    You asked and we listened! Our first ever fine art calendar filled with twelve months of uplifting art is now available for only $20. Perfect for your desk or as a gift, this calendar is work friendly and just the right size. For details go to http://cordair.com/wordpress/calendar.
  2. I am especially proud to share that Quent Cordair’s latest short story, The Match, was published on May 15, 2013 and has already soared to #2 on Amazon’s Hot New Release list. (see attached image) As I write this post, Quent has received 22 stellar reviews. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CTWYBKC If you enjoy well-written fiction that leaves you wanting to read more by the author, I highly recommend this story. All you need is 99 cents and the ability to carve about an hour out of your day. The reward is well worth the effort. If you do not own a kindle, Amazon offers a free reading app that allows downloads to your computer or smart phone. 5 Stars – “Quent Cordair writes boldly and beautifully and The Match is one of his best short stories.” – Michael Wilkinson 5-Stars – “I think of Quent Cordair's short stories as ‘red bull for the soul’ because they give me the same ‘desire to be active’ and ‘zest for life’ as that drink advertises. This story is much like his others in that way and I recommend it highly.”- Daniel Wahl 5-Stars – “Brilliant! If you've enjoyed any of Ayn Rand's novels, but are short on time and can't re-read Atlas Shrugged just now, this short story will tide you over.” – Adam Jensen 5-Stars – “Buy it. Read it. Prepare to be surprised.” – John Newnham 5-Stars – “What a delightful short story! There's a perfect symmetry that guides the reader through the discovery of the story. The plot is immensely satisfying as everything fits together in a way that makes sense and feels logically right. The vividly drawn characters and concretization of such powerful issues makes this short story a stirring experience. I highly recommend it as a read that offers fuel to the American spirit.” – Rachel Miner More at www.amazon.com/The-Match-ebook/dp/B00CTWYBKC.
  3. We launched an exciting new page on our web site this week that we think will be very popular. Our Bridal and Gift Registry page is going to make giving and receiving fine art as gifts easier than ever. We are also launching new pages for Commissioned Art as well as our Art Consulting services. These pages will continue to grow over the coming weeks. If you are on Facebook, be sure to check out and like our page there. Several images are posted daily for your viewing pleasure.
  4. In this challenging financial environment, it is vital that we continue the flow of great art coming from of our artists' studios. We are committed to keeping the art flowing and to continuing our financial support of our artists even if that means thinking outside the box a bit at present. Fortunately, we've built up a bountiful collection of fine paintings and sculpture over the past few years - we can afford to be flexible occasionally. Our retail display space is full and we need to make room for new art that we're expecting. So, in light of the present economy and just in time for the holidays, several of our artists are being gracious and flexible enough to allow us to offer you the opportunity to place bids on a small selection of pieces, making it possible to acquire desired art at an appreciable savings. As the smart investor knows, challenging times equate to some of the best buying opportunities. We're accepting silent bids on the following artworks until 12-noon PST, December 7th. Working with the artists, we've set very reasonable reserves on the works -- no, we're not giving them away -- but, subject to the reserves, the art will be sold to the highest bid received by the auction deadline. Submit your bids to Linda@cordair.com. Details and imgaes at http://tinyurl.com/btpzbxv

  9. Short Stories by Quent Cordair

    Quent Cordair's newest short story, "Sheltered" has debuted on Amazon and is available for only 99 cents on Kindles. It can also be downloaded to computers and smart phones using the free Kindle reading app. “A year and six days underground without sunlight or breeze or contact with the world above—whatever might be left of the world above. A year and six days without touch, without unrecorded voice, without contact, without friends or family. If only they had listened, if only they had been ready. But he—he had prepared. He was Reginald B. Wakefield, and he hadn’t died. A wave of vindication washed over him, lifting and sweeping away all doubt and fear. He had been right. He raised his eyes again to the hatch cover above. . . . He had been right.” In “Sheltered,” the timely short story by Quent Cordair, one man follows his own course in response to growing fears of impending disaster and societal breakdown. Enjoy the story. There are more on the way!
  10. After a long hiatus while he works on completing his novel, Quent Cordair has released a new short story on Amazon which can be downloaded on to Kindles, computers and smart phones for only 99 cents. "Sheltered" is newly published and has never been available anywhere before now, including the Quent Cordair Fine Art web site. Description: “A year and six days underground without sunlight or breeze or contact with the world above—whatever might be left of the world above. A year and six days without touch, without unrecorded voice, without contact, without friends or family. If only they had listened, if only they had been ready. But he—he had prepared. He was Reginald B. Wakefield, and he hadn’t died. A wave of vindication washed over him, lifting and sweeping away all doubt and fear. He had been right. He raised his eyes again to the hatch cover above. . . . He had been right.” In increasingly uncertain times, how does one respond to rising fears of impending disaster and societal breakdown? In “Sheltered,” the timely short story by Quent Cordair, one man follows his own course in the face of rising costs. Quent and I would love to hear from you, especially if you enjoy the story. If you are so inclined, please leave him a review on the Amazon page. Thanks and happy reading!
  11. In the months leading up to the release of his much anticipated novel, Quent Cordair has begun to publish his short stories on Amazon. The first short story, "A Prelude to Pleasure" is getting rave reviews and has made the #6 spot on Amazon's "Hot New Releases" list. Quent's story can be downloaded for 99 cents to Kindles as well as to computers and smart phones via a free Kindle app. "A Prelude to Pleasure" is the tale of how a man of accomplishment and wealth goes about finding his true love--and what he discovers along the way, with the help of a boy who reminds him of who he once was. One reviewer said, "The characters are nicely drawn and the dramatic tension unfolds according to a clever, inexorable logic: Will the hero ruin his life with a bad decision -- or have the courage to make the right decision?" Quent will be publishing many of his short stories on Amazon over the coming months. This one is sure to wet your appetite and leave you wanting more. If you enjoy the story, please leave Quent a review on the Amazon page. Thanks and happy reading!
