The Greatest is Now With Allah

Some people have a hard time understanding why I had so many black role models, like Mohammed Ali. It’s actually quite simple really; I was always an outsider. I was the ‘other kid’, the white kid that didn’t have the same interests, or religion, or interest in sports. My family never really had the money or the interest in keeping up with our neighbors and I always felt like people didn’t like me around them or their children. That feeling of alienation was something that black people lived with every day of their lives and their struggle to be accepted for who they were was something I could identify with a lot more than I did white culture in the 80’s. Everything I liked as a kid, stuff that people take for granted today, was considered ‘fringe’ and ‘weird’.
Mohammed Ali, Bruce Lee, Malcolm X, these were people I looked up to because they were NOT afraid of white people. Through their eyes, I could see the flaws in my own culture and was able to avoid feeling the way society wanted me to feel for not fitting in. I knew, because of men like them, that I was not the one with the problem, that I was not a kid that needed to be fixed, it was the system that needed to be fixed. Thanks to them, I am a wolf, not a sheep, and there is NO way you can ever say thank you for something like that. That is why I support black culture and why black lives matter to me; because their heroes were my heroes too.

ALI BOMAYE!

What’s Been Going On. .

I’ve been rather quiet lately, with minimal posts and no mention of any new books on the way. That is because I decided to let 2016 be a year where I relearn my craft. I am not as good as I want to be, either at writing or editing, and I felt it was time to step back and take a look at what it is I am doing. To be a writer, you have to write, so don’t worry the books are still moving along, just at a slower pace. It is just as important for a writer to actually READ books and this is what I’ve decided to do; to get back to reading stories that I enjoy, that will inspire me, that will show me other ways of telling stories so that I don’t get held back by my flaws. I want to improve the quality of work and in order to do that I need to read books by great authors. I’ve been reading the Game of Thrones series by George RR Martin, as well as the mind-boggling RAMA books by Arthur C. Clarke (and Gentry Lee).

Sometimes you just have to take a break from your own passions so that the fires can cool a little. You never let the flame go out, but you turn down the heat a bit to let it simmer. I want to get better and reading books by people who are truly gifted at the craft is a sure way to do that.

I am currently working on SPIRA as well as a few shorter books. Right now I can’t seem to find the inspiration to do another Legion book, which I apologize for. Just not sure what I have to say as far as superhero stuff goes.
LONDON UNDEAD has been polished up a bit, there is still half the book to go, but be sure you download the latest version and update your edition on your digital devices so you can have the newest edition without some of those glaring mistakes.

Thank you everyone for all the support and hopefully I will have something good for you next year. In the meantime, I will try to keep the blog interesting with more frequent posts.

If Bond can wipe out his bankroll, The Number will likely be “retired” by his masters, a mysterious organization known only as GHOST. But what if the cards won’t cooperate? After a brutal night at the gaming tables, Bond soon finds himself dodging would-be assassins, fighting off brutal torturers, and going all-in to save the life of his beautiful human counterpart, Vesper Lynd.

In this 21st century mash-up of Britain’s greatest secret agent, you are introduced to a whole new world of shadowy espionage, blood-drinking spies and ancient, unspeakable evil.

Also, I’ve already uploaded the corrected LONDON UNDEAD, Chapter 1 & 2. If you want to update your Kindle you should have that available now. It might take a while to get through all the chapters and fix them but when I do I will be doing another free book giveaway.

My Apologies For London Undead

Tags

, ,

I’ve been giving away copies of London Undead all week and I finally got a print copy for myself. I was horrified to discover numerous typos on the first page. I was certain I did a thorough job but apparently I did not.
So I apologize for the mistakes and I am working to fix them now. A new updated version of the book will be updated to Kindle, so if you have a digital copy be sure to update to get the new version. If the typos ruined the experience of the book for you, send me an e-mail with a receipt that you paid for the book and I will refund it for you, or I can mail you a pdf of this book when it is corrected or any of my other books.
In my rush to release the book on Halloween, it was not up to the standards I have set for myself. I apologize to everyone who has the book for letting LU be released in this state.
The first wave of corrections were uploaded today. Hopefully this won’t take too long and the print version should NOT have the errors. I’m sure something will still slip through but I am committed to doing the best job I can editing this book.
Thanks to everyone for the support, I am sorry  I let you guys down.

March Madness! Free Books!

Tags

, , , ,

From Monday March 14th until Friday March 18th, the week of March Break, I will be giving away some digital books. The following titles will be free the entire week:

The Corrupter: 

The future.

From the first moment Oberon O’baron laid eyes on the robot, he was in love. With just a glance the petite artificial girl set his heart aflame, sending him into an obsessive frenzy. As the old-fashioned Englishman struggles with his new found passion, he is led into a world of political agendas, futuristic vice and sexual frustration. Oberon is obsessive, cowardly, self-loathing and weak but his mind is sharp and his dedication unwavering. All the pleasures he had denied himself, all that he had missed out on could be reclaimed. All he needs is HER.

The Corrupter is a science fiction tale of obsession, set in a world where everyone is watched and nothing is private.

London Undead:

A gypsy curse has spread across Transylvania, killing the population and turning them into hungry, walking corpses. Fleeing to London, Dracula soon discovers the curse has followed him.

Richard Evans is the writer behind the books from Raven Entertainment Studio. This will be the first book made exclusively for Inkshares.com .

We apologize for the lack of video. We are a superstitious lot who believe those things steal your soul.

EMPEROR was originally conceived as a comicbook series. The core concept revolves around a world of superheroes exploring the wonders of space. Imagine if the Marvel universe merged with Star Wars, for example.

Emperor Der Verge watched his world fall to alien invaders. After destroying the alien home world, he took Earth’s survivor’s aboard a space ship and sought out new worlds to conquer. What the all-powerful Emperor does not know is that there is a multiverse of danger out there and a new threat has arisen. After 500 years of conquest, the former superhero turned SuperGod will come face to face with a horror greater than even he could imagine.

This book is also part of their Space Opera contest, the winner of which gets published!

Inkshares: Who They Are

Tags

, , , , ,

I have a new project in the works through a company called Inkshares. Many of you may not have heard of this company, so I am posting their FAQ here.

Question: What is Inkshares?

We’re a book publisher that has readers, not agents or editors, decide what we publish. We publish any work that successfully hits a pre-order threshold on our platform. By “publish” we mean that we edit, design, print, distribute, and market books. You can find our funded books here. 

Question: How does it work?

Our process is simple: authors pitch, readers pre-order, and we publish. Any author can submit a proposal for a book. Once the project goes live, readers support the project by pre-ordering copies of the book. Once the 750 pre-order goal is hit, we start publishing: we assign authors an editor, a designer, and we handle all aspects of printing, distribution, and marketing once the manuscript is finished.

Question: What is the 250 pre-order goal?

At 250 pre-orders a project on Inkshares qualifies for the Quill collection, if the author so chooses. This includes an ISBN, light editing, limited distribution (including physical and digital on Amazon), and signed print-on-demand copies to all backers. If an author chooses Quill, they earn 50% royalties on all orders made after the 250 pre-order goal. At the 750 pre-order goal, the publishing process is the same as at any traditional publisher, including full editorial services, design, an offset print run, marketing, and distribution into bookstores nationwide.

You can check out the pitch for my book EMPEROR here: https://www.inkshares.com/books/emperor

If you already follow my work here, just go to the link and click follow there. If I can get all my followers on Facebook and WordPress to follow the link, I can easily reach the minimum required to get published. It’s all in your hands now, friends!
