First, a reminder:  Today is the last day to win $45 worth of gift cards, signed books, and more!   That’s all the face-time my novel gets today, because I want to talk to you about beer.  But not just any beer: home-brewed beer.  Over the past few months, a number of my hobbies have […]

Happy Halloween!

The big day has finally arrived, and as usual, I wish I could turn back the clock so it could be October 1st again.  I love Halloween of course, but now that it’s here, I know it’ll be over all too soon. I spent last night watching the Halloween specials that have become part of […]

First, a short announcement:  I received word today that work has officially begun on the cover art for my novel.  Exciting news to be sure.  Other than that very general news, I’m keeping the other information (like *who* is doing the artwork) close to my chest.

Home Brewed Beer: A Writer’s Best Friend?
Posted on: May 3rd, 2011 by Anthony Rapino 17 Comments

Confession.  There is little to no relationship between home-brewed beer and writing, except the little known fact that if you write while drunk on homebrew you’ll be visited by the beer goblin who will grant you one publishing wish…per beer…per day.  That’s why alcoholic writers are so famous.  And so, well, drunk. To get off […]
