The First Look at the Newest Installment of My Series Is Here!

It’s been nearly five months since I brought out my first short novel. Now here’s a first look at what’s coming next in my series, The Women of Adalor.

Even though PIL was the first installment in my series I’ve been refining this story for a while and now it’s almost time for you all to see what I’ve been working on.

I’m so excited to share this story with you and I’m happy to announce this newest adventure will be arriving this FALL. I’ll be sharing more details in the coming weeks but for now, here’s ANNABELLE.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.

The Newest Installment in My Short Novel Series Is Almost Here!

Almost five months ago I released my first short novel, PIL which was such a major milestone for me. For years I have been working on bringing these stories in my head to life and to finally release one of these stories to you all was nothing short of mind-blowing. Especially when I got my first review and it was overwhelmingly positive. Suddenly, all of that hard work and brainstorming felt worth it.

Of course, that wasn’t the end. In fact, it was only the beginning.

I Have an Announcement to Make!

Well, this is a very big moment for me in my life. For my twenty-three years on this Earth, I have always been a writer. My love for writing began as a venue to be a storyteller which gradually changed into wanting to share my love for all things entertainment with you all. Since the end of 2016 I’ve been doing just that; sharing my thoughts on the latest movies or television shows and it’s been a blast every single year.

But now, after so many years of writing and creating new stories in my head I can finally officially announce my first venture into the world of fiction. Here is the name of my upcoming series that I can’t wait to share with you all.

This will be a series of short novels that feature the individual stories of a fascinating group of powerful, purposeful women of all races, shapes, and sizes. As you can probably tell from the title, it will be set in an entirely different land known as Adalor where my cast of extraordinary ladies will face challenges large and small.

I absolutely cannot wait to share more with you this month and the first short novel of the series will be dropping very, very soon.

I thank you for always reading my posts, following my journey, supporting me, and I can’t wait to tell you more. Have a wonderful day!

It’s Batman Day: Who’s Your Favorite Catwoman?

Catwoman, she’s one of the most iconic DC Comics characters of all time. She also happens to be one of my favorite comic book characters for her sleek catsuits, her unabashed flirtatious nature, and her incredible ability to kick serious butt. Several women have taken the mantle as the feline and very capable femme fatale and today, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought she would be a perfect fit. Enjoy!

Julie Newmar

The first major appearance for Catwoman was on the iconic 60s’ Batman series and the actress who brought her to life was Julie Newmar. I don’t know anything about this version of Catwoman but I couldn’t leave her off of the list considering that she holds so much importance to Catwoman’s time on the small screen.

Eartha Kitt

Before you had Wesley Snipes making history as Blade or Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther you had Eartha Kitt as the first African-American actress to play Catwoman in the 60s’ Batman series. She wasn’t playing the role of Batman’s love interest in the series but she was still able to kick some serious butt and pave the way for other black actresses to play the character (Halle Berry and Zoe Kravitz.) That’s pretty awesome.

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer is undoubtedly the most iconic version of the character. Transforming from a timid, glass-wearing secretary into a confident, dangerous and very alluring lady in a remarkably shiny catsuit with a whip, Pfeiffer is the best thing about Batman Returns.

Halle Berry

Okay…this is my first time seeing this version of Catwoman’s outfit and it’s definitely cool, especially, I’m sure, for guys, but unfortunately the only superhero film to ever be helmed by a black woman would be deemed one of the worst superhero movies of all time.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway would be the next actress to squeeze into a tight black suit and catch Batman’s fancy as the fascinating Seline Kyle. Now, unlike the other Catwomen who were called Catwoman in their respective roles Nolan referred to her only as Selina, changing her storyline just a bit. Undoubtedly, she’s one of the best things about the film.

Camren Bicondova

And last but not least, there is Camren’s portrayal of the iconic character but what makes her so different is she is the only version that is shown as a teenager who grows up over a course of seasons on the show. That’s pretty cool.

And then, we’ll have Zoe Kravitz next. I can’t wait to see her as Catwoman. *squeal*

So, of these six versions of the iconic Catwoman, which is your favorite? For me, undoubtedly my favorite, despite Michelle’s clear iconicism, my favorite Selina is Anne Hathaway. I think she’s truthfully beautiful, I love her dagger heels, and plus, she’s part of Nolan’s films and I love his concept of these classic DC Comics characters.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Did You KNow Disney Is Making a Live-Action Movie Featuring an African Princess?

Disney, for the past several years, have made live-action movies featuring some of the greatest fairy tales and stories; Alice in WonderlandThe Jungle BookBeauty and the Beast, the list goes on. And now it’s been reported that a new live-action film is in the works featuring the story of an African princess named Sade. Um…AWESOME!

Here’s the current synopsis: Sadé centers on a young adult African girl named Sadé who, when her kingdom is threatened by a mysterious evil force, accepts her newly discovered magical warrior powers to protect herself and her people. With the help of the kingdom’s prince, Sadé embarks on an adventure that will allow her to embrace what makes her special and save the kingdom.

As of right now, Rick Famuyiwa (The Mandalorian) is set to produce the film. Sounds amazing, right?

After Black Panther‘s surprising success it seems that Disney is looking to find more ways to incorporate stories of black heroes and heroines into their various franchises. I honestly couldn’t be more excited to hear this news. This is great news to hear and I hope to hear more about it in the coming years.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.

This Segment of ‘The Last Jedi’ Perfectly Sums Up Leia’s Entire Journey and Her Constant Triumphs

I’ve watched The Last Jedi over twenty times now and during my latest viewing of the film one of the scenes that surprisingly struck me was in fact one of the quietest moments in the movie and that was when Leia was sitting by herself in the cruiser, Ninka. Throughout Leia’s involvement in Star Wars we haven’t seen her grieve a lot even though she has experienced so much loss. She lost nearly her entire crew aboard the ship, Tantative IV, to Darth Vader and his stormtroopers. Then she had to watch her home planet of Alderaan get obliterated before her very eyes (and her mother and father along with it.) She had to endure seeing Han Solo getting frozen in carbonite, nearly dying in the process. And then even after the Rebellion defeated the Empire the hardships she would face were far from over.

When we see Leia again thirty years after the end of the Imperial war the struggles that she has faced can be plainly seen on her face. From the political obstacles she had to face during the creation and rise of the New Republic to the new war that was on the brink of the horizon with the meager Resistance against the mighty First Order. There’s also the more personal losses she has had to deal with as well along the way with the sudden and total absence of her beloved brother, Luke Skywalker, the agony of knowing that her very son, Ben Solo, was a First Order leader and dark side fanatic, and the depressing separation between her and the man she loves in Han Solo.

Leia has not had an easy life, in fact she’s had if not the hardest, one of the toughest journeys in Star Wars and this is really apparent in The Last Jedi.
