Thanks, Obama.

Thanks, Obama.

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

Well, I guess we should talk about the fact that today is the last full day of Barack Obama’s Presidency.

Obama’s first election was the first election I paid much attention to, though I didn’t vote in it.

I was 22 years old, and still very much in that “I’m too cool to believe that voting actually matters,” phase of my life.

#OscarsSoWhite: What’s the Big Deal?

Hello Rebels, and welcome back to my life.

Before we get started, I want to say that my voice is not the most important one in this conversation. At all.

I believe that being a good ally against injustice means amplifying the voices of those who suffer that injustice, and not speaking for them.

I’ve put links in the description to people I think you should be following on Twitter who talk about this stuff all the time. I learn from them every day. Please follow them and just, please, LISTEN to them. All right? Okay.

Traditional Publishing Perils

Traditional Publishing Perils

Hello Rebels, and welcome back to my life. So I’d like to do a little bit of a follow-up to my last video by talking about traditional publishing.

When I started writing, it was because I was listening to the Self-Publishing Podcast, and so it might not be a huge surprise that I decided to publish as an indie.

I didn’t want to go through the process of finding an agent and maybe or maybe not being accepted by a publisher, and waiting years for my book to come out. That’s just not how I like to roll.
