Of Life and Death

image

“It seems to me that if you or I must choose between two courses of thought or action, we should remember our dying and try so to live that our death brings no pleasure to the world.” — John Steinbeck

We are born soft. Not weak, but with a certain sweetness deep inside our souls. As kids, we feel invincible in our desire to discover the world, to conquer it, to become who we want to be.

Nothing seems impossible. Nothing is out of reach.

But then we grow up and most often than not, we grow weary of others. We try to be like them, we want them to like us, we want to be accepted…

unrequited love?

It’s been almost six years since I wrote Jazz. It took me two weeks to write. Listening to the same song over and over again, not bothering to eat days on end, I wrote it with nothing else in mind but to get it all out of my head. Like a dream. It was no longer safe behind my eyelids.

But then I got it published and… well… people have all sort of ideas about what it is and what it all means and stuff like that. This is what this post is about, actually.

Because there are some people who think Jazz is an unrequited love story. They say it with the same kind of sympathy one has for Romeo and Juliet. As if cynicism has evaporated from the universe and my main character is simply unlucky and unloved – as if there’s some sort of beauty to be found in this predicament. Continue reading

It never ends…

Are you waiting for that time when “everything will fall into place?” When the economy will be better, when your situation will be better, when you’ll have different people around you? Are you wishing for a different kind of relationship, for a different you, for a different body, for a different career?

Are you thinking that there will be some day when you can rest? When there’s going to be comfort, when you’ll feel safe. When you’ll feel nothing but pride?

When all this pain and the stress and this suffering you’re going through will end? Continue reading

Last Paperback Bundle

”I completely fell in love with Cristian Mihai’s beautiful way of writing. His main character, Chris Sommers, is an embodiment of realism. His persona was much attune to what some of us feel about ambition, love, and the realization of heartbreaking disappointment. I felt a connection to him in a much deeper level than I’ve ever known. Mihai’s writing style just reaches out to you, captures you – without letting go for a moment. It’s also very personal that you just can’t help but love the main protagonist. There were times where it pained me to stop reading because I wanted to note down my favorite quotes from the novel because it was just that amazingly brilliant.” – E.S. praise for Jazz.

 

One copy of each of my titles(that’s a total of four books). Signed, delivered to your doorstep. Also, included will be an essay never before written. Just for you.

”This book was very unexpected. It made me think about what is means to be a writer, what the process of creation means not only to the creator but to those who are affected by what has been written. Much of what Mihai says here will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to put words on paper.” – Cynthia Dumarin, praise for The Writer.

 

Price?

$69.99.

$29.99, international shipping included. Only one bundle remaining.

”I was drawn in after reading the first page. Being a “hopeless” romantic I could empathize with both characters but I felt a connection with “him”. The authors description of loneliness, excitement, regret and pain is so intense, I became emotional while reading. It is gripping, honest and touching. Beautiful story…” – Melanie Lawson, praise for 2:22 AM.

Dome: A (sort-of) Foreword

When I was fifteen years old I came up with an idea for a novel. An immense dome-city at the South Pole. This was supposed to be the Big One. The masterpiece. The bestseller that would pave the road for fame and glory and stuff like that.

A Science-Fiction Thriller, the Dome being the catalyst for what happens. Why is it there? Defying common sense and much needed resources? What’s its purpose?

As it so happens with any controversial endeavor, there’s a group of people who try to find out what the hell is with this Dome. Thing is, they’re the good guys. At least, they’re not as good as we’d like them to be. They all have secrets and each and everyone of them has his own agenda.

But I do wonder… would you be able to hate the good guys?

Dome: Episode One is available as a free download:

Waiting

Hoping for something does not make it so. Desire without action is like a bird without wings. It is self-destructive even.

Waiting for something to happen guarantees one of two things:

When you’ll get it, you won’t know what to do with it, or you won’t appreciate it. Either way, sooner or later you’ll lose it.

You’ll never get it. Continue reading

Three Things

Life is simple. Happiness is simple. Success is simple. Love is simple. Even death is a simple process.

It’s us humans who make things intolerably complicated.

Read this recipe out loud. Only three things to be happy… It seems to good to be true, doesn’t it?

But what if it is true and you’ve been chasing after the wrong things all your life? Continue reading
