As a person who enjoys the art of literature, it’s always nice to learn about another writer, especially when they are into visual arts too.
This is the case for Mike Gagnon. And for several weeks so far, his publication “Paper Walls: ” has been a top seller on Amazon!
I suggest anyone with any will to work in the comic book industry invest the time to read it.
To say Dan Brook enjoys art would be understating things to an extreme degree. While he works primarily as a political science professor in California, he also has engaged in a series of projects doing everything from photography to writing literature.
One of his really unique writings is a publication entitled “Daydreaming in Kyoto” which is mentioned on his Smashwords page as showing “this magical city through evocative and provocative haiku and photographs.”
Check it out when you have a chance.
It may be hard to fathom, but with all the bookstores and web-based retail outlets like Amazon, there are times that we might find it hard to get our hands on a certain special book we want or need for some reason.
This is where a new site I came up with comes into the picture. It’s called simply Books Near Me.
The concept is simple, as stated on the site’s home page:
Have you ever found yourself looking for a specific book but either can’t locate it, don’t want to wait for shipping or pay the fees for it, or need it right away? This site is here to assist.
The concept behind it is to make it easier to get print books when the big box stores and Internet retailers just won’t cut it.
For example, Amazon and Barnes and Noble might not have the book you need because it is no longer in print. Or if they do, it might take a number of days to get it or cost a bunch to have it sent by mail.
This site is designed to help you find what you need locally.
Anybody who has even a casual knowledge of music history knows about the one and only Johnny Cash. He was known for his deep words and often melancholic tone. But until recently, few realized that we also wrote poetic works.
In a book called “Johnny Cash: Forever Words,” his son collected 41 pieces that he had skillfully crafted and had them published for music and literary buffs. I got my copy a few weeks back but have not yet gotten much of a change to delve in.
If this is something you might like, check it out today.
It is available at retailers such as Amazon or can be ordered at your local bookseller.
A lot of my recent book writing ventures focus on the electronic format and have included how-to style guides on artistic concepts. But I am excited to have just competed a book for display purposes with art pieces called “Optical Artistry.” Check out some sample pages I have added to this post and buying option on my author site.

In the car park.
The truth stark
With the leaves
Who do not deceive.
Yet to grieve
Over lost hope
Helps no one cope.
As the rain
On the window pane
Of a chain Café
Where I picked up the bill to pay.
No doubt, all this will seem far away.
