The end of pride

Burning Burning,of wants you'll never have,unfulfilled loneliness,of your own choosing,destruction of peace paid for by vengeance,of an unhappy heart,contempt of those around you who are happy,in their own quaint,treetops of air are not enough when silence comes prowling out of the darkness the corners, the devastations, the self brought agonies of untold frightful panic,yes despair is in the air,can you taste it? Eat it until you are full,yet you always remain hungry for more and more and more… Continue

"Nigga Point of View"

Nigga is and Nigga was,Nigger is your wants an a nigger always does, nigga is affection,nigger needs protection,nigga is my friend call me nigger your feet swiftly steppin,

Yes, I still write in that horror vein. It's in my screenplays, too. But the completed work is This Child Will, a novel in hardback and paperback on I also write blogs on the Hubpages website. Tell me, do you have a book or something that I could write about and direct people to your website. I would like to do that for you and get a team effort in promoting our work or creating a platform. That's the big word these days. What if we pooled our efforts in the creation of a website for Black writers of speculative fiction, and serious fiction. I hope I don't turn you off, but aren't you tired of baby mama, baby daddy stories, the dumb brothers who knock up everything that breaths? Email me @ Lets brainstorm. And check out This Child Will, the story of a clairvoyant Black child. I feel it's pretty much up your alley.
