Mutilated Return

MUTILATED RETURN

 MUSHTAQUE B. BARQ -

Clouds had overshadowed the glimmering glances of the sun and the nature seemed to prepare a stage for something unusual for it was getting darker and darker with a drizzle making it horrible. Ashraf opened the window to have a glimpse of the Square just a few steps ahead of the main gate. He called his son Amjad to bring home milk and bread for morning tea. “ Dis BicharisTainShungna” his mother pleaded”. (Let the poor kid sleep longer).…

Pre-paid book publishers

Hey everyone, I am just wondering, is it normal to have a book publisher charge you for the full price before they begin to print your books.  We had some books done and they said we had to completely pay up front.  Of course, we now know this was a very bad idea for us.  Lots of problems!!!!  But, I was just wondering if anyone out there has had to do this?  Is this normal?  Is this standard policy in the self published book industry?

Thanks for your comments

I recently had a battle with cancer and I do not want…

S-P and J



By: F. John Surells



Whenever I’ve sought conclusions, I’ve found that by immersing myself amidst all that’s already occurred, I’ve been able to deduce what still should happen. And I’ve learned that self-pity and jealousy are the two greatest sins, and not because of any immediate effects they may cause, after all they’re “inactive” transgressions, but rather because of the often tragic, and sometimes fatal activities they may eventually engender.

And I’ve come to…

Spiritual Blast

I have been involved in the so called 'paranormal' to one degree or another since young.

However, Coming from a strong Christian background has also had an impact on my life and at times seem to contradict what I am supposed to believe and practice or demonstrate. 

Working in The Far East was also a cultural, spiritual and educational influence on my life and experiences.

The words 'psychic' does not go down well with many even today but it simply isn't just about…

After the first book signing

I had my first book signing at Barnes & Noble November 10th. It was an extremely exciting day for me. Unfortunately, my baby sister was away in Sacramento, Ca, so she was unable to attend. My older sister was originally supposed to come in from Dallas, Tx, but something came up. She couldn't make it either. 

I had my ex husband's support, but he was taking care of our kids, so he didn't attend. 

I posted it all over every social media site to which I have a login. Many of…
