CTJ PRESS: News That's Fit to Print for a Man Who's Fit to Be Tied

CTJ PRESS: News That’s Fit to Print for a Man Who’s Fit to Be Tied

  Joshua Madden (@maddenjoshua), Arts & Entertainment Editor of The Baylor Lariat, picked my brain and found 27 cents in lost change and a stale Funyun from 1997 in the folds of my gray matter. The resulting feature is the first and only solo interview I have granted for any publication, and hopefully not the last. It was...

International DJG Day Coverage: Enough Content to Capsize the Continent

I hereby declare today to be International DJG (Danny J. Gibson) Day. If you are concerned that this day might somehow overshadow some other holiday no one celebrates, you are free to file a complaint with your Congressman. Go ahead, really.

CTJ Lands Publication in "FrontMatter" With Article on eBooks & Scholarly Publishing

CTJ Lands Publication in “FrontMatter” With Article on eBooks & Scholarly Publishing

I wrote an article for Allen Press‘ publication FrontMatter, and it appeared in the newly published volume 16 issue yesterday. It is available for reading here. The article is titled “eManifest Destiny: Implications of the eBook Frontier for Scholarly Publishing.” Most shocking of all about this piece is the fact that the editors let me...

An Accidental Lesson in Quantum Mechanics: Tripping Over the Twitterverse

While parallel universes belong to the realm of quantum mechanics, I happened to stumble upon one myself this year without any scientific know-how whatsoever: The Twitterverse. Yes, I have discovered the miracle of Twitter. I, who referred to Twitter as the utmost example of Western cultural decline as recent as August of 2010, have become...

Work-in-Progress #2: Young Adult Sci-Fi Book with Amanda Lynch

I designed the blog header below for Virginia’s own Amanda Lynch yesterday. And yes, her baby really did eat foil. Read Amanda’s blog entry about this incident here. I met Amanda on Twitter awhile back and, after becoming familiar with her writing style, I asked her to collaborate with me on my next book project,...
Introducing Dakno Gurpstan & His Art for My Book, "The Stained-Glass Kaleidoscope"

Introducing Dakno Gurpstan & His Art for My Book, “The Stained-Glass Kaleidoscope”

It is difficult to effectively photograph a piece of art that is eight-feet wide. But Dakno Gurpson’s (Left) art for my book, The Stained-Glass Kaleidoscope, is eye-popping enough (at least in my estimate) that, until we get a professional to shoot this artistic albatross, the picture below will suffice. I told Dakno I wanted the art...
