And the Beat Goes on

July 23, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I’ve been in a bit of a creative lull. I’ve been twiddling my thumbs without my manuscript since the middle of June. My publicity campaign has been getting ramped up over the last month, so there hasn’t been much on that front either. At least Jupiter-…

Look, Ma!

July 16, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I made a pooter! Wait, that sounds as if I’m celebrating the crapping of my pants. I’m actually celebrating the rage-driven-industriousness that struck me when my iPad crapped (intentional word usage this time) the bed a week or so ago. Emails were los…

Creative Collective: Julie Frayn

July 2, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Today’s Creative Collective feature is for a very special artist: the homegrown, Canadian queen of saucy-literature-that-parents-might-slap-you-for-reading (not good parents–overprotective ones!): Julie Frayn. I feel she’s the perfect writer to featur…

Wikis, Internal Racism, People Losing their Damn Minds

June 18, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

The best critiques come from the heart, and that’s why I so respected the discussion that was happening over at Pages and Pause Screen (iTunes podcast, here) about the 3rd book in the series. The best commentary opens discussion and makes us think abou…

Welcome…

May 28, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

…to the new site! First and foremost, if you’ve somehow missed my repeated media-blasting of it, feast your eyes on the animated trailer put together by the wizard (Joshua) at Mjolnir Studios and the super talented Leo Black. I’ll be featuring each o…

Creative Collective: J.H. Moncrieff

May 20, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I’d like to thank the folks at JKS Communications for introducing J.H. and I; a Creative Collective opportunity that wouldn’t otherwise have happened. Horror has always been a second genre and calling of mine, and it’s that darkness (and fear and wonde…

How Do They (Moms) Do It?

May 14, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Short n’ sweet today: I’m taking a short break from drafting the last few pages of the manuscript to write this piece. But I wouldn’t have come this far in my career or life without my partner or my mom. This is a day for moms, though, not spouses, and…

Ana Santos Design

Creative Collective: Nya Designs

April 30, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Behind every visionary is a strong, silent partner, right? Well, the same is true for artists and creatives, and their partners are many. Art, as we know it in this age, isn’t just about creating something and then setting it free into the world. With…

Piranha Diving

March 19, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

What a week: the first in a while where I’ve considered piranha diving to be a more rewarding career. I try to put on a happy face, since our mindset influences our wellbeing and abundance. You know: think positive, positive things will happen in our l…

Death and Taxes

March 12, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Death and taxes: two circumstances from which we never escape. The former event remains–I hope–quite a way off, the latter I contribute toward every year. However, that didn’t stop the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) from sending me a lovely notice last…
