Open your heart and be contagious about it.
GASP!!… Now that I’ve regained my breath, let me illustrate for you the true purpose behind my long dive under the blog radar.
Dreams will always be a fantasy, unless we fashion them into reality, and as long as my worst enemy, I’m talking about Mr. Time, keeps pulling me under, they won’t be materialized to something palpable. Now, however, I have managed to emerge from my drowning state, so I can be able to present my most recent news.
I have been away for a while, turning every stone I encounter until I found my precious golden individuals. I have gathered a team of talents who are about to venture with me through our new journey. We are going to start a production company. You heard it correctly.
How did that happen? Well, the story goes with an idea. I approached my new book cover creator (Iblis) with a new story which I wanted to tell in a different manner than I’m known for; through episodic comic motion. Looking at his talent with what he did with my second book‘s cover, I was able to feel confident about the future of that project. But, after discussing it with him and his cousin (who is now our director of photography) they decided to include more talents in our small group. So after meeting with our professional team, we were able to tell that this new conglomeration felt right. So before we move on with our work, we decided to know each other through a small project at first. Short movie will require creating a new story, which I didn’t mind, but another thought shot through our designer’s head, hitting the right target. He suggested that we could start with a small commercial, which could be considered as a Minute Story.
So here’s what happened, we have approached the Kuwaiti American Football Team, who, thank’s to our aligned lucky stars, are on their way to play in the world cup this October. My responsibility is to create the idea of the commercial, to do the musical score and to direct the commercial. This Sunday we will meet to discuss the project with the owner of the team. Hopefully, they will respond positively to what we are bringing to their table.
Now you know the reason why I have been too quiet… because I’ve been too busy using my words elsewhere. Once that works, and after the commercial is out (and shared with you all ;) ) we will hopefully proceed with the other project. I will only leave you with this… Project “Storm-bound” will be my next big thing.

Days, months and years of obsessive thoughts storming in my head have finally been trapped inside three hundred and forty pages. The new installment in the Psychs series is finally out online, and I will release it, hopefully soon, locally where I live too.
So what does the second book has to offer? Well… Here is the blurb. And to have a better understanding of how the story will be told, you can have a sample taste of my new adventure through any of the online stores of your choosing. I hope it will leave you wanting more, for I will be glad to share my stories with you.
With no more options to venture through, Hassan will be left with only one choice; to flee and start up a new life, leaving all the ties that have braced his entire being. But some ties are too tight, when severed; it will change his balance and force him back to face a tragedy.
Following his leads, Hassan will find himself roaming the streets of London for reprisal. Even with eight spirits by his side, which are connected to him by the tragic event of his birth, he will feel outnumbered, going against the Minerva Group and its limitless arsenal of agents and brutes. Hassan will desperately try his best to stay out of their reach until he finds a way to cut his losses short.
But being too deep in the belly of the beast, he may end up losing more; his life, or even worse… his sanity.

Yes, it’s been too long now ever since I started pouring gas on that spark I called Iblis, the second book in my series, which can stand alone on its own. July was supposed to be the date, and guess what… it still is.
The second book in the Psychs series will be released in a blink now. So today, other than giving a shout out, I wanted to post some previous materials like the youtube videos I’ve posted and the book cover, just to refresh my blog and to give some new readers an idea about what is to come.
Once there was a man, child at heart, but old geezer was his ways. Playful at the quad, teaser to the young ones around. He was Liked by many, but loved by few. And one night led to a morning, wide awake now, he cried at a reflection that was not in his image. Not able to bear the ugliness of what he sees, he runs and runs, in hopes that he will magically disappears. Wasted wishes won’t do, so a change of site may bring him some peace through the day’s dew. With war at his mind, he decides to alter his structure, hoping that in the end, he may alter that picture. Fearsome at view, but most importantly, quieter will get the viewers.
Building his rage as he tries to pickup his pace, he found himself running towards a child that leaks. Eyes red as flame, watery as the toddler speaks.
“Lost from my father and brother, cannot find one another”. shaky his words were, he explained to the man his dilemma. abandoning his quest to change his might, he opened his heart, for the kid in white. Cheering him up as they reduced the distance’s space, challenging him every couple of yards for a race. Laughing now, he spots his father and brother, smiling as they see us laugh with each other.
The man realized as he left them, that it is by the heart and not the might you can change one another.
So… that’s pretty much what had happened. I have experienced sadness from what I see on TV. I lived abroad but I still have roots from where I was originated from. And every time I look at the news, I feel those roots are being severed. With talks of ISIS expanding, I sought to build up stamina, ending up facing a child who helped me see things better. As the great Gandhi said, ” Be the change you want to see in the world.”
I am still writing and my upcoming works are my ways to change the world… well, at least change a single child, so he or she might remember that there is still goodness in this world when they grow old.
