Now, The City: A Cyberfunk anthology. I'm always looking for ways to test myself in the fantasy/scifi genre and "Free Your Mind" was that test. It started out as me joining a post on Facebook in the State of Black Science Fiction group. That post mainly was about writing small shorts shaped around specific sci-fi images we found, it then turned into this awesome project that I was lucky enough to be a part of. "Free Your Mind" tells the story of a Runner Iset with a unique mission and her dear friend/protector Orion. In their, fight to protect a missive she will struggle with her past and present in order to free the minds of many.
I wasn't sure how I was going to go with this story. I knew that with everything I write, I like to add a touch of romance, or sex and this one I did that. But outside of that, I was writing in an incredible world set in the future, doing things I had no idea if they would make sense. I hoped to educate a little and add a lot of action to the piece. In it all it challenged me to the point that I'm still nervous about it. I'm excited to share it with you all, but like any writer, I'm nervous. Iset is a rebel and you'll learn that in the short piece I wrote. I was able to write with a fellow contributor and we had a ball. D.K. Gaston's character is featured in my story, so for those who enjoy his short and want to see more of his character, check out mine. We both bounced off each other and linked our story in an exciting way.
With all of that, please make sure to grab both anthologies. I've been busy and I hope that my work translated into something entertaining.
This blog is also now part of a blog tour for The City, so visit my fellow participants and see how they created their stories and world as Citizens. Also, please support this effort especially due to the fact that there are not that many women acknowledged in sci-fi writing. This novel features a few women like myself and we all need your support.
The City will be available as an e-book via Amazon, Barnes and Noble (Nook) and Kobo on September 25th and as a paperback at MVmedia (www.mvmediaatl.com) and wherever books are sold by October 15th.
