Features

Below is an ever expanding list of features, interviews, podcasts, and just overall promotion I have done about the Elemental series. Check them out!

Alcorn Alumnus Feature

My first ever feature came from my beloved Alcorn State University. Here I talked about the release of Legend of the Orange Scepter and why creating such a book was important to me. 

National Black Book Festival ’15 Interview

At my first ever festival, I was asked a few questions by Christina Lockett. I think I did pretty well as a first time vendor.  What do you think?

Kallyne Interview

In my first published interview, I did a three part series for Kallyne. We talked about my work thus far, the importance of speculation, and how all of these things help to cultivate the generation after us. 

Constance Burris’ Blog Feature

During Black Speculative Fiction Month 2016, I was interviewed by fellow Black Speculative Fiction author Constance Burris for her author feature series. Burris’s series of blogs feature some amazing authors, and I was honored to be among them!

Genesis Science Fiction Radio Interview

In March 2017 I did a two-hour radio show interview for Genesis Science Fiction Radio. As a Black owned and operated radio show, we talked a lot about creating opportunities for Black creatives, our individual processes, and of course in depth about the Elemental series.

Tri-State Defender Feature

One of my visits to the National Black Book Festival earned me a fan from Memphis, TN, so I was able to do a feature for one of the prominent Memphis newspapers in return! Phyllis Dixon was able to put me in the lineage of great Black authors, and for that I’m grateful! 

Audio Review of “New Elements”

After Black Power: A Superhero Anthology was released, Steve and Rodney of Microphones of Madness did an audio review of the anthology and all its stories. In this edition of that review, they talk about my contribution, “New Elements”. They were able to compare my story to many greats in the comic and superhero world, and for that I’m grateful!

At BlerDCon 2017, I was interviewed by Erika Cristie about the Elemental series. We talked about Legend of the Orange Scepter, the purpose behind the series, and of course a little bit on Return of A.G. Check it out below!

WDSV Interview

I went back to Greenville, MS this year and I had the opportunity to be interviewed on another radio program, this time at 91.9 WDSV, a community owned and run radio station that highlights people and events in the Mississippi Delta. This one was especially important to me not just because it was at home, but also because I was interviewed by one of my former teachers!
