so befuddled me the first time I read it that I believed I should read it again. Not to say it was anything but genius, it…

Is it the same for you? I was remembering the dude called "Face" in "The A Team". Total character immersion was his stick and I wondered if he was going to come out of it. He would even select a character before the mission started which seemed a psychic choosing and necessary down the line.
Although I don't do character design, I do put myself in the room when I am imagining a house design or a piece of art. It seems essential to be in that "space" to explore the spiritual…Continue

So you want to write comics! Well Austin Comic Con had a panel on that with Daniel O'Neil (Batman; Iron Man), Danny Fingeroth (Spiderman; Darkhawk), and Paul Benjamin (Pantheon High; Spiderman). So what did these veterans have to say about delving into comic book writing?
1. Do not be afraid to add details to your characters that may seems unimportant, especially if it adds to the plot because it shows how important that detail is to the character

One of the more interesting panels that I attended involved Jus Riddick, an actor, independent director, writer, and producer from Atlanta (now in L.A.) who is known for his feature length film Only in L.A. He provided some interesting tidbits for budding filmmakers who wanted to create but did not have the budget to do so! Here is what I gathered from the short panel:
1. Most important positions on screen to have apart from actors, writers, and director…Continue

Comic Con can be a mind bender in itself, with rows upon rows of artists, promoters, writers, creatives, and more! Not to mention the programming that is non-stop. I was lucky enough to be invited to listen to Donald Lanouette, a Canadian entrepreneur that has been working in the comic book industry for a long time. His most recent incarnation is as the founder of UCreateComics, an online platform that hopes to help writers and artists find an opportunity to build, grow, and promote their…Continue

Villains make or break any story especially those in the Sci-fi, Fantasy and Horror genres. The old adage of 'The Hero is only as strong as their Villain' is gospel when writing your stories.
In my latest work 'Dark God's Gift', stories are spawned from the creation of an implacable…
