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 ..

لكن لاحظ معي أن حر...Read more of this blog post »

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.

I found this video.
It features two past Josephs (Donny Osmond and Jason Donovan) singing with the new one.

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.

A belief that greatly haunts me
A sound of insanity to my innermost self
