Child and the SunGods – My new novel

For this month’s book,I decided to post my second full-length novel. Child and the Sungods is an Alice-in-Wonderlandish adventure fiction about a scientist and his little brother who get lost in another world. They battle zombies, meet talking animals, pirates, and look for the legendary king whose all-powerful “Wings of Ra” have been stolen from him. Meanwhile, a boy called Chike, seeks to restore the “living library” that holds all of humanities’ knowledge.

Both nonsensical, and thought-provoking, Child and the Sungods was inspired by characters and concepts from dreams, music, and various inspirations. I did no research for this story, so don’t expect any of it to make sense! It is very fantastical.

It belongs to my novel “universe” (Which I have not decided a name for quite yet), so you can expect to see familiar faces within my novels, though each story is very different from one another.

I am quite proud of this fantasy, even if it makes no sense to you, but it is still a great read if you like a good, twisted-fate tale.

Please take a look!

The Pyramid’s Return

Cov

Extremely abstract, this poetic short story, completely rhymed, unlike my other poetry novel, Facing the Phoenix, came about some years ago, after watching some fantasy themed movies, which inspired this piece. I gradually added to it, and detailed it with other poems I had sitting around, to enrich the “end of the world” scenario, and make it my own.

I am proud to say that this time around, the graphics in the background are mine – super simple, but I like them, and I never do digital art, so this is a first. Avery still takes credit for helping me put the book together though, and he always figures out a way to make the cover compelling, even when I choose a difficult art piece!

Follow “Soldier” through an adventurous maze of descriptive places and exciting danger as she finds out just how much trouble her world is in. With her sister, “Flower”, Flower’s boyfriend, “Killer” (also referred to as Young Man), their friends, “Boy”, “Girl”, “Cat”, “Civilian”, and his son, “Shine”, Soldier sets out to save the world, and prevent their planet from being infiltrated by the “Worst Fear”. What happens if the Worst Fear takes over? Perhaps “Salem”, or the mysterious “King El” knows. Soldier and her friends must rise to the top to aid the world and the people they love.

Bewilder by Sci-Fi: A collection of Weird and Wicked Poetry!

CovOn behalf of the month of Avery’s birthday, I decided it would be cool to put together my collection of sci-fi poetry to celebrate, as he and I are big fans of sci-fi art. While I wrote all of the prose in this book, and showcased some of my best sci-fi scenes, Avery contributed his awesome digital art and design. The cover was his design and painting, and I think it turned out great!

This creative project is a lot different than the other digital books we have done, and I do warn you – some of it is a little scary! (Hence, a collection of weird and wicked poetry) But my hope is to bring different audiences together, to a place where sci-fi meets poetry! As I say in the introduction of this book, enjoy it – before it becomes a thing of reality!
