AWARD-WINNER NEALE SOURNA’S AFRICAN AMERICAN / AFRICAN DIASPORA FICTION
_Novels, game narratives, short stories, nonfiction, and more. Contemporary, Historical, Erotica, etc.
Cleveland, Ohio – Award-winning author Neale Sourna has been writing, editing, and publishing quality fiction and nonfiction since 2002 through Sourna’s publishing company, PIE: Perception Is Everything, based in Cleveland, Ohio, USA and other publishers, too. Sourna’s PIE-Percept.com is both African American owned and woman owned; plus, its author-editor-owner has won narrative Best of Quality awards for novel fiction, pc game narratives, and screenplay writing; starting with first novel, “Hobble”, which won the Best of Year Award for Romantic Erotica from BlackRefer.com.
Sourna’s storytelling includes sensuality, humor, and unique characterizations; because good characters rule the emotional part of the best stories we love; characters who makes us love, hate, or love AND hate them. Sourna’s characters are often “mixed race” or biracial, whether in a dangerous contemporary sexual triangle in the romantic erotica thriller “Hobble” (with Sourna modeling on cover); the erotic exploits of a biracial teen “Tad”, who is in love with his dark-skinned English professor, while another student seeks Tad’s affections, too; or the coming romantic historical adventure tale of “Becca DuMaurier”, a brown-skinned noble born a commoner and living in Charles II’s Restoration Britain of the late 1600s among black pirates, amorous kings, and revolution.
Sourna’s growing catalog also includes works for game companies such as Sex and Glory / Passion based in Moscow or Orchid Games; including adult game narratives based on Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”, Lovecraft’s “Re-animator” and other horror tales, and a Fran Miller “Sin City”-styled detective tale, and fully original stories for casual women gamers, such as: “Heartwild Solitaire, “The Secret of Margrave Manor”, “Margrave Manor 2: The Lost Ship”, and more. Plus, Sourna has intriguing nonfiction about such things as oral lovemaking. http://www.neale-sourna.com/scriptgateway.html
Neale Sourna wants “readers (including history and literature professors, and their students) to experience is love, fear, and the romantic adventure that is life; feeling the fears, loves, confusions, and clarity that come with loving ourselves and in loving another. Also, that we of African Descent didn’t just appear in history to be slaves, or to invent the Harlem Renaissance, or riot in American cities. We have built and lived in great, legendary cities such as Timbuktu, have traveled the world for adventure like others have, and that so many of our grandparents were born as Europeans and Americans because of love, not just rape.
"In seeking Black Europeans, they are hard to find; but we do know that Henry VIII in the 1500s had a black trumpeter entertainer he paid highly, not owned, and that he also had a black captain of his guard, a fine warrior whom he later knighted and whose descendants became Russian nobility. We know that the French king in Becca’s time had a black daughter who became a famous nun. And that a black man became a great samurai; so, to me, that says let’s write something fresh and exciting!”
