A series of fortunate events
Red Cape and the Happily Ever After out now!
I’ve just posted my third short story on a timed exclusive schedule on my Patreon page. For the same price as the Gumroad release, which will be available on Friday, you can get the story and all the concept art that I commissioned for its release. The artwork is by LeoDamage.
So today is the day. It had been announced for a while but Twitter finally got around to adding another 140 characters to its character limit, meaning that tweets can now be 280 characters long. Instinctively this just feels wrong. People who use the longer limit feel like they are on a soapbox
One of my favourite ideas from Buddhism is that of karma. We think of it as justice – everyone gets what they deserve – but real karma isn’t that instant. I believe it’s more about shaping your next life. However the idea that if you are loving, love will comeback to you seems to be working for me lately.

Happy birthday to Blog! Happy birthday to Blog. Read on for a boring account of my first year blogging here.
I know this is a bit late but here’s my reaction to The Last Jedi trailer and my thoughts for the Star Wars trilogy.
I’d finally sold a piece of writing. Someone had voluntarily, as far as I am aware, handed over money to read what I had written. Sure, it’s only a dollar but it qualifies and makes me an official selling author. I contacted the customer straight away and said thanks.
I started using Gumroad today and I put one of my favourite short stories up for sale, along with the awesome cover art I had commissioned for it without even knowing if I would use it.
Today I invaded a sports day at the local elementary school, because I could, and mainly because I’m friends with a mother or two. I haven’t been to one since I was at school and although they do them right through to senior high school here, and virtually unchanged in program, it was still fresh to me, since it had been so long.
So since I got my tooth extracted I’ve had some medicine to prevent germs and some painkillers. As I said before the pain isn’t that bad, it’s more like a niggling feeling than actual pain, but sometimes the psychological effect of it is constant and exhausting. So I decided to take some of the painkillers. They helped.
