Hey everyone! I'm working at a publishing house these days. One that focuses on genre fiction, particularly the surreal, speculative, fantastic, etc. It's called the Metaphysical Circus Press and I'm one of the novel editors. So, seeing as how I know there's a fantastic literary community here, I figured I'd leave a link for you guys to take advantage of if you're looking for a press that provides free, continuous marketing and a larger author percentage of profits than just about anywhere. I hope to see some of you there soon!

-Your faithful Paladin

Journal History


ThePaladinofShadows's Profile Picture
United States
Hey everybody. I'm just a transplanted Bostonian trying to get by in Richmond, VA. I'm openly delusional but those delusions are of grandeur. My best friends are mostly books, I ask too many questions, and I enjoy conversations with strangers. My profile pic was taken at Longfellow's House in Cambridge. And, as I'm sure you've figured out if you've bothered to read this far down my page, I'm a poet. I'm also a hopeless romantic. That's pretty much the low-down. Hope you enjoy my poetry! Have a nice day!

(EDIT: Poetry has been archived pursuant to publication aims. If you want to read anything, just let me know! I can always use readers.)

Current Residence: hiding behind a mound of dead bards
Favourite genre of music: classic rock, goth, metal, industrial, steampunk... equally.
Favourite photographer: Gerry Uelsman, Antram444
Favourite cartoon character: Wile E. Coyote
Personal Quote: You can always tell which lemons are stolen. They taste like shame and chocolate.

Hey!!! How are you?? I've just gotten on again here and I'm enjoying myself. :) I miss you.

Hey! Long time, no chat. I've been well. Still doing the university thing, working in the English department, writing like a fiend. Might intern at a publishing house soon. How about you? Life treating you well?

It's... honestly not been great, but at the same time revelatory. I'm studying poetry this year at uni myself. :)

Also, thanks for the favorite!

Well, what's been not so great? It's cool to hear that you're making a study of poetry... though I might be a little biased! :XD:

Anytime! It was a really cool pic.

:hug: hi how are you?
ThePaladinofShadows Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014
Hullo! :hug: 

I'm doing quite well. Got my nose to the grindstone at the moment, but they're great classes this time around, so I don't mind a bit.

How have you been?
WargusEstor Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Things have gone up and down for me. I lost my father in May, he had a brain haemorrhage. At least he didn't suffer and we got to say goodbye. I miss him terribly.
ThePaladinofShadows Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2014
I'm very sorry to hear that, though it's good to hear that he passed without suffering. That's about all we can ask for in such situations; losing family members, especially immediate ones, is still incredibly difficult, however, and does stay with you for a long time. If you need an ear, you know where to find me!
