She’d tried to warn her. But you can’t tell someone like Sarah anything. She’s got a handle on ev... Read more of this blog post »

So "Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands" is now almost a week old.
Today was the Kinetson -- or the Armenian Blessing of the Book. It was a very moving afternoon for me.
But, thanks to all of you, this first week has felt like a blessing. I met so many of you in Vermont, Washington, DC, Maryland,... Read more of this blog post »

اللهم أجرنا من عذاب جهنم !
جرِّب أن تشرب شاياً ساخناً دفعة واحدة ،بماذا ستشعر ؟
ستشعر بحرارة شديدة تقطِّع لك شفتيك ولسانك وبلعومك ..ستركض لتشرب الماء البارد ، تطفئ به حرقة جوفك ..
دعك من أنك ستُلقي عليَّ جمَّ غضبك ، وستكيل عليَّ كلَّ أنواع السباب ؛ لأنني أنا من نصحك بهذه التجربة !
لكن لاحظ معي أن حر...Read more of this blog post »

it has been a long time,
during down time,
going out of your mind,
but what can you do,
just to see it through,
and the temptations of everyday,
also seem to get in the way,

With the release of my first book just around the corner–oh my god, I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away!– I have officially entered the ‘bucket of nerves’ part of the writing process. It’s a strange mix of excitement and anticipation with a good dose of anxiety thrown in.

Part of your job as an author, whether traditionally print published or self-published, is to do self-promotion. But, with something like 5 million writers self-publishing these days, the promotional waters are getting pretty darned crowded. It’s critically important to do self-promotion that doe...Read more of this blog post »
I found this video.
It features two past Josephs (Donny Osmond and Jason Donovan) singing with the new one.
The new one is young. The past ones are kind of old.
While watching the video, I thought of another way the song c... Read more of this blog post »

It is a love story reflecting the same Bollywood emotion. In the first-half of the movie, you can predict what’s going to happen. Yah, the second-half of the movie has some twists, and I liked them.
Characters are well played by all the actors, including Alia and Varun.

Don’t read anything by authors/ writers complaining about their job or saying that they sit in front of their computers feeling like failures. Leave that to them! Losers and idiots each and every one of them. They’ve stolen so much of my time with that crap!

Me and my buddy, superstar writer, and fellow Queens born, Bill Cheng.
Broadway, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, that is. I saw the little canine trotting past the Bank of the Southwest after Art Hop on Saturday night. He seemed in a hurry to get out of town, crossing our main drag and hustling down a side street toward the river. I hear his relatives across the...Read more of this blog post »

Dear Ones -
The other night at my event in St Paul, a young woman asked me about how I achieve balance in my life.
