Book Release! Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All Is Out Now! | #Poetry #Prose #Love #Books #LoveConquersAll #Amor VincitOmnia

AmorVincitOmnia
To preface this with a small caveat, I know this might spur some confusion, but I (Zy Marquiez) write under two pen names, Zy Marquiez, and Noctis Blackburn.  I lead off with that fact so individuals realize that I am one and the same, Noctis Blackburn and Zy Marquiez.  As I continue to release books, the deliberate dichotomy will be incredibly significant, but that will be touched upon in the future.  One pen name (Blackburn) will focus strictly on poetry and fiction, while the other (Marquiez) will focus on poetry, fiction, and research based books with significant source material.  This dichotomy will be more evident in the future, but I mention it because that’s my plan with each pen name.

With that out of the way, Amor Vincit OmniaLove Conquers All means a lot to me for myriad reasons, much more than I could probably ever convey in words.  The fact that this book begins with an 11 page introduction shows how serious this book is to me, and how much I wanted to set a proper foundation for the argument that Love does in fact conquer all.

Moreover, the fact that this book is triple the size than my previous book Halcyon Days (word–count wise), also shows the significant extent I was willing to go to in order to extend the argument of Lover Conquering All as precise as possible under the intricate circumstances of such a broad topic.  This isn’t filler content at all however.  Not even close.  The book features dozens of notations, not unlike most of my previous books, examining various different circumstances of how Love does in fact hold the power to change society through all strata, and not simply from a romantic point of view.

Yes, many of the poems in the book are written from a couple’s point of view, or a romantic point of view, but the poems are often metaphors operating on multiples tiers, not unlike life operates physically and metaphysically simultaneously, and those metaphors are extrapolated upon in the notations with key poems in mind, and crucial concepts in mind like kindness, goodness, appreciation, and so on.

Now, at its core, the book features two different arguments of how Love Conquers All.  The first argument is the one that is covered through most of the book given its complexity, which is explained in the introduction.  The second argument is simple, very simple.  I happen to believe both are true.  That said, what I myself believe is irrelevant, as I make it a point to explain in the book, I share these thoughts for consideration purposes only, examining of how Love could hypothetically not only “conquer all”, but could also create resounding change in the world.

Of course, the book is written with a very broad point of view in mind, sampling many subjective and objective points as well.  The point is life, Love, and the paths that each individual take, happen in so many complex ways, to try and explain away such a concept and emotion as Love in a “one–size–fits–all” type of way would be very ignorant, or perhaps, shortsighted.  Life is, and always will be much more complicated than that, particularly when emotions are involved.  Even so, I do think the topic of Love isn’t explored with as much depth and care as it should be, which is one of the vanguard reasons why I chose to write this book.

Ultimately, what you believe about Love is your business, and you have every right to believe what you do because the life that you live is yours and yours alone, and the path that you are on is yours alone as well.  I simply hope that this book offers something of substance that will help you consider not only Life and Love in a kaleidoscope of circumstances and how those ultimately help you grow as a person, but also how Love can help create that type of resonance that in fact does ultimately help change the world.

Blog Update: Published My First Book The Twin Flame, Future Projects & More | #Poetry | #Prose | #CreativeWriting | #NoctisBlackburn

May 15, 2019

I got a pleasant surprise today.

Today I (finally!) received a hardcopy of my first book ever, The Twin Flame, published under a different pen name, Noctis Blackburn.  This poetry book features 111 poems.  I couldn’t hesitate and showed my Mom first and she loved it.  I really love the glossy cover and how the book turned out.

TTF2

I decided to publish under a different pen name than Zy Marquiez because although I do plan on publishing poetry under this name (more on that in a second), I plan on keeping different themes under different pen names, not unlike what Nora Roberts does when she publishes under J.D. Robb.  Many other authors do this as well.

Moreover, under Zy Marquiez I plan on (hopefully) publishing non-fiction research books about a few different topics in the future, all of which will be thoroughly researched and footnoted to the hilt, but will have non-mainstream topics not unlike what is covered in this blog.  These topics will certainly make people incredibly judgmental.  This is the vanguard reason why I will employ different pen names.

That said, if people find out, it matters not too much since it is me either way.  I am merely doing this to simplify given how many people can judge you by merely knowing one component in life without knowing you at all, especially nowadays with the internet being what it is.  This is the very example of judging a book by its cover, or judging a person by one circumstance.

Now, the above book is a collection of poetry as the subtitle alludes.  I’m incredibly thrilled because I’ve been hoping to publish a book for years now, but due to health issues and myriad circumstances, I never got around to it.   At least now that first step is officially done.  Now for more.

Within a week or so I am going to be doing a giveaway for paperbacks of this book for those interested.  I first needed to double check the hardcopy and make sure that everything was fine and ready to go.  That said, if you are interested in the book, Lulu does have a discount of 15% at this very moment, though it is only good for one more day or so.  And for heaven’s sake, don’t order the Hardcover because of the price!  That’s just Lulu fleecing people.  The link provided is of the softcover because it’s 60% less than the hardcover.  I only decided to publish a hardcover for me personally, as I love hardcovers, and because it wasn’t going to add too much to the publishing process once I got the hang of it.  Now for future projects.

Within a week or so I am going to publish another poetry book called A Kaleidoscope Of Possibilities published under Zy MarquiezThis book will be poetry mostly published in the past on various websites and social media platforms, sprinkled with a heavy dose of notations throughout.  The book is essentially complete and just needs some touch ups and the final stamp.  This book will not follow a single topic but will be a collation of poetry that’s as old as 20 years old, and as new as poems written the last 12 months and so on.  This poetry book is a book about considering deeper aspects of life, obstacles, fear, love, and all topics written about therein of which there are many.  This book does not follow any single theme whatsoever.  This is why I chose to go with ‘Kaleidoscope’ as the first word, while using ‘Possibilities’ as the anchor because possibilities are what life is all about.

Another book which is nigh a complete, which I will publish under either Tristen Troy or Zy Marquiez (with an alias of Halcyon Halo) is Halcyon Days.  A time table of two weeks should not be out of the realm of possibility.  It really depends on what other things fall on my lap.  This book will follow a positive theme throughout, be it romance, life, time, etc.  I’m undecided if the book will be 100% unpublished content, or if a fraction of it will have already been featured in the concurrent Instagram account.  I can’t wait to get this one out as I’ve had most of it complete for almost 3 weeks, I just needed to iron out The Twin Flame and finish the touch ups of Kaleidoscope of Possibilities.  This book will feature 111 poems total.

Now, something else that I’ve recently begun, but is probably at least a month off which will be published under the moniker Noctis Blackburn is A Heart Of Darkness.  This book will feature an in-depth view of many of my fears, be them love, life, darkness, general fears, the pain of dealing with my grandmother’s passing recently, fears of losing my mom, and many other themes.  Some of the poems could be positive, just really depends on what one gets from it.  Notations might be added to this one, like Kaleidoscope of Possibilities, but I am still undecided.  This book will also feature 111 poems as well.

The final book that’s slated to be published for now under Zy Marquiez/ The Lightning Baron is a book tentatively called Lightning & Thunder Bring Frightening Wonder.  This book will feature lightning, storms, and many other darker themes, mostly as metaphors for fear, pain, suffering and more.  I was going to publish this book sooner but I am undecided whether I want to do 111 poems, or many more.  The vanguard reason for this is because many of these poems have already been shared on this blog, but they are short.  This is why I changed from 77 to 111, but I might increase that a lot more, though I am still uncertain to how many.  I would really love to feature photos with this book, but I’m not sure how much that will add to the price.  I will probably keep it simple for now.

There are other projects that I have in mind, but that’s the lions share for now.  I just wanted to give you guys an update as to why I haven’t been as active on this blog with reviews, posts, quotes, and the like.  That said, stay tuned because there will be a lot more coming!

Hope you guys have an amazing day.  And more than anything, don’t forget to take at least one step every day towards making your dreams continue.

Torrid Frustration | #Poetry | #Poem | #Prose | #Love | #Family | #Darkness | #Writing | #Loss | #Quote |


If I stop and think I’ll quickly sink into torrid frustration
I won’t drop the ink, I’ll sickly think of horrid desolation

Note: This echoes my sentiments at the moment perfectly.  If I write, my mind is engaged, thinking.  But if when I take breaks its a sinking feeling of mental quicksand.

Lastly, the picture is a metaphor for my mind at the moment.

Note: Trying to stay positive.  I posted the pier because going to the beach was one of my favorite memories when growing up.  I miss that place so much.  Our family would go there and it was always a blast.  Ironically, I was terrified of the water the first time I ever went to the beach, though that’s a really long story.  Still though, the picture is a welcome change.
