Concert Fix

Beyond the darkness the guitar unraveled its static discord in a jumbled mix of screaming nothingness as bright red clouded in clear liquid before swirling back into the flow. In heartbeats the harmony congealed to rhythm a single chord reverberated in sparkling light shadows danced wet with the hour tracks on their arms swayed back and forth cigarette lighters demanding more, more, more... And still the music set into a trembling silence, mourning the fix away. Guitar in the dream is a symbol that expresses the emotional state of the person and his entourage. Depending on the atmosphere in which this instrument appears in the dream, you should pay attention to the various aspects of your life. For example, a dream in which you hold a guitar in your hands is a good sign. Even better omen is if you play the guitar in a dream. Both of these cases, tell us about the sudden contact with interesting company. And they might be complete strangers, accidentally met in a club or during a morning jog. Most importantly, in this company you will certainly find the right person that will cause a flash amazing feeling, love. It is obvious why you see a guitar with a broken string. This is an indication that the joy of love may give way to sad experiences for some time. It is possible that there will be the reason for tears. Especially important are such dreams for young people, who have no own family yet. The sounds of guitar music, heard by a girl, indicate that she will be meeting with insincere flatterer. This person will try to somehow hurt, but she can successfully resist. If a man sees a guitar, it means that he needs to pay special attention to own interests. Perhaps his lightheadedness can put him in a difficult position. So do not ignore such a dream, and perceive it as a friendly advice. According to Z. Freud, guitar is a symbol of the feminine. In human dreams there are constantly striking and sometimes vague events. From the standpoint of Freud, dreams are a reflection of reality at a deep subconscious level. There are many cases where dreams not only helped to care of trouble, but also helped to perform great discoveries, and create famous art works. In this regard, it is sufficient to talk about Mendeleev, Mozart, Pushkin, or Beethoven. Applying Freud's dream book, and exploring personal interpretation of dreams, we can better understand his own nature and avoid a lot of troubles. In the study of dreams, Freud drew special attention to the complex of free association with specific characters. He identified the key elements masked in subconscious, which closely involve the desire of most people. These elements are presented in the form of the human body, male and female. The design of guitar hull is very similar to the smooth and graceful lines of the female body. A man who has seen such dream has a harmonious relationship with his spouse. For a woman, the dream about guitar, tell that she can be confident in own sex female attractiveness, as well as the health of reproductive organs and feasibility of the union with her lover.

Newest Book --- Shadow Master ---

Horrible beyond conception was the change which had taken place in the vast expanse of the universe, as if the sun had lost its lustrous glow, and the fiery heat could not penetrate through the cold darkness. Long ago, in a place where there was no darkness, there was what you call magic. A world that was once known, now had been forbidden; forgotten and all together lost forever from humanity; disappeared off the face of the earth.

Free to self-publish an ebook.

It's gotta be good: The same rule applies to self-published e-books as it does to print books. You have to start with a good product if you have any hope of selling it.
Create an interesting cover:
When it comes to e-books, everything starts with the cover image. Creating an eye-catching, professional-looking cover that also looks good small (it has to stand out as a thumbnail image, since it's being sold online) is easier said than done, but it can really make a difference in terms of sales. Ideally, you should hire a graphic designer who has some experience creating book covers. From a production standpoint, an e-book cover is easier to create than a cover for a print book (you just need a JPEG with decent resolution), but it shouldn't look out of place among traditionally published e-books. I can't tell you how many bad self-published covers are out there.
Avoid any outfits that don't let you set the price:
This is one of the cardinal rules of self-publishing an e-book. You must be able to control the pricing of your e-book. If you want to sell it for 99 cents, then you should be able to sell it for 99 cents.
Marketing is all about creating awareness for your e-book:
I don't have any secret marketing tips to offer, but what I can say is that you can't sell a book if no one knows it exists. Most of book marketing is simply about creating awareness and you need to do that however you can, whether it's through social media or blogging or passing out fliers in the coffee shops.
E-book publishing options:
Here are the three big questions to bear in mind with e-book creation: first, what is the easiest and most cost-efficient way to produce an e-book? Second, where will it be distributed? And third, how much of a cut do you get? With those in mind, let's take a look at some of the more high-profile options available currently. I'm limiting it to these options because I want to keep this as simple as possible.
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP)
This is Amazon's e-book publishing platform, and if you think you're going to sell a lot of e-books, you should figure out a way to upload your file (book) directly to KDP and avoid using any sort of middleman or e-book "aggregator" that takes a cut of the profits. If you're a true DIY person, you can create your own cover (though if you're not a professional designer, it's better to hire a pro) and format your e-book using free software tools such as Calibre.
Smashwords, one of the e-book pioneers and largest distributors of self-published e-books, with more than 125,000 titles from over 40,000 authors, is very much a DIY operation. You bring your Word file and cover image, upload it into the company's "Meatgrinder" tool, and in a matter of minutes, you create your e-book in just about every format you'd want. You can then sell that e-book on or have the company distribute it to most of the major e-book sellers, including Barnes & Noble's eBookstore, Apple's iBooks, Sony, Kobo, and Baker & Taylor's Blio and others. Smashwords also has deals in place for having its authors' e-books distributed to libraries.
BookBaby, the sibling of CD Baby (Brian Felsen is the president of both operations), has a slightly different business model from some of its competitors. Instead of taking a cut of your royalties, it makes you pay a fee of $99 upfront, then charges you a yearly fee of $19 per title you have in its system. It also offers print publishing services.
Barnes & Noble's PubIt
Barnes & Noble's PubIt self-publishing operation offers similar features to Amazon's KDP, but the two platforms do have their differences. Barnes & Noble has set the PubIt royalty rate for authors at 65 percent of the sale price for titles priced $2.99 and higher. The rate falls to 40 percent if you choose to go lower than $2.99 or higher than $9.99, with B&N setting 99 cents as the lowest allowable price and $199.99 as the highest. (For books priced under $2.99 or over $9.99, you actually earn more by distributing your book to B&N through Smashwords, which pays 60 percent list for all prices 99 cents and up.
So there you have the top places to get your book published. Good luck in you endeavors to get your book finished.

Shadow Master

My latest book will be finish in a week so check out its excerp now.

When age of darkness fell upon the world, and wonder went out of the minds of men; when all the cities decayed to smoky ruins and the tall towers became grim and ugly, in whose shadow none might dream of the sun or of the moon, only one walked amidst the walls of the fallen people.

Horrible beyond conception was the change which had taken place in the vast expanse of the universe, as if the sun had lost its lustrous glow, and the fiery heat could not penetrate through the cold darkness.

Long ago, in a place where there was no darkness, there was what you call magic. A world that was once known, now had been forbidden; forgotten and all together lost forever from humanity; disappeared off the face of the earth.

Two souls made of one, divided by time, and reunited within their dreams. Worlds stand between them now, but fate is their guiding light, one glance bound them, one touch empowered them. Now, they have no choice but to finish the war they started lifetimes before...or they will lose it all.

The chance of being alone in the coldness of the dark void seemed more of a bearable risk than a life with her spirit in certain and utter despair, and though she made her entrance into this dark, dismal world, it glowed with no fire, no warmth to be found. So the dream Whisper had vanished, but the aura of the dream tainted her senses, an odor, a taste, an invisible color staining the darkness of her world.

Life goes on.

Along with the sentence “This too shall pass,” the line above is simultaneously the most pessimistic formulation of the way the universe works, and the most optimistic one. On the one hand, “Life goes on” indicates that we are capable of picking ourselves up after any tragedy and continuing with some kind of meaningful and useful existence, no matter how damaged we might be from our experiences.

There’s always tomorrow for dreams to come true.

On the other hand.

“Life goes on” does seem in our blackest hours to imply one dreary, torturous day after another, with no surcease till death, and an uncaring response from a heartless creation.
