April 2015 Lootcrate

     This months Lootcrate was so cool. t-shirt, drives, ties, and cards to play with. When I got the box I thought it was really small and it must just have a bunch of pins or something. No, this small package was full of big fun.

Again, as always the box was really cool.

Now, I finally have a bow tie and it's a RPG one with dragons on it. Now just to lose some weight so I don't like like a fat Pee Wee Herman wearing it.

Holy Stark sigil !!!

This is really cool.

See what I mean, awesome.
And Mar grabbed it right away.

And here comes some Princess Bride greatness with this deck of cards. One of my all time favorite movies.

And the crown goes to.

I've never played D&D but I love this shirt.

Mar put in her claim to this Harry Potter luggage tag right off.

And more Game Of Thrones fun with some magnets.

These Books They

I don’t really read much realistic fiction. I like to escape, I need to escape, but there are some writers I am right there ready to take part in their creations when they appear such as Laurie  Halse Anderson, Nova Ren Suma, and Courtney Summers to name a few. The reason these writers stand out in my mind? Others are squeak hammers; these three are those climbing ones that would go straight through your skull. I’m thinking about this as I’m reading All The Rage by Courtney Summers sitting in the library after work. If I’m going to read realistic fiction I don’t need no after school special rated for the age group and time slot, which is usually before school even lets out. I want; I need to feel scratchy, played, twisted, punched in the face to pay attention, called to think, and questioned about myself and the world, by myself and the world. I love writers, artists who have no interest in me being comfortable, except when they are playing with my little bitty brain holder. Love when a book can make you have to put it down for a bit so you can think, because dammit you really need to think on this. Art that crawls under your skin and you see the pages as an elastic gift which flips between the eyes we need and this is where powerful art lives. So I’m going to sit here and read more. Sometimes I look up and wonder why the world around me isn’t noticing what’s going on? Can’t they see? Don’t they feel what’s going on here?

Tin Universe Monthly #6 Hits 505 Total Downloads On Smashwords

 It started out as my first YA book, well, my first book period really, and one of the first things I ever wrote that didn't make me want to throw up for days after releasing. The first time I felt like a writer. The Past Forward would later be inserted as part of and given away free as Tin Universe Monthly #6. I learned so much writing this sixth Tin Universe story.
     I've learned to stop checking my stats too much at Smashwords and the other places people can get my stories; so I was surprised yesterday while I was out with Mar Geocaching and buying stuff to make deviled egss for Daredevil watching when I saw Tin Universe Monthly #6 had hit the 505 Download mark on Smashwords.
     I thought that was cool.
     Now for some binge watching.
In this book for the most part you will find people saying things like: “I’m old enough to make my own underwear choices.” And “Can I kick your ass and it be ok if the ERA passes? I’m a supporter if you say yes.” And probably way too many pop culture references. Anything else on the high or low brow measure is highly due to delusions of grandeur on the part of the writer.
