storytime

i decided to be a novelist.
i was sure
i would be famous
by my 20’s.
at 28
i rediscovered my love
of writing comics
i was no longer so sure
i would be
famous
but at least
i would be having a good time
at 50
i finally published my first book
followed by another
before i turn
51.
first a book of comics
then a book of short stories
next
a novel?
a collection of art?
it seems
i finally
have
my momentum.

buy my book of comics–“confusion perfume”–the story of a single woman & her dog (not cathy) as well as a sampling of other neurotic comics.
buy my book of short stories & flash fiction–tangled together–stuff i have been working on (or hiding in a trunk) for the past 30 years.
write me kind reviews & wait with bated breath for my next literary contribution.

hot off the press!

as of today you can buy my book tangled together from a few different places!
this is a collection of short stories and flash fiction i have been writing over the past thirty-ish years.
the stories range from dark to quirky (sometimes both) and are a good reflection of just how my mind works as well as sometimes being more memoir than fiction being that i often use my writing to exorcise those pesky demons.
also! pictures!! i did an inking per story.


if you want an autographed copy, message me (quixoticmama@gmail.com)…otherwise! pick a vendor 🙂

look mom, i’m a writer

“writing is a nice hobby,” they told me. “but what are you really going to do with your life?”

sadly, both my parents are dead, and i am unable to rub it in their faces that i have finally started publishing books….
i’m a late bloomer.
that or it took me 30 years to realize, “nope, this is what i am going to do. fuck real life.”
so!
confusion perfume & other neurotic comics has been published by tara caribou’s raw earth ink publishing as of last year & is available through amazon…or contact me for an autographed copy.
and now tara is tackling my collection of short stories, tangled together, that is flash fiction & short stories spanning the 30 years of my being a short story writer (before which i wrote novels)….
so exciting!
i will totally keep y’all updated!

a moment of zen optimism??
in the spirit of optimism and a moment of “wow, look what i did” …i went to put my book confusion perfume and other neurotic comic (holiday gift idea!!) over on goodreads. i got an email that my listing was approved and went to check it out, only to find i have THREE books on goodreads. what? totally makes me feel like a real writer….

contact me for an autographed copy

i’m nanowrimo-ing

or trying to, at least
i’m working on two different projects
which has me working on stories
everyday
so, yay!
but no worries
i am still journaling
but need to get to inking
as well so i can post something
however
thoughts keep falling out of my head
before i can commit them to paper
you know how it goes
you think there is no way
you will forget something
& then it is gone.

but! until i can get some journal pages done, i will just go ahead & remind y’all that i did write a book and i do have a box of them sitting in my office waiting to be autographed & mailed to you!
you can paypal me…write me a check…mail me some cash…whatever gets this book in the mail to you.
if you need it, my email is quixoticmamama@gmail.com

show of hands…

okay. so tara caribou is in the final stages of publishing my book confusion perfume & other neurotic comics.
she wants me to come up with a number of books i should have on hand should anyone want to order a signed copy.
so, show of hands, who is thinking they would want to order a signed copy of my book as opposed to just getting the regular copy (because, of course, i am sure you are all going to run right out (to your local internet) and get a copy of my first book…right?
i don’t want to end up just using a box of books to build forts with in my office on those days–you know those days–when only a blanket fort weighted down with all the extra copies of your first book will do….
plus i get kinda fire-happy when i am feeling depressed…so, i really don’t want any fodder for whatever random cleansing i decide to do in a moment of “clarity”….
anyhoo…anyone want a signed copy of my book? due out october 1st (the blood moon, y’all.)
