The Sultan of Finback Isle - Excerpt

Chapter 1: Welcome to the Island After slamming his palm on the start button, Abdullah Kalua lowered himself to his PWC’s dashboard, popping his bronze-brown knuckles over the handles. He hooted a lyric from his favorite Hawaiian victory song as the untethered watercraft flew off from the flank of the FBI boat, the latter disappearing as a gray-and-blue speck on the azure surface of the equatorial Pacific. He grinned with pleasure and rocked his head about, cheering for the breeze that flowed through his wavy black mane. His destination may have lain twenty degrees south and twenty-five degrees east of his father's home archipelago—as indicated on the dashboard's coordinate panel—but it felt fantastic to return to the tropics after almost three decades. Balmy as Los Angeles had been, its Mediterranean climate was too dry and the California current too frigid for Abdullah’s tastes. Monique lagged ten yards behind him. He could hear only the faintest hint of her PWC’s jetting out

My Bio
Me 2019

I am a passionate artist, essayist, and fiction writer based in Fallbrook, CA. Whether I am writing or drawing, my favorite subjects include dinosaurs and other prehistoric wildlife, the history of ancient Egypt and other African cultures, anthropology, fantasy characters, and beautiful women.

I’ve had a long educational journey over the last couple of decades, with my accomplishments including a B.A. in Biological Anthropology from UCSD and a B.S. in Game Design and Development from Coleman University (also in San Diego). With all that completed, the time has come to put school behind me and develop a career of my own as a self-employed creator.

hi

Can you please read this and tell me what you think of it? I wrote it myself

Since you seem to be ok with criticism regarding your work, I wanna tell you my problems with the character high-priestess Ishtar:

It seems slightly offensive and wrong to characterize a middle-eastern character with a hook nose as "avaricious" even if she isnt jewish because that imagery is deeply ingrained in the popular imagination.

I was actually reminded of the antisemitic "happy merchant" meme when I Saw her.
