Be sure to follow our blog hop and be introduced to some exciting reads as well as works in progress.

Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:

Q: What is the working title of your book?
A: The working title for my new book is called The Watchman. It is the first of a new series I've started with a good friend of mine that I am really excited about. If you enjoyed "The Prison Chronicles" series, I really think you'll like this new one.

Q: Where did the idea come from for the book?
A: My friend and I met up one day and had a discussion that centered on some very intense spiritual matters that have always been intriguing to me, and after a lengthy discussion we decided to turn it into a series. This series will be one that would be a Christian rebuttal to the Harry Potter series.

Q: What genre does your book fall under?
A: It will fall under Christian fiction.

Q: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
A: Wow...not really sure about that one. I would love to hear suggestions from the readers after they've had a chance to read the book.

Q: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A:  The Watchman is story about a warrior for Christ who has been chosen in the 21st century to battle the forces of evil through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Q: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
A: It will be self-published through my company Black-Smith Enterprises.

Q: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A: Thus far it has been a working progress due to the fact that I have had several other film production projects taking place one right after the other, so it has been a challenge to nail down a solid date of completion.

Q: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? 
A: The Left Behind Series, which includes:

Q: Who or What inspired you to write this book?
A:  Just seeing how dark all of the stories are getting and how they make everything evil seem good and glamorous. I wanted to put something out there that will shed light on those things from a biblical stand point.

Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A: The Watchman will definitely be a book that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. The protagonist is a character that you will get to know intimately and grow to love as a person who is walking in his destiny while dealing with very real situations. For those who are familiar with any of my previous work, you will know to expect the unexpected and be ready to experience a wide range of emotions.

Movie Review: Flight

In the new movie Flight, Denzel Washington plays Whip Whitaker, a troubled pilot, who finds himself on the brink of  heroism and utter destruction after completing a miracle landing  that saves the lives of all but six passengers on a doomed flight.

A known drug and alcohol abuser amongst his family and friends, Whitaker becomes the subject of an intense federal investigation immediately following the crash after it is discovered that he had both drugs and alcohol in his system while flying the plane. As he struggles to fight the battle of his life and hold on to sobriety at the same time, he is forced to take stock of who he really is and what it's really going to take to get his life back on track.  

While Washington's performance in this film is as solid as ever, I can't really say that there was really anything earth-shatteringly great about this film. Don Cheadle was palpable as the passively-aggressive, hard-nosed attorney, and John Goodman was slightly humorous as the reliable all-around neighborhood pusher. Not to say that Flight wasn't a good movie, I just didn't feel that it was the Academy Award winning performance that it has been portrayed to be in the media.

Flight has all the elements of a good movie that could've had the potential to be...something more. Then again maybe I'm just a little bias because I'm accustomed to Denzel Washington movies usually being able to move me to some kind of emotion and this one didn't even inspire a sniffle. But as they say "Ce la vie!"

Overall, Flight gets a solid 6 on a scale of 1-10. I say go see it just because it's Denzel and come back and let me know if you agree with my assessment or not. Seriously...I really want to know what you think.
