The first draft of the book was After bringing Caroline Diezyn on as my co-writer for the book, we spent six months reworking the proposal, workshopping titles, and trying to mold a book we could sell from the book I had written. The final title is Shitshow to Afterglow , which is more playful than previous titles… which I appreciate. Even though the book is about what was without a doubt the most excruciating, miserable time of my life, the biggest takeaway for me was that if you can really lean into your own grief and commit to working with it, remarkable things can happen.
I'm not saying you gloss over the grief, put on a happy face, find the silver lining! My experience after going through a crisis was that life is never what it was before. This is not a book of sunshiney happy platitudes and "getting over it"… it's a book about rolling up your sleeves and staying with your sorrows even when it feels like your skin is burning off, so that you can make new choices and rebuild your life in ways that get you somewhere.
It's about grieving forward. Current status : Caroline and I have all the chapters mapped out, and they're spending the next four months integrating my existing writing with their additional work to produce the completed first draft manuscript. The goal is to have the book on shelves Spring of This project has been my playground. At a glance, it's a 10k erotic novelette that I wrote and am self-publishing as a small luxe hardback, paired in a gorgeous package with jewelry I designed with a Seattle artisan.
When you zoom out, it's a massive experiment in tangibility, valuation, market exploration, and product development. I'm not there yet, though. First I have to see how this first prototype print run does. It's super limited edition, books 50 sold with necklaces, 50 sold with bracelets. I need to just see how that goes before I let myself look any farther ahead.
I've been doing these since , and the combo of the gorgeous dark space that test tube chandelier! Aww, the websites that make it all worth it! These two superheroes have worked with me for many many years, and have the web systems down to a degree that I never did. With them around, things run smoothly — and when they don't, I step in to change the oil, bang a dent out of the chassis, or wrangle Kellbot our longtime webdev to tune up the engine.
Sometimes I play bad cop and hunt down unpaid invoices with a bedazzled crowbar in hand, but that's pretty rare because Offbeat Bride sponsors are fucking awesome humans, some of whom have been with the site for a decade! I'm continuing to try to write a few posts a month on offbeathome. We might kick up the flare on offbeatbride. It's a perfect blend of Jamal's smooth vocals and Hakeem's biting verses. Estelle's small but memorable cameo in this late-season episode resulted in the show's most beautiful and inspiring duet.
It's doesn't get better than the entire Lyon family on the same track! There's only one song that could top it But as Empire heads into its home stretch with only three episodes left after this week's episode which airs tonight, Wednesday, March 4, at 9 PM EST , it has turned out to be the exact opposite.
Empire is a bonafide television smash, with ratings growing each week. Meanwhile, the music has been hit or miss, with no genuine hit records coming from any of the episodes thus far. I would also like to know what the instrumental song is that was playing as Jamal and Kai got engaged and was repeated when Cookie left Lucious. Is it available anywhere? What Is Love. Love Me Still. How is the next episode looks like.
