ArtPrize

Greetings everyone. I want to show you some art today. This time it has absolutely nothing to do with MY art, but other peoples art. I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Grand Rapids Michigan and discover an event they hold once a year called Artprize.

Here is what the official website for Artprize has to say:
"ArtPrize is a radically open, independently organized international art competition with an unprecedented $200,000 top prize decided entirely by public vote.
For 19 days, three square miles of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, become an open playing field where anyone can find a voice in the conversation about what is art and why it matters. Art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown, and it's all free and open to the public.
It's unorthodox, highly disruptive, and undeniably intriguing to the art world and the public alike"

I didn't have time to see it all, but I am going to show you a little of what I did see. I went out of my way to find the artists so that I could get their picture with their work. a lot of this is going to be small pictures on here, but just click them to see the full sized images. Here we go....

This was one of my favorites,
This is the artist, Laurie Roberts

Now where am I?

Hello all. This is going to be a rather short post this week, I am out of town and am writing this way ahead of time. I am going to do two things with this post this week.

First: I wanted to show you an author interview I did this past week on a friends blog. 

Second: I want to give you a complete list of where you can find my books. I did this once before, but I have had more books come out and I have opened up the venues by which you can purchase them. Click on the name of the site beside the book cover, that is the link. 


























































I know that not everyone has an ereader and that not all of my books are in physical print. Do not worry, you are not going to be left in the dark. Kindle, Nook, Kobo and many others have ereader apps that work with Apple and Android technology. So, if you have a smartphone, tablet, or just about anything that can handle app technology, you can get an ereader app. Best of all, they're FREE.
