Tagged by Lisa Stapleton again. The amazing author of Soul Echo: Discovery.
I’m betaing Wild Ones by Louise Czarnobai right now and this book is so good. I’m so happy to be reading it. I’m a great one to have around though for comments like these. For real.
Keep up the good work, Louise.
Being an author is hard. Cause some days you just wanna NaNo but then you have to schedule like 400 days worth of promotional posts, beta a book, look for a PA, and summon the devil to keep your sick ass awake to do all this shit.

Just a quick about me with gifs! Haha. Enjoy everyone. I love being tagged in stuff.
DC or Marvel:
In light of recent events I would like to set the record straight:
I just wanna say this because there seems to have been some confusion: I am not straight and I don’t write gay books because it’s “what sells”.
I’m writing gay books because it’s what I wanted when I was first coming out in the middle of the deep South. There wasn’t much representation for me there and for most of my life, I felt like an outcast.
I don’t want today’s LGBT teens to feel the same way I did.
I legit have no idea where people are getting the idea that I’m straight. Like wtf?? It says clearly in my Twitter/Tumblr bio that I’m not.
Ignore the fact that I’m dating a guy.
I have also dated women.
I shouldn’t even have to justify this, but here I am.
Friends who don’t read: I don’t understand. Why would people hate you because of your writing?
Friends who do read: I FUCKING HATE YOU. YOU’RE A MONSTER. WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT?
Friends who write: Recently I started getting death threats for my latest novel. I’ve reached the big time. I have become one of the top authors in the world. This is my big break.
