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.

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.)

Special Sunday Post: “From Within the Mind”

So I have a little surprise for everyone. If you’ve been following this blog for the past few years or have been exploring it as of recently, then you may know how three months after I released my debut novel, A Moment’s Worth, I did a month-long series of blog posts called “Behind the Moments,” where I described behind-the-scenes details about the making of it. Well, seeing that February will be three months since I released An Absolute Mind, I’m going to do the same thing. Continue reading

Special Friday Post: “An Absolute Mind” Paperback Available EVERYWHERE!

Hey everyone! I hope those who have been reading An Absolute Mind so far are liking it. I can’t believe it’s already been two and a half weeks since its release, and I’m happy to come to you today with another announcement.

Up until recently, the only way to buy the paperback version of the novel was through CreateSpace and Amazon. Well, I am happy to announce that thanks to expanded distribution, it can now be bought from a multitude of other places now too for POD (print on demand), including Barnes & Noble! I’ve already checked out the websites for all the local bookstores in my area, and they all have it in their database. While it may vary depending on which store you look into and possibly by country as well, I think it’s safe to say at this point that there is a good chance you’ll find a chain that’s selling it somewhere.

So if you haven’t bought An Absolute Mind yet and want a physical copy, go nuts and go buy it. You’re not just limited to Amazon anymore!

Thanks for reading this special post, and I’ll be back tomorrow with my regular Saturday post.
