Disturbed: The Sound of Silence


I have been a fan of Disturbed for years, my family is a tad bewildered I go for the sound. Confession: I love music. Any music—except rap. Hate rap. The classics are at the top of my list but my major weakness is for distorted voices from rock  like that of David Draiman. It helps that he's such a a gorgeous man.

The Men and Dragon Behind The Royal Guardian

I posted the announcement of The Royal Guardian getting published, and it is. The release date is December 18th. As excited as I was, I completely forgot to 'show' who inspired me to write about Kallen, Lando and Bobik.

Well, Lando and Kallen were inspired by these two images:

Lando on his return to his home planet 
(I saw this in DeviantArt but could not figure out who did this amazing artwork. I thank the artist, whoever you are.)

And then, there is Bobik. 

The Royal Guardian is dedicated to Bobik, an Aussie sweet, little reptile who really does exist.

Aka Bobik the Bobtail (aka Teliliqua Rugosa rugosa)

Who is Bobik? Where in my story Bobik is referred to as male, massively powerful and a bit of a jester, in truth, she is a sweet and manipulative little reptile that could. She is the sweetest lizard (I'm a dog person okay!) who loves snails, bananas and yogurt. She loves to cuddle up to her momma in bed (I don't think it's really love? More like, she seeks the warmth?) and at times, the house cat who tolerates her diva-ness.

She is pet and baby of a good friend and author: Mahlee Ashwynne who is also featured in this story as the irascible Doctor Candor.

Here are some adorable pics of the dragonette that could.

We Have A Date!

September 13th I posted Royal Guardian: Short Story for Anthology Contract Signed. Well, we have a date! 

Friday, December 17, 2015. (Do mark your calendars)

It will be published under Wayward Ink Publishing Men In Uniform Anthology. Mine is not the only one in it, it is an anthology after all and there will be about eight stories written by eight (ahemahem) incredible authors. I am just glad the date is finally set and can't wait to hear what you think of them.

Until then, ta ta! 

Do take a peek at some of the anthology book trailers  from WIP.

Hidden: Evils Contract Signed

I am so stoked! My longish novella, Hidden: Evils, the very first work I managed to pen and finish, has finally found home in Wayward Ink Publishing. I had played around with the story for years but left it to dust. Since 2013, to be frank. It began with discovering a journal I had kept  and misplaced. Moving to a new home involved a lot of new discoveries and in one box, I found the journal. I had written the story years before but it was so drafty I could not quite manage to finish reading it myself. It actually began as a general-fiction story but my main female character, she did not quite read right. Also, I truly imagined her as the main man not a woman.
