Mother’s Pride

June 25, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Pythius: two-spirited shaman of the Doomchasers, and the perfect icon for today’s Pride Post! *** Mother’s Pride Nature shines, She beams She adores Herself in light Yet She knows the craven kiss of darkest night Embracing with truth Her right, Her glo…

Wikis, Internal Racism, People Losing their Damn Minds

June 18, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

The best critiques come from the heart, and that’s why I so respected the discussion that was happening over at Pages and Pause Screen (iTunes podcast, here) about the 3rd book in the series. The best commentary opens discussion and makes us think abou…

Highs and Lows

June 11, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Bringing Jupiter home was definitely a high point of last week. Still, our happiness at his arrival was overshadowed–made a footnote–by the horrible events that happened in London. With that pain fading, but not forgotten, we believed Jupiter would b…

A Bundle of Joy (and Sorrow)

June 4, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

This is unscheduled and off the cuff, and not what I’d planned to discuss (see the original blog below). I woke up this morning and read the news; then caught up on the “I’m safe” tags from my cousin and other friends and family in the UK. While the pa…

Welcome…

May 28, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

…to the new site! First and foremost, if you’ve somehow missed my repeated media-blasting of it, feast your eyes on the animated trailer put together by the wizard (Joshua) at Mjolnir Studios and the super talented Leo Black. I’ll be featuring each o…

Creative Collective: J.H. Moncrieff

May 20, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I’d like to thank the folks at JKS Communications for introducing J.H. and I; a Creative Collective opportunity that wouldn’t otherwise have happened. Horror has always been a second genre and calling of mine, and it’s that darkness (and fear and wonde…

How Do They (Moms) Do It?

May 14, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Short n’ sweet today: I’m taking a short break from drafting the last few pages of the manuscript to write this piece. But I wouldn’t have come this far in my career or life without my partner or my mom. This is a day for moms, though, not spouses, and…

Gratitude

Too Much Love

May 7, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I mean, there’s always things in life to feel crappy about, and most people–myself included–tend to focus on those elements above all else. Pleasure (happiness, in the non-Pavlovian sense) is a homeostatic state: we of the free and postmodern world e…

Ana Santos Design

Creative Collective: Nya Designs

April 30, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Behind every visionary is a strong, silent partner, right? Well, the same is true for artists and creatives, and their partners are many. Art, as we know it in this age, isn’t just about creating something and then setting it free into the world. With…

Welcome to the Family

April 23, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

We never thought that we would love another animal so soon, yet here we are. In four to six weeks we’ll have a beautiful new fur baby in our home. Meet Jupiter.     Even his name is a bit of a pricking-thorn to us, since it’s the Roman versio…
