Pinned toot

Hello! M name is Colleen, and I've been meaning to join this instance for a while now!

I am mostly a scriptwriter, working on visual novels for Studio Lupiesoft. (If you follow indie games on birdsite you may have heard of us recently but that's for later.) Check us out here at (link warning, many of the games are adult in nature)

Thing my mom wrote in her most recent email: Too much reality isn’t healthy!

Amen, Mom.

Black magic, secret libraries, and small town charm in a city of the dead. A necromancer’s daughter stands against family and friends to defend a young historian from the world above.

BOOKS AND BONE is a librarians-and-necromancy fantasy currently looking for backers on #kickstarter.

Thanks to the generosity and kindness of so many people it's closer to becoming real, but I could still really use your help if you wouldn't mind taking a look.
