Netiquette reminders:

  • Want to recommend someone else’s writing instead? Try the latest signal-boosting thread.
  • we expect Content Notes as a courtesy to our readers for problematic content in linked posts and/or their comment threads (a habit of posting only triggering/disparaging links may annoy the Giraffe (you really don’t want to annoy the Giraffe)), Content Notes are not needed if your post title is already descriptive of problematic content.
  • extended discussion of self-promotion links on this thread is counter-productive for the intended signal-boosting –  the idea is for the promoted sites to get more traffic.  If it’s a side-discussion that would be off-topic/unwelcome/distressing on the other site, take it to #spillover after leaving a note on this thread redirecting others there.

    Hi Everyone. If you get an opportunity please check out my latest release ” Murder Seen Through the Eyes of a Child”. You can Find it at, , Amazon or any of your online stores. Here is a blurp of the book below:

    Murder Seen through the Eyes of a Child is a story about three young boys growing up, and getting into all kinds of mischief as they watch and witness a terrible tragedy unfold. They live in a time period when corruption is rampant in law enforcement and corporations. These individuals will resort to almost anything to fatten their banks accounts even if that means destroying people and the land they own to achieve their goals

    Why do you think the ‘Net was hatched?
    Cats! Cats! Cats!

    Inspired by the Ellen Pao lawsuit and the jury’s inability to recognize a pattern of subtle sexism, I look at some of my own experience and discussed looking at statements that may be sexist and asking, would you say that to a man?

    On dealing with a crisis of confidence

    Need Beta readers for four books. No pay, but a nice nod in the acknowledgements and a free book.

    Five Influences Friday takes on Alive on the Inside. This is an evil carnival story, so all relevant warnings about body horror.

    And I was privileged to help perform a wedding for a friend, as well as accomplish other things.

    Female Anger: A Taboo

    My latest post from a campaign project I’ve been putting together (website is under construction). Any and all critiques are welcome and appreciated.
