I’m alive! And where I’ve been.

Hoooo man, these past two months have been...a lot. There was a lot of good. And a lot of bad. Terrifying and weird and wonderful. And at times, a tid bit horrifying.

The Importance of “Nah Bro.”

Obvious statement the first: I am a millennial. Obvious statement the second: I am poor as fuck. Obvious statement the third: Saying no to things is the hardest thing there is.

Vanity Hells, Media Crashes, and A Whole Lot Of Gay Werewolves; or How I became an editor

So, here’s a weird thing--I’ve been pessimistic probably since I could walk. (Realistic, thank you very much.)

Weekend Writing: male queer in adult fiction

When I was a kid, male gay characters in fiction did not exist. And when they did, they were all very much the same.
