Where: Starbucks, Lakepointe Towne Crossing, 721 Hebron Pkwy Suite #101, Lewisville, TX

When: Saturday, December 14, 2019. 10 – 11:30am.

Come on out to my book swap at Starbucks! Bring me a book, and you’ll get one of my books. No joke. It’s a win-win setup: you get introduced to my writing, and I get a book to enjoy, too.

I’ve written books in just about every genre: children’s, young adult, thriller, science fiction. So yes, bring the kiddies! They can swap a book for one of my children’s books.

Feel free to chat with me, too, and have a cuppa Joe.

Stipulations

I reserve the right to refuse books that fall into the first 2 categories.

  1. All books must be in decent condition. Don’t bring books to trade that are headed for the trash heap with missing covers, loose spines, horribly dog-eared pages, faded ink, etc. No books stolen from the library, either!
  2. Leave the controversial stuff at home. I won’t consider anything with zealous religion, politics, racist rhetoric or gratuitous sex in it. Warning: I will throw books like Mein Kampf, Dianetics, 50 Shades of Greyand Portnoy’s Complainton the floor and pour cappuccino on them. Self-help or how-to books don’t fall into this category, but I want fiction and non-fiction books.
  3. There is a 2-book maximum per visit. Don’t bring in a pile of books to swap for all of mine to take away, and people who come later get absolutely nothing. Everyone gets a fair shot. Let’s be considerate of others!
  4. First come, first serve. No reserving books in advance. You must physically come to the coffeeshop to swap books.

Helpful hints

I am partial to the following fiction authors: Stephen King, VC Andrews, and Toni Morrison. You can never go wrong with those. But I am always open to trying new books. Biographies or autobiographies are good choices, too. So bring them on! If you’re unable to make these events, all my books are available on Amazon: https://seanarchy.wordpress.com/2018/04/14/the-sean-c-wright-bookshelf/

See you there! It will be fun.

Skoll’s Diary: My [Sneaky] Commentary on Today’s Racial & Political Climate

Afro-Sean-Commission-Final copy

I published the novel Skoll’s Diary in summer 2019. It’s a tale, in journal form, about a young man on a terraformed planet in our solar system. I wrote it for the following reasons. It may step on some toes, but I don’t give a fat fig. You have the option of not reading it:

  • I am a huge astronomy nerd.
  • 2016 was the start of a hostile political and racial climate in The United States. I got to thinking, what if black folks just up and left Earth, and relocated to another planet in The Milky Way? And how would a black community perform, completely untouched by colonialism?
  • People of color are quite underrepresented in science fiction, so I was happy to have a protagonist of color in this genre.

I combined all those things, along with Skoll’s normal battles: teen angst, making mature decisions, dating, family issues, and wavering loyalty to his community. He is, after all, just a young man. His struggles would be the same – no matter what planet he lived on. It’s also crucial to me that black people, especially males, are viewed as human and vulnerable at times. That’s something else that’s rarely seen.

Anyway, I don’t want to spoil the book for you, if you plan to read it. You may get it here. No matter what you think, please leave a review if you read it. Thank each and every one of you who subscribe to my blog.

Sincerely,

Author Sean C. Wright-Neeley

***99-Cent Ebook 11/12-11/14: Glo Ro Saves Best Treasure Chest***

This is a young adult novel, but adults will like it, too. Get Glo Ro Saves Best Treasure Chest in ebook form from 11/12 – 11/14/19.

4.5/5 stars: Glorious is unique, inquisitive and an old soul. What teenager takes the time to help her local thrift store owner? Glorious does! 

5/5 stars: Glo Ro Saves Best Treasure Chest is told from the perspective of the title character, Glorious Day Roberts, a high school student with an eye for detail that Sherlock Holmes would envy. What is great about this story is that Ms. Wright immerses us in the character of the teenager. Glo is precocious, but she is still a kid and we are reminded of this by the frequent tangents she goes off on – exactly as a normal teenage person does. As she is conducting her investigation, something catches her attention and Glo is momentarily off the case and onto a new train of thought. However, the case is always on her mind, and she is soon back on the trail, and the momentary reprieve actually gives her a clearer view… 

Synopsis: 16-year-old Glorious Day Roberts (Glo Ro) is big-haired, dyslexic, and fighting family demons. But she takes those issues in stride, instead focusing on getting to kernels of truth. When her favorite thrift store is in trouble, Glorious knows she has no choice but to turn on her shine, full-blast.

Genre: young adult

Length: 195 pages

Book Review: The Good Kill

IMG_4717.jpg

Title: The Good Kill

Author: Kurt Brindley

Genre: Action

Length: 392 pages

Action? Check. Lone wolf hero with a tragic flaw? Check. Strong women? Check.

This action-packed book grabs you by the throat from the beginning. It does it firmly, but not to preachily, to keep you captive audience, as Brindley gives you a peek into the grimy underbelly of too much money, not enough morals, the sex trade, and espionage. The protagonist, Killian Lebon, is a broken veteran who engages in a very creative form of vigilance. You know it’s wrong, but you can’t help but cheer him on, offer to buy his lunch for his service if you see him in a diner: keeping society safe from people who can’t defend themselves.

My only criticism is that Brindley does paint some of the characters with a broad brush. You have the stereotypical whorish, foul-mouthed black woman (Ruby) whose only power over men is what she has under her skirt. But she is balanced out by her twin sister’s resolve to yank her out of that fool’s gold life.

Riveting and intriguing, The Good Kill is a book that leaves you wondering when the movie is coming out. Get the book here. Find out more about the author, Kurt Brindley, here.

Skoll’s Diary Interview

I had the pleasure of speaking with Tonisha Mitchell, founder of Wonders of the World Book and Toy, a site that now carries Skoll’s Diary. We had a leisurely, yet meaningful chat about my 8th book. Set aside about 30 minutes to get a behind-the-scenes peek into what went into crafting this sci-fi, Afro-futuristic novel, and my life an an indie author.

See the interview here.
