Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year, to one and all!

Let’s hope this one’s a great one. And, although I don’t want to overpromise, as usual I have quite a bit planned for this year, not least because it marks exactly 10 years of professionally published work for me.

Stay tuned for more, and start working toward those New Years’ resolutions. I know I will be.

Wishing You All the Best in 2018,

Happy Holidays 2017

I just wanted to take a moment to wish any and all Happy Holidays this year. Whether you celebrate Christmas (as I do), Hanukkah (already in progress), Kwanzaa (forthcoming), another holiday I’m yet unaware of or none at all, I hope this time of the year finds you well, and that the days and weeks approaching the New Year are a happy one for you and yours.

With All Best Wishes,
J. M. DeSantis

The New Storefront

NEWS: The New jmdesantis.com Storefront
Happy early Thanksgiving, everyone. And with that holiday begins the Holiday Season and, more the Holiday Shopping Season. With that (and though it wasn’t quite planned this way; it just worked out this way) I’m officially launching a new storefront on this website!  Read more… ›

Happy Independence Day 2017

Even though it seems like our latest president is constantly challenging the ideals and realities of the United States’ freedom and independence, I’d still like to take the time to wish all of my State-side fans a Happy Independence Day!

Let’s hope we all remain so (independent and free, that is). So in honour of that and of all of the men and women who have risked and given their lives to protect those freedoms (and thank you, immensely, by the way), I’ll be drinking a nice cold beer or two (or more) and eating a few cheeseburgers and other choice foods from the grill.

Cheers!

Happy Holidays ~ from J. M. DeSantis

Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are all nearly upon us. Then this Holiday shopping madness will come to a screeching halt, and perhaps we can all sit back and enjoy good food and the company of friends and family (or at least try our best to tolerate a few family members we would otherwise steer clear of).

Shop J. M. DeSantis this Season

Although I feel a tad awkward writing about shopping after last week’s post, my original intention had been to start promoting my online store again toward the end of October. Unfortunately, the election overshadowed that initiative (even in within myself). However, with the Holiday Shopping Season about to begin (with Black Friday being this Friday and Cyber Monday this Monday), there’s no time like the present to let you all know what I’m offering through my growing online store. And honestly, though I have no intention of abandoning last week’s stance, it is healthy to take a break from all the negativity out there right now, and what better way than to buy something for yourself or a loved one and help support a talented individual, such as myself, in the process?

Happy Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween everyone! If you celebrate the holiday, I hope you’re enjoying it safely.This week I’ll be lying low for the most part, especially because I came down with a stomach bug this morning, but also because not only is Halloween my favourite holiday, but my birthday is just two days following it (which I think I’ve written enough times in this blog).

Halloween, Dark Souls & Other Idle Occupations

J. M. DeSantis blog

It’s October 25th. Halloween is a little less than a week away, my birthday is a little more than a week away and the first Dark Souls III DLC, Ashes of Ariandel, is available today for all the travelers of Lothric to discover and explore (I’m a huge fan of the SoulsBorne games, if you didn’t know). That said, one can expect I’ll be immersed in otherwise idle occupations for the next week or so, but that’s not to say I won’t be working on at least a few things, here and there. Read more… ›

Happy New Year!

Though it’s a few days early, I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2016 is a wonderful and successful year for us all. If you wish, you can go back a couple of posts and read my reflections on 2015. Otherwise, I’ll see you all in the new year with the next issue of Chadhiyana, more Gentleman Cthulhu and much, much more!

All the Best,
J. M. DeSantis
