DADBOD: 20 Songs and Videos Make the Ultimate Ode to Fatherhood
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) After 25 years in the entertainment industry writing, directing, and producing video games, animations, interactive narratives, and audio projects (see: Electronic Arts, Broken Saints, The Cat’s Maw, and Buddha and the S**t — plus a win at the Sundance Film Festival), DADBOD lands as more than just a mid-life singer/songwriter flex. No, this is the legend of an incredible boy, the man who was transformed by his love, and the kind of bond that comes around once-in-a-million-lifetimes.
SHADOWLAND: A Sequel in Progress (Book Update)
VOLUME 2 in The Shadowland Saga. The sequel to my acclaimed, award-winning debut novel: The Cat's Maw. Whispers from beyond the veil have been a long time coming...and you're just gonna have to wait a little longer. Is it out of fear? Procrastination? Laziness? Writer's block? Perfectionism? Typical 'life' distractions gumming up the gears? All of the above, I reckon. But there's an unexpected reason it's taken so long to muster the confidence to dive back into this epic story.
BRANCHING NARRATIVE: Choose Your Adventure!
Whether crafting linear or branching narratives, the end goal remains the same — Emotional Engagement. I've been thinking about this a LOT lately. And that's only natural when app and game and media folks keep wanting to bend your ear and chat 'choose your own adventure stuff'. Something, my friends, is in the air...
WRITING PROMPT: BS Series Pitch
A lot of you keep asking, 'Hey Brooke, will there ever be a live-action Broken Saints series?' Well, back in the day the concern was always the same — American networks and viewers just weren't ready for the 'limited series' format. But now, thanks to streaming services desperate for original content, it looks like the TV landscape has finally grown up.
A B.B. 'BLACK FRIDAY' BONANZA!
The whole 'Black Friday' thing creeps me out something fierce, and is right at the top of my list when it comes to proof of the imminent collapse of civilization. But I USED to be a certifiably crazy collector. A completist. So this post is for you, my fellow 'hunters' — for friends and fans who need to catch 'em all...
AUTHOR INTERVIEW w/BLOGS of a BLONDE BOOKIE!

On Napster, the Creative Class, and the Future of FREE...
I was catching up on eps of Silicon Valley the other day. I love the show. My tech and venture capital pals assure me that the portrayal is pretty much an accurate one. And, as I watched the latest, I was reminded of something I used to ponder often. Specifically, when the douchey, monied bro' below spouted the following: 'I put Radio...on the Internet.'
THE REVIEWS ARE IN!!!
A BOOK IS BORN! But it needs GODPARENTS =))
I’m about to start Book 2 in earnest (title to be revealed early 2017). The plot’s been in stone for some time now, the chapters are outlined, and the prologue is already written*! But Book 1 in The Shadowland Saga-- The Cat’s Maw -- needs to leave its firm paw-print in the literary world in order to get more young readers, scary mystery lovers, and feline fanatics clamouring for what comes next...
