So glad they took a real risk & chose an obscure, humble, “talented type” to be #BritishGQWomanOfTheYear #Refreshing

"Gee, Mickey, people tell me I can sing like a nightingale, dance up a storm, and make folks laugh or cry with one line of dialogue. But I always doubt I've got any real talent. Do you think I'd ever have a chance to make it in the business in, say, the year 2014?"

“Gee, Mickey, in our heyday, people used to tell me I could sing like a nightingale, dance up a storm, and make folks laugh or cry with one line of dialogue. But I always doubted I had any real talent. Do you think I would’ve had a chance to really ‘make it’ in another era? Like the year 2014, for example?”

"Gosh, I dunno, Judy. Maybe if you're willing to inject your puny butt-cheeks with enough synthetic filler to smother a rhinoceros  and then expose that distorted rump like a feverish baboon begging the entire jungle to urinate on your rancid, swollen flesh ... you could probably get some attention in 2014. "

“In terms of how talent is rewarded by the masses in 2014? Quite possibly, Judy. I mean, if you were willing to inject your ass-cheeks with enough synthetic filler to smother a rhinoceros and then gyrate like a fevered baboon begging the entire jungle to urinate on your rancid, swollen flesh, you’d get all the attention, adulation, and financial security an American girl could ask for.”

"Aw ... forget I said anything, Joots. Just stay here with me in heaven. Besides, it's all gonna blow sky-high down there for those dirty animals, anyhow. Let's go get a milkshake."

“Aw … forget I said anything, Joots. Just stick with me. Besides, I hear it’s all gonna blow sky-high down there for those filthy animals at any minute. C’mon. Let’s go get some popcorn and watch the fireworks from up here. Ought to be a swell show.”

Jonathan Kieran is withdrawing from contemporary human society to protest a multitude of offenses against taste and decency, but that doesn’t mean you need to head for the hills. No! Let Mr. Kieran become your Vicarious Hermit, serving all of your needs for solitude and isolated contemplation by proxy, as it were. Otherwise, stick around: some form of epic and expectation-shattering work is slated for release in 2015. News about future books and Jonathan’s in-development multimedia production company will be forthcoming.

For your current reading pleasure, Jonathan is the author of the classically appointed Rowan Blaize books and novels. Visit Mr. Kieran’s Official Facebook Page and give it a “Like” if you are so inclined. Meanwhile . . .

Escape the Imminent Collapse of Civilization, if only for a few hours. A sweeping modern fairy-tale is born with the Rowan Blaize series of works. Click on the book covers to the right or have a look below to learn more.

Watch the Rowan Blaize Book Trailer HERE.

Book One = The magical cornerstone – a lavishly illustrated epic narrative poem … a genuine “spell” for the young and young-at-heart to treasure for a lifetime, telling the story of sorcerer Rowan Blaize’s battle to regain his magic powers. (Think Beowulf-meets-Dr.Seuss or an epic story-in-verse of a scope similar to Tolkien’s soon-to-be-released The Fall of Arthur, only contemporary.)

Book Two = The rip-roaring novel that continues the adventures of Rowan Blaize and introduces the three hilarious witches of the Ancient City, along with its dysfunctional werewolves, wraiths, ghosts, vampires, dryads, banshees and a beauty pageant brat that just might destroy the world.

Book Three = The next novel that finds Rowan trapped by a spell in another world, caught between a faery-squashing sorceress who’ll stop at nothing to conquer the kingdom … and a feisty teenage prince who’s determined to get it back.
