Works in Progress

Hey everyone.  I wanted to take a moment to let everyone know about works in progress and upcoming book releases.

First, I’m running a new promotion for the first three Jonah Blackstone novels later this month. The promotion will culminate during the week of Halloween. As you know, events in Amulet of the Goddess, the third novel of the series, take place during the four weeks leading up to Halloween and the Witching Hour.

During the promotion, the Kindle versions will be sold at a promotional discount. So, pick up a copy of all three novels for yourself or as a gift and start the adventure with Jonah Blackstone!

Fourth and Fifth Jonah Blackstone Novels

Recently, I attended the BlerDCon convention here in the DC area and was asked my multiple fans about the next Jonah Blackstone novel.  I’m hard at work on the next book. The working title is Jonah Blackstone and the Destiny Medallion. This will be a two-book storyline with Destiny’s Sorrow being the working title for the second half of the story. 

Jonah not only goes on new adventures, but he meets new kids and finds out more about his dad’s family. As his godfather, Marcus predicted, Jonah is finally taking his place among the Alliance and the politics of the Council.

We may see the first group of Protectors in this installment! I’m excited to finally arrive at this point and plan to release the Destiny Medallion in Spring of 2020. The second part, Destiny’s Sorrow, will come out in late 2020.


Omega Quest Series

The Omega Quest series blurb has been posted my website from the very beginning. Well, finally, I’m moving toward the release of the first four novels in that series!  The world-building on this series has been crazy and taken me years to complete. 


What if Dr. King and Malcolm-X were never killed? What if the Tulsa Oklahoma Black Wall Street, as well as other Black Wall Streets  around the country were never destroyed and survived into the present day? What if Wakanda wasn’t just a movie but real, advanced zones in the U.S. where black people have lived and thrived for the past fifty years?


Omega Quest is an exciting, afro futuristic fantasy series set in an alternate reality where these things exist.  The novels follow the lives of four powerful, young meta-human characters, who each come from different levels of this society.


The first novel in the series, Killer Princess, will release in early 2020.

Synopsis: On the eve of taking control of her family fortune, Yvette Dupree, a guilt-ridden heiress, and trained meta-human assassin, reluctantly accepts a drug that’ll help her find inner peace; but when the drug opens up her painful past and leaves her vulnerable to an old enemy, Yvette must face her deepest fears and save herself before time runs out.

 
This novel will be followed by Jade Fire, Light Demon, and Sentinel’s Call. More updates will be posted in the coming weeks.
