15-FriendshipEnds-650x340

 

Experiencing loss is interesting – and not in the good sense.

 

What’s interesting about it is you can lose some of the most important things and/or people in your life, and it can cause you to think, “Ok, it can’t get worse than this.”

 

NEVER THINK THAT. You can ALWAYS lose more.

 

And sometimes that loss has nothing to do with death – it’s just that people change, they grow apart, or they just stop caring.

 

And here’s the thing: No matter how much YOU have changed, or grown apart – the actual end or cutting off of that thing or person is still incredibly painful.

 

And shutting down won’t make the pain go away; trying not to feel the pain will only prolong the healing because the truth is, no one will be there for you forever.

 

And that’s life.

Truth Hurts

Truth may march o’er cracked stone floors
through bloodied hearts arrayed,

And Pain might prevail whilst cities lie
In dust and agony weighed,

Yet Reality trudges onward
through the graying scenes of life,

Gripping in one whitened fist
Truth’s heartless, edged knife.

Poems, Lyrics, Psalmos: Wooing Muse

 

 

Everything’s starting to gel as the day of the Poems, Lyrics, Psalmos: Wooing Muse Book Launch event grows closer.

Barnes and Noble FINALLY posted up the book. It took a full 24 hours after I submitted the document for it to be processed. I took a moment to calculate which sites publish works the fastest and, so far, here are the winners:

Smashwords wins 1st place with a lightening fast turn around time of less than 10min.

Amazon takes second place with a publishing time of around 4-5hours.

Barnes and Nobles takes third at a full 24hours.

Kobo, sadly, takes last place – the book hasn’t even posted yet after 24hours.

 

Whenever Kobo gets around to finally decide to take the moment to actually publish my book – I’ll let you know.

I’ve also done a little remodeling of the site. I’ve created an Interviews page where you can go back and check out all the authors and musicians I’ve interviewed over the lifetime of this blog. The Books tab has been merged with the Author tab, and I’ve also included a listing of works in progress that you can check out. Make sure to take a sec and read the excerpt for Dawn of the Dead.

In any case, the giveaway is still revving to go! Feel free to check it out below ^.^

Ella’s Cinders

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

 

I’ve completed the third poem in Poems, Lyrics, and Psalmos!

 

It’s up for listening HERE.

 

I have to say, I’m pretty exhausted. There’s only one way to record anything at all when you have a toddler. In the middle of the night, when she’s asleep. If you’re lucky.

 

I was only semi-lucky tonight: around 12:30am she decided to finally go to bed after a small snafoo involving a malfunctioning night-light and her already existent fear of the dark.

 

I don’t know why toddlers are scared of the dark – what could she possibly be afraid of? Bottle-snatchers?

 

Anyways! If you are unable to hear Ella’s Cinders, please let me know! Thoughts and criticism are always welcome ^.^

 

And here’s the cover of Poems, Lyrics, Psalmos if you haven’t seen it already ^.^
