I collect to create a mystery…

It is sometimes a good self practice to go back to your primitive origin, if one is to start his or her soul searching, then following its roots will help jog ones mind to reach awareness. That is why I go camping to find comfort in the wilderness away from the redundant and mind numbing comfort of the city. It is a good meditation for both the mind and the soul trapped inside the body. And sometimes finding a small object can lead to an imaginative glimpse into the future.

I found this key buried in the sand, greenish rust covered it’s secrets and it was obvious that it has been lost for a long time. It gave me so many questions, thus it became an object of interest. And what is interesting for me belongs inside the chest.

IMG_3426.JPG

This is where I keep my memories, my first letter, an old mix tape I created, my first girlfriend… Her picture not the actual girl… My first… Well you get the picture. This is a chest that carries a weight, and one day it will be off and out in the open when I’m buried deep down… Hopefully not before I’m dead. So I started to imagine the numerous things, some which would be embarrassing, but then I started to imagine what ideas would that key give? First of all… Will there be keys in the future… Will my grandkids look at it and think “What’s this for? Does it have WiFi?”. Will it become an artifact? Should I start spending everything and depend on that key to be the… Well, key to their salvation? After I abandoned the cheap ideas, I started to concentrate on thoughts with a slightly higher budget.
So here they are, looking at that key, thinking there is some secret room I have kept away from them. Do I have some treasure out there? Is it the key of my first home? My first car? What did it mean to me? Those are the kinds of questions I’d like to leave behind for my generations, items that proves I have a history, no matter how vague it could be.


My Tribute to Leonard Nimoy…

This is a drawing I made inspired from some of the iconic roles played by Leonard Nimoy.

Live long and prosper.

See You At The… COOOOOOOOOOONN!!

So we all know now what I have been up to lately with my story telling journey. But to where should my voyage takes me… to what frontier? These are the voyages of my Writing Enterprise… where I get to explore my ideas… and try to bring them to where no one has gone before. But then I realized that I should go to where everyone has gone actually, preferably in a place where they like to go to every year.comic con

Comic Con Dubai will be the birth place of my new comic series, Team Genesis, after settling in the wombs of my thoughts for almost a year, it can finally be delivered to the world.

This year, William Shatner, Karl Urban, Kelly Hu, Caitlin Glass and many other celebrities among great artists like Des Taylor, Tula Lotay, Claudio Castelliniwho together will shine their stars upon the convention, where all dreams are weaved into reality and everyone gets to experience those dreams for a while and become his or her own persona.

So here how things will be, I will be presenting two issues at the Comic Con Dubai convention, along with the first two books of the Psychs series. Also, in appreciation of all the great effort Comic Con Dubai is bringing to us story tellers, and in dedication for the recently departed Leonard Nimoy, I prepared a gift that will only be revealed at the convention when the day comes. So, if you happen to be at Dubai attending one of the biggest conventions in the world, I would love it if you could pass by and see what I got to offer… you can’t miss my booth… trust me on that ;)

Author Interview: A. H. Amin, Author of the Psychs Series

ahamin:

Drop in and learn what goes on inside this fuzzy big jar on my neck – also known as my head – through this interesting interview at Kelsey Ketch’s Nook.
Happy reading. :)

Originally posted on Ketch's Book Nook:

Today, I am honored to feature an interview with author A. H. Amin, author of the Psychs Series!

A. H. Amin was born in Iraq, and he had lived most of his life in Kuwait. He studied dentistry in Emirates in his first years and then he continued in Egypt.

He had first came across to his talent when he had met a group of students in Emirates who were discussing the making of a movie. After seeing how his ideas had impressed them, he started to take a little intrest in literature.
He started finally after he came up with the idea of a new fiction thriller book, Psychs, which was his first published book, after he received good criticism about his new idea.

At present he continues to write the Psychs’ series and planning for the next one.

Shall Tease No More…

It is said that there are two ways the universe can really tests you… either through having nothing happening to you, or everything at once. It shows what kind of a person you are, let’s you know what is missing from you, and gives you the option to choose what do about it. I have mentioned lately that I had just recovered from my lung infection, breathing normally had never felt more luxurious to me, but during my days of despair, I worked on preparing a new idea that did not belong to my usual and known medium, which consist of housing those thoughts inside the warmth covers of a novel book. My new idea will not be a tease anymore, and today I will reveal not only what the idea is… but also a big news about that idea…. all that will be revealed in my next post… just kidding… maybe… we’ll see… so, here we go.

I have been working on a new series for a comic book, and as any other work, the logical action taken after having the idea is making the fantasy into reality. I have searched for artists to help me make the day dreams I had on paper to be visible, artistic and… well, comicky (if that’s a real word). I sadly did not find anyone close-by who is willing to do the work. Drawing approximately 180-250 images per issue is something of a bother that many would consider twice before agreeing to make, especially since the author in question is doing a comic book for the first time. I was having two tests at once, fighting an illness, and fighting my way through the comic books’ scene. So, eventually… I decided to do what I will reveal in the next post…. still kidding.

Confined inside my room, I taught myself how to draw, I viewed a lot of tutorial videos on youtube… though they usually confused me, here’s why…

10731931_293804967482391_2053564212_n

I eventually learned to some extent how to show a story through drawing. And so, my story telling methods had leveled up, my new upgrade is now realized.

And so… with no further ado… I present to you… Team Genesis… my new comic book series.

cover post

Humanity’s lives have always been prone to change, and when a powerful being comes into existence, the world order is reformed. Three kinds of divisions have became known.  Some worshiped that being as their new divine king, and he was called by the name he gave for himself; Seth. Others hide and stay out of his and his army’s way, paying for their safety, living in fear from his wrath. But others… fewer as they are becoming, are still leading the fight against him and his D.S. (Devil’s seeds). But whenever the odds shift to their advantage, Seth comes in and brings them to their knees… right before he brings their heads to the ground.

Team Genesis is the story of a team that will try to find out the origin of the being Seth, in hopes of finding a way to stop him. But in order for that to happen, Team Genesis must be formed first. this is the story of the person who made the final cut into that team.

Here are some of my works from Issue 1…

The Very Inspiring Award…

This is a very belated post that I have been trying to take a part in, but when you read the post to follow, all will be clear. My very kind and one of my favorite bloggers have graciously nominated me for having a very inspiring blog. To know that what you do and what you are trying to spread within the sea of writers and bloggers are not going by unnoticed, and that they are being appreciated is the greatest gift I can get, and for that, I thank you with the bottom of my heart, Ol’ Big Jim. :)

award

So Let’s talk rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link to their blog.
  2. Display the award logo.
  3. Nominate at least 15 other blogs and provide a link where they may be found. Then go to their blog, leave a comment to let them know they’ve been nominated, and where to find the information they need to accept (rules).
  4. Mention three things that inspired you the most during the past few weeks.

First of all, I have to say, that the third rule is one of the reasons I almost decided not to participate, because I honestly been away from blogging for far too long and I have been reading fewer posts than usual. But even though, giving credit to the few is better than not giving credit at all. I would like to congrats those out there who also have been a big inspiration to me and I would like to nominate them as a way of encouragement, a way to say “Keep up the great work, I love what you are doing.”

1- Kelsey Ketch. She has always supported everyone who are trying to have their voices heard. She kindly provides the chances any author would like to have, she is a true supporter of her fellow writers… and her debated novels are just what I am waiting for after I have read all the reviews of Daughter of Isis, and Son of Seth.

2- Paula Acton. Her blog has brought delight to me on many occasions, but what she does outside her blogging world is in fact inspiring. She had helped in participating in the fund raising for a Hospice so that the building would provide the needs of the patients and also the needs and comfort of the family who can very often be spending hours daily at the hospice. The world needs more kind people, and I would like to give my appreciation today to one at least.

3- Yi-Ching Lin. If inspiration has an eye, it would surely be resting on the hands of one of my favorite photographers. Her images are really inspiring, with each view Yi-Ching witnesses its effect first hand through her beautiful words she associate with each picture.

4- Indira. A poetic blog, inspiring to all senses, and to the soul. She shares her poems and her own vision of India, and it is really heart warming. She a keen reader and I love how much she encourages posts that inspires her.

5- Jordan. A single mother with two beautiful daughters and a good writer. What she is doing a truly inspiring to women out there.

 

Now here are the three things that have gave me hope, made me smile, and thank god I am alive now.

1- My nephew, the one I love the most, was diagnosed with a case of mild autism. My brother, his dad, and my nephew’s mother were sad, and they lost hope. They did not know how to deal with him and how to control him. I had to be there for the little kid, me and his grandmother have done our best for him… and now… he had recovered. Three tests and they all say that he had recovered. He is talking more, looking at our eyes and understands what we want from him. He is now three years old. His recovery that followed our very excruciating work inspired me to say that everything is possible.

2- I have been planning to create a new comic book, something that is different than my usual medium in story telling, since I have only published books. I have been searching for an artist to help me but I couldn’t find one. Eventually, it was that setback that helped me see it through. I started to teach myself how to draw, and eventually. Here I am… with a new comic book about to be published, along with a new book.

3- Last week I got interviewed. The reason why I mention that is because the questions I had to answer had really reminded me why I started writing. I sometimes forget how it felt like, but when I had that interview, it really opened my eyes, and encouraged me to keep going forward.
