Open Platform For Readers

You know, with everything happening, I realized something. It seems the most people with input, the ones with the biggest voices, are the authors and the reviewers (the “professional” reviewers). But there’s a voice missing. How about just you readers? Would you like a platform to write a blog post? When I purchased this blog,(…)

Foot-In-Mouth Disease

I’ve tried for days to move past my emotional reaction to things that have happened recently in the m/m community. I’ve thought a lot about feelings and how anger bubbles forth and breaks down communications. Rather than write in anger, I thought I’d post a story of my own humiliation. It is not a good(…)

7th and Final Revision–Available Now Everywhere

EDIT ADD’L INFO: According to another site ( a commenter here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1513602&postcount=3) says that if there is no “update” option available, you can email directly to amazon and ask them for an updated version of the book. I had no idea they didn’t allow that already >8(. What a hassle. And since the edits are minor,(…)

Retreat

I am not one of those people at all comfortable in telling people about their personal problems. But I think, in this case, I’m going to have to mention it just to allay some of the fear that comes from what I’m going to say. I need a few days away from blogs and comments(…)

What an Author Should Expect

As I started to type a new post about reviews and how authors should look at them like cheese, but with what’s going on in the m/m community, I just couldn’t make light-hearted post. I am probably going to get a lot of people who hate me after this-both authors and readers, but I just(…)

New Editions of Shattered Glass

Today I uploaded new copies of Shattered Glass to Allromanceebooks.com. Those editions are there now. By Sunday afternoon there should be a new edition up on Amazon as well (they take longer to fix a new edition). I hope these editions fix some of the formatting issues as well as most of the editing problems.(…)

An Open Letter to Reviewers and Readers

Dear Reviewers, Here’s the problem with self-publishing: I’ll get lumped in crap piles of well, CRAP. Crappy authors doing crappy crap and crapping in my yard on top of my book. This is definitely not all self-pubbed authors. But lately, all I see is crappy authors doing crappy things and crapp… you get my point.(…)
