Erik's Twitter. Hell help y'all. The Kingdom of Heaven is finally both digital and paperback. And incidentally, if you want some really rare and strange and obscure and magnificent Darkish music, like demos and other (cough) interesting material, check out Dark Circle Room.  Scroll down and look right and you will find the unbelievable list of bands. I hope you're all having wonderful surprises, dears.

The Kingdom of Heaven

The Kingdom of Heaven

Hello, dears. I realized while slogging through the Hero's Torch edit that The Kingdom of Heaven was pretty much ready to publish, and it was kind of ridiculous of me not to do so.  I could not resist Easter being on 4/20 (Stoner Day, Columbine Day, and Hitler's birthday, as well as Jesus' traditionally accepted...deathday?) So the digital version went live today: Kindle Currently set at 2.99, but I'm fighting with them to drop it to 0.99 as soon as possible. Smashwords (Here you can set your own price, including for free) Paperback coming in a week or two.  I'm hoping for Walpurgisnacht, with my weird fixation on significant dates, bu

Devious Journal Entry

Today I saw a monster. I'm driving to the grocery store at midnight, migraine-crippled with nothing in the house to take for it. Six hours of unwanted nap did not deter this bastard headache, so I'm driving with it, because living with it is not a fucking option. And then I see it.   Grayblack, lithe and graceful and as tall as a house with many long gorgeous limbs and massive yellow eyes, loping along to my right on the side of the road. It's looking in at me, curiously, keeping pace with me at forty-five miles an hour without even trying. I slam on the brakes and I'm thinking FINALLY and Molly from The Last Unicorn is in my throat, Where

I'd like to donate too, but I'm not sure how to. Maybe I'm missing the button because I'm on my phone? I'd love to contribute to the book effort, though. :heart:

I took the donation button down because I'm completely, and at this point violently anti-Paypal.   But if you want to contribute, buy an ebook and write a review here:

The review in particular would be very helpful.   And thank you, dear.
RunawayKidStudent General Artist
Oh, I see. I'll try my best to write a review!

:heart: It's no problem at all.

Those are VERY very important at this early stage of what I hope becomes a firefight.    I refuse to set up fake identities and leave them myself.  Once again, I won't cheat y'all in any way, or permit anyone else to do so.   It doesn't have to be an AP essay, just honest, and yes, if it's not five stars, that's okay too, just honest.    What you liked, what you didn't, why you think someone else might like to read it.    

On Amazon in particular---the more and better reviews, the more they will promote me without my having to PAY anything, and they will also discount the book WITHOUT it cutting into my royalties---meaning, they'll take the hit, not me.

I still really don't do this for money, but if one day I could manage the trifling money I make working fulltime at a job I loathe, I could STOP that, and make evil for y'all so much faster.

Promised I would donate, and I did! Thought thirty dollars wont quite show you the appreciation I have for your work. I still remember when I stumbled on it years ago, and will never read anything quite like it again. I don't think I've thanked you for sharing, so it's my thanks in it's entirety.
thenineteenProfessional Writer
Thank you, dear (hug) It's definitely very helpful.

At the moment I'm making life changes while waiting for beta readers to do what beta readers do. I'm tired of not writing, and the backlog in my head is getting excruciating.
VoltielHobbyist Writer
I know how that is, in a way.
Kind of like drinking too much and wanting to write,
and yet everything you write is terrible.
Okay. Maybe not entirely alike, haha.
