Whenever I hit publish, I feel like I've done them justice.

A close second would be receiving messages from fans. I love it when the characters I love so much are loved by others too. (less)

I write stories because I have no other choice. If I don't write my soul is uneasy. My biggest problem is not having the time to tell they story the way it wants to be told. (less)

There Can Be Only One

For a long time I had it in my head that I could only work on one project a time. Working on two was just an excuse to procastinate. But the talented Ines Johnson keeps posting her productivity pictures on Facebook and she works on atleast two projects at a time and she’s super productive.


So for the past month, I decided to do something different. I’m working on three projects:

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
“Sorcerers, and merchants that sell to sorcerers. For the whole child, your collector can fetch a good price. But for real fortune he auctions each part to highest bidder. The head for the swamp witch. The right leg for the barren woman. The bones grounded to a grain, so that your grandfather’s cock will stay hard for several women. The fingers for amulets, the hair for whatever a witchman tells you. A good collector of babies can make fifty more for her parts than she would by just selling the whole child. And double for the albino. Your collector even cuts the baby into pieces himself. The ...more
Mingi children are only a superstition, in reality they are sold to sorcerers or killed and their parts sold to various people for their own use.
Read By RodKelly shared a note and highlight from
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James
Here is my belief. The first man was jealous of the first woman. Her lightning was too powerful, her screams and moans loud enough to wake up the dead. That man could never accept that the gods would gift the weaker woman with such riches, so before every girl becomes a woman, man sets up to steal it, cut it away, and throw it in the bush. But the gods put it there, hid it deep so that no man would have business going to find it. Man will pay for this.
Female pleasure more intense. Men circumcize them to stop the pleasure
