Book Trailer: “Zombies from Space…and Vampires”

This is a really cool video. It is much more than just a book trailer.

The Chamber Magazine

Long story short, I came across this book trailer on YouTube and thought I would have to share it. It is a fun and intense trailer. I don’t know anything about the book, as you see here, or about the author (Angela B. Chrysler), but it looks like it might be a fun read. In any case, turn up the volume, buckle up, take a shot, and get ready. Let me know if you would like to see more films and trailers like this.

10 Short Stories with Great Dialogue That Aren’t “Hills Like White Elephants” — Literary Hub

Before you get excited: I have no problem with “Hills Like White Elephants.” In this classic story, Ernest Hemingway demonstrates a masterful, subtle use of dialogue—so much so that it has become, if not a totally clichéd, then at least a ubiquitous text in creative writing classrooms. I myself encountered it at least four times…10 Short … Continue reading 10 Short Stories with Great Dialogue That Aren’t “Hills Like White Elephants” — Literary Hub

Poll: Changing The Chamber’s Logo

Take this opportunity to share your thoughts on a decision facing The Chamber.

The Chamber Magazine

I am considering changing The Chamber’s logo from this one, whom I call Orly (picked by a random name generator) for ease of reference:

Orly

to this one, which I am calling Damnatia until I come up with something better:

Damnatia

Though I have always liked Orly for her stare, mysterious look, simple composition, and the unusual element of her hand as she leans against an unseen wall (which I cropped out). I can imagine that many viewers are perplexed by the hand and may not be able to see all the details that are obscured by the dark composition. Another reason is that I am acquiring business cards for The Chamber and to have Orly on them might confuse people, not having seen me, might think she is me or my daughter or wife or mistress or something. Whereas, it is fairly obvious that Damnatia is not an actual…

Update: The Chamber on YouTube

Here’s an update on what’s happening at The Chamber.

The Chamber Magazine

Over the last few days, I have been experimenting with developing a YouTube presence for The Chamber. At this point, I am not much of a filmmaker. I don’t have the time, experience, or equipment to develop a professional YouTube video. Ergo, I have been experimenting with public domain, royalty-free videos I can find at Pexels.com or Pixabay.com using free video editing software at Kizoa (using the basic free membership demands that I have the Kizoa logo on my works) or the very simple stuff available using the YouTube Studio editor. Above is about the best film I have developed so far. I have a longer one of a minute and fifteen seconds in the works. As I get the hang of making these, they are becoming easier to make.

I have not yet developed an ultimate goal for these videos other than to use as basic advertising on YouTube…

“Little Girl Blue”, my poem has been published by eclectic THE CHAMBER MAGAZINE.

An Awadh Boy's Panorama : tracing words on these filigreed, discerning fingertips.

Hush! she is a spirit of fine fettle clad in whole nine yards of mystique, haunted by a gossamer fabric of heresy. Maligned in her charm The halo of an apparition,  she unfurls her midnight legend.                                       […]
