E.L. James and The Twitter Lynch Mob That Descended Upon Her

E.L. James and The Twitter Lynch Mob That Descended Upon Her

Not so long ago, a literary phenomenon took place. Perhaps it was one that many writers and would be writers couldn’t understand but it was a phenomenon nevertheless. A woman wrote some “Fan Fiction”, presumably for her own amusement, and published it on her blog. It was so popular that someone — or perhaps many […]

An Adventure In Literature: What I Learned Over 20 Years Of Traveling The Path Of Indie Lit

It’s been nearly 20 years since the release of my first official book – a poetry chapbook called Standing On Lorimer Street Awaiting Crucifixion (Alpha Beat Press). That was 1996. Was a very different world then. There was no such thing as social media: no Facebook, no Twitter, no YouTube, Instagram, or any of the […]

Bohemia After Dark: Artist Piera Gemelli

Bohemia After Dark: Artist Piera Gemelli

I’ve always said that the best thing about social media was its ability to open the world up to amazing, talented artists from across the globe in a way that would have been impossible twenty-five years ago. Then, you had to either have already been a well established artist or at the very least have […]

“The Dark Cave Between My Ribs” by Loren Kleinman plus An Interview With The Author

Poetry – for me – has always been a very different beast from fiction. With fiction, particularly novels, you have a lot of space to breathe, a lot of room to meander a little if you want to, indulge, stretch. Poetry is a more concise art, where one could say in just a few lines […]

“Hurricane: A Collection of Poems” by Dean Walker plus An Interview With The Author

It’s been a long while since I’ve read any poetry so it was with great interest (and pleasure) that I happened to read poet/activist Dean Walker’s debut poetry collection Hurricane: A Collection of Poems. According to the author, these poems were written over the course of dealing with his divorce so many of the poems […]

“Leaving London” by Garry Crystal plus An Interview With The Author

“Leaving London” by Garry Crystal plus An Interview With The Author

One of the ironies about living in a large city is the fact that one can often feel very lonely even though one is surrounded by millions of people. In any major city around the world, whether it be New York, Paris or Berlin, one is thrust into the beehive of human activity, with everyone […]

Letter To My Seven Year Old Self

Letter To My Seven Year Old Self

I see you there, sitting cross legged on the floor next to your little chestnut colored bookcase (believe it or not, you still have it), that all too familiar bright orange Young Student’s Encyclopedia open on your lap – you’re reading the Year in Review 1972 edition. Of course, you’re in 1973 right now and […]
