The Rape of Innocence to become a Feature Film

I want to share a praise report/brag. I heard from a lady from California yesterday. She pitched my book, The Rape of Innocence, to a small independent black film company and they loved the idea of doing a feature film on my book. So, I will have a contract by tomorrow morning via FedEx.

Writing No-Nos

There are certain things many authors do that murders their manuscript. These things can render your manuscript worthless in the site of any legitimate agent or publisher. Some of those no-nos are:

1. Undeveloped characters and/or storylines - if you're going to write, do it well. Take time to give your characters a life of their own. Make sure your story is not too short or too long. Make sure it doesn't leave any unanswered questions, unless of course, you plan to write a sequel or… Continue
