Coincidence? 50 Shades Sequel Has a Midnight Sun Moment, or a Dynamite Publicity Stunt. (Probably Both)

2 comments
When I first read this article about the 50 Shades Sequel, Grey, being stolen one week before launch I thought, "Yeah... right." With an eyeroll and everything. Why pay for that kind of publicity when you can get it for nothing? Scandal, is worth it's weight in gold, and since scandal can crush you on social media, it must weigh an awful lot.

Still, the more I thought about this (just to get a laugh because I used to do marketing) the more it began to bother me. For those of you living under rocks, 50 Shades of Grey was originally a Twilight Fanfiction. Here is where things go from chuckle worthy to sad. Stephenie Meyer originally was working on a Twilight Sequel called Midnight Sun, that was Twilight from Edwards point of view. EL James' new book is 50 Shades from Christian's POV. The reason Meyer stopped working on Midnight Sun was because someone hacked her computer, stole it, and put it on the internet. So it is beyond cute that James' story that follows the same layout as Meyer's has almost the exact same thing happen.

EXCEPT!

The story wasn't stolen when it would be useless to publishers. It was stolen when they needed some pre-launch publicity. Coincidence? Is it just me? Discuss.

The Second PATH OF ANGELS Book is Out!

1 comment
Time is passing faster than I can catch. Minutes, Hours, Days, all gone like the morning dew on spiderwebs at noon. But faster. I totally slept through last Monday when this book came out!

If you missed it, here is the first Path of Angels Book: MICHAEL.

Now about the second book Zadekiel:

Blurb:
The path is lost.


With Michael gone, the mantle of leadership falls to Zadekiel. In this time of darkness, with tempers running short, Zade struggles to guide his brothers. Hope comes in the form of a green haired woman with a unique gift. She represents a way back to the path they lost when Michael disappeared.


Zephyr fills books with cryptic poetry, a powerful compulsion, which is more a curse than a blessing. With no control over her ability, she struggles to live a normal life. When she meets Zade, he insists her ability is a gift from God. Reluctantly, she agrees to join the cause–it’s hard to dispute a man with wings.


Now the path is found, but one question remains. Will it lead to further darkness?

Shortest Horror Stories, EVER.

Leave a Comment

I'm going to write you a horror story, it's called Monday.

So I've been meaning to blog more, except, I always want to do it at four in the morning. Closer to sunrise than bedtime. It's an awkward hour for me. I can read, I can write, but I can't promise I'll remember to spell my own name or use basic punctuation.

It's horror-able.

Seriously, I also make bad jokes after midnight.

Which maybe explains, this; List of the Shortest Horror Stories EVER.
By, me: Angela Kulig

10. We're out of bread.
9. SNAKE!

8. Do you hear that sound?
7. The battery in my Kindle is dead.
6. I'm sure it's safe.
5. What's that sound?
4. I know what I'm doing.
3. What could possible go wrong?
                                     2. SPIDER!
                                     1. MONDAY.

P.S.
Yes... I did decide to change my blog design at two in the morning. 




Spring for it... before it's too late!

Pigments of My Imagination, which until last week when Skeleton Lake passed it (again), was my best selling novel, is about to become Amazon exclusive. Not forever, just for three months starting next week. So if you want to get it on Kobo, or Nook, you better get it before the end of Sunday 3/8!'



Pigments of My Imagination has a 4.2 Star Rating on Amazon. Check out some of the reviews.

Pigments of my Imagination by Angela Kulig is a surrealistic coming-of-age novel centered on the exploits of Lucia, a new student at the Bayside Art Academy in East Texas. Wandering the halls of her new place of learning, she discovers a unique and mysterious group of prodigies who hold an irresistible attraction for her. Making the acquaintance of Ripley, she is introduced to Leo, a wunderkind who she feels particularly fascinated by. A sense of déjà vu makes her feel as if they had met somewhere before, setting the conflict into motion in Kulig’s romantic novel.

The theme of reincarnation resonates throughout the plot as Leo and Ripley bring the subject up in conversation, theorizing about how a group of ‘enlightened individuals’ might predict the rebirth of one of their kind. It sets up an epiphany for Lucia as it anticipates her discovery that her arrival at the Academy and her friendship is no mere coincidence. The element of kinship is also integral to the author’s tale as Lucia finds herself amidst a rivalry between the Painters and the Deceivers, as the enigmatic Mr. Garcia watches and waits to see how Lucia’s choices and allegiances will affect her life journey.

Kulig’s narrative is an interesting blend of literary concepts, including adolescent bonding and the rite of passage which is flavored by the supernatural manipulations and intrigue. Characters such as William Blake and Oliver Buchanan give us a blend of the old and new, the world of classicism merging with the metaphysical in an entertaining storyline. Pigments of my Imagination by Angela Kulig is one definitely worth checking out. 

 ***

I received the book and within a day and a half I had it read. I was so into Lucia and Leo, I could almost really feel their energy. I feel almost a little bad for reading it so fast because I did ignore my son...........but in my defense he was ignoring me while playing on his Leappad :-) Either way, amazing story line and I can not WAIT until the next book is released! So think this should be a movie series.........

 ***

"Pigments of My Imagination" isn't your average novel with an obvious plot and a straightforward concept, rather it is a refreshingly original story with fluid storytelling that sucks you in and takes you on a compelling ride filled with twists and turns. Angela Kulig does a wonderful job of engaging the reader with a vivid writing style that really does paint each scene with a fine-tipped brush; it's sharp, lush, descriptive, emotional, non-linear and fantastically addictive. Lucia's story (and life) is unusual and captivating in it's complexity, as she tries to unravel the mysteries surround her life and the school she attends. Ms. Kulig has a gift for storytelling that just charms and entertains the reader, creating a sharply woven tale that jumps from emotional drama with action-packed science fiction to introspective fantasy and more. Overall, this was a vivid and wholly original novel that was well worth the read; I would recommend it to anyone looking for a compelling and well-written science fiction/fantasy novel to sink their teeth into.

And keep this in mind...

Blurb

There is only one path.
Born mortal along with his three brothers, Michael is an Archangel with a specific role: hunt fallen angels and send them back to Hell. He is determined in his mission, never straying from his appointed path, until he meets Lake Divine, and discovers there may be more to his beliefs than blind duty.
But Lake is not who he seems. Offspring of a human and a fallen angel, a Nephilim, Lake must choose his own destiny: give in to the coldness and embrace the dark, or seek the light and rise above the sins of his father.
Two paths lay before them, but only one has the potential to destroy them both.

It's Tuesday.


I am sure you are wondering why I am pointing it out. It's because I am always talking about Monday. Monday is this, Monday is that, oh, no, it's pre-Monday.

On Twitter, I am infamous for my personal beef with the start of the work-week. Now I am trying to change that. Monday is a product of my imagination. It's never as bad as I make it out to be, It's not bigger or more terrible than any other day, it doesn't have longer teeth, or spikes, or bad breath. Monday is twenty four hours, the same as any other day.


So, it's Tuesday. Monday did not maim me, or maul me, or even leave me in the dust. Somehow, the world carried on; and I want to know:

HOW WAS YOUR MONDAY?
