The Fog of Memory

Sometimes places and people change dramatically with the distance of time...even if they don't change at all.

Perceptions of your reality all share a piece of common ground. They are your perceptions. Based on your environment, your memories, your situation. Everything we see throgh our eyes is subject to interpretation by our own brain. The curse of the perfection-seeking artist is that he can not control the perceptions of his audience. Therefore, he can never perfectly portray any thing...not a color, not a thought, not a sound.

The same holds true for the times we share in this world. You have pleasant memories of a place for many reasons, and not all of them have anything to do with the place.

Cover Proof

We got a proof of our cover for Artistically Inclined and I really like it. No offense to my Phaze publishers/editors, but I really like the actual photo better then the computer generated illustration.

As soon as we have a release date and a final version I will let you know, announcing it both here and at my Yahoo Group.

I will be on an author chat at Phaze.com at 9 pm eastern, a little over an hour from now. If you read this and have the chance, come on over and say "Hi!". I need to start announcing these chats a couple days before hand over the mailing list...instead of an hour and a quarter before it starts.
