Let’s talk a little about Piteraq Dusk.

This novelette was first written in July 2015. Piteraq Dusk was also my first novelette I ever wrote as I competed in Camp NaNoWriMo that year and beat that challenge. Truth be told, most of the books I’ve written so far are one to four years old, but I never published them until now.

I wanted to try something different with the -punk suffix. Sure, there’s steampunk, cyberpunk, oceanpunk, etc. An idea came up with a frozen landscape in the distant future, so I decided to write a short book utilizing that concept. Since I also have a thing for diverse protagonists, I wanted to have a biracial character who could be in that environment, so I made Jaroslav into someone of mixed Aleutian and…

When things don’t go according to plan.

Without getting into too much detail, I’ve had a whole whirlwind of things going on.

There are some good things like finally publishing some of my books after writing various novels, novellas, novelettes, and cell phone novels over the past four years. I’ve been writing these kinds of stories, but I never showed them to the world until I started my fiction blog last year or even when I wrote Hollandus Landing live on the internet for 6 months straight.

However, there are some less-than-desirable things, too.

Some major plans have happened which caused me to halt so many creative projects that I planned to work on. Life can certainly get in the way, so I have to adapt. This doesn’t mean I’m going to quit my fiction or my musical endeavors, so don’t freak out about that. It just means that after a certain point, there will be a hiatus before getting back into the swing of things.

It’s not some catastrophic thing that happened, but I do have to deal with adult stuff and helping out a lot of people including my family.

Over the summer, you won’t see as much content until a certain point, so please bear with me.

Thank you.

Upcoming Books

I have more books coming in May…

C. M. B. Bell's Writing Universe

I’ve written several books, but I never had the courage to publish them until now.

In May, I’m going to release one novel and two novelettes. Pre-Orders will be up soon and I will post links once I get the information.

I won’t say too much, but I will say the names of the books are called Kyvariz, Pitaraq Dusk, and Transparent Sabbath respectively. All of them are one-shot stories and I actually wrote them in both NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo years ago.

Stay tuned.

So I discovered a metal band from Togo the other day.

I needed to discover some new music since I’ve faced some repetition with my typical playlists. After watching a music video from a band I haven’t listened to in a while called Wrust.

Then I found these guys.

This is Arka’n. They are a metal band from Lomé, Togo of all places. Besides some typical metal instrumentation, they mix elements of African rhythms, reggae, rap, and funk. I thought it was cool how coalesced the musical styles were and how creative their songs are. This was a pleasant surprise for me as I wanted to find some new music.

Shame on Starbucks #BoycottStarbucks

I normally don’t make posts like this on any of my blogs, but I’ve been so disgusted lately that I just have to talk about it.

Some of you who have followed me here or any of my other blogs should know that I cannot stand racism. As a minority myself, I’ve been profiled at shops and restaurants before even though I was buying something. I hear about the crap going on at Starbucks as seen in these first two videos here and I’m just sickened by it. In 2018, discrimination still exists. No one regardless of race or ethnicity should be treated poorly because of their skin color. I’m not going to let companies disrespect people just because I don’t look like most people in America.

Fortunately, boycotts are easy if you think about it. All you have to do is NOT spend money. No need to go out on the streets, vote, or causing a ruckus. What you can do is to support your local coffee shop businesses (bonus points if they carry Fair Trade products). You get to invest in your community and help your hometown’s local economy.

Until they change, then I’m not giving a penny to Starbucks.
