Featured Bard of the Week is T. Novan

This week's featured bard of the week is T. Novan. I've loved TN for the last 20 years. Met TN back in 2001 and I'm in awe of his talent. Look at the list of fiction that has been created over the years. Check out TN's little space on AUSXIP:

I've lost count how many Xippy Awards TN has received over the years. Is there a favourite? No I love it all BUT I have to choose Classic and Uber to showcase on

Does Australia Get Marriage Equality? Today we find out at 10 AM AEDT

Today is decision day. At 10 am AEDT the postal vote in the marriage equality survey will be announced. 80% of the postal votes have been cast. That is HUGE. Which way will it go? I hate waiting. 10 am Sydney time. Decision day. I can't begin to imagine what my brothers/sisters in the LGBTI community are feeling. Does Australia get dragged into the 21st century or do we stay in the dark ages? At 10 am we will find out.

Stay tuned.

Today is Remembrance Day (aka Armistice Day). The guns fell silent on the 11th day of the 11th Month in the 11th hour in 1918 and World War I ended. Lest We Forget.

We have a logo for the Featured Artist of the Week. Featured Artist of the Week: Lucia Nobrega 

There are a lot of artists in the Xenaverse that are spectacular. When I think of Xenaverse artist, the first name that springs to mind is someone I have known since 1999. August 1999 is when Lucia sent me some cartoon characters she was working and asked me if I wanted to post them on AUSXIP.  I opened the attached images and fell in love. Little Xena and Gabrielle were staring back at me. Lucia Nobrega had drawn two of the most beloved character as Little Xena and Gabrielle. Did I want to post them on AUSXIP? Easiest decision ever made. My answer was YES!!!!

That is why for the inaugural AUSXIP Featured Artist of the Week goes to Lucia Nobrega and she also drew Little Xena and Gabrielle for the Featured Artist Logo (she didn't know it at the was an idea brewing in my head).

Today I'm announcing a new AUSXIP Xena feature. I've already got a Featured Bard of the Week. Now it's the turn of artists - I'll be showcasing an artist and their work (either here on AUSXIP or elsewhere) in the Xenaverse!

The ORIGINAL idea of AUSXIP was to showcase my art (that's where the P in AUSXIP comes in...PAGE. It was only supposed to be ONE PAGE and then a gallery of my art. Well that was the plan. Anyhoo it would be great to showcase artwork because as an artist, I love great art. The Xenaverse has INCREDIBLE artists.

Do you want to nominate an artist and their work? Contact me!

I will announce the first featured artist tomorrow!

I've written an article for the site Women & Words and I talk about how writers / authors need to give readers a respite from the dark and gritty world with our stories. I also discuss how two of my stories are made into radio plays and how relevant they are today (sexual harassment/ misogyny and the other deals with refugees) even though they cover topics that were just as important in 1948/1950.

Message from Steven Sears

Every year, Combat Radio buses in 'Polar Express style' about 400 children (and their families) from Social Services for what is essentially Christmas. The event is an all you can eat, first class, brunch at Salt Creek Grille in Valencia with presents, about 80 characters (from Disney to Star Wars to The Avengers) Entertainment, LIVE Broadcast and.....a visit from Santa Claus! This year we plan to bring Christmas to 600 children and we need your help to do it. The following donations (which are tax-deductible) go to charter busses (we need 12 busses) presents (on average 10.00 ea) food and tech costs. To encourage some help we've offered the following (take a look at the last prizes below) hopefully, YOU will get involved and help us bring Christmas to families that could really use a little kindness.....

Go to the GOFUNDME page to help out!
