Alphabetical Genocide

Well, the new book is published, judging waiting on it to show up on the separate ereader stores and what not. Bout to dive head first into the vampire manifesto as well. Try and get part one done by the end of the month...

Haven't went to sleep yet, can't really sleep, already light out. To tired to write though...

Cover

Just finished the cover on the new poetry book. Calling it alphabetical genocide. Cover is very simplistic, all red with a hangman drawn in white, like the game hangman. Once I figure out how to put pics up on here, I'll post it. Watching castle, bout to make some nachos to get me in the mood for all the formatting I have to do tonight for the ereaders...

Unpublished 1st Interview

Welcome to the blog, Rashaad! Could you tell us a little bit about your book?

Thank you for allowing me this most prodigious of opportunities, may the Immortal beauty of the Goddess Aphrodite, bless you're generosity.

My fledgling novel: Forgotten Future is an exploratory narrative into the rudimentary psyche of society as a whole. What is it that drives homo sapiens as a cognitive species, into the blackness of the abyss, only to speak exploratory conscience, riddled by factual, elicit text of the twelfth dimension, transcribed into machina code, for you're virtual, cortex - ingestion - driven consumption.

What led you to write this book?

The realization, that the Bleed between moments, the space between spaces, the Dark of the Black where Omega realities birth themselves into Liquid Diamond Nightmares, right into the Shadows of the Stolen Unicorn, hyper-extending themselves into the central nervous system of an electrical, quasi-quantum - artificial, carnivorus electron....

At that moment, I had to act.

Vampires have become quite popular lately. How did you make vampire lore your own?
I cannot boast lightly, for the lives that speak the Tongue of the NeverNever, they whisper their daymares in the genetic nuclei code of the first afterthought, after the third deja vu cohesion, transferring they're third eye witness into something my fourth consciences can manifest.


When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

Transdimensinal, Temporal activity is not to be spoken of, it is forbidden due to Premediated Pardox Law: 28epsilon PointNecro-Charlie...

What is your best advice on writing?

When a Dream, dreams a dream of itself dreaming, is it still a Dream? Or would that be considered a Nightmare? Or have we only come full circle, back to the beginning, only to begin to Dream again?

Thanks so much for stopping by, Rashaad!

Bio

I am reverse birthing my newest breed of literary, The Vampire Manifesto, my the Gods bare witness to it's truths...

Apples and Buffalos

Yup, that's the new name for the podcast. Shot a copy to everyone that was in it. Let them listen first. Had a problem with the mic. Worried that it was gonna be to low, when really it was too loud. Cleaned it up as best I could.

Next podcast, which is recording this Sunday, I won't have the mic up as high, so everything should work out.

This podcast thing is trial and error, but I love it!

Should be up here pretty soon!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Podcast update

Recorded and edited the first podcast. Still need to adjust the eq on it. It's a learning process. Recording the next two podcasts this Sunday. Going to put them up on here and submit them to iTunes as well.

Rewatching the game of thrones. Should really be finishing up the mixing on the 1st podcast, but I'm just needing down time.

Podcast came out banging however.

Hope it's something that will continue. We shall see

80's party

Went to an 80's themed party last night! It was AMAZING! Of course I didn't dress up, cause that's just how I roll, but I did get to judge the costumes. Had so much fun with so many people! Got waaay to panda during the night. AND literally got pulled OFF the dance floor by this hot chick, who pulled me outside and then proceeded to Jehovah witness my ass. I'm like WTF? I thought you was trying to holla!!!! I'm so not panda enough for this!

Plus, I ordered a long island ice tea at the bar and the bartender literally give me this funny look, pulled out a book on how to make mixed drinks and proceeded to read!

Idk what he gave me, but it sure as hell wasn't a long island! It was stronger then a mofo so it was all good!

Podcast update

Did research on how to submit the podcast to iTunes. Guess it takes like a month before all the red tape madness is completed. I want to get like, five episodes in the can before I submit them, but I'm going to see if I can post them here first as they are created.

Podcast

I mean, come on!

Forgotten Future update

Okay, so I finished all the madness with the print proof. Did another round of editing on the book, just posted that to Smashwords and on amazon. I'm happy with the book so far, editing wise I mean, I feel it's good to go know.

Just waiting for the updates to take effect. Since I update on Smashwords, I've got to resubmit to the premium catalog all over a again. =[ I'm never gonna get in the iBook at this rate. Eh...just need patience.

Changed the color of the print books pages from white to cream. Just wasn't feeling the white pages, they were hella bright for some reason.

No longer on the bestsellers list, but I'm thinking once the print version comes out I'll be back up there... Mad people are waiting on the print version.

Almost 1am, need to sleep and get ready to go to work 2morrow.

Eh...

Amazon best sellers list

Such a nice weekend! Made the amazon best sellers list for science fiction short stories this weekend. Made it to #38. Bout to drop off the list now, but it's cool to have been there. Going to finish the editing on the print proof. Today is well. Lots to do!

Camping!

Just came back from camping this weekend. Had a blast! More fun then expected, plus we unofficially got told we can't come back cause we were to off the chain! Love it. Have pics up on my Facebook. We looked like a poster for the united nations! Blacks, whites, gays, les, straight, Jewish, polish, haha, republicans were not feeling us one bit. Have to post a pic up here of the crew.

Supposed to be going to some other spot next month. Hopefully they won't tell us were being to rowdy for 11:30 pm. Park ranger told us to shut it down, cut off the music. We were like what? It's 11:30 at night on a Saturday and we are in the middle of the fucking woods and we are being to loud?

Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Almost there

Well I've gotten everything up on smashwords.com heres the link: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/55421

Waiting for the proof copy of the print version before it can be sold.

Print version has a different cover then the e-version. Once the print is up for sell at amazon, I'll switch out the e-versions for the print version cover, cause i think that one looks better.

Vampire dairies was off the chain tonight! If you're not watching that show then you should, cause it's awesome.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Just finished

Well everything has been done for the print edition of forgotten future. Did a super re-edit of it as well. Plus, I finialy got done correctly formatting everything for smashwords, which was a fucking bitch. I think I did about eight hours of editing today, straight. Although, it didn't seem that long.

I just put on some pandora, started around 2:30 in the afternoon (got off work early, just to do the formatting) and when I was done it was after 12:30. Idc though, cause now that part is all done!

Eating and listening to real time with bill.

Plus Chris brown has like two remixes I like, deuces and some other joint with buster rhymes, who was straight murking the track.

Vampire dairies was solo off the chain! The curse of the sun and moon is fake! (that's right, spoilers bitches) I can't wait till this Thursday.

Monday, April 25, 2011

Can't believe I forgot to add this: http://www.amazon.com/Forgotten-Future-ebook/dp/B004XTK6RQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2&s=books&qid=1303779899&sr=8-1

Forgotten Future

Hot damn, the kindle version came out perfect! I am an official author now! Working on the print version now. Should be up and running this weekend. Next Monday at the latest! I'm extra happy now. Just gotta finish up with getting FF on all the other devices, get the print running, then try to get some online reviews. Then it's back to working on liquid diamond, my newest book. It's about one in the am, need to hit the sack

Sunday, April 24, 2011

Wtf

Well, smashwords was uploaded about an hour ago. The formatting was horrible. Had to take it down. Makes me think I need to take down the kindle version as well. Kinda sucks, but I'll figure it out and try again. Won't be till next weekend, cause it's Monday and I'm back on schedule for writing the main seris. I think I'm going with: liquid diamond as the tittle.

Just got hella books on the iPad just now. From the godfather, to the vampire chronicles, and everything in-between. About thirty books in tottal. Like I have time to read all that goodness, but at least it's there.

Just finished the second episode of game of thrones. I love that show! Almost like camelot, but with less action and better writers. Although, Camelot is banging as well. Need to find something else to watch, eat, then hit the sack.

The que

Still in the smashwords que. Been in it all night, it's just maddening!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Done, I guess...

Everything is uploaded where it should be for all e-readers. Forgotten Future is on it's way. Only took me all day to get it right. Hopefully it's done correctly. Will more then likely have the paperback out next month. Just finished eating, watching castle and just feeling good. I really need to shave though...

Publishing

Okay, so the kindle version is kicking my ass. Can only wait for it to be kicked back for the other versions...

Forgotten Future

Well, I just tried to publish the anthology book, im in the que, at like, 3211. Doubt it will go through, but when it gets kicked back, I'll know what's wrong with it. Forgot to add a bio page and where to locate me at, via twitter, blogspot, ect. Have to fix it later. Listening to real time with bill. Pretty banging.
Finialy eating. Hooked the iPad back up from being stuck in restore mode almost as long as it's worked. Created a pretty decent cover for the anthology seris. Going to be calling that book Forgotten Future. Catchy huh? Lol
Okay, well this is the second post. The first got erased somehow. It's about 3:30 am, bout to eat some dinner. Got the new computer up and running. Going to try and publish the anthology book this weekend. I feel like I need something published. Haven't figured out the name just yet and I'm going to do the cover myself this one time, just to see if I can. Its just some short stories, but the stories are well written and all pretty much take place in the normal seris, which I haven't really come up with a name for as well.

Will hit you back up with more info 2morrow!
