It’s 2018. Do you know where you will get published yet?

Welcome to a new year, already slipping by faster than the last. They say that as you get older time becomes your mortal enemy, losing more of yourself to the past, and less to the potential of the future.

The Quest for Relevancy in the Meaning of Life: Too Many Fish in a Small Pond

Let’s face it; there are just too many people in the world, all vying for attention, whether for personal gratification, professional goals, sales, or just to remain relevant.

Justice League Movie Review

After a successful Man of Steel, followed by a tepid Batman vs Superman—a generally dark and negative turn on the comic book alliance between the two giants—and then, most recently Suicide Squad and the successful Wonder Woman movie, Justice League was intended to cement the future of the DC superhero movies. Upcoming stand-alone films include […]

For the Price of Two Fortunes
