Story-viewer (Loving Vincent)

I am the tomb-raider of reviewers; I search for hidden gems that deserves more appreciation. Today I will be talking on my youtube channel about a movie that not only has an interesting and a thought provoking mystery, but also was done in a uniquely creative way and wonderfully enough to be called a modern ninth world wonder. “Loving Vincent”.

(The review has English subtitle, so I hope you will get to enjoy it and most importantly be motivated to watch the movie)

The world did not end, and so did not my thriller…

My thriller, Psychs, have been released by my new publisher in e-book format. The reason why I started that way was simple, whenever you go to a bookstore two things a book can capture you with, first the cover… check (Top Ten Book Covers Of The Year 2012), the second thing is what it says on that cover itself, i.e. Reviews.


This year was a blessing for me, I can’t see the humor in the Mayan’s joke about the end of the world. My book have received positive reviews so far, I even created a new page on my website for those reviews too, from a literary magazine, from authors, from customers and from bloggers. Now, those reviews should be where it belong, on and inside the book.

So that’s why I decided to announce that my thriller, Psychs, will be soon available in Paperback format on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and many other online sellers. And with the new cover smeared with reviews on it, it will be available and more noticeable in bookstores too.

I am standing on the threshold of the next year’s door, and leaving 2012 with good memories and the sense of accomplishments, even though they were little, because the important thing is, I’m moving forward and away from my starting point.

I’ll be revealing more from my book, so next time, be prepared, because I will be revealing some new stuff about my characters and my thriller that, in a way, I have never revealed before. Until then, enjoy your last week of 2012, and have a great holiday.

Kirkus review of my thriller, Psychs…

Click to view the full review

It’s finally out and in the open. A positive review of my thriller ‘Psychs‘ from Kirkus Reviews, one of the world’s most reliable reviewers. I really loved what they said about my book, the only negative they mentioned did not originate from the story itself, but from some mistakes that managed to pass by my editor.

It was a short review for most of the article went into explaining the jest of the story with no spoilers to be leaked out. Here’s what Kirkus had said about me and my thriller that I found interesting:-

‘Amin, a screenwriter, includes fantastic, sometimes gory action sequences fit for film.’

‘Jumping around in the flashbacks can be somewhat jarring, but it’s used effectively enough to allow readers to fully understand the history and motives driving Hassan and Adam.’

‘Action-packed tale of beyond-the-grave good vs. evil.’

The words (Rough-hewn) were used and they were a negative but the positive counteracted it.

Another thing I would like to share with you all is my recent interview at ‘Paranormal Book Club‘. It was a really nice and entertaining conversation. Feel free to drop by and hear what I had to say for their questions (Also by clicking the picture below).
