What have I been up to recently…

“Easy reading is damn hard writing” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Today and every previous day I am polishing what I wrote so I can present them in the best desirable form for avid readers. I am working hard so I can release (hopefully) three titles this year; Psychs 1st, which is a short story and a spin off from the Psychs series that tells the story of young Hassan’s visit to the United States in an effort to put closure to the 7 ghosts who are connected to him, by visiting their families and give them letters with a fake story of how he got those letters, only to discover that he is there to do more than that, and probably to try and survive.
My second finished work is Kima, a short inspirational story about a true event that occurred in South Africa in 1928, following the old Kima who tells an unbelievable story to young Alice and Alex, and they will learn so much from this fantasy story… Or is it a fantasy?
And last but surely not least, Iblis, the second novel of the Psychs series… This one I’m not revealing more than two things. First, Iblis is Arabic for ‘Devil’, and second, here’s a look inside the prologue.

Now I know why…

I knew there was a logical explanation to why I wake up with a messy hair.

Have a good one everyone.

What’s real is not…

This is true… And you know what that means? It means that physical reality is basically an illusion… We are all fictional characters, created in this fantasy world and we are living our adventures.
So live your lives with a purpose, act as the protagonist you already are.

It’s my birthday… So here’s my surprise

Today I pass again through the thresholds of the door that brought me to this world for the 28th time, maybe more if you believe in reincarnation. It was a day that I have been waiting for, not to be showered with gifts, but to share a surprise that I have been holding for far too long.
I have mentioned a surprise I have stored for you before, when I talked about Kima, my new inspirational novel. I mentioned it quickly so I can be discreet about it until the day I open the lid on it and spill it out for everyone; it was a Psychs related news, and it was not related to the second book, Iblis. So here’s a picture that says it all.

Psychs 1st is a short story that follows Young Hassan, the U. S. military ghosts and the spirit of his mother to a trip to the United States.
After giving their lives to save Hassan’s while he was still in the womb, they became connected to his existence, well, only eight spirits did. That sacrifice gave him gifts, knowledge, protection and most importantly, a life… Or lives. So as a way to show them his gratitude, he decides to go to the United States of America to deliver messages to the ghosts families… But what he will find there could cause him his life, and the life of one of the ghosts family member.
Psychs 1st will be shared online here and on my other social network sites, for free. It is after all a gift from me to you.

And my recent favorite… A private message from my pre-release readers after reading the second book of the Psychs series

Everyone should know that The Remnant will be changed into Iblis later on, and the final modifications are not far away from completion.
