This girl is currently using the mobile tumblr app and the result will make a shorter (hopefully, I’m serious this time) post about the following:

So, let’s talk about Nightbooks by J.A.White!

This book is targeted for young readers and overall, is a fantastic read for those who like a little bit of scary/ horror. The book is an overall retelling of the best fairytales like Hansel and Gretel and 1001 Nights, yet, as the main character is a writer, there are spurts of new and fun stories between the pages.

For it’s age, I think its unique in terms of brushing over the concept of “you are who you are and that’s ok”- the story itself, very very cute for its audience. It tries to empathize certain characters on top of like showing how one can still be stung by it.

And, overall, it was a perfect read for October! Although, I happened to read it early November muahaha.

✨✨✨✨

Definitely worth it.

Мне пишут издательства. Заманивают… Отвечаю всем им скопом:

Получил ваше письмо. Платить ничего не буду, но готов отказаться от гонорара за первую книгу “Хроник Твинка”. Сами найдите в интернете (выставил в свободный доступ “Розовый Зигурат”) и прикиньте, каким тиражом лучше вам её напечатать (уведомив меня и любые изменения внося только с моего согласия) и сохранить ли старую обложку. А как тираж выйдет обговорим условия на следующие четыре книги цикла.

И переводчики пишут.

Поэтому для них, всех скопом:

Прочитал  ваше письмо. Платить ничего не буду, но готов отказаться от гонорара за первую книгу “Хроник Твинка” на каком бы языке она не была издана на бумаге. Сами найдите в интернете (выставил в свободный доступ “Розовый Зигурат”) и прикиньте, как её лучше перевести (и надо ли) и какому забугорному издательству в переведённом виде предложить. Однако, перед принятием решения о печати, прошу уведомить меня и выполнив обратный перевод на русский язык ознакомить меня с ним. Любые изменения принципиальные для сюжета должны вноситься только с моего согласия. В остальном переводите как посчитаете нужным. Можете сохранить старую обложку. Можете сделать новую. Но на новой обложке ОБЯЗАТЕЛЬНО должно быть понятно для кого эта книга предназначена (как это сделано на старой) А как тираж выйдет обговорим условия на следующие четыре книги цикла.​​​

The embers burn, and gentle is the arrow’s stinging

‘Neath the evening sky.

The embers burn, and gentle is the arrow’s stinging

When the end draws nigh.


Saint Sebastian, Valery Yaklovich Bryusov

Sigh…here goes nothing. I have been reluctant to announce my new book project because every time I do, setbacks happen. Considering that I’m wrapping up the last chapter and that everything left is minor and the basic minutiae like footnotes and whatnot, I figured it’s a good time to announce my upcoming book. The few privileged people that have read snippets have said that it is a cut above my previous two books. The scholarship is better, the writing is better, and the book itself is unique.

Books similar to mine are “The End of Christianity” and “The Christian Delusion,” but both books are a compilation of essays written by different people. My book is written by just one person and rather than eviscerating Christianity and giving Christians no alternative, I end the book with a solid defense of humanism. There is also material not found on my blogs or in any books similar to mine. The anthropology chapter will make that very clear. 

Like I promised, this book is the curtain call for this blog, so it catalogs my entire journey and experience over the last decade or so. What’s left is an actualized atheism and a transcendent humanism that calls on readers to organize and start helping others. I expect to be fully wrapped up by February, if not sooner. 

In the meantime, consider getting “Philosophical Atheism: Counter Apologetics and Arguments for Atheism” and “Ending the Abortion Debate: On The Issues That Truly Matter” on Amazon. The next book, despite the strength of both books, will be of a higher quality and standard for sure. Stay tuned!
