Taste: Chapter One (Warning: Steamy Content)

1

Incident in Vine City



It was early evening as the sunset wrapped its rays around the anxious women. Deepest hues of ebony, coffee, and chestnut blurred with the golden sunlight seeping through the translucent clouds above. Vine City, coveted for its unique beauty, brimmed with a mischievous allure while the waters of the Mer Sea lightly kissed the surrounding shore. From above, the small metropolis was a gathering of peaks stabbing unapologetically at the sky in declaration of… Continue

Taste: The Prologue

Prologue



Beneath a sweltering noonday sun, the prickling sensation in her fingertips began to spread. Profuse sweating and violent hallucinations followed as the world around her swirled in the purplish haze of a narcotic high. Time slid to a sluggish halt as she closed her eyes, helplessly watching the blinding blue dance with screaming red behind her eyelids. Phase One of the shape-shift brought about a hurt so intense that all thought quickly became a dizzying distortion of… Continue

Into Africa

Back in the day, when I was calling myself “educating” people about Africa’s place in folklore and mythology, I wrote an article about the continent’s unknown beasts and mythical beings for Dragon magazine. Dragon was published by the people who were behind the renowned Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. I never was a gamer myself, but the article nonetheless had some influence. It was published in the June 1987 issue of Dragon, under the title “Out of Africa.” But I think “Into Africa”… Continue

Winter Ghost

WINTER GHOST

All I know of her is her voice, it quietly whispers through the blowing snow, which still falls. Her voice, it quietly calls for help, and cries in pain, drew me from my path and onto this chase through the snow filled streets of Mt. Airy. She always seems to be near, around the corner, behind that fence, just over that hill, but I never draw close enough to find her, never come close enough to see her.

*help*

Again I hear her voice and I twist in the piling snow, my… Continue

A Summary of first book Pure Blood- followed by an Excerpt

A great division occurred after the creation of the human species. The first division happened when Lucifer, Prince of the Morning chose to defy creation and the Celestial Hierarchy. The second occurred when the Order of the Watchers, chosen to assist the human species defied the rules and engaged with them. The Celestial Hierarchy was made up of several orders, each with different status, positions and task. One of the Orders was the Powers, the Guardians of Universal and Cosmic… Continue

Excerpt from a novel I'm currently working on, tentatively titled Visitors to NeoAfrica.

“Those ships are huge,” Von Dellums, Director of Fleet Intelligence voiced in a subdued tone. “How much do you think they mass?” He turned to look up at the very tall man standing beside him.

Robert Mensah, Chief Advisor to the President of the NeoAfrican Federation blew out a thoughtful breath. “Hmmm. I’d say they’re twice the size of a Sofa Class Assault Cruiser. How well armed they are remains to be seen.”

Both men were in a surveillance room inside the Command Complex, a military… Continue

An excerpt from my upcoming book, Twilight.

I stared out the forward drop pod window as the planet below expanded from a curvature cutting across our view to a dark, rugged blot. The nearer our descent the closer that blot revealed discernible surface features: mountains, trees, bodies of water, blast craters; swathes of land scoured black by thermal bombardment. Much of those areas encompassed space where population centers once existed.

I soaked in the grim scene, tallying the numbers of dead Vingin in my mind. Reverse thrusts… Continue

Earth Squadron Action Figure Delayed 2 Weeks.

Unfortunately, The action figure prototype which was sculpted in India is being delayed for two weeks. There was an error in shipping which will push the arrival date back 2 weeks.

Next month we begin development of the enemy characters and then our first female character. This project is a bit ambitious but I am… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 4

Why couldn’t it be contained? Why could we not control it? The purpose of the virus seemed so clear to me, yet the way it evolved from host to host made it so complex. We were such fools to think that we could control such an intense for of nature. I was such a fool to think that I could escape fates cruel joke. I was so selfish to allow things to get this far yet blame everyone else for my families fate.

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 3

If any of my journals are being read, I imagine that I am either dead or under investigation by the United States government as well as many others. I cannot say that the leaving of these journals is any attempt to clear myself of any wrong doing in this specific incident. Rather these journals are my attempt to shed light on a matter that may very well cost the entire population of the world their lives. I am just as responsible if not more so than the virus for the deaths of so many people,… Continue

Sarah Caullings Private Journal 2

So much death. So many good innocent people now lost because of our misguided actions. This was never meant to cause such a tragedy, but it shall go down in history as the single most destructive event in the history of man. Maybe this is how Judgment Day was supposed to come. Maybe this is the will of God that we have acted out. Man against man, in a battle for supremacy; Darwin's survival of the fittest at its most extreme. No….. this is no biblical prophecy. We get no pass from the death… Continue

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.
