The kindness of strangers

October 18, 2018

To most people, something like a laptop is a luxury. Most folks can get by using the library computer, their phone, or a desktop without much hassle or fuss. It’s not the same for me. A laptop is truly an accessibility item for me. I have numerous chronic health conditions, two of which cause me… Read More ›

Closing of Multifarious Press

I’ve been dreading both coming to this decision and telling people about it. One of the hardest things for me to do is admit I’ve been a fool. But boy have I ever been a fool in thinking that *I* had it in me to run a press. I don’t. I really don’t. If it… Read More ›

Authorial Envy, Friendships and how to deal.

It’s a fact of life I think that anyone with a book out is going to (whether we want to or not) compare our books with the ones that big 5 publishing gives the marketing push to. I sure do. It stinks. I hate it that I compare my books with the ones that have… Read More ›

Not A Romance

Anyone in romancelandia knows that RWA has a stinky track record when it comes to diverse romance of many different varieties. (Or if you don’t, you probably could do some reading to get yourself up to date.) Racism, homosexual hate, bisexual hate, and so many other forms of dislike and hatred that it’s exhausting to… Read More ›

Bloodbound’s release is an emotional one for me.

I have so many mixed emotions about my Debut release from a publisher. I have books out, ones I’ve released myself. I know how to do it, but the experience of being traditionally published is so completely different from self-pubbing that I feel justified in calling BLOODBOUND my debut. I’ve gone from frustration, to joy,… Read More ›

THERE ARE SPOILERS FOR INFINITY WAR IN THIS REVIEW. Content Warning Foul Language. . . . . . Last chance… SPOILERS AHEAD. Some for Age of Ultron and other Marvel titles as well. I’m going to preface this by saying that I don’t follow the comics. I haven’t since uni for a couple of reasons…. Read More ›

Final Fantasy 14 Geek-out

I’ve been a gamer since I was tiny. Ever since pong. I think I was six the first time I played a computer game of some sort. On an Atari. Yes. I’m THAT old. Shhhh. First actual computer was a Commodore 64. So that means I’ve been gaming with some regularity for probably 35 years?… Read More ›

I’m a broken, beautiful mess… am I safe with you?

Um… all sorts of CWs on this. I’m gonna be frank. I am. I’m broken. I’m like one of those Japanese Kintsugi potteries. Shattered, broken by life, and somehow glued back together with precious stuff… the stuff of my soul, maybe. Sometimes it’s been the kindness of friends. Regardless, I’m broken. I think with the… Read More ›

A love letter to my autistic children-by KaelanRhy

So many of these ‘autism martyr parent’ books are positioned as a ‘love letter’ to their autistic kids. I’m autistic, I feel love, very deeply and the way I feel about my kids, who are both also autistic, doesn’t even come close to what those people write. So. Just to put it out there (and… Read More ›

Ongoing saga

In the ongoing saga of how I’m being bullied and harassed by Whitney Ellenby and her husband Keith, I’ve received yet another email, AFTER ASKING THEM TO STOP. She has said that she’s reporting me to Twitter, Goodreads and ‘appropriate online authorities’ that *I* am in direct violation because my EMAIL tells her it’s going… Read More ›
