Turmoil - A.M. Torres second book of Poetry.

I began my last blog with a Happy New Year. That was back in January 2017. We are now in May of 2017, and I do hope that you did have a Happy New Year even as I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas during 2016. I've been meaning to blog a lot more than I have. I apologize that it's taken me this long to blog again. 2016 was a rough year for me. If you remember the post about my therapist and his sudden death which took place last September. Then came the death of my father on October 4 barely two weeks later maybe three. It was rough. Its still rough. I mentioned my father's Alzheimers, and the struggle my family endured with his condition. This has been a tough adjustment period, and we miss him every day. Today marks seven months he passed away.

This is the main reason why I've fallen behind on so much blogging. However, I am happy to report that my second book Turmoil is finally ready, and was published back on March 18. The book took a long time in the making, but I am happy with its contents, and the help of Creative Talents Unleashed which published the book. Turmoil as the title indicates focuses on much of my own turmoil during the last five years of my life, perhaps even longer. I've suffered from depression, but I have also encountered many problems which writing and poetry has helped me cope with. This book is a result of those things, but with the love of words and poetry mixed in. Turmoil is available on Amazon and on my author page from Creative Talents Unleashed. Tomorrow I'll post a poem from the book so you can get an idea what kind of poems are in this collection.

A Nor'easter, poetry, and Child Game

Hello. We are having a beautiful Nor'easter with fat snowflakes coming down. The ground has been covered with the lovely white blanket snow has often been described as. Of course it is March and close to Spring, but I as always love this snowy weather and the isolation it can create. (yes yes I speak for myself...yes I know lol) I've been writing a good share of poetry these past few days while wrapping up my latest novel to the Child Series Child Game. Child Game will be the fourth book of my Child Series.

The protagonist of the series Tommy Hulette is lured back to New York when a suicide is committed in his late father's apartment. He learns that his tormentor and half brother Joe Sanchez is released from the prison hospital causing Tommy great concern and distress not only for his family, but for an innocent public. It doesn't take Tommy long to wonder if the suicide in question is linked to Joe in any way especially for its timing. In the meantime Tommy's wife…

The Release of Child Game...Reflections and thoughts.

The release of a new book is always nerve-wracking. Speaking for myself I experience the anxiety, the worrying, and all the isolation a new book release can cause. I probably should say you feel more helpless than isolated. Or it may be fair to say I feel both equally. Once an author puts a book out there (traditional or self-published even if the traditional often has the better track record and a larger fan base) it's out of our hands. We have no control how readers will react to it. All we can do is promote it, and believe in what we published. But its still nerve-wracking

Child Game is the new book in the Child Series. It is the fourth book where once again Tommy Hulette is the protagonist and narrator of his returning nightmare. Once again he must fight, despite everything falling apart around him. But he does fight. Forced to return to New York the city he escaped from years ago (from the painful events from Child Scorned) Tommy is not only fighting for himself he must figh…

Procrastination for a Writer

Good to be back readers, and fellow bloggers. As always I know how long its been. I always have reasons for these prolonged absences, and they have been real reasons. Unfortunately, procrastination has been one of those reasons, a big reason why I've struggled to finish some things. I'm hoping by admitting that, I can finally face it, and do something about it; starting with more writing. And more blogging.

Of course I have my usual writings. I am currently finishing the latest novel in my Child Series "Child Game" while simultaneously wrapping up J and K Christmas. I wanted to release J and K Christmas sooner this year even if just on kindle for awhile. I wanted to give the book time to circulate, to make its rounds, well I hoped to get it out there. Give it a chance to sell something by Christmas. I suppose I still have a little time, but I hoped to make it different this year.

But I'm a writer. I procrastinate. I wait too long. I get distracted. I'm a nig…
