Someone was knocking on the door. She yawned and turned over to the other side of her bed.
Tap Tap Tap Tap.
This time it sounded almost musical. Her lips curved into a smile.
Tap Tap Tap Tap Tap.
The rhythm was getting better and certain. Someone was persistent. She wasn't made of gooey... Read more of this blog post »

It’s crowded – the skulls alone shine black.
All entrances and exists have been closed,
There’s just one way – together, with the pack.
And as two horses, harnessed in a chain,
Depicting how the world is tightly joined,
The pack is moving on the circle... Read more of this blog post »

I'm no marketing pro. I'm just a guy who loves to write. Yet, as I've said here, the adventure of artisanal publishing requires hand-crafting a unique book AND getting it to readers.
A few weeks ago, I watched in amazement as thousands of readers downl... Read more of this blog post »

No matter where you go, every group of people makes fun of some nearby neighbor. To my dad in Rankin County, it has always been Simpson County hicks.

As you’ve no doubt noticed, things look a little different around here today.
For the past several weeks, I’ve been hard at work designing, developing, and building a brand new look and feel for A Dribble of Ink. 2014 promises a big transitional year for me, both personally and here at A Dribble o...Read more of this blog post »

We all make mistakes, but some of them are just plain ridiculous!
Like a part in my novel where I typed “the wound had head” instead of “the wound had healed”. Or where I accidentally wrote about the “top water PIMP supplier” where I should have said “top water PUMP supplier”.
Those little mistake...Read more of this blog post »
Time for a travel update!
After launching the book in Texas, my girlfriend and I flew to the UK to start the first leg of our book tour. I’ve been in London before, but this was the first time I was to ever venture outside of London.
We’ve been touring the country, meeting people, encouraging aspi...Read more of this blog post »

Yesterday, April 14th, was my 23rd birthday. It was actually one of the loveliest times I’ve had on my birthday in a while. I woke up to a super sweet email from my boyfriend, got to spend the day with old and new mates, and then climbed to the roof of my apartment with a couple of my oldest frie...Read more of this blog post »

I just finished my fourth novel (the third one for the Tellaran Series) The Consort, and have started on my fifth book. I’m really excited about The Consort because it picks up a few months after Stardancer ends and I revisit a lot of the characters from Stardancer. The Co... Read more of this blog post »
So there we are, at a hawk watch station, asking for directions to the nearest Aplomado Falcon.
And we got them, but they were Birder Directions, which are a special kind of instructions similar to country directions, only worse and more so. “Go down to the end of the road, turn left at the scary...Read more of this blog post »

Originally, I was going to say “The only way to know why someone would racebend a POC character is to ask the OP” but this really isn’t 100% true.
It is correct enough to infer that, when a character who is already non-white gets racebent, it is because the artist doesn’t understand the purpose of...Read more of this blog post »
Guys! Last month, I interviewed LILY ALLEN for a cover story for a magazine! I’ve loved her music since she appeared on the music scene in 2006, so it was quite surreal to have tea with her inside Claridge’s Hotel in London.

On mother’s day, on the 30th March this year, a present arrived for me, from Ursula, my wife and mother of my child, that put my measly pretence of a gift in the shade. The Complete Poetry of César Vallejo, a Peruvian poet from the early 20th century, was the last thing I would have expected, for...Read more of this blog post »
IGBOLAND is a romantic novel of passion, conflict and adventure. While it is a work of fiction, it is inspired by the diary, photos and stories of my parents who lived out in Nigeria for six years.
My Mum’s diary is full of intriguing details and incidents, although it is important to note that...Read more of this blog post »
Last night there was a complete lunar eclipse, and what was amazing was that in the middle of it, the great round white moon turned red. Or as the drama queens among us put it, “blood red.” This is the blood red moon with a star.
A lunar eclipse is a predictable event for modern people, but...Read more of this blog post »
