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:)
It's great news when another movie based on a book becomes number one at the box office. Hollywood, take notice!!! books are the way to get original idea nowadays. Instead of remakes or reboots, find your ideas in great storytelling. The fault in our stars is an original work and as you can see the masses loved it. I just hope that a producer or studio out there would take a chance at reading an indie author's work.
I truly believe there are great original stories out there in the indie publishing arena. It'll take just one producer/studio to make a bold move and if he/she does so I know (with all my being) that the movie (and the book) would become a success or perhaps a phenomenon. I don't believe every best-selling novel would translate into a block-buster movie. What makes a block-buster movie is how original the story is and whether a certain demographic would be interested in its originality. Most of the books that hollywood had adapted into movies were clones of either Twilight, Hunger Games, or Harry Potter. To truly find the next big thing, you have to look into the indie-publishing world. Dig into stories that are great but the masses haven't gotten a chance to notice its greatness yet. Someday I believe such a situation would come by. Someone out there would find an indie book and turned that book into a movie. But for now I'll just be happy to see any book-based film become number one at the box office. Hopefully "The Giver"would be number one as well. "The Hundred Foot Journey" should also be number one.
Take care and I hope you all are enjoying summer so far. Keep visting my blog, tell someone about it as well. I'm blessed to have such fantastic fans!!! Have fun but not too much fun. Don't forget to read a book as well( preferrably my novels of course:):):) but yeah you can read other books i guess) Bye for now!
P.S. Here's the second trailer of "The Giver", I hope you enjoy it. It's in black and white folks, so they're sticking to the source material which is great.
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!!!
I'm glad that Hollywood decided to make the sequel to the Percy Jackson Movie. I know the first one didn't following the plot of the book but I enjoyed it however. I heard this sequel followed closely to the book( they even went as far as to change Alexanderia Daddario's hair to blonde like the character in the book) so that's good news there. So I posted the trailer on my blog because I like it and i really hope that it wouldn't be a flop. I really hope it does better than the first movie as well. So check it out and go see it in theaters, make this one a success folks!!!
P.S. I have an upcoming interview with author of' "WHEN EARTHLINGS WEEP'' Michael Barnett. So please check out this inteview on my blog in the near future. Thanks as always and keep reading and have a great day:)
Let the Confetti fall!!!!!! because, not only it's the new year (yes i'm still celebrating the new year and i will continue till the end of January), but, and this is a big BUT, get ready for this............ Fiery Trap is finally here for your reading pleasure:) If you want to start reading it now it's available at smashwords.com. You can go to smashwords and get your copy now. As for amazon, it would be available in a couple of hours. I hope you all are having a great new year so far. I hope changes are coming to you as well (Good changes of course). I'm just excited to release Fiery Trap to the world. Sequels are alway tricky to write. You have to match the original yet bring something new to the table. I feel i've done that with Fiery Trap. I believe my fans will be thrilled and be surprised by the end of the story. This is a YA thriller/Suspense book that would have you talking and hopefully telling others about it:). I don't want to spoil anything for you but if you want to read the excerpt please click on Fiery Trap tab above. But first it would be wise to read the first book because the second book starts where the first ended. Thanks for visiting my blog and hope to see you again. 2013 is looking good so far:)
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:).
