  4. Before they were crewmates, Changa, The Tuareg, Panya, Mikaili and Amir Zakee all experienced their own adventures. The stories in this exciting anthology give a glimpse of their lives before the fateful safari that binds them as a family and changes each of them forever. Before the Safari adds depth to this fantastic adventure and expands Sword and Soul in an exciting and entertaining way. 'Every story is a solid, glorious hunk of swords & sorcery, and each one a discrete adventure that moves its protagonist forward to the time when he’ll meet his future companions. Watching characters we’ve come to love as a company venture and struggle on their own is a lot of fun.' -Fletcher Vredenburgh, Sword and Sorcery Blogspot https://www.mvmediaatl.com/product-page/before-the-safari-a-changa-s-safari-prequel #swordandsoul #swordandsorcery ISBN-13: 978-0999278918 Before The Safari: A Changa's Safari Prequel
  5. The year is 1870. As the young country of Freedonia prepares to celebrate fifty years of existence, a young bounty hunter by the name of Zeke Culpepper is hired by a wealthy businessman to find a valuable book. In the kingdom of Mali on the continent of Africa, veteran warrior Famara Keita has been assigned to find that same book and bring it back to its rightful owner. And in the newly formed nation of Germany, an ambitious Prussian officer seeks the book as well for its secrets that could make Germany the most powerful nation in the world. The result is an action adventure like no other! Soon to be an exciting animation series! 'Davis has crafted a wonderfully engaging tale of adventure, populated by characters that are fully-formed, lovingly rendered, and sadly missing from a large swath of published genre fiction. With an intricately-detailed setting, a history that is rife for future expansion, and a knack for creating characters that are both relatable, and easily assimilated into the reader's psyche, this is recommended reading. All told, it's one of my favorite stories that I've read in quite some time. Do yourself a favor and check it out...'

  6. I've toyed with the idea of only selling books directly, but like you said people prefer Amazon for the most part. I think it would work, but it would mean fewer book sales but probably higher profit. I currently work with a brother in Baton Rouge who I sell books to directly at a discounted rate. He does events during the weekend and sells books and comics from me and other creators. He does very well. I wish I could find more people like him.
  7. Atlanta. ATL. The Rising Phoenix. The City too Busy to Hate. The Black Mecca. Capital of the Deep South. There, between flitting shadows and full moons, exists another world filled with dark creatures, demons, and immortals. Only a thin veil separates the Atlanta you know from this mysterious realm. Nine brave authors risk it all to reveal the crossroads of Southern charm and the Black Fantastic. Y'all ready? ISBN-13: 978-0999278925 Terminus Paperback
  8. Thirteen year old Amber Robinson's life is full of changes. Her parents are sending her to a private school away from her friends, and high school looms before her. But little does she know that her biggest change awaits in a mysterious city hidden from the world for a thousand years. Why? Amber's grandmother is a princess from this magical kingdom of Marai. She's been summoned home to use her special abilities to select the new king but she no longer has the gift, and her daughter was never trained for the task. That leave only one person with the ability to save the city: Amber! But there are those who are determined that Amber never reaches Marai and they will do anything to stop her. Prepare yourself for an exciting adventure that spans from the Atlanta suburbs to the grasslands of Mali. It's a story of a girl who discovers her hidden abilities and heritage in a way that surprises and entertains. 'Amber is the type of girl I would want my daughter to grow up to be. She is gusty, but not overly zealous. She is sensitive, but not a crybaby. Likes boys, but is not overly obsessive like a popular heroine from a certain vampire series. She disobeys her parents and pushes boundaries, but still knows when enough is enough.Kudos to Davis for this marvelous tale, especially in a genre where people of color are overwhelmingly underrepresented. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did and spread the word.' ISBN-13: 978-0980084276 Amber and The Hidden City Paperback Amber and The Hidden City Hardcover

  12. ISBN-13: 978-0999278970. Thanks for the tip!
  13. My books are available from my website and most all book venues due to my distribution with Ingram. If it's not on the shelf, which it most likely isn't, you can talk to the manager and ask them for the title. I know for a fact that I'm in the Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million catalog.
  14. I was introduced to science fiction and fantasy by my college English instructor who was trying to lure me from a chemistry major to an english major. It didn't work, but it sparked my love for science fiction and fantasy and eventually my writing career. Other Black people I've met were brought to the genres by Octavia Butler's stories. Now a new generation is being inspired by the Black Panther movie, Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bones and a new crop of Black indie science fiction and fantasy writers that have emerged on the scene over the past 10 years. But why should science fiction and fantasy be important to Black readers?
  15. Raised in the streets of Sati-Baa, Omari Ket is a man that gets by on his wits and skills . . . and the attentions of a god. Eda Blessed shares the tales of the man and the mercenary as he roams the roads of Ki Khanga bouncing from one adventure to another surviving with his skills, wits, and Eda's blessings. Eda Blessed Paperback Eda Blessed E-Book The bad man of sword and soul has arrived, damn it to the Cleave! Eda Blessed is a collection of stories all about Ki Khanga's resident rogue, Omari Ket, a feared and unusually lucky Mikijen Mercenary, favored by Eda. Omari Ket is the anti-hero you love to hate... and love, oddly enough. Open THIS book and you are in for a wild ride. A ride you'll enjoy every second of! -Balogun Ojetade, Master Griot of Ki Khanga: The Sword and Soul Role Playing Game. Eda's Blessed is the perfect storm where setting, tone, character, and story all snap into place, creating something special. -Steve Rosenstein and Rodney Turner, Microphones of Madness Milton Davis brings us an exciting character who is clearly a rogue, a thief and an all-around womanizing scoundrel. His one flaw is that he somehow manages to do the right thing at the right time. Eda Blessed is a fun, fast paced ride, helmed by a hero...or antihero...who leads us on a journey into the quirkier side of Sword and Soul. Enjoy the ride! It's worth it! -Ronald Jones, Author of Warrior of the Four Worlds and Kitombo Milton Davis has done it again! Omari Ket is the personification of a Chaotic Good Rogue who you don't want to cross, but might want on your side in a fight. Davis weaves his understanding of African culture with his love of the Black Fantastic into a series of stories that will capture your imagination. You'll have a tough time putting it down. If you like the anti-heroes of The Black Company by Glen Cook or the reluctant and recalcitrant hero Elric Of Melnibone' by Michael Morecock then pick this up and be Eda Blessed. - Gerald L. Coleman, Author of When Night Falls and A Plague of Shadows Eda Blessed is a blast! Set in the world of Ki Khanga, this collection of stories about the roguish Omari Ket's rise from the back alleys to mercenary to a path of unwanted supernatural destiny is a terrific work of sword & sorcery. -Fletcher Vredenburgh, Sword and Sorcery Blogspot
