My husband classical figurative sculptor SABIN HOWARD is teaching a webinar. He’s an amazing draughtsman–he really knows the body. Check it out.

Fantastic. Absolutely fantastic.
I’m not going to lie, I hesitated to pick up Fallen but once I did, I was immediately drawn into its pages. Within Fallen you will find what is the end of the world, what caused the disaster, and those who were able to survive. Emma is with a band of chidden, fighting off what is the the mist. The mist will destroy everything in its path, killing everything in its path. When the mist gets to you, it is a very painful death.
The book opens up with Mandy, Emma’s five year old daughter, about to get killed from the mist. Instead of allowing Mandy to be taken from the mist, Emma carries around a gun to end the persons misery. Right before Emma had to put a bullet in her own daughters head, comes a group of men to save the day. With the mist gone, the men are about to go their own way but Emma knows that if that happens, the group doesn’t have much of a chance at surviving. So Emma does the only thing she can think of. She agrees to stay with the leader of the group, Arthur….
I adored both Emma’s personality; the way she knew exactly what had to be done and did whatever needed to be done to save not only her and her daughters life but the lives of the people she’s grown to love. With Arthur, he is your adverse manly man that wan’t have any one defying him but has a soft spot for Emma. Even when it comes to her ridiculous demands for toothpaste and showers.
I can not wait for the next book in this series. If you have yet to read Fallen, it is a book that you must put on your to read list. While younger readers may not enjoy it as much, I know that older readers will find it as inspiring as I did.
Quillette Magazine published my article on why artists aren’t necessarily leftist: “Art, Commerce, and Vision.”
If you don’t know Quillette, check it out! It’s an online platform for free speech.
Here’s what I wrote my friends:
I am delighted to send you my article on Quillette Magazine. It’s about why artists aren’t necessarily Left-wing. I write about Sabin and his work and broach, yes, the question of what real art is. Hint: “Real art is the product of the personal, human vision of the artist… Beauty, excellence, and the artist’s skill matter.”If you don’t know Quillette Magazine, I recommend it. Quillette is a platform for free-thinking. It’s one of the very few places taking on current controversies in a thoughtful way. Please consider becoming a Patron of this extraordinary venue.One note. If you follow my twitter feed, @tracilslatton, you will see that I follow, like, and retweet some Twitter users who are much further to the Right than I am, personally. I do this to preserve their voices. Twitter, along with Facebook and Google, is hell-bent on silencing Conservative voices. I see this as antithetical to free speech, which is the foundation of democracy. We the people need lively, and civil, discussions between people of different viewpoints. We the people need the opportunity to consider all viewpoints of an issue. Technocrat fascism must be resisted.

Traci on the inspiration behind The Love Of My Other Life
“I wrote this novel for the hopeful romantic in all of us,” says Slatton. “I was inspired by daydreaming, really. I imagined what it would be like if a scruffy man showed up on my doorstep out of the blue one day, claiming to be my soulmate – albeit in a parallel world – and then it turned out he really was! But he couldn’t stay. Tessa is a woman with her own passion and her own center, but she’s lost her way. She’s been looking for Brian her entire life and didn’t even know it.”
