The End of Elegance (In Writing)

August 3, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Happy Sunday, everyone! Today, I wanted to talk about some of the trends that I’ve noticed in modern writing. Recently, I read a book–well, part of one, I couldn’t finish it–where the entire narrative was told in an “active” voice. (For those of you…

A Poem

July 30, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Without going into details that aren’t mine to share, a friend of a friend had something quite terrible happen to them. I only found out about this incident last night. Afterwards, I had the urge to write something. My heart and thoughts are with those…

Welcome, Wanderers!

July 29, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Hello, I’m rather speechless, and yet there is so much that I should say. So many people to whom I owe thanks. In the interest of brevity, I’ll save most of my floridness for the launch party, and say, for now: “Thank you to my many editors, artists, s…

Achieving Perfection…

Wow, what a year it has been. I apologize for the lack of updates, but as you can see, I have been preparing for the launch of Feast of Fates. As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, and I want that first impressio…

Sunday, May 26, 2013 Greetings friends, family and internet acquaintances not yet met. I’m just coming out of my rabbit hole for a few breaths of air. This is a rather exciting time for me, as I’m about three weeks from the completion of my manuscript…

May 24, 2013, by Christian A. Brown

Sunday, March 24, 2013 Well, what a difference two months makes. And Lord how quickly time flies. When you lose yourself, really lose yourself in something, its a beautiful feeling. I’m just coming up for air now and on my 2nd draft of my 2nd book. I w…

A Year

January 28, 2013, by Christian A. Brown

Monday, January 28, 2013 Here we are. Come tomorrow, a year has come and gone since her death. My apologies for not being very active lately. I wrapped up my second draft on January 3rd. It was exhaustive and exhilarating and I immediately shut down af…
