Harvest Nights

It’s been a year since I released a new book. People might say it’s because I got married this year, but it’s actually because I was busy with my movie “Callous” which I released on Amazon Prime, my comic book “The Epics of….” (Oh wait I’m not suppose to reveal the real title of my comic until the last issue from Part 1), moving along, and I was busy with…. you know what I can’t even mention this one either…. so yes I’ve been busy, but now I have a chance to get back to book publishing. The beginning of our new decade will see the release of my new Horror Novella, “Harvest Nights”, a Lovecraftian horror inspired by Native American myths in Colonial Times. It will be one of those books with sketches at the end of each Chapter. To be honest it is not easy to draw a creepy sketch, but I am beginning to get the hang of it. This sketch isn’t over though so no judging.

2020 will be an insane year for us.

The Age Of Women

It took me a while to send my greatest wishes for the women of the world because I celebrated women’s day with my world, my mother. Women have come a long way, and they were able to do so through inspiring perseverance which was highly infectious. So much so that eventually men couldn’t be immune to their success and be inspired by them. And that is what I would like to talk about today, about the woman who inspired my new book.

You hear about women from all over the world from different countries who have managed to rise and find their purpose in the world, but My muse was someone who did not belong to any country, a displaced person with no nationality, flavored by the cultures she was exposed to throughout her life. A great recipe for an artist. Except she is much more than that.

Oh how rude of me… Here I am listing characteristics for someone I admire and I haven’t even introduce her to you all. Well allow me to break the ice.

Introducing Enas. We met during my studies in Egypt. The first thing that made me take an interest in her story is when I tried to find out where she was from. It even made me think, “What makes you belong to a place?”. She was born in Iraq to a Palestinian family, and her first childhood memories were in Hungary, but she never had a passport from neither nations, just a travel document, which at the time was more than enough. But life throws curve balls every once in a while. For Enas, that curve ball was the Iraq war. She found herself with no country. So how was she able, in spite of all that, to become a dentist, a triathlete, and an inspiring artist living in the United States? Her story touched me in many ways, and I’m very honored to have her blessing to write her story.

The Last Mile is the title of our next book and I wrote it to celebrate a woman among the blossoming women who managed to lift our spirits and to remind us to never stop thriving for what we believe.

Join me next where I will be asking Dr. Enas some questions. Do you have anything you’d like to ask Enas or me? Please don’t hesitate to ask.

Where do I go from here?

It took me two months to get back to writing my thoughts. Usually I write what my characters are thinking or how they feel in the books that I’m writing, so I might be rusty when it comes to writing about someone you starting to feel you don’t know anymore. For example, I never thought that I would be diagnosed with moderately sever depression. I always thought I was immune to something like that, especially since I’m the kind of person who lives an adventurous life. But that’s a post for another day. I’m here to talk about how 2018 had treated me, and to be honest, it was the best year of my life. I know… weird… one minute I’m mister Blue and now I’m talking about coming out from a magnificent year. Life is strange that way, I guess.

Every year I write about what have I accomplished in the year and post it at new year’s eve, except this year I was sent to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack, and on my way to the hospital I had my first ever panic attack. My fingers became so stiff I thought my whole body was going to become stiff too. My fingers loosened eventually when the doctor calmly told me to breath normally. My fingers became loose, but I couldn’t type on my keyboard what happened to me throughout the year 2018. So here I am today to do just that; to share what happy events that happened to me, and to remind myself of them.

Here goes.

 

I have written, produced, filmed and directed my first movie ever. Oh and I also composed the music for the film… special effects… did I mention that I did the special effects too?? So yeah maybe you’re all starting to get why I might be depressed. 😀

Here’s what you can learn…

 

We all crave for a good tale; searching for a portal to take us out of this world and hope we end up somewhere inspiring. This is how it started with my tale, Kima. One day in 2009, I was still a student with hopes and dreams and so many shapeless tales living within me. I casually went online to check my email. That’s when I came across to an article about beached whales in South Africa; which some might know as “Death Stranding”. On that day, I read the article and I came across something that puzzled me. The article mentioned that this started first in South Africa on Christmas Eve, 1928. This sparked my curiosity and made me think about why it happened? Who was there? How did it affect the people; to see something like that for the first time? A story started to take form, and I was already working on my first novel “Psychs” at the time. So, I did some research about life in 1928, South Africa, to see if I’ll get some good materials for my story. And that’s when I came across to something that might be the reason why whales go out from the sea. That day, and three rewrites later, have brought us to this moment, where a folk tale is now making its way out one reader at a time. goodreadlasttest-1

I’m writing today to present some of those readers who happened to have enjoyed the story and the message I am trying to spread throughout the world. Here is what you can learn about my dimension, my portal to fantasy that is based on reality and real experiences. I hope you can visit and support that message, and help spreading Kima, an inspirational light  tale with a heavy message.

A New Christmas Read… Kima

goodreadlasttest-1

Christmas Eve 1928 gave birth to a yearly phenomenon in South Africa. A herd of false killer whales were found beached upon the shore. It has also given birth to the story of two young children who meet an old woman named Kima. Kima somehow knows why this has happened, but that’s not all she knows. The children, Alex and Alice, realize that there is more to this woman that what meets the eye, and ear. She will reveal to them a tale, a mysterious story she claims was passed on to her by a mythical Black Seagull.
Derived from both historic tales and figures, Kima is a fictional character portrayed in a way that makes her become real.

 

Kima is a 126 pages of inspirational fantasy, and now it is only a click away. Here are some of the pre-release reviews to let you know more and pave the way towards the book.

A New Christmas Read…

It’s seems like it was only yesterday when I celebrated the new year’s eve, but here we are now, at the threshold of a new chapter in our lives. This year has probably moved light years ahead for me because it was my busiest year yet. And it will soon about to become more interesting.

My inspirational fantasy novella, Kima, is now set to be released soon around the end of November and the beginning of December. This novel have been in rewriting inferno for a tremendous time. Passing through purgatory now, Kima will soon shine out and be available publicly and only clicks away too.

There will be more to reveal in the coming future, all I could say is that this is an inspirational novel that I had extreme joy and pleasure writing it. I hope in the very upcoming future I will get to share the experience and hope we can learn something from my inspirational fantasy novella.
