    This Week In Digital Media | Josephine Angelini

    in Podcasting

    On the Wednesday May 2nd, 2012 broadcast our special guest is writer and published author Josephine Angelini. For more information, click here.
    Josephine is the creative force behind the popular teen trilogy series starting with Starcrossed and the recently released Dreamless 'YA' (young adult) novels. 
    In the 'about me' section, Josephine reveals:
    'I was supposed to be a boy.   At least, my mother was convinced I was going to be a boy when she was pregnant with me. She claimed that I "carried" like a boy, but since I'm the youngest of eight, and I have six sisters and only one beloved brother, it is reasonable to assume that my mother was simply suffering from a massive case of wishful thinking. Whatever the reasons, my parents were so convinced I was going to be a boy they had even decided on a boy name for me—Joseph.   But I'm a girl.'   To read the rest of the story, click here.   Join us!

    This in Digital Media with Paul Pate aka Detective Perez

    in Podcasting

    On the Wednesday, January 25th, 2012 broadcast, our special guest is published author, illustrator and all around good guy Paul Pate from Michigan.
    Paul is the creator and author of Detective Perez, which according to one review, is 'a sometimes one drawback of the graphic novel genre is that the plot has to be simplified a bit, due to constraints of size. Not true here in this debut graphic novel by Paul Pate. In fact the plot twists can get a bit dizzying. Grab a copy and hang on!'

    'It reminds me a bit of Sin City. Here, one honest cop takes on corrupt cops, gangsters, rogue FBI agents and maybe even vampires. Or at least they seem to be vampires. Oh yes, and of course there's the obligatory visit to a strip club.'

    'Detective Perez is a well done, fully three dimensional believable character. Joining him is a truly original and fun vampire killer named- of all things- "Bubba". I liked Bubba and I hope we see more of him.'

    'The art- also by Paul Pate- is a simple monochrome drawing. But the starkness and lack of color actually adds here, rather than detracts.'

    'Fun, lots of action and a real page turner.'

    Urban Grandstand Relaunches

    Cleveland, OH, October 09, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Following a near two year hiatus, Cleveland-based online magazine Urban Grandstand has re-launched.

    Operated most times throughout the past decade as a one-man show, the site shut down indefinitely in 2010 for various reasons. The company’s publisher, James Johnson, speaks candidly about the short hiatus....

    "Urban Grandstand has been my baby; so to speak, for more than a decade. It actually began as Urban Connectionz in 2002, and there have been so many successful moments throughout that time. First and foremost, as someone with no Journalism experience in the beginning; yet having a strong desire to gain that experience, it was a way for me to have my own vehicle, and get to that next level. When people were constantly telling me no, it was a way for me to bypass those people and get what I wanted. I've had the tremendous blessing of interviewing hundreds of artists, musicians, television, and film stars over the years. During those years, I took things a step further by pursuing my education. In retrospect, shutting down for a short period was the best thing I could have done, because it allowed me to focus on my educational goals, and I've been able to earn multiple degrees in Journalism. I can now use this vehicle to truly take the Journalism world by storm, and show another side than what people have been used to seeing out there."
