The time is drawing near to invite you to Endever’s new home base.

We at Endever Publishing Studios have been extremely busy hiring new help, building a website, accepting new authors, producing new books, and even creating apparel!

So far we’ve released two books, one about a sexy, sassy Angel of Death who roams the hallways of a hospital seeking out her next souls to take, and the other is about a girl who falls in love with a boy just a little too late.

Our next book will be released early spring, set in the mysterious and enchanting Cony Island.

Endever Publishing also has plans to begin a podcast and bring you more videos of your favorite authors and books, so keep checking back for more up-to-date information and be sure to follow Endever on Facebook by clicking here.

How to Merge Creativity in a Professional Environment

People often ask me what one book I’ve read the most. Here’s my answer. It’s not a work of fiction.
71azko7m6+L._SL1500_

Creativity, Inc. is a book for businesspeople, managers, supervisors, artists, writers, and creative-types of every kind.

It is written by Ed Catmull, the president and cofounder of one of the most fastest-growing and successful companies on the planet.

If I were to start picking out highlights from this book to share with you, I might as well just copy the whole thing word for word in this post, and I don’t think WordPress would give me that much space to write.

As you journey through this insightful book, you’ll come to realize Catmull has reimagined the way business is run.

This isn’t our grandfather’s suit-and-tie world anymore. This is a world where leaders and organizers need to be open to good ideas coming from anywhere.

If you’re more of the creative persuasion, whether you write or draw or sing and dance, this book is equally for you as well. You will be inspired by the grueling and relentless process of storytelling and how to persevere and hone your craft. If you draw, you’ll learn new ways to gain inspiration and even look at the world a little differently.

And if you’re just a Pixar buff, you’ll find loads and loads of fun facts and information about Pixar you can’t find anywhere else.

Don’t think about it. Just get this book. I honestly don’t care who you are or what you do, it will most definitely pertain to you in some way or another.

An Update on Endever Publishing Studios

Screen Shot 2016-07-03 at 10.58.49 AM

It’s been almost a year since Endever Publishing was born. And what a year it’s been.

We have a full house of authors we’ve signed on to publish their books with us in multiple genres from young readers to teen fiction to speculative fiction to horror/thrillers.

Last year we published our first two books and we’re gearing up to publish our third with a tentative release date of March 30.

I am proud to say that in a year, through all the unexpected twists and turns, we are remaining true to our core values of publishing innovative works by aspiring authors. Our books continue their legacy of featuring a short story by another in-house author, and we are tightening up our methodology of producing books through collaboration.

I’m proud to announce that we will be launching a website, a home-base, in March, which we are working very hard on. Our hope is that it proves to be enlightening, entertaining, and informative for both authors and readers alike.

In case you haven’t heard about us yet, here are the two books we have published:

Both are available on Amazon (links below). A Deathly Compromise is available in both ebook and paperback version. These Great Affects will be available in paperback soon, but it’s ready for those of you who prefer ebooks.

So keep a lookout for more Endever news as we continue to plow forward into a great and exciting new year full of endless potential and possibilities that stretch into forever.

Why Stories Matter

open book

As we grow older we lose interest in stories and prefer cold, hard facts. To a degree facts are necessary.

But it’s when we lose sight of the importance of Story that it becomes an issue.

To lose interest in stories is to lose touch with humanity. Let me explain.

Stories, whether they’re true or not, are used as one of the most powerful tools to extract emotion. And emotion is what drives not only ideas, but movement.

Fishermen are driven to catch larger fish because they’ve heard of others who have caught large fish. They heard a story.

Humanitarians are moved to go across seas to feed and care for orphans because they saw a video of starving kids. They saw a story.

My kids go to sleep because we read them stories.

Stories, since the beginning of time (think papyrus and cave drawings) have aided in informing us, teaching us, moving us, and challenging us. Stories are the gears that churn ideas into movement.

Now, to be clear, not every story is a necessity. If we’re honest, we could have done without Dumb and Dumber, as hilarious as that movie is, but it doesn’t really do much to enhance our lives.

But think about how stories can be helpful. Think of the stories that have helped you in your own life. A few come to mind for me both in movie and book form:

The Bottom of the 33rd by Dan Barry is a literary example of how the right person can take possibly the world’s dullest subject and make it invigorating, exciting, and entertaining. This is one of my all time favorite books.

Cinderella Man is a movie that demonstrates that even in the face of something as harrowing as the Great Depression, we can overcome many things by using our natural-born talents and a butt-load of tenacity.

Toy Story proves that being the first doesn’t mean it has to be experimental. This movie broke new ground and still lives on today as one of the greatest movies ever made (if you’re not counting the sequels).

Did these stories change my life? I wouldn’t say that exactly, but they did help shape the way I think and view myself and the world. Therefore, I persevere, I fight, I explore, and I strive for greatness. Every time.

What are some stories that have shaped you and your life? Share below how you think Story can be an effective tool to better the world we live in.
