The Martian

The Martian coming to movie theaters October 2, 2015… Will you be going to see it?

I cannot imagine being alone on a remote planet without the hope of anyone coming to my rescue, believing that no one knows I’m alive.

I communicate signals hoping, praying that there’s a chance someone will hear the transmission and travel 140 million miles risking their lives to rescue me.

The price tag for such an expense must cost millions.

But while you’re trying to remain sane from boredom, you think of ways to survive. How? Especially when you have limited resources. A body can only live three days without water and last forty days without food.

In the book The Martian by Andy Weir, he thinks of cleaver ways to survive…. No spoilers here. Read the book, it’s sensational.


When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, members of NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring him home, while his crew mates hatch their own plan for a daring rescue mission.

If you enjoy science-fiction, this movie is sure to ‘Rock Your World’... I'm looking forward to watching the movie next weekend.

I've made a few slight changes to my blog this morning. Please feel free and check out the changes.  I'll tell you one of those changes that I am pleased to announce; I have added a language translator to my blog so anyone that cannot read English will be able to read the blog post and the first chapters in their chosen language. 

I played around with a few languages, Italian and French and was thrilled with the results. Check it out, and the other features that were added. 

I appreciate your comments, feedback and suggestions. I'd love to hear from each of you, so don't hesitate in leaving a message. 

Happy reading,
T.M. Waltman


As of now, I am writing 'Rebirth' book two in The Black Rose Trilogy. Currently, I am writing Chapter 5. I am planing to finish book two by  October or November and then I will start writing the final book afterwards, completing the trilogy. 
From time to time as time permits, I'll be writing between two other novels that I have been working on as well. Which of course depends on how the muse directs. 
I'll post updates with the progress from all novels as they become available. And I'll create new tabs on each of the first chapters of each novel for your reading pleasure.
Please feel free to post comments, questions and opinions here, I'd love to hear from each of you. 
Keep reading,  T.M. Waltman


For several weeks,  I've been reading through the manuscript making slight changes. As an author we want to put our best work out there. That said, I'll be announcing the release date of Allured by the first of April,  2017.
