The Business of Art

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...

Surrendering Control

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...

An Evening With Katharine Hepburn

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...

Lost and Found

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...
