The Lunar Neutrality Declaration of 2110

The adventures of BC – the Vatican Assassin – continue on Glow-in-the-Dark Radio! On this episode you'll hear chapter four of Vatican Ambassador – book two of the Vatican Assassin Trilogy – as BC witnesses the rise of his enemy Daniel McEntyre as Governor of Lunar Prime. McEntyre's first major act is the new Lunar Neutrality Declaration. BC knows McEntyre is really a Universal Islamic Nation sympathizer – why should he believe the man will keep the Moon neutral in the war between the UIN and the Universal Trade Zone?

You Should Listen To John Fullbright Make Music

One of the reasons I love being the Music Director at The Point is that I still, even after all these years of listening to music, STILL come across new stuff, fresh new releases that blow me away. Right now, it's the music made by this young guy out of Oklahoma, John Fullbright. He writes some great songs, and his delivery is just plain real.
The music is rooted in folk, some label it "Americana", but like the best music it confounds any label immediately after it's applied. I could compare John Fullbright to a lot of people to try to give you some reference points, but I feel like that does him a disservice - as soon as you think, "Oh, he's like (fill in the blank)," suddenly, he's not.
Sometimes, I get new releases a little early. A couple weeks ago, I put this new album From the Ground Up on in my car, driving around, driving to work, driving home - the CD player conveniently starts over with #1 - and I've played the first track from the album "Gawd Above" on the air a couple of times. Love the album and wanted to be sure to spread the word when it came out, and it did yesterday. The link in the picture below takes you to the album's Amazon page, where you can hear samples of the songs. Music doesn't hit me good and strong this often, so when it does, I've gotta share!

Brand-New reading of VATICAN AMBASSADOR Chapter Two!

An all new reading of Chapter 2 of Vatican Ambassador – part two of The Vatican Assassin Trilogy – on today's podcast! After war and rebuilding comes the somewhat slimier business of... politics. Is BC a liability? He just may be, as Marc Edwards runs for reelection as Governor of Lunar Prime. It doesn't help that Edward's opponent is BC's enemy, Universal Islamic Nation sympathizer Daniel McEntyre – the man whose wife BC assassinated. Listen to this episode to find out who wins – it's election time on Glow-in-the-Dark Radio.

Listen in to find out how to get yourself a free new eBook – my Souverain: The Kid is out now from Earthbound Comics! And I'll share some more thoughts about the contradictions of creativity and creative despair... fun! Been a rough week. I'll tell you about it.

All fresh from the ground up today on an all-new podcast episode!
