Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

-Oscar Wilde

Selfishness must always be forgiven you know, because there is no hope of a cure.

-Jane Austen

Paperback Writer

For any who are interested, paperback copies of the Wilde Love series are now available for $7.99US. They will remain there for at least the month of January, and if they do well there, I might leave them low–and release future paperbacks at that price as well.

Createspace makes high quality books in my experience, but they don’t come cheap, and I’m not ever going to be able to match those fabulous mass-market prices you can get on paperbacks in stores. Still, LGBTQIA+ paperbacks are usually prohibitively expensive–who can afford to buy a series when each book is $18? As a reader, I would like to see some more affordable paperbacks out there, so I figured that since I can control my prices, I ought to try being the change.

School’s Out Forever…

This author is finally, finally finished with her bachelor’s degree.

Yes, I’m much closer to 40 than 22. It’s late for anyone to be graduating college, and sometimes I feel incredibly self-conscious about the fact that both my AA and my bachelor’s were earned after the age of 30.  But you know what? I did it.

I went back to college in my late 20s, and finally, over many years working half time and sometimes even less, I finished school. I won’t be applying to any MFA programs, and I certainly don’t want a doctorate in English, so this is it for me.

I’d say this is dedicated to the stepfather who told me I’d never make anything of myself, but it’s not. It’s dedicated to Mr. Burns, who has supported me through everything, despite his misgivings about the insane cost of college today. In the end, he knew it was something I had to do for myself. And you know what? It’s totally dedicated to me. You finally did it, nerd.

Quote of the Week

Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.

-Oscar Wilde
