Sci-fi author raising funds for series about Black female superhero

LOS ANGELES – Author and visual artist Carla J. Lawson has launched a Go Fund Me campaign in support of the next African American female superhero, her publicist announced today.

“Although the concept of a Black, female superhero is not new, introducing one with a literary soundtrack and dynamic three-book series platform is,” said Fran Briggs, publicist to Carla J. Lawson.

The author’s trilogy features Odara, an African American female superhero. Odara feels everything, sees what others cannot, and hears the voices of the Earth. The character diversifies science fiction as well as creates strong force in Afro futurism.

“It’s an honor to introduce the next, Black female Superhero. Using her supernatural understanding, Odara embraces her role as a warrior for the greater good,” explained Lawson. “Among her weapons are knowledge, timeless wisdom, and ability to time travel, and control physical motion.’

“I am raising money so that I can recognize my backers with unique, valuable rewards that represent the book series,” Lawson continued, “but I am also generating revenue to employ a first-class, marketing, production, publicity campaign, and publishing team to ensure that the series receives the tools it needs to succeed.”

The northern California resident added that she is looking forward to delivering one-of-a-kind, rewards and perks to her backers. Among the rewards for contributors are the literary soundtrack by Black Women in Jazz and Lifetime Achievement Award-winner DeeJazz, executive producer naming rights, and a matted and framed original art work by Lawson.
