I've rewritten this blog about four times this morning because I've got the desire to put some feelings out there, but I'm not sure what those even are.

My… Continue reading Barb and Star Go to Vista del Mar is FANTASTIC
I'm embarrassed to say I have only just read my first book by Diana Wynne Jones. First of all, this: Diana Wynne Jones is a genius, a goddess, a fucking gift to this earth, none of us were worthy of her while she was here, and why her name hasn't been on a lot of… Continue reading I’ve Got A New Idol
Oh, my god, you gotta read more. Like, seriously. And I say this to myself as someone who reads exponentially more now than I ever have at any other point in my life. There's no upper limit. Just do it until your eyes fall out of your head. Read fiction, read from all the genres,… Continue reading Read More
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcIK3akktLU I wish being a nerd in rock n roll would come back. Since February of 2020, across all of my currently released books, I've given away 2,348 copies through Amazon's free promotions, another 358 to users who have signed up for my mailing list, and another 47 ARCs. That's 2753 complete novels out in… Continue reading Working For A…ttention?
