Independent Author Resources




The publishing world is evolving and expanding as we speak. There is so much information out there it is somewhat daunting for new authors when searching for quality advice and services. My written-work has been published traditionally and independently (self-published) and I have discovered a lot along the way, thanks to many of the listed websites below. On this journey that never ends, I have researched and compiled a list of useful and informative websites that have steered me in the direction I am now headed. The following links are all active as at time of writing (any dead links please let me know via comments below) and have either helped me in some way, or are just cool places to visit for inspiration and information. I hope you find these resources valuable to some degree.. For links to my favorite authors and horror related sites please see my links/recommended sites page. This blog post is a replication of the page that I have here on my site - please make sure to bookmark it for future reference.

Immanuel Kant's Notion of Genius in Art

This article was written in 1999 and was part of a paper I was completing in Art Theory under the tutelage of Dr Denis Dutton. Having the good fortune to be a student of Dr Dutton's was a highlight of my academic studies and I am very proud to boast of an 'A' mark for this particular essay.

He was a professor of philosophy at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch , New Zealand .
