Swept Up by the Sea

One of the interesting changes between our special collector’s editions of Dragon’s Bard and those of the mass-market editions has been not only in the content of the books but in the marketing approach itself. Originally the second book in our series was titled ‘Blackshore’ and was a sea-going romantic pirate tale. The publishers who […] Continue reading →

Oscilations, Politics & Story

On Facebook the other day, I clicked on ‘like’ Mitt Romney. One of my friends on Facebook responded to my like with “Are u frickin kidding me? Romney?? REALLY???” Well, yes … really. Now I want to be clear. The fact that Lindsay Lohan has endorsed Mitt Romney for President in no way informed my […] Continue reading →
