So, I went to a harvest festival today... I am now very damp.

I really wish the photo accompanying this article was of the man who hugged this individual rather than the one who punched him. But I'm linking anyway, because this story is a touching example of a man meeting hate with kindness rather than a violence that would vendicate the hater in his own mind.

Once again, my seat is taken, but I can't move Zakara because it's Caturday. (She jumped in it the second I got up from breakfast. I think she believes I was just warming it for her.)

I highly recommend this book!
I decided to do a little treat for folks-- now through this weekend, my humorous Gothic mystery, THE CURIOUS CASE OF MARY ANN (ebook version), will be $0.99 (and proportionately cheap in the UK, Canada, etc.). I know budgets are tight right now and I thought this might be a nice way for readers to get a fun and escapist read on the cheap.

So... I just left a neutral/negative review for a book. Under my own name, even. This has me terrified. But I felt I had to, because the book was actively triggering suicidal idiations.

It wasn't a novel. It was a self-help book, a book that was supposed to be helping me "be happy, overcome writer's block, and stay motivated".

Instead, I was interpreting its messages to say things like the following:

You're not imagining things; your work really is crap.

You shouldn't bother writing, because you write novels and not overpriced short stories.

Anyone can be a financially successful writer, so you must be really bad if you aren't.

Have lots of sex. You're broken if that doesn't fix you.

You fail at everything that isn't writing, too.

You suck at life because you can't wake your body up at the same time every day, let alone be reliably productive bright and early.


I was only a third of the way through its mere 60 pages at that point. When a friend texted just then to ask how I was doing, I realized I'd been crying for half an hour. I returned the book and started composing a warning for it.

Management has decided to remove my books from Kindle Unlimited, so if you are a KU subscriber who hasn't read them all, now is the time to do it.
In the past, Hedgie Press has participated in Amazon's Kindle Unlimited program in an effort to provide affordable reading to a broad audience. However, we have made the decision that these goals will be better met outside the program as by leaving we will be able to offer our ebooks on a variety of non-Kindle platforms.

We look forward releasing all of our books for Nook, Kobo, and other e-readers.

Below is a link to our book list. If you wish to read one of these titles as part of Kindle Unlimited, do so now as they will be disappearing from the program over the next few months. Our books will, of course, still be available for purchase on Kindle, and if you have already purchased one on the platform, your copy will not be affected.
