Cristian S. Aluas is a painter, comics artist and graphic novelist in Kanata/Ottawa, Canada.
"As an artist, I am on a creative journey to constantly derive more out of myself. Some of my favorite experiences with art have been when I pick up a pad of paper or am facing a blank canvas and do not quite know what I will draw or paint. I feel around for some shapes, with my pencil or pen, and soon enough a figure emerges.
I draw and paint, primarily, and occasionally I have built things out of wood or metal. My specialty is the human form, whether alone or interacting. I feel that a strong foundation in reality is important so that one can build a database of knowledge from which to extract references for creating subjects from ones imagination. I believe I have a fairly vast catalog of images, especially for drawing and painting people. I also like to challenge myself to try new things, like drawing and painting scenic backgrounds.
When I started out professionally, after College and University, I went into an abstract phase (my famous "Silverback" period) and then into the "Signature" period. The culmination of those two periods can be seen in my first masterpiece painting "Big Portrait #1." Then I went into a dark romantic period that blossomed into the brighter "Golden Boy" series. "

John Graham is a self-publisher and "Book Coach". A book coach is someone that can help you figure out your publishing goals and how to get there in the most economical manner. People think of John like a consultant who doesn't necessarily do the work for you, but instead helps you to learn the things you need to know so you can be successful. Sometimes the only obstacle we have from accomplishing something is the fact that we can't clearly see the steps involved. Through our discussions, John can help you see those steps and determine the best timing to move through them.

From living a nightmare, to building a dream. Graphic Novelist J.C.S. may only be 27 years old but she has come a long way. Abused as a child, and seemingly lost as a teen, she has turned her scraps into diamonds. So far, she has written six novels, has published five of those novels, and as also finished a trilogy known as Anguished Immortals.
She will tell you, her goal was this: to publish and take care of her family. Her first attempt to write a novel came at the age of 15, and in between ten years, she tried and failed.
Growing up in Denver, Colorado, it was realized (and said) countless times that opportunity in the workforce was greater and more stable than most states, especially for a woman. But having Systemic Lupus and two children only ten and a half months apart changed everything.
Early 2012, inspiration came as J.C.S. decided to write her first romance novel. Even though it was a completed work, she saw that it wasn't yielding light on her talent. After doing a little research on the Archangel of Death and the Greek Goddess of War, Enyo, the makings of an Epic Fantasy trilogy had just begun.
Taking her work to Authonomy and trying out the first two books, J.C.S. realized that sticking with something she loved, Epic Fantasy, did her better than trying to fit in.
In 2013 J.C.S. wrote and published the first book to Bleeding Stars and Paper Hearts: Adrianna is Mine, following the same previewing and publishing path of her previous work. The audience from Authonomy helped her decide on publishing when not only had her book gone from #599 to #31 in a week, it stayed at #7 for three weeks and #1 for two.
