It's kind of a chicken and egg thing since I wrote of a band in 12: A Novel About the End of the Mayan Calendar named Apokaful. The word was defined in 12 as thoughts of the end of the world, which seemed appropriate since in the novel rain was falling everywhere and modern civilization was drowning.(less)

Should you get a website in your name?

I’ve got multiple artistic careers going—an EP that’s getting some attention and my fourth novel coming out in February.

“A man lost to himself is lost to all.”
Jeffrey Marcus Oshins, The Eye of the Archer

“Red-bellied hummingbirds and hard-beaked toucans banked in the mist rising up in wet clouds. The air shook around jagged rock columns that thrust from swirling water thrown white from brown waves. The scent of the muddy river mixed with the ripe jungle smells of rotting leaves and flowers.”
Jeffrey Marcus Oshins, 12: A Novel About the End of the Mayan Calendar
