Happy MAGA Day!

Update 11/13/17:  MAGA 2020 & Beyond has been mentioned on PJ Media.  Any press will be added to this post.  I am very excited for this! I’ve had a really rough week, but today is a momentous day for me.  Sure, I got into my first really nasty fight on Gab, and I feel deeply …

MAGA 2020 and Beyond

So, in an earlier post, I mentioned something about a big announcement.  Well, this is that big announcement. I have written a story for this anthology, called MAGA:  2020 and Beyond.  Click the title to pre-order the Kindle edition.  Right now, it is $4.99.  The anthology is obviously pro-Trump, and the stories and essays within …

I’m Not Dead

The past couple of weeks have been busy and stressful.  I wrote about this on Gab, I think, but a couple of weeks ago I went to California to visit family, and recruited some family members as beta readers for Nemesis.  So far they like it.  I am going to have to call them this week …

Just Took an Important Step

I live on the East Coast, but was born and raised on the West Coast.  I just came back from a week-long vacation, where I visited my relatives.  While there I recruited my family members – three to be exact- as beta readers for the fifth draft of the tentatively titled Nemesis. I am nervous and …

Maybe this is a good thing

Superversive SF linked to a Vulture article about the Twitter furore over The Black Witch by Laurie Forest.  It’s called “The Toxic Drama on YA Twitter.”  I still have yet to finish the book, by the way.  I have to admit, it’s way too preachy for my taste.  Just way too much, and it’s not fun …

A post about social anxiety disorder

I posted something on Medium called “You can’t just turn it off.”  It’s about my, uh, struggle with social anxiety disorder (so there’s one reason you can’t post comments on my blog).  It’s short.  I mentioned things I didn’t really want to mention, but helping erase the stigma surrounding mental illness in general is really important …

The lust for destruction can never be fulfilled

Another day, another ZOMG SHE’S RACIST U GUISE campaign. Yes, the vicious social justice warrior feminazi hags are on the march for yet another scalp. They nearly destroyed Keira Drake’s literary career before it began, of which resulted in the year-long delay of her debut novel’s release (presumably, as I stated earlier, to make the …

Sex and violence

So I was mucking about on r/books and I found this interview with the author of the Lemony Snicket series.  Apparently, the guy is going to publish a book about a sex-obsessed teenage boy, and it’ll be published in August of this year. In it, there is the obligatory “how do you feel about your young …

Oh hell no!

  Oh no no no no no.  NO.  I read the following paragraph a few days ago and saw red: That said, it does seem counterintuitive to advocate that there be less sex in YA and I worry that people will lump me in with the moralistic, puritanical voices of those who are likely to …
