So, with the release of Remembering Avedik and the completion of Silent Requiem, I am now up to five books. Between all five, that’s roughly 459,000 words, or 1508 pages. When I first started in the December of 2013, I had no idea of what I was doing nor could I imagine having written five books some three-and-a-half years later.
But here I am, and the train isn’t stopping. This week I will begin on my 6th, my long awaited scifi romance. I’m particularly excited with this one because its such a contrast to my other fiction works, and I get to play around with a contemporary setting. It’s been in my head for so long that I can’t wait to dig in.
‘Til next time.
To clarify after today’s announcement, Remembering Avedik is currently available for preorder on ebook only. I am working on getting the physical version available, however, it’s a different and longer process.
Expect both versions to be available and announced sometime later this week.
In honor of the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Remembering Avedik: The True Story of a Genocide Survivor is available for preorder. It is a memoir of my great grandfather who almost met death a bunch of times during the Armenian Genocide. It comes out on May 22nd, and you can preorder it here
I’m very grateful to have been able to write his story. It’s important to remember your roots and I learned a lot about my family.
‘Til next time.
So I heard about this pilot of one of Amazon’s potential shows called Oasis. It is part of a group of shows that will have seasons ordered if they do well enough. Anyway, I heard some nice things about it and it has one of my favorite actresses, Antje Traue, so I decided to take a look.
Not only will fans of scifi and space travel get a kick out of it, but so too will people who enjoy watching characters who feel alive. There’s plenty of emotion in just the pilot. The scifi behind it is done respectfully, and the way they handle space travel and the assumed effects that it would have on the mind was awesome.
There’s plenty of heart here, both when it comes to the characters and scifi. It also has a religious aspect to it that intertwines well with the science. The ending leaves you hanging with some interesting mystery. Did I mention that it has Antje Traue in it? Anyway, I give it 5/5. Def worth a watch.
It was a late night, but I hit it hard and managed to finish the rough draft of Silent Requiem. It stands at a solid 124,000 words. Anyway, I’ll be editing and preparing it for its release later this year.
I am also on the verge of finishing the memoir, so stay tuned for some great news this monday.
And even beyond that, it’s time to start on my kaiju, pizzolatto-esque romance/erotica. *rubs hands in giddy anticipation*
‘Til next time.
For those who don’t know, The Promise just came out in select theaters. It is the story of the Armenian Genocide. It stars Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, and Charlotte Le Bon Go watch it!!!
Rejoice all, for I have just passed 120,000 words in Silent Requiem and am nearing the finish line! I can’t wait for y’all to have it in your hands.
‘Till nex time.
