Blog Change News!

Don’t worry, I’m not abandoning this blog. I’m gonna keep this blog as official book news, but I’m going to be switching most “personal” updates to another blog that more closely follows my “brand” (which is a term I hate using. I’m a person, not a product!) and I’m going to link that to my facebook page as well.
The new blog will be and it will have more of my day-to-day and not-book-related news, like the occasional cat picture and other weird life updates like I’ve posted to this blog for so long.
This blog will not die. I will still strive to post at least one new update per month. However, until about May this blog may be a bit slow and the updates may be a bit… short. But that’s mostly because I’ve got five months to finish three different books, so I may or may not say screw it to updating the blog in favor of keeping my sanity.
That’s why I’ll point you to my other social media, most if which I do update fairly regularly, which I should honestly have a tab for but I’m just that lazy.

Dear Writers of the World

Writers, could you please just be excited that people are writing fanfiction of your creations? Please?
I still have the fanarts that my dear friend Alfie drew from one of my series. I cherish it. (even if one was a joke stick figure)
Fan creations are something to celebrate, not to get bitchy about! So what if they reject your ending and substitute it with their own. So. Fucking. What. At least your story is getting exposure. Because the more fanworks that exist, the more people those fanworks have the potential to reach. 
If you wanted to continue the story, then you should. Otherwise don’t act like a whiny little spoiled brat who decides that if they can’t control every little thing they’ll just take their toys and go home. That’s not how the world works, especially not when it comes to books.
