Hi. Long holiday season as well as keeping busy plot planning and such. Cover art is STILL a wee bit of a stick in the mud. Otherwise, I’ve been keeping up on the news and I have one question for America:
Have you lost your bloody minds?!?
Honestly! How long are going to sit on your arses while that munchkin brain, weetabix head, butt wipe and general moron drives you towards ecological, financial ruin and war?!? That thing has done more damage in a few short months, that even Hitler and Hirohito couldn’t in 10 years. Mind, the body count is still to come, however, this doesn’t explain or excuse the complacency by an entire populace and governing bodies to not put the reins or at least muzzle the mango Mussolini!
Okay.. off the soap box for the moment. I’m still warming up on the whole bad behaviour by the American male population or the lack of brains used by said gender at any level.
The Good from the writing and artistic world part 2:
I’d like to add that the gems that I mentioned are, but a small handful of those that really keep me excited and hopeful for the future, As much as we love what we do, there are moments when we must choose to live indoors and eat as much as be expressive. Thus, like myself, we are staunchly against copyright thieves and pirates.
We deserve to have a livelihood and be able to thrive without threat of someone stealing our work and starving us out. I know, I’m digressing badly, my apologies. However, I must bring the topic up as it is prevalent in all our every day endeavours.
Chaz is my front runner for cover artist for my Camden’s Follies series. His steampunk work is outstanding to say the least! I lead with this as I find that we cannot rely on the big publishers or medium ones and art houses for original content any more.
They produce 1 book with 50k covers, re – colour pictures and try to tell you they’re new characters… it’s just pathetic after a while.
It’s an insult to those that love reading and to those that would love to read more or and own portable beauty or at least he variety they can proudly pass on to the next generation.
This, the independent published and produced artists, authors and musicians are the the new paradigm and the future. They are the inspiration and the refreshing moments we all need to keep going and get us to be the people in our hearts and not the labels of society.
For now, I’m off and remember…
I am The Pirate Poet
No worries, I’ll have something poetic up soon or a teaser for when the release of either of the book series is coming.. So stay tuned! I will never give up or give in. Never cruel, nor cowardly!
