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 …

This Book Banning Hogwash

In 2001, I was a big fan of The Princess Diaries, both the film and the book. The author’s website was the first author site I ever visited, and at some point, she bragged about one of the Princess Diaries installments being “banned” from a library. I just did a search on her website (megcabot.com) …

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 …

I will fight these assholes with everything I have

This.  Some worthless piece of shit billionaire named Tim Gill is actively persecuting Christians.  We wanted to be left alone after the Supreme Court “made” gay marriage “legal” but nooooo…they can’t just have their fucking “marriage” – they have to make our lives a living hell because we wanted to opt-out. From this moment on, …

Fuck you, Terry Tate

And anyone else whining and crying about the CNN meme that the media’s been whining about all week. So you think that meme will incite violence against all the poor widdle reporters that keep lying to us? So, do you dipshits mind explaining this? How the hell is this any different? Way back in 2008, …

Happy Independence Day

Happy Independence Day!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 A post shared by Elaine Arias (@ema1982) on Jul 4, 2017 at 11:18am PDT I am so tired today. I had to work, and wasn’t too enthusiastic about it. Then I spent the rest of the day at a friend’s house, watching movies and eating hot dogs and turkey burgers (still …

I really hate web ads

I do.  I really, really hate web ads – the kind of ads you see on web pages.  I’ve been using the Web regularly since 1996, so I’ve seen all kinds of ads.  First there were banner ads, and then pop up ads, and then noisy Flash ads, and then double-underlined text links within a …
