Welcome, Wanderers!

By Christian A. Brown | July 29, 2014 | 0

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, supporters, readers, friends, and spouse. I never…

Achieving Perfection…

By Christian A. Brown | July 20, 2014 | 0

Is of course, impossible. However, as a naturally obsessive individual, I seek to achieve a level of polish and presentation to my work that no matter how fine-tuned, will never really please. I am not going to debate whether or not that is a healthy trait; it has served me well, despite its drawbacks. Now…

The Business of Art

By Christian A. Brown | July 15, 2014 | 0

Recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time and energy figuring out the marketing for FoF (Feast of Fates). Promotion is one of those pursuits that can really go on forever–financially and otherwise–if you don’t set a limit for it. Still, promotion and marketing are without a doubt, essential, to a well-received product.  As artists, we…

Surrendering Control

By Christian A. Brown | July 6, 2014 | 4

Now bear with me, as this will be a bit of a ramble. I’m not even sure if it will all come together into something cohesive–but that’s the fun and mystery in writing something! As you may, or may not know, I am a self-professed technophile. I like gadgets and shiny things; more physical inventions,…

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 impression to be a big…

An Experiment

By Christian A. Brown | May 26, 2013 | 0

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 (final draft, I hope). One day when it is out…

An Update and Why Video Games Are Cool

By Christian A. Brown | May 24, 2013 | 0

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 won’t say much more other than its well…

A Year

By Christian A. Brown | January 28, 2013 | 0

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 afterwards. You see, I wrote a four hundred and fiftyish…

Nose to the Grindstone…

By Christian A. Brown | November 28, 2012 | 0

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 So… Kind of dropped off the face of the Earth. Well, not so much disappeared as met with my editor, started an entirely new draft and have been pumping out pages like Dean Koontz on a crack-binge, though with arguably better quality – sorry Dean! 🙂 I kid, I kid. Anyone…

Words to Remember

By Christian A. Brown | October 16, 2012 | 0

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 If only we arrange our life according to that principle that counsels us that we must always hold difficult, then that which now seems to us the most alien will become what we most trust and find most faithful – Rilke I’m not even going to try and top such profound…

An Evening With Katharine Hepburn

By Christian A. Brown | October 3, 2012 | 0

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 While having a delightful conversation with my sister today, somehow the gloriously incorrigible Miss Hepburn tumbled into the chat. Now there is a woman of brazen ideas and staunch liberties (let’s ignore the rather ignoble 26 year affair with actor Spencer Tracy for purposes of creative entertainment and just pretend she…

Lost and Found

By Christian A. Brown | October 1, 2012 | 0

Monday, October 1, 2012 Motivation. Impetus. I suppose that’s what we can call it; the inevitable rallying against one’s inner negativity to finally move. Surely, some might think that only nine months after the death of the most beloved person – my mother Cynthia Brown – could be too soon to do just that. However,…
