Loiacono Literary Agency takes on Rasheed Mohammed’s Pockets of Insight — Life-affirming observations in five minutes or less!

Pockets of Insight was created to give ‘voice’ to many of the innovative thinkers and reformers of the past and present whose candid observations and conclusions about life and the human experience lay dormant and unattended among the vast assortment of books, magazine articles, and web pages. How convenient would it be to have a sampling of their ‘takes on life,’ categorized by subject, simply written, requiring little reading, and not blemished by gratuitous jargon? Gratifying, practical, common sense solutions to many of life’s social challenges in five minutes or less. Take away solid authoritative advice and wisdom of the ages that makes you say to yourself, “How wonderful! I am so glad I read this and feel motivated to become a better person because of it!”

“A writer does the most who gives his reader the most knowledge and takes from him the least time.” (Charles Caleb Colton, Pulitzer prize author). Pockets of Insight succeeds in doing both.

With a background in accounting for the past thirty years, this is Rasheed Mohammed’s inaugural literary venture, his insight into the human element through psychological anecdote, prose, and quotes from famous philosophers is enlightening and profound. He is currently writing Things to Ponder, an assortment of eye-opening one-liners featuring six themed subjects:

Family
Life Truths
Observations
Religion
Politics

Romancing the Wind

The man flying the 3 kites is in his 80s, and he’s from Canada. He comes to the Washington State International Kite Festival every year. His skin is like leather as he normally flies with his shirt off. He is deaf, so when he flies we hold our hands up and wave them for applause. He flies 2 with his hands and the 3rd one is attached to his waist. Enjoy!

You must watch to the end to see the amazing landing of that last kite!  I would have those kites so tangled up, you could never get them separated again!  And of course, make sure the volume is turned up because the music is wonderful and totally reflects the soaring of the kites.  Beautiful

Ed Protzel’s Honor Among Outcasts has won a gold medal in the Literary Titan Book Awards!

 

Honor Among Outcasts is book two in the Dark Horse Trilogy. The first, The Lies That Bind, introduces us to Durk, a group of freedom-seeking slaves, Antoinette, and a cast of unsavory characters who are determined to destroy them all.

After their harrowing escape from Mississippi, abolitionist Durksen Hurst, his fiancée Antoinette DuVallier, and their friends — a group of undocumented slaves — land in guerrilla-infested Civil War Missouri, the most savage whirlwind of destruction, cruelty, and death in American history.

Trapped in a terrifying cycle of murder and revenge, scarred by Quantrill’s cold-blooded Lawrence massacre and the Union army’s ruthless Order Eleven, Durk and everyone he cares for soon find themselves entangled in a struggle for their very survival.

Honor Among Outcasts takes readers on a pulse-pounding journey of desperate men and women caught up in the merciless forces of hatred and fear that tear worlds apart, and the healing power of friendship to bring them together.

 

Ed Protzel has written five original screenplays for feature film and worked developing film scripts/projects for 20th Century Fox. He has a Master’s in English Literature/Creative Writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a B.A. in English, with a minor in history, from the University of Hawaii.

The Lies That Bind is based on Protzel’s screenplay which was recognized by the Missouri Playwrights Association. It had brief Hollywood exposure; was called “a great script” by 20th Century Fox’s Murray Silverman, Paramount’s Sherry Lansing, and Chelsea Studios producer Stan Zuckerman.

The final novel of the trilogy, Something in Madness,  includes the same major characters as the original but takes place during Reconstruction.
