My first poetry book

It is something…

I never really let that joy become part of my life until I wrote Volume II. There was some magical driving force that travelled along with me when I wrote every poem.

I felt a sudden sadness,

Sometimes, it was sudden urge to fight,

Other times, it was sudden urge to roar back like never before,

The sudden numbness,

The sudden dull-ache in my heart,

The sudden gust of melancholy,

The sudden rush of happiness,

The sudden memory of abandoned soul

I increased my pace to write and believed in telling a story to the world. Every poem has a story of its won in “WINGS OF EMOTIONS VOL II” and it is very close to my heart and soul.

There is concept behind everything I wrote.

Grab your copy for just .99c and feel free to share your thoughts.

Book Reviews by me

Monster Squad: The Iron Golem by Christian Page

“What’s more fascinating than sinking into the world of books?” 

I have been reading books of all genres lately and this is one of those great reads.

Blurb:

Dark forces are converging on the sleepy town of Autumn’s Hallow. Monsters in the woods, mad scientists on the loose and sinister minions lurk. Four young friends must band together to uncover a secret plot that threatens them, the town they live in and the people they love. It’s up to Blaine Davis, Daschle Gaunt, Shelley Merry and Drake Harker, heirs to a fantastic collection of powers to stop an evil that threatens to consume the world. Can the Monster Squad thwart the evil Victor von Frankenstein in time? It will take friendship, courage and smarts to find out.

My Review:

This is one of the books that really got close to my heart somewhere down the lane these past few months. My nephew loved it and as an adult, I enjoyed reading Christian Page’s work. The articulation of characters and scenes is the driving force for the story to shape up so beautifully.  The story obviously has a monster that clearly reflects in the cover page itself; But, there is blend of humour and thrilling factor which keeps the readers engaged and definitely a page turner. I got this book as a gift from a friend and it turned out to be one of the most best in the genre I read.

Hope you will enjoy reading as much as I did.

Stay tuned for the author’s interview soon.

My first poetry book

WOE is doing well!!!!

Well, There is no tell-tale sign as to why your book is doing well in terms of reviews, sales etc…Leaving aside the usual bla bla bla, I am thankful to everyone who encouraged me constantly and kept me going..{Perhaps, I am being too modest..It is just within yourself as to how you would perceive and get going in the beginning when you aren’t even sure if your book is reachable}.

WOE IS DOING REALLY WELL AND CAN MAKE A PERFECT GIFT 🙂

Although WOE Vol I has always been among the “Amazon Best-Sellers list” in the Poetry Genre, It has never gone to the top 10.

It is ranked #4 in the Books – Literature & Fiction – Poetry – Themes & Styles – Nature

&

#39 among Kindle store – Kindle eBooks – Literature and Fiction – Poetry – Love poems

Why don’t you grab a copy of it and cuddle up with a cup of tea/coffee? I am sure you won’t be disappointed because my poems talk to you.

WOE VOL I

WOE VOL II is also available and it is among the Best-Sellers for just $0.99. You might enjoy a short read since it has only 30 poems.

WOE VOL II

Finally, leave a review if you read and like/dislike my book. I still love you 🙂

My Den

Authors Interviews

My Conversation with Author Sam Reese

Image

Tell us a little more about yourself?

Well, I live in Kingston, TN with my wife, 2 dogs, and a cat. We had a guinea pig, but sadly he passed away recently. I like reading, writing, movies, philosophy, religion, and going on adventures and exploring. I write horror and sci-fi/fantasy, although recently a friend told me I should write romance, but I don’t know. To me, romance is part of the story, and I like to think there’s some in my writing, but I’m not really interested in writing books with thinly-veiled innuendos or really terrible erotica.

Quickly, tell us about your upcoming releases?

Well, my novel “Immolation” was just released by J. Ellington Ashton Press. It’s a horror/supernatural thriller about a girl named Lydia whose father is a very wealthy man but who began abusing her at the age of 10. When she was 14, she found out about some latent pyrokinetic abilities. The story is about revenge, forgiveness, mercy, love, and the pieces we have to pick up when we fail.

Do you have any specific inspiring incident that turned you out as an author?

The book that made me realize I could be a writer was “Bag of Bones” by Stephen King. It was my first King novel, and I thought it was absolutely wonderful, but it almost made me think, “I could do this.” So I did. Along the way, Mr. King, Madeleine L’Engle, and Neil Gaiman, as well as a plethora of people who know who they are, helped me keep writing and pursuing a publishing contract.

Who designed your cover art? How did you choose the image?

Michael Fisher designed the cover, and what a great job he did! The idea I had was something akin to Samara from “The Ring” with fire in her eyes. Fish took that idea and really ran with it, making it even better.

Do you outline your work before you write?

I almost never outline. The best writing comes from letting the story tell itself. To me, writing is spiritual and I feel that I am an amanuensis for the characters within. They tell their story through me.

How do you like spending your leisure hours?

Reading, writing, watching movies, walking my dogs, going out on the boat and exploring. Lots of times, I imagine myself in some place like Middle Earth while I’m driving or on a boat. It helps me think and relax.

Which genre is far more appealing to you as a reader?

Horror and Sci-Fi/Fantasy. I read just about everything, but I spend most of my time in those sections of the bookstore.

What inspires you to write? Is there any level of similarity with the events or characters in your book and in reality?

To the first question, inspiration comes in a few forms. I usually have a dream, read a story or watch a movie or TV show, or I might see a picture. Sometimes it’s a turn of phrase. My muse shows up in the most unexpected places.

To the second question, there are some similarities, mostly in characters. Michael and Lydia in “Immolation” are kind of like two halves of me. The character Pablo, who owns the comic book store in Sherman’s March and is a very minor character is based on a friend of mine who also owned a comic book shop. Connie, Brittany, and Jessica are sort of an amalgamation of a few girls I went to high school with. Michael’s parents are somewhat my mom and stepdad. So there are similarities, yes.

Which is your current read?

I read about ten books at a time, but currently some of the things I’m working through are “Plebs” by Jim Goforth, “The Waste Lands” by Stephen King, “Dwarves” by Markus Heitz, “Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins, and about 6 or 7 more.

What, in your opinion is the toughest part while carving your book?

Sitting down and writing the thing. I don’t get writer’s block very much, but making time to write can be a chore for me. I think it is for anyone.

Share a word of advice with our readers and authors, if any?

Remember, everything you do is writing if you let it be. If you’re reading, you’re honing your craft. If you’re observing people, you’re building your characters. Whatever you’re doing, do it with the eye of a writer. And write good stories. The world needs them.

Share one of your favorites from your music band collection, if any?

Well, I love music, especially extreme metal. Hmm, let’s see. I guess I’ll go with “Volcano Girls” by Veruca Salt. I know it’s not extreme metal, but I really like the song and it makes me happy when I hear it.

If you’re a foodie, tell us about your favorite dish?

I’m not really a foodie, but I love steak and macaroni and cheese.

List any giveaways or surprises in mere future?

None at this time, although once my website is up and running there may be a few.
