I’ve been a comic fan for over 35 years. One of the reasons I started writing when I was nine years old was in the hopes that one day I’d be able to write comic books.
Now I’ve been very critical of the comic book industry. And I’ve only been so harsh because I care deeply about saving the comic book business. I want to see the industry break out of this two-decade slump and get back to producing quality stories that will allow a new generation of younger readers to access the characters I grew up with.
But until comic book publishers get their act together and start publishing quality stories again, I’m urging all the comic fans out there to not only try other forms of literature. Like my African-American fantasy fiction.
I’ve been told by friends and family that my stories read like comic books. Some even say they read like movies. I’ve even had readers finish my novels in just a day or two. Most people enjoy my work.
And I’d like to think comic fans would enjoy them as well.

My fantasy fiction is priced about the same as a comic book or a trade paperback. But I feel they offer readers a higher entertainment value per dollar than today’s 32-page comic book.

Isis. It’s the book that started my writing and publishing career and one of my top selling books over the past decade.
|400 pages for $15!|
If comic readers have a Kindle, ipad, Nook or other tablet device or cell phone they can buy any of my titles in all the eBook formats for just 99 cents at amazon, Barnes & Noble, the itunes bookstore, or Smashwords!
I’d like to offer comic fans an alternative to the countless reboots, retcons, relaunches, and other gimmicks comic publishers use to sell comics today. A chance to read stories that entertain, educate, and inspire readers to use their imaginations. Most of my stories are designed to be all-ages reading that’s easy to access and easy to follow. Every story is an entry point and every story starts and finishes in one volume. If you’re a comic reader and you’re tired of 100 issue epic storylines that are impossible to get into unless you know the entire history of a comic book universe, then give one of my paperbacks or eBooks a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
