Happy 1st Anniversary to “An Absolute Mind”!

If I feel that the calendar year of 2017 is moving at the speed of light, then you can only imagine how stunned I am that three days ago marked one year since I released my second novel, An Absolute Mind. It was conceived four years prior, and spent two and a half years in the making before being released out to the world, at the beginning of a turning point in history for the United States. Just to jog your memory as to what this novel is about, here is the synopsis: Continue reading

Special Wednesday Post: A Year of “An Absolute Mind”

It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since the release of my second novel, An Absolute Mind. It’s been on quite a journey since then, especially during this time of history we are in for the United States.

I will give a more in-depth reflection on it this Saturday. In the mean time, if you haven’t already, please go buy the book and if you’ve read it already, please leave a review somewhere. Also, as a reminder, tonight I’m doing a live reading of the first few chapters from the book on Instagram Live, so you have an account on there, then please tune in at 8:30PM PST.

I look forward to seeing some of you then.

Asian American Superheroes, Absolute Memory, and Colliding Worlds: A Month of Book Readings

Book readings: As emphasized in a blog post from earlier this month, they are the closest opportunities to seeing magic being conjured, the chances to bringing new minds into your universe, the moments of nostalgia of being read to as children, and the time to ask questions to the storytellers themselves. They are events I highly cherish both as an audience member and as an author, and throughout the month of July, I got to experience both sides of that. Continue reading

Loving Day and Busy Days (and a Surprise)

I’m not proud of the circumstance surrounding the development of this particular blog post, for I feel in this case scenario that I’m just putting something out there for the sake of putting something out there. However, I’m writing this to not only keep to my streak, but that there actually is something that I want to briefly touch upon.

First, let me clear the air when I say that even though it’s Saturday, I’m writing this a few days in advance. The past few days have been unbearably busy with reading “Raisin in the Sun,” work on a script, preparing material for my weekend tutoring job, work on a secret project, and waiting in between time for posthumous tunes to drop. Oh, and I have my first little sale going on for An Absolute Mind, in honor of Loving Day. Continue reading

Reflection: 6 Months of “An Absolute Mind” and My First Reading as an Author

This is not the world I had anticipated my second novel to be released in, but for several reasons, I am glad that it is in existence in this time that we are in now. I can’t believe it’s been just over six months since the publication of An Absolute Mind. The speed of time is something that I will never be able to digest properly, for it really feels like last week – if not yesterday – since I released this second work out into the world. Continue reading

From Within the Mind: Influences

In honor of the three months since An Absolute Mind came out, this month, I shall be doing a weekly series of behind-the-scenes glimpses at the process and the decisions made with the creation of the novel. Be careful for potential spoilers if you haven’t read it yet, and I hope you enjoy. (NOTE: While today is the last Saturday of the month, this isn’t the last post of the series. I have one more after this that will be released tomorrow.)
