Bloodbound’s release is an emotional one for me.

(0)
June 11, 2018

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 ›

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 ›

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 ›

In the interest of transparency

CONTENT WARNING mention of panic attacks, abuse of autistics, mention of email harassment, ableist language as a self-label I reviewed a harmful book by an autistic martyr parent. It’s gone viral, so you may have heard. Here is the review, here is the twitter thread. When this page came across my feed, the author claiming… Read More ›

Review: PETER RABBIT the movie, by SONY

THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS First, I don’t tend to review movies, because I’m much more of a book person, and the movies I *would* review I tend not to, because I don’t want to spoil them for people who can’t see them right away. My kid wanted to see Peter Rabbit, so, given that it’s… Read More ›

Soft-blocking can be ableist, so what?

I get in so much trouble for this idea. I have people who unfollow me because they tell me I’m being harmful by pointing out that soft-blocking can be ableist. I have people arguing with me because it’s ‘just what people do’ and no more harmful than ghosting someone in real life. Spoiler, ghosting someone… Read More ›

Me: Autistic.

I’m sitting here cuddling my sick son. Wondering how badly the world is going to chew him up and spit him out because he’s autistic. Just like I am. It’ll be bad. I know that. The world is going to break him. I would let it break me, over and over and over again to… Read More ›

Queer Kerfluffles and Marginalized readers

Content warning bad words and loud opinions. EDIT: JESUS FUCKING CHRIST ON A CRUTCH. Non-autistic readers, I am AUTISTIC, I mean ONLY what I’m saying with the words that are on the page. I am not IMPLYING anything. There is NO HIDDEN MESSAGE. Y’all have caused me to have an emotional meltdown with your accusations…. Read More ›

Research as a writer

So. Research, we all know we need to do it, right? I mean… we DO know we need to do some, when we’re writing, right? Nope. We all really don’t seem to know this. I read a book this past weekend that was a historical and it was very, very obvious that a lot (or… Read More ›
