I will attempt to junction a few sets of circumstances that are taking place in a streamlined fashion for brevity’s sake, but given that I haven’t done an update on this blog given other person projects, this will meander a bit, so please be prepared for that.

First and foremost, I appreciate those of you on FB who have been asking me about the Blog, because that’s where this Blog is mostly shared in historically speaking.  To clear that up, I have no intention of stopping this blog, nor my new one which deals with only writing and poetry with little sprinkles of life.  The only reason I’ve put this on hold is because I have a lot going on between work, a few books I’m writing simultaneously, and many other things I haven’t said anything about but will so in the future.

As far as the book Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All is concerned, I have received a proof copy and I am going to proof read it the next few days a few times given how important the book is to me.  Once that’s done, I’m undecided if I will order another proof copy, or just switch it from Private Access to Public Access for everyone given how sometimes Lulu has some serious glitches in formatting where certain lines align to the margins when they should be centered, and so on.

Moreover, one thing I plan on doing next year is begin my pursuit of publishing nonfiction research books into a variety of topics, and I have my first one narrowed down.  I hope to publish perhaps 2 or 3 if possible, but I’m uncertain depending how much I do with poetry and anything else that might arise.  That said I would love it if I can do one non-fiction book per quarter, but we will see.  That might be admittedly biting of more than I can chew, but, I rather aim too high than sell myself short.

I also plan on publishing additional poetry books the rest of the year, but that will come in due time.

Years ago, when I envisioned me writing, I envisioned me jumping into nonfiction first, and poetry well after that, 5 or 10 years later in fact.  Synchronistically enough, that didn’t happen, and I’m very glad.  The reason for this is because my writing has grown to the point that I now know I can handle the workload of writing a nonfiction book along with other things, where as in the past not only did I lack the confidence but I also believe my writing wasn’t where I was comfortable with given the myriad books that I want to write.

This is one of the things that I appreciate about life, that sometimes it flips things upside down for you, and where you first thought it might be a negative circumstance, in fact, it instead works in your favor and you end up doing more because of it, and grow more there in.

I could go on about a few other things, but I’ll cut it here given how much meandering I have carried out.  I do miss blogging on this Blog, and I have no intention on stopping this because of my plans for it.  That said, I appreciate all of you who I’ve told to hang on a bit, and I also appreciate the inputs on some of the things I’ve ran by you all for this blog and so on.  Thank you all so much for that.

You all have a wonderful evening.

This is my formal announcement for a book that I’ve been working on for nigh two months.  Given Zy Marquiez is my other pen name besides Noctis Blackburn, I am choosing to make an announcement here because of how much it means to me and because of how genuinely excited to I am to share this book.

As the above picture shows, the books name is Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All, which is a poetry book that I’ve put a lot of work and thought into for myriad reasons.

Now, the first point of the book is why I chose a color that’s mostly blue, with highlights of purple and so on, rather than something red?  That’s a fantastic question that those that have known about the cover and have given me feedback have asked.  One of the reasons for this is because this book is about Love Conquering All through all circumstances, and not just matters between two lovers.  More importantly, though Love is usually ascribed the color red for obvious reasons, Love truly knows no boundaries, no colors.

As such, I thought it fitting to go with a more bluish/purple color scheme, rather than a reddish/purple/pink.  Concurrently with that, red as Love is emblematic of Valentine’s Day, couples, romance, and such.  And while Love between lovers is a part of this book, it’s not the only part of the book.  I thought if I wrote the book from only that direction, it would leave a lot to be desired since Love affects all of us, no matter who we are, no matter whether we are in relationships or not, and so on.  That said, nigh all the poems take a two person structure since I find it easier to write from that aspect, and I find it more beautiful as well.  In conjunction with that, this book features the most amount of notations following well more than half the poems go extend the notion in many directions since human emotion is embedded deep within everyone and just leaving some poems without adding notations from them felt also incomplete since a romantic couple that seeks to do the right thing (or one person even) can still serve as a metaphor for a much more extensive view on Love.

Because of this, I opted to keep this color scheme because I like it a lot and everyone did as well, though they certainly wondered why bluish-purple rather than red/purple/pink and so on.  Now, another vanguard consideration in this color scheme which is just as important as anything else is because a follow up to this book is already in the works, and given that that book is about love in the traditional sense with couples, romance, and so on, it’s going to follow a traditional Valentine’s Day-type color scheme, though I still have no conceptualized the cover or anything.

Likewise, I didn’t want to publish two books on Love with very similar color schemes because although Love is traditionally seen in red, as mentioned before, Love truly knows no boundaries nor colors.  I would also like to make this part of a Trilogy, given that the first two books are covering important topics, although I believe the first one’s a lot more ‘objective’, while the second one is more ‘subjective’, I would still like to make it three books, although honestly I’m uncertain if I will be able to figure that out any time soon, so no promise there.

The final key consideration I want to discuss is why I chose the cover for this book.  If you look at it carefully, you can see that the background is a heart that’s creation an explosion of resonance out of Love, which is essentially the reverse of a blackhole.  Whereas a blackhole absorbs everything in sight leaving nothing left essentially, unconditional love is unconditional because it never stops, which I thought an incisive antithesis to something like a black-hole, which could mirror things that stem out of fear, hatred, and so on, which are important topics in the book.  I put a lot of thought into all aspects of this book, and am still continuing to make sure to add some tidbits, but on the whole, the book is nigh complete and it’s almost ready to go.  That said, it’s going to be around 2-3 weeks before it’s available to the public since I want to make sure that the book’s hardcover versions come out okay given that Lulu has some serious glitches when you uploading files

With everything previously discussed in mind, I would like to leave all of you with one final thought.

No matter where you are, who you are, what you do, and what you are going through, don’t ever forget that Love creates resonance, incredible resonance, and ultimately helps create the world you and all of us live in.  The world truly becomes what we collectively create it to be and the power to do that should never be underestimated because each of us has way more power to change things than we often realize.

I could go on and on, but that’s the gist of it.  I appreciate all of you taking time out of your day and reading this far.

Hope you all have a fantastic evening, and a phenomenal weekend!  Take care of yourselves and be safe.  Talk to you soon.
