‘Nuff Ced – Call It a Come Back (and other ramblings!)

Ced Pharaoh-Frustration

Technical Difficulties are like glitches in the matrix!

I’ve experienced a year’s worth of tech issues in the past week.

On this day, exactly 7 days ago, a great project, The City: A Cyberfunk Anthology published by MVmedia was released as an ebook! I was too excited! Why? I’m one of 18 writers whose work is listed in the book! Awesome, right? In addition, my new website was done and ready to go! Just one problem! My site was erased as I tried publishing it! Now, it could have been my fault but I’ve been doing this for sometime and…let’s just say the file upload interface had some issue on the hosting company’s side. Anyway, I missed my day(s) to promote on my blog and other co-authors of The City: A Cyberfunk Anthology because my blog was erased too!

It took some time but my files were reloaded! Yes!

No! Everything was out of order and the site was garbage!

Luckily, I back up most all of my raw files so after Fighting through Frustration, I said Fff…. IT and I scrapped everything!

Destroy and Build!

Now I’m Back!

I

WILL

NOT

LOSE!

So here it is! My new site! Click this >> Ced Pharaoh site!

Take a look and let me know what you think! It is brand new, so I’m tweaking it but I’m adding extra items every week!

Apologies to The City co-authors, for the delay and setback! I’m back on the promotion today!

Speaking of which, I have a list of artist interviews to drop in the next week. They were delayed due to working on the new site, sorting through the tech problems and rebuilding the new site. So here is a preview of interviews to be posted very soon!

  • Glyph Sputnik

  • Yorli Huff

  • Damian Duffy

  • Stacy Robinson

My son has a site as well! The Zion Show | The Art Of Life! It is geared towards all ages. He has a lot of cool interviews and reviews that he’s done. Please check it out and leave a comment on his site as well.

Final note!  Creators, artists, in fact everyone…Back UP your data! Your images, conversations etc. Anything on the web can disappear forever. Social media sites are not excluded! If those business go out of business, all of your memories will be gone too! Take some time and make copies!
I’m behind on writing so that’s it for now. The next post is dropping soon about the latest project that I’m involved in – The City: A Cyberfunk Anthology!

Stay Healthy!

Stay Positive!

Stay Kinetic!

Stay Creative!

Peace,

The Eight, Skorn and The Black Rose – Indie Comic Book Reviews

The Eight, Skorn & The Black Rose by Abdul H. Rashid / AHR Visions, L.L.C. are just a few of the offerings from this visual media company. Below are my thoughts on their preview issues.

——————-

Securing The World From The Ever-Present Threat of Evil Supernatural & Other-worldly forces…a race of Immortals fight non-stop to sustain balance. Amongst them..an Elite unit exists! The Eight!

The Eight #0 – The Last Transmission Of David Essex begins in a very cinematic way with a flashback served as a pre-recorded digital feed. Something or someone has attacked a space base and nothing can seem to stop it! The Eight #0 is a good appetizer for what seems to be a grand scale event. I liked the flashback premise and eagerly wanted to know more. With only 7 pages of actual story, I am expecting more backstory and reveals of who The Eight are. There is a full page promo attached showing 8 males, but I will have to wait and see if these are the heroes. Now I will say, if those are the heroes, seeing 8 males and not one female, throws me a bit, but redemption comes in the next review below……

——————-

Dedicated to a Self-Imposed Mission to Protect those who cannot protect themselves, Angelica Salazar vows to show the criminal blight that a fury is upon it!

Skorn #0 – Curtain Rises opens with a silhouette of a woman getting dressed in a hero outfit and ends with a dynamic pose of the street vigilante. The narrative’s premise is one where the heroine is being setup but to what end and what reason, is not revealed..yet. Speaking of reveal in Skorn #0, Abdul has a pinup of Issue #1 with another full view of the heroine, Skorn and she looks SICK!! I can’t wait to see how she develops.

——————-

Solomon Moor. Billionaire. Philanthropist. Businessman. Crime-Lord? Under the guise of a mysterious underworld figure, both feared and respected by the criminal society, Moor works to tear down the vile structure from the inside out. But, he walks the fine line between hero and villain.

The Black Rose #0 – Party Break opens with the high-tech survelliance of a criminal by Solomon. Issue #0 is very short without much detail but the next issue will hopefully delve into who Solomon Moor is and how he came to be a crime lord.

The AHR Visions’ comic book previews look very promising. The art work and colors look good, compliments of Abdul H. Rashid and Alexander Cutri!  Support Indie Creators and Their Projects! Stay tuned and learn more about AHR Vision’s upcoming releases here:
