    EARTH SQUADRON 3D MOVIE!

    The Earth is threatened by unknown aliens who travel from their home planet to Earth to subjugate its people and loot it of resources using their superior technology and vicious nature.

     

    The Earth Squadron Project (www.EarthSquadron.com)is moving along nicely, so far we have successfully fleshed out the short story into an 83-page feature length script. The Earth Squadron logo has been completed and we have created over 20 characters, ships and alien creatures.

    As of March 5 2014, we were able to successfully raise over $3000 during our 60-day indiegogo crowd funding campaign! We will utilize these funds for audio, voice actors, ram, 3D accelerator cards and promotional materials.

    We still need additional funding for packaging, marketing, trade shows, film festivals, and production equipment. Please donate to our campaign so that we can continue the progress we all already made. Thank you in advance for any assistance that you provide.

    A Word From The Author - Throw-away stories

    Posted by A. Y. Emanuel on July 25, 2016 at 5:30pm 1 Comment

    I have what I call throw-away stories. These are stories that I never write down. They are sometimes complex or simple. I run through them in different ways, living in one character or another. But they are not full and complete stories, like the ones I share. They are not crystallized, like the ones I write down, but remain fluid, mutable. Sometimes I come up with the greatest ideas through them - and I might adapt it and write it down for another story. But these stay in my head, and I live and breath them and forget the great scenes I come up with and start them over again when the story can't advance any further. They don't have to make sense or be plausible in any way.

     

    What's the point?

     

    Well, for me, there are several points to this. The first is getting to sleep. Without these stories, I would not be able to quiet my brain enough for somnolence. The problems and worries of my life would just run over and over in my head,…

    A Word From The Artist - About My Skill

    Posted by A. Y. Emanuel on July 23, 2016 at 12:56pm 0 Comments

    My mother always says that I have natural talent as an artist. That's always nice to hear, but the truth is, that there is nothing natural about it.

    I have, basically, two talents: writing, and the ability to learn anything. But even writing I worked to develop and polish. Drawing did not come naturally to me at all. It took decades and thousands of failed attempts to get to the level I have reached, and I am still striving for more. My father taught me the basics of the face when I was about ten. The rest I had to learn painstakingly, garnering what information I could from numerous sources, in the days before the widespread use of the internet. I learned to draw muscly men from anatomy books and body building magazines. I…

    A Word From The Author - How I Come Up With Names

    Posted by A. Y. Emanuel on July 22, 2016 at 10:16am 0 Comments

    From Brii Richards:

     

    Hello! The addition of a word from the author was a nice touch to your website. There's been something I've thought about ever since I started reading your books and am wondering if you might want to expand upon. The names of people, places and things in your books are all very unique and interesting. But aside from just names, you also have your characters commit the act of naming. What are the conventions that you have your characters abide by in naming. How do you come up with the names. For example, we have a seilel. But then you named the tour the Bloody Eseilel. Just putting that E changed the word to a new word, building on the meaning of the original word, but adding a ton of nuance. All in a little "e"! And don't even get me started on the Ava'Lonan Herstories.

     

    Thanks for the second excellent question, Brii!

     

    Ah, yes, names.

     

    This is one of the harder aspects of writing a story, at least for…

    FREE SEMINAR !! BLACK TO THE FUTURE - RETURNING TO THE PAST TO SAVE THE FUTURE

    THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

    Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
