Nuno Kindle Version Release

My publisher (Aignos) has just announced the release of the Kindle version of my novel, Nuno. This is the novel that caused Jonathan Marcantoni and his wife, Suset, to stare at each other in existential, dialectical astonishment for ten minutes before they both passed out! This is the book that caused Zachary Oliver to have slight convulsions on board a flight to Guam.

Nuno is the quintessential, definitive and ultimate Brazilian wax for your brain—accelerant for that little spark of faith you have left in humanity—a tantalizing case for the possibility that love actually exists and that giants have indeed roamed the earth and proven beyond all doubt that all the hells brought upon us by cowardly and visionless men are all worth it just for the chance to be with the one you love.


I’ve finished the first three paintings of a new series, ‘Androgynous,’ continuing the use of shironuri (painted white) makeup, associated with goth look in Tokyo fashion and the traditional geisha and maiko.  The Japanese word, geisha, translates as artist (gei meaning “art” and sha meaning “person” or “doer”).  To me, an artist is someone who is different, thereby challenging perceptions and shifting awareness.

Something that seems to bother many people greatly is the spectrum of gender.  Anything that can cause further thought, contemplation and acceptance is probably a good thing.  Perhaps one day, the androgynous, transgender, gender neutral and gender fluid will be seen not as threatening but as art (or as a comment below put it: as people).

Carlos and I sat down last August, and I was very impressed with not only his talent, but also his kindness. He is worldly, imaginitive, and prolific in his expression of his creative genius. Be sure to catch this local treasure’s latest exhibit–Samurai Dark Chocolate at Delray’s Arts Garage! Why asked for the play-on-words reason behind the name of the exhibit, Carlos explained:

“Dark Chocolate is the nutritious, antioxidant-rich form of the deliciousness derived from the cocoa seed. So, a “Dark Chocolate” Japan, for instance, would be the best version of Japan–or, at least what I like best about it. And, this Samurai Dark Chocolate is an extension of what…
