CTJ Designs Jennifer Luitwieler’s “Seven Days in May” Book Cover

In February, I designed the cover of Jennifer Luitwieler’s new book, a novel titled Seven Days in May. Unfortunately, I did not draw the marvelous map of Tulsa that adorns the cover. That’s an authentic work from 1918. My biased review of the book is up at Amazon here. Buy the book, and follow Jennifer...
Book Review: Katherine Willis Pershey's "Any Day a Beautiful Change"

Book Review: Katherine Willis Pershey’s “Any Day a Beautiful Change”

In light of...

Guest Post by Jennifer Luitwieler: “Emotional Constipation’s Uglier Cousin”

One of the reasons I adore Chad Thomas Johnston and think of him as a brother from another mother is his affinity for stories with a fecal undertone. I was introduced to Chad’s penchant for potty humor through his post on a snow toilet he built with his sister in their yard one winter. They...

An Accidental Lesson in Quantum Mechanics: Tripping Over the Twitterverse

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...
