Check out my 2nd interview of 2018 with Jim McLeod, owner of Ginger Nuts Of Horror, UK’s number one independent horror review website. Here, I talk about my writing process, my influences, the anthology Black Magic Woman and what I’m working on next, and much more! Link is here. Enjoy!:
I’m beyond speechless. The one and only Anne Rice gave a huge shoutout and raved about my latest anthology!!! If you haven’t gotten the chance to check out Black Magic Woman on Amazon Kindle which is available for $4.99 yet…you need to. Anne Rice approves 😊
Shooting pain from her lower back and stomach almost made Michelle scream in agony. This agony was something she had never felt before during her experience in taking birth control. As she ran her hand across her swollen belly, it no longer resembled a stomach to her, but more as if swallowed a bag of hot rocks and her insides were burning. Please just one drop, that’s all I ask for. Just one drop. She begged and pleaded that something would happen, anything. But now, as her breathing slowed and the room felt less closed in, the pain still lingered. If she didn’t know better, she could’ve sworn that her stomach was forming a life of its own. It can’t be…there’s no way, it’s just my eyes. Nothing more.

What a way to kick off 2018!! My newest story titled “Alternative” will be featured in an anthology titled “Black Magic Women”, with fellow author Sumiko Saulson. The story is about a new birth control pill that has some interesting side effects. I can’t be more excited to be a part of such a great anthology with other fellow black women representing black women and horror fiction…also a little compensation never hurts 😊. Release date is Feb.15th. More details soon.
Perfect Monday motivation
The alarm goes off. You cry a little bit inside. You don’t want to get out of bed. Not again. Not this. Anything but this.
You want to go back to sleep, back to the comfortable warmth of dreams that make sense only to you.
But you do get up. You have to.
Unfortunately, you left a part of yourself wrapped in the blanket…
You walk around like a zombie. You get angry over minor things. People’s only purpose is to annoy you.
Why does it have to be this hard?
Can’t you just stay in bed all day and watch funny YouTube videos?
This is how your whole life flies by you.
Most people never wake up.
They never fully understand that here and now is all we ever get.
Step outside your comfort zone. Get outside your head. Welcome the grind.
Here and now is where you make…

I can honestly say this year has been good to me. Kicked off my writing with a couple of publications, a novel currently in progress, ending my school semester with an A, and a pretty rad interview with a blog feature alongside a book feature that’s going to kick off my 2018. 😊 So goodbye 2017, can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring. Love and light. Happy New Year!! 😘
I’m pleased to announce my latest writing interview with the lovely, amazing, and super talented writer Sumiko Saulson! We discuss my latest venture into writing a novel titled, “Decency Defiled” and the short story it’s based off of, how I got started writing horror, and myself being featured in the “100 Black Women in Horror” list!! I can honestly say my smile hasn’t been bigger! What a great ending to 2017 so far 🙂

They say you have to practice your signature until it becomes an autograph…and apparently that is exactly what happened today. Thanks to my boss I had signed my first autograph for my book!! If you haven’t checked out Rejected For Content 6: Workplace Relations featuring my story Decency Defiled yet well….you should..it’s pretty gnarly. I’m honestly humbled that this has happened, thank you so much for your support and I can promise that this is only the beginning :).
