All my online books have been deactivated, except for the Crimson Darkside Moon poetry book. The cartoons books are still posted to the online cartoon journal, but the books for sale are not online for sale. It costs a great deal of attention and fees to keep these things self-published and in print, and the latest sales were not worth the fees. In addition, some people were miss-understanding and miss-interpreting the content extremely wildly. They were getting the meaning of the jokes very wrong, and taking the pun jokes about Halloween WAY too seriously. After this they were posting mean criticism comments online. This is the dark-side of the ease of modern Internet publishing, it is easy to publish. Yet it is easy for all the wrong people to read and comment on your work, and I am not in a place where I can deal with that drama right now.
My author links are still available online at Amazon here:
Oddly, the thing I will miss most about leaving Austin, will be being more-far away from New Orleans at Mardi Gras. I went to school in New Orleans, LA for many years and had many apartments there downtown. I got used to the tourists and noise for three months all around Mardi Gras. It is pretty much amazing I got any homework done the spring semester of University, with drums and torches right outside my window. Austin, TX is only seven hours away by car. I could make a quick visit a few times per year to see old friends. Virginia is more-so far away, and a move there means more letting go of the old days. Oh well, thanks to the Internet you can still keep a bit in touch.
Re-Confirmed: My mom and I are moving to Virginia May 15, 2015. Mom has moved the travel date up by 1 year as of Saturday. We are going to stay for three years before moving back to Austin. My sister is stuck there due to a custody battle in a divorce, and her child is sick so we need to go there to watch him. We were going to go in a year, but the situation with her child needing care has become very serious.
I am NOT gay! For like 2 seconds when I was 18 I dated girls. Older gay women – stop hitting on me at school there are dating sites for that stuff. I have been getting really aggressive come-ons online and at school. If I was into that I would have a dating site for it, seriously!

50 Shades the movie may suck, but the musical about a dunken suburban book club reading the book is pretty funny. 50 Shades the Parody Musical http://buff.ly/16W5anZ
Just what breed of suburban woman made this book popular?
I’m not trying to go on a female-rant, but many journalists have noticed odd trends with the female pay. If and when they can get a job like a man’s it is not for the same pay.
Okay, I will not go into the “Woman Hear Me Roar” rant. We earn less when young, but can earn money later. Women can complain and earn later as we work and live many-many-many years longer on average compared to men, well if we are lucky.
Men may be able to lift, have muscle mass, run fast, and move inventory super fast when young and filled with testosterone, yet it will crush their hearts as they get older.
