Every artist who makes it in New York has a different story to tell. Here is one fictionalized story that will open your eyes! Learn some really important lessons from Aster Lynn’s story …

In my creativity coaching work with countless artists over the years I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t work for an artist trying to make it in New York. I wanted to put that knowledge into a novel that would also operate as riveting fiction. I think I’ve done that in Aster Lynn.

In it I tackle everything from subject matter choices to rivalries to self-promotion to dealing with gallery owners to dealing with collectors. I think you’ll find it valuable and entertaining. I invite you to read the first chapter right now:


By the way, I’m serializing this novel with the good folks at JukePop Serials. I think what they do may interest you. Many visual artists are also writers or dream of writing. If you’re a visual artist who’s dreamed of writing a novel (or who maybe has a completed novel or a partially completed novel “sitting around in a drawer”) you might want to learn what these folks do. Maybe you have a novel to serialize with them!

I invited them to describe themselves, so here goes:
