I am the problem.
I am the problem.

Due to a combination of Google destroying the platform and constantly getting attacked for having any sort of opinion, I'm leaving Google+. I'm tired of the trolls, and, oddly, I've found that Facebook's security controls, when properly applied, keep that shit from happening - even on public posts.

I might be able to make some changes here to get to something similar, but I'm not going to because, as I've said many times before, this service is now garbage. I don't think much more of Facebook, but it is currently doing well in places where Google+ is failing... like finding new voices, and having more women participating. There are so many more women who I interact with on Facebook, it's almost painful how obvious Google+ is disliked by women and how much of a sausage party our communities are.

I'm not going to pretend I don't know why, because I do. It's been the cause of countless anxiety attacks, fight or flight responses, days when I just couldn't do anything, days when I just had to turn everything off to get anything done. I'm sick and tired of having everything I say be dissected by some male nerd who has to loudly proclaim I'm wrong, tell me how bad the things I do are, and follow it up with a 'why you mad?' sentiment.

If you want to find me, look on Facebook. If you want to keep getting +ConTessa updates, follow the page. I've given this place too much of my time and energy as it is, and I've found this year I have absolutely zero tolerance for people who just want to drag others down - especially me. My brain does a good enough job telling me I'm not good enough. I don't need anyone else helping matters.

So here's my swan song, Google+. I will miss my friends that don't find me on Facebook (, but I will not miss the constant attacks, stalker-like behavior, and trolling. Not in the least bit.

So far, we've earned $4,200 after OBS's fees. At $5,000 we'll have completely funded Gen Con, and every other bit of fundraising we do goes to other conventions and getting a head start for next year.

I'll be shutting this off at around 9PM tonight Pacific (or when I go to bed, which will be before midnight because what can I say, I'm old), so that's about eight hours left for folks to pick up this bundle.

That's 37 books for $10, including an exclusive PDF of Fire on the Velvet Horizon. Tell your friends, tell your friends friends, tell the world! Only 8 hours left before this incredible bundle disappears!
FINAL DAY: After today, the ConTessa 2017 Bundle of Awesome will be no more! This is your LAST CHANCE to get 37 titles for just $10!
