Summer Reading Suggestions

Memorial Day marked the beginning of the summer vacation season. Woohoo, right?! Well, for many of us that doesn’t mean much more than heat, a few poolside barbecues, and if we’re lucky maybe a week long summer vacation, but it’s still exciting— oh to be a school-aged child again and to have a 3 month […]

Lessons learned from 50 Shades of Grey

50 Shades of Grey was exploding in headlines once again last week, this time thanks to a very funny reading by one Ellen Degeneres. And apparently there are men who have read it… and enjoyed it? I guess it’s not so surprising, how many men wouldn’t want to read and fantasize about being a 27 […]

It’s Friday the 13th! Let’s Read About Zombies and Romance

Maybe I should try to work through at least some of The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory and Criticism. Although I’ve picked apart a few essays and Shakespearean sonnets in my lifetime for educational purposes, I am in no way, shape, or form a literary critic by training. So here is my caveat emptor, […]

The Semantics of the “D” word.

Disruption. Disruption. Say it again one more time in your head. Now out loud – disruption. Even the sound of the word connotes its meaning. It’s angular, awkward, and a bit hard, and frankly I find it disruptive to my normal speech patterns. These days it also happens to be a buzzword. But what does […]

Everyone has a story to tell.

At Kbuuk we believe that everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s a great work of fiction crouching in the innermost recesses of the imagination and consciousness, just waiting for the right opportunity to be released and spring forth into a creative tour de force, or it’s a time in your life that was […]

Ebook Pricing – Be Wary of the Paulo Coelho Strategy

Paulo Coelho is tremendously talented as an author. In fact, I consider him my favorite fiction writer. Each time I read one of his novels I feel a little bit closer to myself, or at least understanding a certain component of myself better than I did before. It all started in 2008 with The Witch […]

Weekend Creativity

Where do you find inspiration? Creating quality written words is a difficult endeavor. Ideas and thoughts turn into words on a page, and words on a page turn into sentences, sentences to paragraphs until finally there is a definite beginning, middle, and end. Where do the ideas come from? Recently I attended a writing meetup […]

St. Patty’s Day Review

This past weekend in order to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to review a work of Irish literature, you know put a little festivity in the air. Being from Louisiana, where there is a festival for everything, I carry the tradition of celebrating with me in adulthood. As time progresses, you’ll find I’m always […]

The most exciting project since Gutenberg!

Johannes Gutenberg revolutionized the world with his printing press. Mass production of books removed insurmountable barriers between authors and readers. Did this dramatic change in the publishing industry several hundred years ago produce bad books? Sure, but it also empowered authors to seed civilization with the potential for the industrial revolution leading to our modern […]
