The Consequences of Talking

July 15, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Being in the public eye—to however large or small a degree—carries with it consequence. What you say has reach, and that reach can take you to exciting or terrible places. A renowned game writer was summarily fired this week for engaging in a Twitter s…

Idle Hands

July 8, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

During my ‘downtime’ between novels, I usually recuperate my mental resources and focus on other activities for a while: exercise, meditation, reading, gaming (which I find relaxing—escapism into someone else’s world for a change!). I don’t brainstorm…

Happy Canada Day—and Other Tidings

July 1, 2018, by Christian A. Brown

Happy Canada day, to those of you celebrating. I won’t keep you from your long weekend festivities beyond a few announcements. Most important of which: Feast of Darkness, Part I will be released on September 25th, 2018. I wanted to release it on my bir…

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…
