Project Super Nex – Chapter Twenty – Finally Home

“Morning, Maykal.”  Her voice slides through the darkness and into my ears. I feel her sit on the side of my bed seconds before my eyelids drag open. Mom looks so youthful and carefree in her cardigan and beige corduroys. Her smooth olive skin and chocolate ombré hair seem to glow in the gray light … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Twenty – Finally Home

Project Super Nex – Chapter Nineteen – Always

I was five when Mom told me about the lusiere’s role in Teönor mythology. Apparently, a group of demon gods known collectively as the Urogotha had a bothersome habit of scheming to overthrow Metura, ruler of the heavens and the mortal world. One of their favorite tactics was dispatching spirits to possess mortals and bend … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Nineteen – Always

Obviously Nolan is a filmmaking genius, but it helps that he’s a marketing wizard too—casting Harry Styles in Dunkirk to draw in One Direction fans, dropping the Tenet trailer on Fortnite to catch the attention of gamers, and now his collaboration with Scott. The … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Interstellar

Project Super Nex – Chapter Seventeen – In The Fractured Island

When I walk into the Citadelle through the main entrance, the atmosphere of the lobby is abuzz with a palpable tension, as if preceding a crucial event in the future. Warbearer Overseers seem to frown even deeper at me from their giant portraits, the battles between the crimson force and Grimhet emanate more violence from … Continue reading Project Super Nex – Chapter Seventeen – In The Fractured Island

My 2 Cents on Too Much and Never Enough

What’s new, readers? For anyone who’s in the mood to check out a podcast, I’m giving a shout-out to Within The Pages. The two cohosts, who just launched it in June, offer entertaining reviews for young adult and new adult novels in the genres of fantasy and science-fiction.
