As always, I wanted to challenge myself and try something different, so vibe with me on this ?
Although I’m always down for great dialogue (I think I’m pretty comfortable writing dialogue), I prefer writing descriptions in my stories. I find that descriptions anchor readers in a scene and makes them see what the writer sees, offering a damn good mind movie.
It’s a preference and we as writers are all different. But I wanted to see if I could carry the fire of a story with more dialogue than usual so… I came up with this story concept inspired by this Reese Royce photo… I LOVE his drawings as I’m sure you’ve realized.
Anyway, in the dawn of FaceTime and Skype, I wanted to force my characters to use their words and their imaginations ?.
Wanna read about it?? Let me know what you think!
Title: Incoming Call
I released a subscriber only story this morning to BK Insiders and since it’s #teasertuesday I figured I’d share the first few pages. Check it out and if you want to keep reading, join the club ?
Title: An Unexpected Love: Nubia and Naazir’s Brooklyn Love Story
Back with another one but this one is a little different from the others. I tried a different writing style and technique. I wanted to challenge myself, switching between past and present, using the same words but in different ways to move the story along without losing you as the reader. I like to use these short stories as a way to train my writing muscle… a.k.a. my brain lol. Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think. As always, this is explicit so read if you ’bout it ?.
Title: LoveKilla (Not Another Love Story)
It’s been 2-years since I self-published my first story on Amazon, No Fraternizing, PT. 1. This story was never supposed to be a series. It was supposed to be a short novella that brought readers into a different world of characters with a different story concept.
When I saw this drawing, this story just poured out of me. Wrote it in two hours using the Office OneNote app on my iphone in a Starbucks. As always, it’s explicit and may make the shy reader or the strict idealist uncomfortable.
Meh. Be bad with me, and read it anyway ?.
Let me know what you think!
It’s that time again! I’ve started writing a new novella, and this is just not any ol’ novella. It’s a book where I’m writing about two of my favorite characters… Melodee and Amir. I fell in love with these two during the planning and writing process. Now, I love all my characters as I’ve said before but there’s something about the evolution of Amir and Melodee’s love that I admire the most. So, after two months of outlining, researching, blah, blah, blah… I’ve started writing it and I’m more than halfway through it.
When I first wrote this blog post, it was during the outlining phase of the story. Since then, I’m close to finish… yesss! The words have been flowing these past few days and I’ve been surprising myself at how far I’m getting with this work. And trust me, I’m not breezing through it. I’ve been taking my slow ass time. This is what’s baffling. So, I wanted to share what I’m doing hoping it can help another writer who may need tips on getting to their “end.”
Via social media like Facebook and Instagram, if you’re following me, you’ve noticed the hashtag I’ve got going, #MakingMrAndMrsJones. I wanted to try something new and to bring you guys along for the ride of creating this novella. A behind-the-scenes glimpse at what’s happening. This will also help keep me motivated and held accountable to finish this baby of mine.
For the readers, I think it will be fun for you to see a book come to life and evolve from nothing into something. And for my fellow writers, you’ll find the BTS (behind-the scenes) stuff resourceful… or at least that’s what I hope.
So, how am I doing it?
In just ONE MONTH, part two to my drama series, Love, Hate, & Revenge will be available for download! This series is truly one of a kind, and as always I’ve made sure not to hold back. Be prepared for a sexy and jaw dropping read, promise!
Check out the synopsis below and save the date, June 21st. It’s gonna be a very hot summer!
Hold up! There’s a part 1 and part 2 to this. Read those first before continuing.
Here it is! Part 3 and the conclusion to my blog’s erotic series, “Pay Me In…” I kind of broke my own rule. This was written in 32-hours instead of 24-hours and it is a little over 5k words long. But I couldn’t cut it short so…
As always, this has been lightly edited and contains… aw, you should already know. Thanks for reading this far ?. Let me know what you thought about the story in the comments! ?
Title: Pay Me In… PT. 3
Hold up! There’s a part 1 to this. Make sure you read it first (Click Here To Read Now!) before continuing to read this ;-). If you’ve read it and you’re all caught up, carry on… Just as the first one, this story was written in 24-hours, contains explicit content, and has been lightly edited by me.
