foolish mistakes, but whatever, they are all mine.
Mostly-cis, fat ,middle aged, bisexual, disabled, white femme. My hobby is seeing how many years I can add to my collection before I die.

Posting will be random but may contain fat acceptance, wool, and cats, lagomorphs and corvids in no particular order. Posting may also be sporadic as I have ME/CFS and a bunch of other stuff that makes me tired and some times crabby.

Book Launch: Brown Bread Boys, A Tragedy

The King is dead: long live the King. Or so the echoes suggest. But Craig Williamson has barely murdered his way to total dominance of his London crime family when already his lieutenants are plotting against him: not greedy, just concerned. Or so they say.
One thing is for sure: whoever wins, it’s bad news for the police, who still don’t know how to prosecute or even properly investigate the gruesome, ancient blood magic used by the gun…
…even the gang themselves don’t fully understand it.

Brown Bread, Boys is available to buy in print from Amazon or Lulu, as a variety of eBook formats from Lulu (and a few other places), and as a Kindle .mobi from Amazon (UK | US) – there’s almost no end of ways you can pick up and devour this story. Except by literally picking it up and eating it, because that is a bad way to read a book.

Buy this book and read it, it is great.

i am a decent writer and you should buy my book because you will either enjoy reading it or enjoy telling me i’m wrong, and either way you will enjoy yourself. fact. science fact.

Books may not change our suffering, books may not protect us from evil, books may not tell us what is good or what is beautiful, and they will certainly not shield us from the common fate of the grave. But books grant us myriad possibilities: the possibility of change, the possibility of illumination.

I have not read most of the big 19th—century novels that people consider “essential,” nor most of the 20th-century ones for that matter. But this does not embarrass me. There are many films to see, many friends to visit, many walks to take, many playlists to assemble and many favorite books to reread. Life’s too short for anxious score-keeping. Also, my grandmother is illiterate, and she’s one of the best people I know. Reading is a deep personal consolation for me, but other things console, too.

In response to the question, “What books are you embarrassed not to have read yet?” 

I am so glad for this answer. I tire of "but did you read [insert cishet White man with anti-intersectional perspectives and White Savior Industrial Complex]" bla bla or “did you read [insert cishet White woman with book deemed ‘revolutionary’ for ‘all women’]” yet it speaks nothing to my life at all.

Over it. Read what you want.

this is so great

this forever, i want to dismantle any preconceptions about a canon and let people read/watch/listen to (or even not) anything they want to. fuck snobbery.

(via extraterrible)

I love this so very much and I am speaking as one who loves reading with a passion. Life is not score keeping, there is no prize for getting the most ticks on a list. Other than ‘be compassionate and decent to yourself and others’ there are no rules, which is both scary and wonderful.

Unashamed plug for my lovely friend

My friend Andrew Hickey is a software engineer, musician and writer. After many years of writing for an online audience for free, he’s decided to try his hand at doing the same thing but for money, because even writers need to eat.

He writes funny and wise short stories, books about music, comics and Dr Who. You should totally go check his work out and if you like it, buy some!

JANE EYRE: Holy crap Mr Rochester’s bed is on fire! Don’t worry my cranky little damsel in distress! I will save you!
MR ROCHESTER: Jane, I am saved! Hold me!
JANE EYRE: We’d better find out who the arsonist is.
MR ROCHESTER: Jane, Jane, Jane. Why does it always have to be about ‘who the arsonist…

Well, this made me lol.
