Wake Up

June 24, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I’ve been so busy with the manuscript(s) lately that I haven’t been commenting on the news. A lot has happened: a divisive election here in Ontario, the escalated fracturing of culture in the US, the destruction of decades of advancement in globalizati…

Busy Bee

June 17, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Hello my dears. Not much time to chat today as we’re moving. However, I haven’t missed a Sunday blog in years and I don’t intend to break that tradition. So, in no order of importance: Happy Father’s Day to you dads out there, the manuscript’s final dr…

The Pale Lady

June 10, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Death is one of the many themes explored in Feasts: our race against the clock, our fight to find meaning in loss, our courage to move on. In Feast of Darkness, Part I, we see the climax of the battle against Death herself, come to Geadhain to teach hu…

Time to Say Goodbye

June 3, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

It’s official: the house has been sold and the keys to our home for the last nine years pass into the excited hands of their new occupants on July 12th. Worry not, the draft is 100 pages from complete so that shouldn’t interfere with the timetable for…

Zioch, City of Gold

May 27, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

During my drafting this week, I came across this little gem of an excerpt that I wanted to share with you. Don’t worry about me spoiling the feast before it arrives, either, FoD 1/2 are each larger than Chaos—so book off a good week to read! Anyway, wh…

Secondary Tidings

May 20, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I’m sure everyone is still abuzz about the Royal Wedding, and I expect that to dominate news-cycles for many, many days to come (it was really lovely!). I won’t keep you long today. Still, after last week’s teaser excerpt, I had four separate inquiries…

For the Moms

May 13, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Over 60% of my readership is female. One of my first editorial critiques (pre publication) adored the story, but questioned its audience, and suggested that I retool the story so that Caenith was the hero and focal point and Morigan was the secondary h…

Inspiration

May 6, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

As it goes with moody personalities, this week I fell into a bit of a lowpoint. My partner and I are in a holding pattern of sorts: waiting for events to move—my manuscript (from the editor), another project I’m working on, some professional changes fo…

My Heart Screams and Soars

April 29, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

For the people of Toronto and their loss and bravery during a domestic terror attack* that rocked our city early this week. On Monday, the city fell under a controlled panic, never crossing into Islamaphobia or hysteria, waiting until facts and foes we…

Our Colonial Privilege

April 22, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

I’m usually good at avoiding Facebook melodrama. I post my personal opinions here, online, in a space curated for myself and for those who want to communicate with me. In that, I can mostly insulate myself from extremist hyperbole and filter in only th…
