Too many of you don't know me. Don't know enough about me. Don't seem to understand me...
This won't change any of that.
But if you have a kindle or read books using the Kindle software you can download my book of Micro Fiction that pretty makes people's brains overload... for free. For a very limited time.
Starting April 30th and lasting until I get tired of giving it away for free, my book, Unselected, will be FREE. No strings attached.
• Been lying to yourself that you'll read my work, f*ck you, go read it.
• Need some inspiration, writers tell me that this book singlehandedly made them write trilogies.
• Missing some part of your soul to a demon, too bad.... here's a free book.
I went deep into the sads yesterday/last night. I tried to self-medicate with orgasms, and with alcohol, but ultimate what helped me most was drawing on other people's happies. So my thanks, to all of you who shared a happy with me yesterday. I hadn't the energy to respond individually, but I read every comment.
Today I am on a fixit mission; the robe for commencement that I got from the campus bookstore is too tight. I need to go there and get the full figured robe instead.
After that, it will be an afternoon of editing and writing. I can make a Productivity Hangout, if anybuggy wants.
All I fucking wanted to do was smile and exchange pleasantries with someone in the coffeeshop while putting milk and sugar in my coffee. All I did was meet his eyes and say good morning, and I ended up conversationally cornered by a man who told me, among other things, that boys learn by doing, not talking, and that men are chromosomally wired to ignore the female voice.
It’s been a while since I got stuck having to listen to someone who clearly does not consider me a human being. My smile-and-nod powers are strong. Today it was mostly just smile, though; I couldn’t bear to nod to what he was saying.
Eventually, I Have A Nice Day'd him on his way, because I hit my bullshit limit, and even though I'd gotten my coffee to go I sat down to wait for him to be well and truly gone. And to wait for my hands to stop shaking. I passed the time thinking up all sorts of nasty things I could have said that he never would have known, were he truly hardwired to naturally ignore the female voice.
If surrounding myself with people who consider me human and worth listening to means I have built an echo chamber, so be it. I don't have to agree with people ll the time. Hell, I don't WANT to. But I also have no truck with making people feel Less Than or somehow Unworthy.
You have worth, dammit, and so do I.
Productivity Hangout going for anybody who wants, from now till 11am EST, at which point I m writing with Murphy and Linachu.
I think I might write murdery things. I'm in a mood, now, y'see.
If you like it, and want to see more such things, I recommend checking out Bits of Bliss, my little collection of erotic SF/F microfictions and short stories: http://amzn.to/1NTQTHY
Lookit, lookit, you can see my white hair in this picture! It NEVER seems to show up in photographs, which makes me nuts, but you can see it here, yaaaaay!
Around quarter of midnight last night, SALM was Minecrafting and I was watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and we were like,
"You wanna watch some Leverage? Or maybe Blacklist?"
"Ooh, I could go for some Leverage!"
"Although.... we could also... go to bed?"
And we did, and we slept, and my dreams were SO BUSY, but it was good, mostly. Except for the awkward social situation. WTF dreams.
Anyway, I'm off to buy a severed head with the girlchild, and then I am going to spend a nice chunk of time in the basement, weaving and catching up on correspondence (and hopefully I haven't misplaced any of the letters that are waiting for my response).
If you want to correspond with me by snailmail, yay! Send something to PO Box 473, Sharon, MA 02067. Make sure it's got your mailing address in it somewhere, so I know where to write back!
Oooh this coffee is good. Hi.
His photograph is far better than my photograph of his photograph, I assure you. But yeah, that's a <3
Please tell me something good, big or small, that is happening with you.
Only months after her victory over Oberon and Titania, everything Lydia thought she'd accomplished is unraveling: Faerie is falling into decay, the Fae are restless, and Taylor—the baby sister she sacrificed everything for—has grown up without her.
When Taylor tumbles out of the ordinary world and into Faerie, she discovers that Aeon, her imaginary childhood friend, is all too real. He is a powerful Fae, trapped in a maze of vengeance, memory, and madness. His unleashed power threatens to free Oberon and Titania and reignite the war Lydia had ended.
The sisters, now nearly strangers to one another, must figure out how to keep Aeon from destroying Faerie and safeguard the mortal world, all without sacrificing the Fae who was once friend to them both.
The long-awaited sequel to THE BETWEEN, TIME AND TITHE also can be read as a stand-alone story of the world of the Fae.
Even if fantasy isn't your thing, would you help a writer out and download it anyway? The more downloads a free book gets, the better visibility it has for new readers to discover it. And, hey, you might even like it! ;)
