BREAK YOURSELF FREE FROM DEPRESSION

Everyone has wonderful hopes, dreams, and expectations of their future, but many times what we are looking for never come our way. Some of us have been robbed of our joy through the loss of a loved one and many feel lonely and hopeless when they find themselves in abusive homes and domestic violence.In such a troubled world, it's very easy to see the ailments of the society taking its toll on people. The high rate of unemployment and divorce, are also some of the causes leading to depression. It's not surprising that psychologists have confirmed that the ailments of people can be traced from the homes and environment they were raised.We understand that as human beings, we are bound to face d...

Gun Kiss by Khaled Talib: Midwest Book Review

Take a deep breath, because Gun Kiss's special brand of high-octane action is on its way to market, and it's a hell of a ride especially recommended for thriller readers who like their action not only nonstop, but tempered with a bit of romance and a lot of world-hopping political confrontations.The tension begins in the first paragraph as a Lincoln re-enactment event in Washington, D.C. results in a hostage and a bomber intent on thievery. Rick achieves his goals with almost casual precision: it's clear he's not only planned his escapade down to the second, but that he's a pro.As a missing Deringer from The Ford Theatre Museum involves a host of special interests, the story heats up to beco...

Facts, Fiction, & Fandom: Harnessing Geek Power to Research Your Books

There's a saying about writing historical fiction that I'm rather fond of - "you can make a lot of stuff up, but Lincoln has to be tall." In this day and age, information is easier to get a hold of than ever before, and that can be a tremendous benefit to us novelists. However, that also means it's easier to catch us red-handed if we don't do our research. And in the age of the internet, you can be sure our sin will be found out. Yeah, our job as writers is to be a storyteller above all else, and I certainly believe in dramatic license. However, that's not an excuse for us to not put any effort into researching whatever it is we're writing about. Nothing can replace the traditional approach ...

Hello, and welcome to this edition of Everything Sci-Fi.World Building - Part 2Last time, I discussed a little bit on what world building is, and what it takes to build a successful world for your readers.

This time I’m getting into the nitty-gritty of world-building.The first step in every good world build is to decide if you’re world is a completely new world, or if you’re making changes to current contemporary settings, and if so, what those changes are.Once you decide, the next step is to sit down and br...
