One Day…

March 5, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

While watching one of my favorite shows (Please Like Me), I heard a great line in response to someone sharing terrible news with a friend: “I’m so sorry, Josh, but one day you’ll wake up and you won’t feel so shit.” I’m somewhat paraphrasing, but those…

Creative Collective: Hollow, A Webcomic

February 26, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

This month’s Creative Collective spot goes to Lilly Higgs: creator of the lush, gorgeous and ingeniously written: Hollow. It’s a webcomic, updated on Mondays and Thursdays, and soon available in print! I have a soft spot for deep mythology in my storie…

Another Light for the Stars

February 19, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I wanted to thank everyone for the outpouring of support here and on Facebook last week, and I wish that I had better news to share regarding my little guy’s health. But I don’t. As we neared the date of Zeus’s surgery/ biopsy, he was struggling to eat…

That Monster, Cancer

February 12, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

In the background of last week’s events–failed tattoos, house-hunting, manuscript finishing–there was what we hoped was a minor emergency going on with my furry assistant, Zeus. He’s nine years old now, and, until recently, the picture of contentment…

A Tale of Two…

February 5, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

It was an eventful week: the search for a new home is going well; my tattoo isn’t really working out (why are people so sketchy?); and–super amazeballs–I’m writing the final scene to Feast of Mercy. That last point is a biggie for me. I’m a chronic n…

Solidarity and Sisterhood

January 22, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

The US has officially enthroned a new leader, and what a tumultuous path to inauguration that’s been. The world’s a bit crazy at the moment. Peoples’ passions and experiences with and without marginalization have driven them to either side of a divided…

(Note: There are a ton of clickable links in this piece, which all open in separate windows–click to your heart’s content!) When I was lost in my flu-delirium over Christmas, something wonderful happened: Feast of Fates was selected by the ladies over…

New Year, New Promises

January 8, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Welcome to 2017. I spent Christmas and New Years Eve in bed with the flu, which gave me lots of time to consider my outlook for the year. Slightly before then, I’d already decided that I was going to give Oprah style positivity a chance. You know: envi…

Fellow readers, artists and friends, Happy New Year. I hope that the next twelve months are auspicious and productive for you. I hope that your dreams come true–even if they manifest in ways you might not have planned. Moving into 2017, I’d like to su…
