Nokia 1020

Being a bit of a photography buff I've never been keen on cameras in phones, until now. When I first saw the Nokia 1020 with the 41mp camera on board, I thought, this may be a reasonable alternative than lugging around an SLR for everyday shots. And it is.

This is the first photo out of the camera I took today.  Up close, macro with manual zoom.

Amour, the most harrowing movie I have watched from an emotional perspective. The dramatic performances extenuate the expression of love the couple share, concluding in a troubling ending that cleaves the soul of morality.

This Week

Lots of exciting things put in motion this week. The launch of my Author's newsletter allowing fans greater insight into the Elijah Hael worlds, as well as giving them the chance to win cool stuff.  Don’t forget to sign up via my Facebook page or blog. Finished a second article which will be published on Faith Driven Business.  Keep a lookout for that one coming in the next week. With sweat dripping down my forehead (ok that sweat bit is a furby but it makes it sound dramatic), I completed the concept for something I plan to launch soon which will give readers of Elijah Hael something to enjoy on a monthly basis beyond the newsletter. The Elijah Hael merchandise will be available soon, yes, not long now and you will be able to purchase Elijah Hael merchandise from shirts, cups, mouse mats etc. with exclusive artwork and quotes from the series.

Conversations with a Christian at Work

Check out my "Conversations with a Christian at Work" article published by Faith Driven Business at http://faithdrivenbusiness.org/index.php/news/item/166-conversations-with-a-christian-at-work.html

I'm excited about my articles being published by 3rd party professionally run blogs. Means my words, driven by real experiences, can reach more people. And, possibly help someone deal with difficulties life can sometimes throw.

Happy & Sad

Sad and happy day today. Sad in that I say goodbye to some loveable characters I have come to know over the past months. Happy in that I finished the manuscript for The Angelic Code. It is a hard feeling to describe. To come to the end of writing a story. I guess it is similar to reading a novel, sometimes you just do not want the story to end. You do not want to leave behind the characters you have gotten to know. As an author, in some ways that step is even more difficult. Before starting a manuscript, I have a good idea on how the story finishes. As I come close to the end, I feel a sense of longing. Knowing, I will be leaving the characters soon. Sad but happy.

I hope my fans enjoy this new story. I believe it to be my best work. Emotional, action, adventure, humorous at times, playful, deep, colourful, spiritual, many real locations, loveable characters and an ending the reader will never see coming, but one that makes sense. An ending that will stick with the reader for some time. For those who have read the previous two novels, you'll get a bigger kick from the ending. You'll need tissues, but not for sadness.

Cover reveal

Here is the cover for my next novel "The Angelic Gene" I put together. Typically I use stock photos to design the covers. This time I was fortunate enough to have the assistance of model Jennifer Douglas (also a fantastic singer) and photographer Christina Cheang to help create a unique cover. (coming early 2014)

Book Cover

I think my eyes are starting to bleed from working on the cover for my latest novel. Too many hours staring at the screen. All in all, with assistance from colleagues and the model, the end result is looking fantastically sharp. Will be posting the cover very soon. Stay tuned!

If Only I Had Wings

Check the beautiful song below sung by the talented Jessica Douglas (Milli Alaira). And for those that read my blog, I'll let you in on a little secret.  Jennifer Douglas will be the face of Sophia on the cover of an upcoming Elijah Hael novel.

I reached out for the moon and saw a failing star;
just a passing angel, for that is what you are.
If only I had an angel's wings then I could fly away with you;
and we could share our dreams and make them all come true.
Yes we could share our dreams and make them all come true.

We could chase the rainbow each time that heaven cried;
rain drops fall like our tears for love has never died.
Dancing on the clouds we'd waltz across the heavenly blue;
smiles lighting up my eyes I whisper I love you.
Yes now my smiling eyes are saying I love you.

When reaching for the moon I'll that that falling star;
I will see my angel, for that is what you are.
If only I had angel's wings then I could flyaway with you;
and we could share our dreams and make them all come true.
Yes we could share our dreams and make them all come true.

And I would fly to where you are; If only I had wings like you.
I would chase that falling star, across the skies of blue.
O I would dance beyond the clouds, and I would reach out in my dream,
Then fly to where you are. Then fly to where you are.

"If Only I Had Wings"
Lyrics by Greg Scheer and Colin Gordon-Farleigh
