Sooner Than Ever…

Hello everyone!!

 

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.

The First Look At The Second Book Of The Psychs Series, Iblīs…

iblis book cover great

Click for actual size…

 

Iblis… the second book of the Psychs series. A fiction thriller that follows the story of a man named Hassan with eight ghosts by his side. Armed with their knowledge and strengthened with their help, he will use their ghostly features, and his many skills to have a chance at a personal score.

Here is the synopsis:

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.

Iblis (Arabic for Devil) is coming soon this summer. (Teaser video)

Here’s a short video, filtered from spoilers that explains the story of the first novel. (Previously on Psychs)

An Echo away from Omega…

 

So today is the big day… the jigsaw pieces are becoming whole, with only one missing till you can see the full picture. Alpha gave us a video that tells the first story of the series, then came Beta and Charlie to shed a light on the upcoming book and the time of release, and Delta explained the hidden meaning behind my title, Iblis (Arabic for Devil). So what is Echoing through this post?

I will tell you…

This is the last post before revealing the cover. So here we are, Ground-Zero… So before we commence later today, I hope everyone gets debriefed and read the previous posts.

– The Alpha post for the reveal week…

– Beta As It May…

– Charlie’s Bit my blog..

– Delta for Devil…

Delta for Devil…

 

Name your book Iblis (Arabic for Devil) and you are bound to summon THE topic. So why have a name represented evil shared by many religions, cultures and folklores became the same name given to my second book? Let’s go through the high way to Delta and see what light can it shed on Alpha, Beta and Charlie.

First things first, here’s a two minutes and so video that I have created to tell the story of the first book, spoilers free. Through that short presentation we will learn that both our protagonists are at ease and have reached to a point where they can take a short breath. What will happen next is caused by human nature… but funny thing about humans’ is they are always influenced, driven without being aware.

“The Devil is in the details” a quote that is still unknown to who it should be credited to… which gives it a stronger impact. Our human nature governed – and sometimes manipulated – by our brains tends to relate and connect; trying to piece up jigsaws until a picture is formed. That picture can sometimes lead to our own destruction.

This is why today I am about to share another part from what is to come. In the first book of the series, Psychs, I have written this in the beginning.

“Good and Evil has no passport; it wears many skins, speaks in different tongues, and exists everywhere… even in the same person.”

What will be the next installment from the Psychs series brings? Well, that is only a scroll away.

Charlie’s Bit my blog..

 

Today’s bit is about how timing can have a great and crucial role when it comes to sharing your work. The first post; Alpha, told with images and emotions the story so far; through a video that I have posted to open the door that will lead us towards the end of this week… which would be the prestige date for the book cover of my Devil… or as I have entitled it using one of the many names given to evil; Iblis.

And yesterday, the second… or should I say Beta post revealed one part of the cover; the written part which we readers go through so we can, to some degree, judge the book and check for reader-genre compatibility… which is known as synopsis.

“My only enemy is time” ~ Charlie Chaplin. This is true… but with any war there are rules of engagement, and time, my immortal enemy, you gave me… well, time to recuperate… The delays and the constant work in the clinics had pushed away the second installment in the Psychs series, and when something goes against your imagined agenda, you get to feel frustrated… well… I’ll say this again. God has three answers to prayers; Yes, Not now, and I have something better… I guess The last two applies to what my fingers are trying to say in today’s Charlie’s bit. Time is giving me a chance.

Iblis, the second book of the Psychs series, will become a new summer read… I am aiming for a June release, and a July release worldwide. It is the best time for me where I am since June, July, August and September are the holiday Inn months, and if there is a great timing for my voice to reach ears which are no longer busy, that would be it. And since the title is also Iblis (Arabic for Devil) I think the elevated degrees will set a good mood for the story ;).

So what will I write about tomorrow; the fourth post for the reveal week (Also known as Delta)? I will write about the reasons why I wrote the book, and why Iblis as a title in particular.

The Alpha post for the reveal week…

This is the starting post toward the Omega; the day where I will be revealing thousands of words trapped inside an image that represents my upcoming novel, Iblis (Arabic for Devil)… and since Iblis is not the starting point for the series, I am to reveal the Alpha book, Psychs… the first novel that started it all and lead me here to important and life changing ideas.

Today was intended to be one of those everyday TV shows cliché of “Previously on Psychs Series” Kind of read… or that’s how it supposed to be… but instead… I decided to make a movie out of it, giving my words a little music and some images to amplify the experience. So here we go.

 

 

 

With the second novel at the threshold of becoming a new summer read, entitled ‘Iblis’, it is only right to create a short movie explaining the story so far. No spoilers alert… I chose my words wisely.

For those who found this video intriguing and decided to get more involved with the series, here’s a link from book finder of most of the bookstores where Psychs is only clicks away in both paperback and e-book formats.

Please let me know what you think, and please share with those who might want to find a new read this summer.

You can see that I have placed some effort on it… future director in the making 😉

‘It begins!’

 

Hello everyone,

I have been eagerly waiting for this day for almost a year. Today I get to announce the great news.

Iblīs (book 2 in the Psychs series) is now in the first process of publishing. There are basically four:-
1- Editing and proof reading ; which is being carried now by my new editor in Chicago.
2- Reviews: my publisher, AuthorHouse, will send my book to three major reviewer establishments for pre-release reviews.
3- Designing: already have the great idea for that.
And…
4- THE release.

I am feeling more generous today, so I will share two more items from my agenda…
First: Iblīs is more story driven than Psychs; we met the characters in the first book, now, in addition of introducing new ones, Iblīs will be a big step and the spark to what is to come.
Second: I will share the prologue from the book through this link: Iblīs … It will give you a big hint to why the book is entitled Iblīs (Which is Arabic for Devil)

I am glad I have shared this great news with you all, my fingers are too tingly and eager to share more.

have a lovely weekend.
