New Things Are Coming in 2018

Hello Internet and the world. This is Bryan coming to you from sunny California with a wee bit of an update on all things me, your personal Creative Genius™!

To begin, let me explain a little about why I was all but missing from this blog and social media over the past couple of months. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to finish a grand masterpiece of writing; that was sadly put on the back burner. No, the reason I was MIA for the better part of the last fiscal quarter was because I was focusing on rebuilding my website and figuring out ways to improve my presence on this very platform.

As some of you may know, I am pretty reserved when it comes to putting myself out there, so I’ve always been tentative about social media. I’m going to attempt to subvert that a little this year. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not going to divulge a lot of personal things about myself, tell you where I am at all times of the day, snap pictures of every meal I eat, or go on extreme political tirades. What I am going to do is attempt to deliver more content to a wider audience. Along with my continued movie and book reviews, I’m going to be a little more vocal about my work — reporting on my progress, showing samples, and possibly (when it’s deemed appropriate) giving people a behind the scenes look at the process. I’m also going to attempt to deliver more thoughts on writing, design and the world at large, and be more attentive to others, hopefully showcasing a few more businesses, authors and the like.

But none of this will happen until I officially unveil my new website on January 26! Here’s a quick taste of what’s to come:

The entire site has been redesigned to be be more sleek, easy to navigate and completely responsive!

First look at the home page of Phoenix Moirai’s new website.

I’ve also completely overhauled the portfolio page to give it a much more dynamic feel.

And finally, I will be adding a separate subdomain specifically for weddings.

Once this is complete, I will be working to get both my author site and my film site completed. The author site will go live alongside the publication of my new book.

Speaking of my next latest and greatest, before I stopped writing to concentrate on my website, I was about 65% done with the first draft (which in terms of writing, means I am about 5% done with the book as a whole)! I will begin divulging more info over the next year leading up to the release, but all I can say right now to whet your whistle is that it’s a metafictioanal sci-fi/fantasy which I have tentatively titled, “Threads.” I am hoping for a November release, but we’ll see how the year goes. (Who knows, we may get to see it this summer!!)

That’s it for now. Again, look for more updates here on my blog as well as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Until then, live life as if you won’t see tomorrow.

Busy Busy Busy…

I’m not sure if anyone’s noticed, but I’ve been all but MIA from social media for, oh, a couple of months now. There have been a couple of posts littered here and there throughout Instagram or Twitter, but I’ve been mostly silent on both Facebook and this very blog. (If you follow my movie reviews, you probably noticed a major dry spell between Rings and the recently posted The Circle!)

This absence hasn’t been because I chose to step away from social media. I still check my stats and see what everyone else is up to on a daily basis, and if I feel compelled, comment on posts and what have you. In fact, I schedule posts for all of my social media channels each week. No, the real reason I haven’t been social lately is because of work. What Have I been Up To?

My Goals (and Challenges) for 2017

Now that 2016 is in the rear-view mirror, it’s time to look ahead and see what 2017 may bring. There are a lot of things I wanted to do in 2016 (which include some of my 2016 resolutions) that sadly remained on the bottom of my to-do list from when the idea was born to the end of the year. I’m hoping to rectify that and pull those projects to the top and complete them in the first half of the year… if not sooner. Check out all of my Goals and Accomplishments

New Epic Novel In The Works

I have a new novel in the works, and it’s going to be epic! (I know, I’m boasting. But hey, I’m a writer… I give the truth scope!)

Originally written approximately 10 years ago, the novel flowed from my fingertips like luscious honey, and no matter how hard I tried, I could never find a way to close the floodgates. But what writer would, especially when my characters were taking me on such a wild and adventurous journey — one that I now feel is ready to share with the world. Though a release date has yet to be set (because, you know, it has been sitting on my digital shelf for nearly ten years… I need to blow some ones and zeroes off of it before it’s at its best and brightest), I’ve tentatively scheduled it for sometime in November.

More will be revealed in the coming months. But for now, here’s a short teaser trailer to whet your appetite. View Teaser Trailer

Recognizing My Inspiration

This is a bit late, I know, but I only recently received the picture!

As I’ve mentioned on several accounts, my young adult novel, In the Light of the Eclipse, was inspired by five individuals who challenged me to write a novel. I usually see them every Christmas, so I was going to give them all a signed copy of my book in 2013, however, due to some family issues, our normal Christmas Eve party was canceled and I was unable to see them all. (My niece and nephew did get theirs, though). So this past Christmas, I was delighted to be able to finally give the other three young ladies their copies, and they were just as excited to start reading.

3/5 of the inspiration for my young adult novel, In the Light of the Eclipse.
