My favourite new review says that I am 'proof that our education system is failing'. If you too enjoy 'unadulterated rubbish', check out .

I took today’s pic in the kitchen. Because reasons. I’m reading an ARC off Last Liar Standing by @DanielleMWong@twitter. And the @Moma@twitter oat milk came out extra frothy today, so I dressed the coffee like a cappuccino.

What are you drinking and reading?

The marriage-splainers are really quite something.

Anyways, I should do some more writing.

Over on the other site, I've got people patiently explaining how marriage works to me. Because apparently @XtalDave and I are doing it wrong.

Anyways, might hang out here for a while instead.

Happy Tuesday! For today’s , I’m reading Fractured Orbits by @JeannetteB4000@twitter. And my coffee is from @CoaltownCoffee@instagram roasters.

A general PSA: if you keep wanting to cut off your toxic family, and you're in a position where you're able to: you can, and you should. You are NOT a bad person for doing it, you deserve love and safety.

Pssst! Get your free and discounted science fiction.

The world was never enough, was it? These books dare to take you to the far off and different, even if it's still on Earth sometimes.

Someone tripped over a dog this morning while out for a walk and landed on her hand on the pavement.

I cleaned the wound and slathered it in ibuprofen gel. I’ve got my hand on an ice pack now. But it’s starting to swell up. Really convenient for work.

Had an interesting start to a conversation yesterday about Mastodon servers, and the driving philosophy under them.

And how you're either aiming to create a service or a community, and how these actually have different motivations and requirements.

And I thought that was interesting.

This little dude declined to take his anxiety meds last night. As a consequence, he has a rough night (and therefore so did I.

How’s your morning going?

How about some Sunday afternoon ? I’m reading an ARC of Red Pandemonium by Roan Rosser. And I made my own coffee all by myself using beans from Union Roasted.

I'll always get a laugh out of how many authors push the narrative that Amazon is the only place people buy books. It's patently false in so many ways.

My book released today? 17% of the pre-orders were on Amazon.

The rest were from other ebook stores and 65% of them were paperback pre-orders.

So whenever tells you Amazon has 70-80% of the book market, feel free to challenge that narrative and explore for yourself.

I guess I'll throw out an as well. I've had this account for the better part of 4 years as a hedge :)

I write science fiction
I live in Denver, CO
I have 1 dog, Paco
I have 1 wife, Nicole
I have 1 garden, nameless

My stories are inclusive, and a blast to read (So I'm told).
