Book Release! Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All Is Out Now! | #Poetry #Prose #Love #Books #LoveConquersAll #Amor VincitOmnia

As a preface, the above book that has just been released, Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All, has been released under my other pen name, Zy Marquiez. I know this might spur some confusion, but I lead off with that fact so individuals realize that I am one and the same, Noctis Blackburn and Zy Marquiez. As I continue to release books, the deliberate dichotomy will be incredibly significant, but that will be touched upon in the future.

With that out of the way, Amor Vincit Omnia means a lot to me for myriad reasons, much more than I could probably ever convey in words.  The fact that this book begins with an 11 page introduction shows how serious this book is to me, and how much I wanted to set a proper foundation for the argument that Love does in fact conquer all.

Moreover, the fact that this book is triple the size than my previous book Halcyon Days (word–count wise), also shows the significant extent I was willing to go to in order to extend the argument of Lover Conquering All as precise as possible under the intricate circumstances of such a broad topic.  This isn’t filler content at all however.  Not even close.  The book features dozens of notations, not unlike most of my previous books, examining various different circumstances of how Love does in fact hold the power to change society through all strata, and not simply from a romantic point of view.

Yes, many of the poems in the book are written from a couple’s point of view, or a romantic point of view, but the poems are often metaphors operating on multiples tiers, not unlike life operates physically and metaphysically simultaneously, and those metaphors are extrapolated upon in the notations with key poems in mind, and crucial concepts in mind like kindness, goodness, appreciation, and so on.

Now, at its core, the book features two different arguments of how Love Conquers All.  The first argument is the one that is covered through most of the book given its complexity, which is explained in the introduction.  The second argument is simple, very simple.  I happen to believe both are true.  That said, what I myself believe is irrelevant, as I make it a point to explain in the book, I share these thoughts for consideration purposes only, examining of how Love could hypothetically not only “conquer all”, but could also create resounding change in the world. 

Of course, the book is written with a very broad point of view in mind, sampling many subjective and objective points as well.  The point is life, Love, and the paths that each individual take, happen in so many complex ways, to try and explain away such a concept and emotion as Love in a “one–size–fits–all” type of way would be very ignorant, or perhaps, shortsighted.  Life is, and always will be much more complicated than that, particularly when emotions are involved.  Even so, I do think the topic of Love isn’t explored with as much depth and care as it should be, which is one of the vanguard reasons why I chose to write this book. 

Ultimately, what you believe about Love is your business, and you have every right to believe what you do because the life that you live is yours and yours alone, and the path that you are on is yours alone as well.  I simply hope that this book offers something of substance that will help you consider not only Life and Love in a kaleidoscope of circumstances and how those ultimately help you grow as a person, but also how Love can help create that type of resonance that in fact does ultimately help change the world.

Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All Book Release Update | #Love #Poetry #Prose #WritingCommunity

Just recently, I received my proof copy for the latest book I am soon to release, though admittedly under my Zy Marquiez pen name, it being Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All.

The above picture shows what the softcover book looks like. A quick note on that though, that ‘smudgy’ looking portion on the left of the white heart is just a glare. That said, the pinkish hearts that interlock do however look exactly as you see them. Just wanted to make sure people knew how it looked.

Now, the tentative plan is for me to start proof reading this copy today, and hopefully have the proof reading and additional Beta Feedback done so I can order another proof copy tomorrow, which should arrive mid next week. Given how important this book is to me, I simply don’t want to make this book available to public access without having had another go at the ‘final’ proof copy.

If all goes as planned, then the book should be available to the public by late next week.

You all have a great day.

Blackburn Musings #4 – Always Listen To Your Mom | #Mom #Family #Life #WritingCommunity #Prose #Poetry

You know, someone once told me “Always listen to your Mom, because one day you won’t be able too.” That hit me hard. I’ll always remember that piece of advice, well over 20 years ago.

Today, when I was helping her with something, she was venting about a random issue that I often try and urge her not to stress about given that its really not that important since she stresses herself out considerably, and I was going to tell her just to take it easy for a moment, but I didn’t. I just listened to her talk for the next 30 minutes because I knew that one day eventually she wouldn’t be talking to me anymore, and that just shattered me to pieces.

Thankfully she couldn’t tell because I’ve learn how to wear a mask so long that she can’t even tell the difference, plus the last thing I want her to do is worry about me when I’m just thinking about her and how much I’m going to miss her one day.
