My First Two Weeks As A Science Fiction Author

Two weeks ago, my debut sci-fi novel, "Dawn of Legaia" was released into the wild. Since then, it has made its way to the far corners of the U.S., Hawaii, and if I'm not mistaken, exists in digital format in Canada, too. It's been a busy two weeks, but no busier than most of the literary tasks I engage in. Especially editing. Some folks have even finished reading Dawn of Legaia already, and I'm getting a huge kick out of hearing their thoughts. Their feedback is particularly great because till now, feedback had come from drafts, and not a "final product". Readers responses range from good to great, and even Kirkus had some relatively decent things to say about my book. I did 5 drafts of this

"Dawn of Legaia" Is Officially Live!

Interesting how you can work on a project on and off for nearly six years, and yet, as one chapter of your life is coming to a close, another is just beginning. The Scorpio in me has a one-track-mind. I'm surprised I still have a roof over my head! But tonight is a special night. Satisfying. Empowering. Delightful. For those I've had to put on the backburner, I wish there were more of me. Several family members of mine have passed away between when I started work on this project and now. I've had to make tough choices regarding how to spend my time. My energy. Those closest to me (one woman in particular) have had to struggle along with me. Juggling a day job, relationships, along with artis

One Week Left!

I feel like I'm in some sort of twilight zone or something. I'm going to have a published sci-fi novel out there in a week, floating around in cyberspace. Whoa... 7 days goes quick. Real quick. I've done my due diligence as doingly as doable. I'm definitely excited, and that adrenaline is probably counteracting a lot of the exhaustion I would otherwise be feeling. I did just return from 10 days of vacay in Baltimore and West Palm Beach, and that's probably helping tremendously as well. But here's the deal: Dawn of Legaia is a near-future sci-fi coming of age story, with elements of a hundred different things. Cyberpunk, Biopunk, Nanopunk, Cheesecakepunk, you name it. 5 n a half years of lite

Movie Review: X-Men: Apocalypse

On my flight home from holiday travels, I decided I'd rather watch a flick than stare at clouds for four hours. On the menu was an overpriced cheeseburger, and X-Men: Apocalypse. I'll be the first one to admit that I've completely last track of some of these franchises. The first ones that come to mind are the X-Men and Transformers movies. I can't remember which ones I've seen or how many of them there are, and as far I'm concerned, that's not a good sign. But since Doctor Strange wasn't available till Feb., (I really wanted to see it in theatres, in IMAX 3D, but got around to it just a tad-bit late) my next best option was the latest X-Men movie, and in the grand scheme of things, it did n
