Cat French Get’s Jack’d

It’s that time again kitties and catses — time for another jack’ing of another innocent victim. This time around it’s fellow steampunk writer (I can say that now because, well, I can.. so there, shut it!). So let’s all grab a nice bowl of schmilk and a can of tuna and curl up in the […]

In respect and defense of indie artists

Imogen Heap, Mazzy Star, Jackson Pollack, Jack Kerouac, Arthur Miller, Samuel Barber, Damien Rice, Death Cab for Cutie… any of these sound familiar? They should.

New Years Resolutions: Jack Style

By the time you read this, the Eternal Clock will have ticked one more stop toward the final end. That’s right, it’s 213 now and time for the tried and true “resolutions”.

Make the most out of your convention

Passions

Ask anyone who knows me to describe what sets me apart and I’m fairly certain the answer will be passion. I’m not talking about the passion one finds tucked within the underpants of erotica or romance novels (though I have that passion as well). The passion I refer to is that passion as defined by […]
