Author’s Update 5.1.18

It’s the first Tuesday of the month! Time for an Author’s Update:

Okay I totally know it’s Thursday! I’m late with this update because:

I have been working feverishly hard on my new Academy, Authors At Last. It’s designed to give training to authors at any level of their career, and especially if you’re just getting started or trying to finish a manuscript.

The first Masterclass will be called Write Yourself Free, and I’m going to give a free webinar to kick it off. That will be announced very soon.

 

Thank you all for your support, and watch this space for updates. They are released on the first Tuesday of every month. Most of the time.😁

Author’s Update 4.3.18

It’s the first Tuesday of the month! Time for an Author’s Update:

I’m just writing, writing, writing. I’m working on the sequels to my Wayward Pines book, Survival. Sequels to my Lucifer, Soldiers, Serpents and Sin book.

My Diary of a Smart Black Kid: Sixth Grade book is connecting with audiences; I hope to continue to get more speaking engagements so I can emphasize the themes of the book. Dealing with bullying, self-acceptance, making good decisions at the right time in your life, and self-development.

They thought the war with Lucifer was over. They found out it was just beginning.

With Soldiers and Serpents, role-players get to choose their own destiny.

Skokie, IL. – January 25, 2017 – Your fate is up to you. You are dealing with the aftermath of Lucifer’s attack on Heaven. You have a choice to use lightside powers or darkside powers to accomplish all your missions. But beware….if you go too dark, you can’t go back.

Players get to experience the intense struggles as their favorite characters from Lucifer: Soldiers, Serpents and Sin Book 1. It’s all about choosing who you are and who you want to be. You have a Choir to help you out, you have powers, weapons, and a mission, but how you complete that mission is up to you. Every time.

In this fun and intense game, the unusual mechanics involved mean that players are no longer at the mercy of the roll of the die, or the gamesmaster. In this beta version, players will get to choose from one of four types of angels: Seraphim, Cherubim, Gladiator, and Grigori. Whether or not each player ends up on the side of light remains to be seen.

Click HERE to download the Beta version.
