Back Baby BACK


After a hard year and some setbacks my publisher is back. I must say that I lost hope there at the end but before I did anything stupid my publisher is back. I am actually very happy now.
This publisher is providing you all with my fantasy series Amber Light with the first book in the series Memories up and on their site. The second book is not far behind I hope since that has passed the vexing stages. Book three is on my table being edited and book four is being written. It is a five book series and will be done for you all to enjoy. Now without further adieu here is :

Amber Light Memories

The time is now. The place is Japan. Mark is living the only life he knows or can remember. He does not spend any more time away from his box-like apartment than is needed. There was always the fear that he might miss the lifestyle that he chose for himself. That is about to change. It all is about change because of her. After a long time, he has found love again—or is it the same love? All he knows is that Masumi has the eyes that he yearns for. Masumi also comes with a past that she herself does not even know. The world is about to unravel to show what lies behind this natural world we think we know. Memories kicks off the Amber Light series in a way never done before. Dive into this story head-first for the world where everything is what it is…unless it isn’t what is it. Follow the lives of these two young lovers as they piece together the happiness that we all strive to have.

Sweatshops are good


Many people just say sweatshops are wrong without doing any actual research. Learn something before you talk.

I see you there talking

you speak loud so all can hear

yet when it is my turn to speak

you quietly disappear

how dare you ignore me

how dare you shun me

how dare you use the words I write

you do this all in spite

in spite of the friendship that could be built

bury that knife of neglect to the hilt

my heart can take it

but soon enough another will read me, will share me

soon enough another will give me wind and you will see

that while you passed me over and did not share me

I was still able to be free

And at that time I will leave you

I tell you know so you will know

It was not for what I did not read but what you did not show

What it takes


In an attempt to not be the spam blogger but also find a balance with what I share the line has become very clear. So here I am sharing with you what it takes to get a rise out of me. What you need to have in order for me to like something, reblog something, comment on something.

Liking something.
I find it fun to like things. Even things that I know bother me but the fact that someone put it up and caused my brain to think about it, no matter how much I hate it or love it. I will like it. Posts that make me think are fun to run into. But that is as far as I will go. I will like it because it made me think.

Commenting on something

I comment on things when I feel strongly about the topic. When I want to bring attention to something or when I feel that there has been a violation. It does not matter to me that I may offend, insult, or basically make someone cry. I could care less. I am commenting my opinion and my thoughts from the research that I have done throughout my life. I do not apologize for what anyone else thinks about the words that I type. I work with words daily, in my writing, in my teaching, in my life. Which is why looking back through my posts I tell people to read, reread, and then read again to what I stated, as to often than not the misunderstanding is that the individual did not read or did not comprehend my words.  But back to the topic at hand. I comment on things that draw me in. And no, it does not have to be words. Pictures, video, heck even a good title has gotten me to read it and make a comment.

Reblogging

I reblog friends that talk to me. That means if we interact with comments the more that I will reblog you. I do not reblog everything as there would be not much time for my own posts to get noticed. I do reblog others more than some but this is due to the fact that some people post more blogs and make a larger signal. But still there must be that line of communication for me to reblog. If we have talked if we have even crossed paths on a post somewhere and started to follow the chances are I will reblog your stuff. Talking helps folks.

Do I expect you to reblog me. I would like it, to that extent I will not lie. But no it is not an expectation. Still the more I reblog someone I do hope they take notice of it and decide that some of my works deserve the notice to be reblogged, commented on and liked. On an interesting topic, my words are mine and if I insult you, treat you like crap, or all in all tell you to fuck off, it is not the responsibility of the post hoster, if I am doing a guest post, or mine. Should you know me then you would understand that I do not insult, treat people like crap, or tell people to fuck off unless they deserve it. And nothing is more deserving than talking BS, trying to tell me or anyone else to change the way they behave because it offends your sensibilities.
When it comes to comments on faith, spirituality, religious matters, I default to my atheistic position. Bring me proof, verifiable, falsifiable, and testable by anyone, anywhere in the world.

When it comes to science, medicine, engineering, theoretical or not, bring me recent published papers from peer reviewed magazines.

If it is just a discussion you want then that is fine. And the final note, just because I do not agree with you is not the reason that I may insult you. Agreement or disagreement on a topic is not enough. So think clearly and post clearly. It is the only way we can keep blogs from degrading to the twitter world where everyone just starts spamming and following for the simple fact of getting more views.

Getting followers is nice but if you have 10000 followers but only 10 views per day, then there is something wrong.

Free Book Promo as the second in a series awaits release


Brotherhood Amber Light Series Volume 2 will be on Amazon in about 12 hours or so. Here is a shot of the cover. The paperback will be available in a week.

Check out book 1 in the series as it is free now.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007J37RFC

It is a fantasy book dark in nature. The magick used through the book is more wicken vs the traditional Harry potter stuff. The book is character driven vs the spoon fed stuff that is handed out by the big corps. I hope you enjoy it.

Brotherhood Amber Light Series Book two cover Contest


Had to add cover three above cause the pros were complaining that my previous two covers were not up to the challenge.  So welcome cover 3 to the right and final cover design for voting to the left.

You can vote here as well as on facebook or on Google plus through my contact page.
Here is the first of the pictures

Cover 1

Here you have the first of the covers. It is a bit dark but as you can see the mage and the crystal ball bring a bit from the last book and showcase the magical fantasy that is this series. There is also the darkness about the tone of my book which the beta readers have told me is rather good. So I wanted some of those tones.


Cover 2

As you can see in book cover attempt two here I have reeled back the brotherhood to being more dark and mysterious. I have left the magic aspect of the crystal ball. I want it there now that there is a greater view of the use of magic in the series. Book one was not all cast and run as some books are. And though there is more magic in this text it is still in keeping with the world I have created. While book one is more about the discovery which really opens up to this second text nicely.

Please fill free to vote for cover one or cover two. Also you can ask your friends to vote as well.
You can find the first in the series at this link: Memories (Amber Light Series, Volume 1)  catch up on your reading because the beta readers have stated this second installment will take you to places you never knew a fantasy novel could go.
