The Writing Clown
Hello! Come in; take a seat. Would you like some tea? The water just started to boil. And how many lumps of sugar? Oh, yes, help yourself. Let me introduce myself.
I'm Dante Writes and I am head blogger and owner of Dante's Optimism, a growing leader in positive blogging. This blog is my center in the blogging/writing universe. Go there for the bulk of my awesomeness.
I wrote a book or something.
I love the Sixers. I'm not saying I'm in love. All I'm saying is, if the Sixers were a woman, I would probably marry her. Also, I write poems, plays, stories, and even other books in my spare time. These books will never be published so don't look for em.
By adding me into your circle, you become an instant follower of my blog network. And for that, I thank you.
I hope you enjoyed the tea and now, please get out; I have blogging to do.
Bragging rights
I can make you laugh. Guaranteed.

These are a couple of books from a little series I'm working on. Dante Light. These are both available for purchase right now if you want. the idea is to color each book a primary color of light. So the third and final book will be...well, let's see if you can figure it out. I should have a video up introducing the series and what it's about in greater detail.
