I finally have the animated feature of House Trap (well, the prologue of House Trap). First off, I would like to thank Banter Hawks Production for doing such a great job at animating my characters. It was money well spent. I hope everyone enjoys it and check out the story to see what happens next, of course. Pray-fully (with finger-cross) this could lead to bigger things. I really hope a full-feature (live-feature at that) of House Trap would be made sometime in the future. The Martian (directed by Ridley Scott) has clearly shown that a self-published story (written by Andy Weir) could become a successful movie. I truly believe that House Trap would be the equivalent to The Martian. House Trap might even be more successful than The Martian since it would be less expensive to make. Thriller/horror movies, in general, tends to have lower budget than sci-fi movies. I hope someone in the film industry would take interest in House Trap and produce it. Watching this prologue clearly shows how captivating the novella would be as a movie. And trust me when I say there's a slight twist at the end of House Trap, you won't see it coming. It explains everything in regard to the prologue. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to watch it. I hope the next time I post a feature on House Trap it would be a film's teaser trailer. Yeah,You got to think big, dream big, and believe big right? Have a great day everyone:)
The trailer for "The Giver" is finally here!!! It's been a long time coming. I'm just so happy that this book is being turned into a movie. I hope that it really does well in theaters. This book is such a YA classic. It's the book that spawned other YA Dystopian novels such as The City of Ember, The Hunger Games Trilogy, and DIvergent series. Without "The Giver" such book wouldn't have exist. This book truly is amazing in every sense of the word. I can't wait for August 15, 2014!!! I hope you all would check it out in theater as well. For that haven't read the book then you're in for a treat when you see it in the big screen. The gripping tale of Jonas would make you want to read the book. As always thanks for visiting my blog, and i do hope you check it out to see other latest news.
P.S. The other Youtube video is a book reviewer who is also interested in reading "The Giver" ( fastforward to 2:06 on youtube clip), and she spoke about how her college friend read "The Giver" and it changed her life (That's how GREAT this book is and i totally agree with her college friend). Also she mentioned my book "House Trap" which she found interested and read the book's blurb to her fans (fastforward to 4:12 on youtube clip). Hopefully, in the near future, i'd post a trailer to my book House Trap for you all to see:) so take care and enjoy THE GIVER trailer once again( I certainly did, i watched it like ten times and never grew tried of it.)
As i stated in my previous post I said that I would mention the next novel I'm writing about and so this is the debut of the title. But before i get to the name i just want to say that I'm glad that J.K. Rowling wrote another adult novel (If you guys read my review of The Casual Vacancy, i hope that she would write another adult novel. After the review weren't so favorable by critics i assume that she might've gone back to writing for children.). The Cuckoo's Calling rose in ranks as soon as everyone knew she wrote it. I'm currently reading it along with other novels. So far I like it. It's good that she didn't write multi-characters this time around and there's a mystery swarming around each chapter. She stated that there would be a sequel to this book as well(which i'm glad to hear because it looks like it would be a great series, perhaps this might be seven books as well:). I can't wait to write my review on this book because reading it so far this young celebrity she's writing about reminds me of a certain celebrity , even the way this character died looks similar to this real-life celebrity. I can't wait to discuss this on my review on Goodreads but for now i will keep it a secret.
Summer is soon coming to a close. It came just as quickly as it's about to leave. I hope you all enjoyed watching those summer movies and I hope you check out those movies that were based on books. And then read the books as well:) If you miss these book-based movies then don't forget to purchase them on they come out on DVD because they're usually really good to keep anyways. You can also compare the books to the movies as well. I know the Fall movies(book related) are looking really fantastic!! i mean have you seen the second trailer to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire?That looks really good (even though i wasn't too impress with the book-version. You can read my review of it on Goodreads.) I still want to watch the movie and see what changes they made in the movie from the book.
Okay here is the moment that i've been waiting for....The next new book i'm working on. The next YA thriller/suspense novel that would please your reading mind. The YA book that i'm currently writing....the title is called.....DRUM ROLL!!!....................
I'm so excited to release this title for the world to see. I'm telling you this book would knock your socks off. If you think House Trap, Fiery Trap, or Stained were something then you haven't seen nothing yet. This book is an excellent YA thriller/suspense novel that's different from your other YA novel. This one would keep you guessing till the jaw-dropping end. So I hope you keep checking this blog for more informtion of Chockstone Cabin. I hope you tell others about my blog and my novels because i'll greatly appreciate this from each and everyone of you. Thanks to my fans as always. Keep reading and have a blessed week:)
"Chins up Smile on"
"Chins up Smile on," Why???? because the teaser to catching fire is finally here:)
Here is the plot line from wikipedia:
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way, Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow (Donald Sutherland) prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
I have to say the teaser of catching fire was much better than the teaser of the first movie. I remember the first movie being extremely short and pointless. This one, catching fire, showed alot more although leaving alot away as well. i like that they showed the prime characters from film one and not the new casts of catching fire. I bet they are leaving the introduction of the new casts or rather the former victors for a longer, grander trailer (which i hope would be release sooner, perhaps in late May, early June). It looks like Catching Fire is following the same style from The Hunger Games which is a good thing and a bad thing depending on how the entire movie would turn out. Good thing being that it's sticking with the gritty, reality of the world. It has a familar feel to what we're used to from the first movie. However what i meant by "Bad thing" is that it might become boring to see the same style of filming. if it has the same filming style and has nothing new to the table then it would become tedious (for lack of a bettter word). I thought the brilliant point in the teaser was the conversation between President Snow and Plutarch Heavensbee. I hope you enjoy the teaser, and i can't wait to see the full trailer.
Man November seems so far away but as we all know time flies. Before you know it the movie would be here.
P.S. My interview with the author of' "WHEN EARTHLINGS WEEP'' Michael Barnett would be posted on April 23. I hope you check that out!!!
Rachel is now in college, she has found love and her life as a college student is typical till someone emerged to turn it upside down. Someone is leaving clues to her past or is she just imagining it? Rachel had gone through a roller coaster of terror in the Hausefalle's house, now the terror shadows her every step in the world.
This is a hint that Fiery Trap would be available sooner than you think:) I hope you check out my blog for the release date. And of course please read book one first before reading this one to get a better understanding.
Question: Where is Fiery Trap??? Isn't it suppose to come out in August?? wasn't it suppose to come out in september?????
Answer:- Well the reason why Fiery Trap hasn't come out in either of those months was because I gave my mauscript to an editor. And my editor haven't yet finish the editing work because of very urgent family situation ( health-wise). I really hope everything is going well for her. So I'm sorry if it's taking longer than usual for you guys to receive Fiery Trap. All I can say is that I do believe it would be release this year or latest early next year. I hope you haven't given up on the story because it's really good. Please keep checking my blog for updates. I'm truly sorry that it's taking this long for it to be release. Please give it some time and before you know it it will be available. Again I hope everything goes well for my editor's family situation. Thanks again for visiting my blog and have a great day.
I recently received a new hardcover book of Divergent by Veronica Roth. I've heard about this book, but never really checked it out. However now that i have it i decided to see if it had a book trailer. When I checked it out i thought it was an excellent trailer. I hope to make or get book trailer of my books as good as this one (if anyone know of a book trailer company that would make an excellent book trailer for a low budget please email me their website, thanks in advance:)
So I just wanted to post the Divergent book trailer in my blog to show how awesome it was. The plot seemed interesting. The sequel is already out. I'm currently reading a book ( The Descendants which I'm a few pages away from finishing) and have another one book in my list before I might start with this one. But the book trailer is tempting me to skip my to-read list....almost though:).
Check out the interview I did on jeanbooknerd at: http://www.jeanbooknerd.com/2012/06/mike-mauthor-author-interview.html. There's also a giveaway of my book House Trap so enter the contest for a chance to win it.
i saw this movie at a IMAX 3D screen (and i'll suggest you do so as well) and it was amazing. I daresay more so than Avatar. This movie was fantastic despites its flaws( and yes there are flaws and some questionable reasoning from the characters of the movie). Despite the flaws the strengths (to me) far outweight them. I just want to stand on top of the mountain and shout to the world to see this unique, amazing movie experience that Prometheus is. I really hope a sequel is being plan ( please drag any and every one to see this movie). I would be very, very sad if a sequel wouldn't be made. So go see it, you won't regret it. It doesn't matter if you like Sci-fi or not (i'm not really a sci-fi person myself) and i enjoyed it tremendously. Now did i think it was THE SUMMER MOVIE OF 2012. I don't know yet but it's up there. it really is. Did i love it more than The Avenger.....i really don't know both movie were really good. i can't choose one or the other. I wish more movies like this were in theaters. Riley Scott did a fantasic job. Man i hope the sequel is in development (sorry for repeating myself but i really really want this to happen.). Take care as always. Grab a person or two and check out prometheus. Remember view it in IMAX 3D:) bye for now.
Here is one of numerous thrilling moments from the movie on Youtube.
Hi guys well the wait is finally over:) and i'm thrilled to reveal to you all both the title of the house Trap sequel and the book cover. I already stated from my early posting detail about the sequel and how it differ from the first one.( click this link if you haven't read it yet: http://novelpro.weebly.com/4/post/2012/01/progress-of-the-sequel-to-house-trap.html) I don't have the exact date yet of the release date but it would most likely be early this year. I hope those that read House Trap and enjoyed it are sharing the stories with other people that might like such a thrilling tale. And those that have read the first one, please reread it before you jump into the sequel. From my twitter account, at the image section, i had my dream cast of House Trap, if it was made into a movie. I hope you checked it out and email me what you think of those cast or maybe tell me your suggestion to who you think would play rachel, Kristen, Scott, Alicia etc. It was fun showcasting my thoughts on who should play who. My dream would be for James Wan and Leigh Whannell to be the one to adapt House Trap movie. The novella has blockbuster movie written all over it( just like the short sotry Ghost Walker by Lan McKenzie Jeffers which was the movie called The Grey starring Liam Neeson). I might be posting a cast for the House Trap Sequel just for fun. I have a couple of actors who would be great for the sequel. Anyways the title of the sequel is....which is long overdue might i add is...Fiery Trap. And for the first time ever i will post a theme song for a novel of mine. The song that fits the theme of Fiery Trap is the latest song by Adele called Set the fire to the rain. The song capture the emotion and turmoil that Rachel went through in the novel. The song also hint an event that happened in the novel as well. I will post the book cover and the song below. I hope you are as excited as i am about the sequel and i can't wait for you all to read it. It's really is a great sequel. I hope you keep checking my blog for further detail, ciao for now:)
Well what a holiday season we had. It's the new year and all the festivities are over. We're in 2012 and so to start it off i wanted my first blog entry of the 2012(beside the entry that celebrated the new year) to be about the sequel of House Trap. Well it's been quite a challenge so far. It isn't easy writing a sequel, especially one that would just be as good if not better than the original material but i think this one is very good...very good in a different way. I hope that my fans( and future fans of House trap) would look at the sequel as a different entity.
I would explain what i mean by this because the sequel isn't quite like the original but it's very good in its own right. I would explain this by comparison. This way you would have a clear understanding by what i meant of "different entity"
1. House Trap is a novella.................................The Sequel is a novel, not a novella
2. House Trap is plot-driven................................The Sequel is character-driven
3. House Trap is a fast-paced, thriller..........................The Sequel is a steady, psychological thriller that gear toward mystery.
4. House Trap is more indoor action............................ The Sequel is somewhat more outdoor-ish than the original
5. House Trap has few characters..................................... The Sequel has more characters than the original
So this is just to give you a taste of how the sequel is like. It isn't the same pacing like the previous book but it's very good and still thrilling. The result is a.........let's just say it's going to be 'smoking'( This is a clue to what the title of the sequel would be.). So i hope you're as excited as i am about the sequel. I can't wait to release it when it's ready:) Just keep checking for more update and maybe next time i might reveal the title and the book cover of the sequel. Trust me when i tell you that both the title and the book cover are gripping. It definitely surpasses House Trap's book cover in my opinion.
I hope those that read and loved House Trap would share it with those that would like such story because the sequel will take them to another level and bring readers to get to know the main character more deeper than ever before. So that's all i have to say about the sequel. I hope you're having a great new year and i hope your resolutions are going well so far. Mine is going alright. I'll try to stay busy working on the sequel, hope you're having a happy reading with my and other authors' novel, and overall thanks for visiting and reading my post as always. Bye for now.
