Twinja Book Reviews Favorite's Month is back!

It's that time again!

July Martial Artist Spotlight: Jing Bai

It's that time again, where we pop off the end of every month with a martial artist that's made an impact. It's been a great year of highlights, especially because 2015 was the Year of The Women, and we've chosen only to highlight women who've brought something to martial arts, combat fighting, stunts or martial arts movies.

It's usually a happy time to get better for us to get better acquainted with those we may have lost, who deserve to have some light shone on them, even after their time on Earth has passed.

Our next Martial Artist Spotlight met an untimely end when she was murdered in 2012.

Her future was bright, but it doesn't mean her legacy died then, it just means we have to try much harder to make sure her memory live on =)

Our July Martial Artist Spotlight is:

The Birth of GL Tomas, The Mark of Noba Cover Reveal, and Writing Books You Want To See-Thoughts on Self Publishing

Yea, we know, we know. It's been like 2 1/2 years since we talked about that so called book...what's it called? 

Oh yeah, "The Mark of Noba?" Yea, that's it.

It's never been a secret that we planned to self publish. It's not because we're lazy, or have been rejected by publishers, or for any other reason except that it's by choice.

To be honest, it was our 1st choice.

Im sure it's a little tired, but Toni Morrison's phrase "If there is a book that you want to read, but hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it" holds true for many authors seeking to see images that reflect them, but aren't seeing them at the rate they'd like.

Two and a half years is a long time to talk about a book but not release it. You constantly get probed with the questions and judgment about why it's taking sooooooooo long, but if you're not happy with your craft as it is, there shouldn't be in a rush to be a part of the published authors club =)

Being published doesn't make you any less of a writer, so you should always take the time that's right for you to reveal your work to the world!

But with that being said, "The Mark of Noba" is finally being published!
