Get ’em while they’re cheap

I will be raising the prices on my short stories. So… If you want them while they are still a dollar, go download them! Also, reviews to feed the author (not literally, but I’ll be ever so grateful…) are always appreciated. Think of it as tipping the artist.

I am an artist.

Books are forever!`
My other art washes off at the end of the day.

You have no idea how hard it was for me to come to that conclusion. Not only in words, but it actual paint. I’ve been a professional face and body artist for 7 years now, and I didn’t consider myself an artist until very recently because I didn’t think I was creative enough. It took outside persuasion before I was ready to admit that maybe I truly am an artist. I’m also beginning to create the art for my book covers, completing the connection.

With my writing, however, I have always felt creative. Nothing is truly original, there are always influences on our work, but I try to avoid obvious derivations. The stories I write, though, they feel like they didn’t come from me, but rather from the characters who I catch a glimpse of in an alternate universe… Any wonder I love RAH’s Number of the Beast so?

But I ramble, the point of this was to say, I have been undervaluing my art. I’ve been nudged by people I lave and respect to think more highly of my work, and I am going to do so. It will take a day or so before the changes take effect, letting you, my reader, have the chance to pick them up at bargain prices.

Let me know what you think of them. I’m proud of ’em.
