Mystic is HERE!

Mystic is HERE!

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

It’s a book release day! Or rather, a relaunch day. But that’s still cause for celebration. Which I feel like I, personally, need right now.

So this right here is the first-ever printed copy of my novel Mystic. It’s the second book in the Nightblade Epic, the series that enabled me to become a full-time author.

So You Gave Donald A Chance.

So You Gave Donald A Chance.

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

So are we done giving Donald a chance yet?

In the lead-up to the election, speaking—or, let’s be honest, arguing—with people who I’d thought were relatively clear-headed and intelligent up to that point, “give him a chance” was a common refrain.

The other was that despite the fact that he said he wanted to do criminal things, and despite the fact that they believed him, they didn’t think he’d actually be able to do so because the Constitution wouldn’t let him.

Because yeah. Let’s vote for someone who wants to do evil things because we think he won’t be able to do so. That just makes … so much sense.

Diverse Storytelling IS Good Storytelling

Diverse Storytelling IS Good Storytelling

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

So if you know me, you know that I’m all about the diversity in the writing and the publishing.

But this being the internet, a lot of people are NOT into the diversity. They think that including diverse characters and voices from diverse storytellers is censorship. Somehow.

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.
