#85 – POET, WRITER, AND DIRECTOR – Jessica “Empress Prestige” McCready - 2016-07-17

Poet, Writer, and Director, Jessica “Empress Prestige” McCready on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Founder of Poetry In Motion Productions: (PIMP!), Jessica, now known as “Empress Prestige,” knows a thing or two about doing her own thing. She began what started as an unformed idea mass four years ago and worked it into what is now a thriving, repeat project of her own unique concept: ChoreoPoems.

These are forms of dramatic expression that combine poetry, dance, music and song. She conceptualizes the overall story arc, directs the talent, and produces the overall program; but, what makes her plays so unique is that she leaves creative license for each role and its expression to the individual player. Essentially, the cast writes much of the content and she threads it together into a cohesive, intelligent expression of her story.

Their next project is the 4th installment of Pleasant City Thee ChoreoPoem to be shown soon at The Palm Beach Improv and The Mozart Theatre. Also, Empress is working to bring this piece into the forum of a film called Thee Movie. So exciting!!

Her storytelling has community and cultural purpose for the enjoyment and education of every generation. Her diligence, humor, and passion are a true inspiration!

#48 – BEST-SELLING AUTHOR – Ali Brandon - 2015-10-20

Ali Brandon a.k.a. Diane A.S. Stuckart on the Curve the Cube Podcast

Texas transplant best known for her cozy mystery series, the Black Cat Bookshop Mysteries, Ali Brandon (a.k.a., Diane Stuckart) is a New York Times best-selling author! There are four books currently in the series, with the fifth book, Plot Boiler, to debut November 3rd:
1) Double Booked for Death, 2011
2) A Novel Way To Die, 2012
3) Words with Fiends, 2013
4) Literally Murder, 2014
5) Plot Boiler, out November 3rd, 2015

Just like her creator, protagonist Darla Pettistone is also a Texas transplant; but, she has found herself the heir of an independent bookstore housed in a New York brownstone and complete with a clever black cat full of attitude named Hamlet. In each book, a character meets an untimely end, and Darla and her sleuthing cat are on the case! I was so privileged to receive an advanced signed copy of Plot Boiler from Ali herself; I’m three chapters in and completely hooked!!! It is full of thoughtfully-crafted and colorful characters and is an absolute page-turner!!

Under the name Diane A.S. Stuckart, Ali has penned the award-winning Leonardo da Vinci historical mystery series (currently available as e-books) and has written several historical romances under other pseudonyms. Along with explaining the name changes in the podcast, Ali talks about what it takes to really sit down and write a book, what it was like to first get published, and how she became a best-seller!

Also related to this podcast:
Episode #43 – Gold Coast Paranormal Society
Episode #21 - The Street Team (featuring Estelle DeShocka)

Here’s the info on a couple of cool opportunities to meet Ali:
1) Halloween party and book-signing: Friday evening, Oct. 30th, from 6PM—8PM at the Murder on the Beach Mystery Bookstore in Pineapple Grove
2) Book-signing: Wednesday evening, Nov. 4th, from 7PM – 9PM at Carlstedt’s Floral Distributors in West Palm Beach

Head to Ali’s website to get the details on ALL her upcoming events. Find her on Facebook and Twitter as well! Though the Black Cat Bookshop Mysteries is a series, you can comfortably start with any of the books. So, be sure to pre-order Plot Boiler and help get her onto the best-sellers list again!

This episode of Curve the Cube is sponsored by Sol Experiences—the Florida events company to enhance your SOLcial life! Curve the Cube’s producer, Jaime, has personally been on a Palm Beach Gardens pub crawl and party-limo driven day trip to Key West that were both SUPER fun!!!

Aaron "aGuyOnClematis" Wormus Block

I kicked off this second series of the Curve the Cube podcast with a guy who brings us sooo much great inside-track south Florida content!  Aaron Wormus created the Twitter handle, aGuyOnClematis, to chronicle the development of the West Palm Beach waterfront—and it has turned into SO much more!

On this podcast, Aaron talks about why he brings us so many daily glimpses into the goings-on in West Palm Beach—with nearly exclusive insight into the cultural and entertainment hotspot that is Clematis Street.  He divulges one of his inside tips to getting his info, shares his favorite spots, and makes it clear that, if it’s going on on Clematis, it’s going on in his Twitter account.

And, BONUS: this podcast ended with a total surprise podcast crash by the Pizza Girls themselves, Jennifer and Phoebe!  This was definitely a super fun podcast!!
