Father's Day

Or, as I would call it in the Amalgam Station Universe, Secpa's Day.

Since the household Secpa is asleep, and so are the kids, I get a little time to blog.

Economically, I'm not doing fantastic. I spent $15 out of my New Compy fund [to support Chaos' school], and only saved $5 this week. So now I'm $20 away from having $300 in cash.

Sigh.

I have $30 in my PayPal, $12 held by Smashwords, and almost $500 in my Dreams account. If I could magically get all of that, today, I'd have a little over $800 all up. Nearly a third of the way there.

Except it takes a week to save one hundred dollars if I'm good, and longer if I'm not. Things like clothes and food and school necessities take from that.

I've stopped buying vinyl because I need a new compy. I've stopped getting little treats for myself because I need a new compy. I'm battling a constant state of ennui that could lead into a depression spiral because... need a new compy.

I'll post a memorium when this compy dies. And I will be using the pic I just took of my workspace that's going to be on my Patreon this week.

And today... I am braving up and advertising everything I've written that could potentially make me any kind of scratch. Because I need a new compy.

I expect a full-blown anxiety episode by the evening. Which I will quell by working on cover art for Beauties and the Beastly. Progress will be posted on Patreon along with blather about the process.

I... need a lot of money.

But just for now, I'm going to wake up the little darlings so they can wake up their Secpa and present Beloved with presents.

We're muddling...

We're scraping by. We're pulling our heads in...

And managing to maintain the little treats that keep us sane.

Of course, it's a struggle that would be made easier by some funding by you, dear reader, but we're managing.

I kind of feel like we're dangling over a precipice by my fingernails, but that's probably me.

The big needs are waiting for another pay cycle. The Wants are in stasis. Not coming to fruition for the foreseeable future.

And I'm in a

Hello darkness my old friend…

Once again insomnia hits like a goddamn truck. Beloved has come home but not come to bed.

More work is happening on my site.

It hurts to lie in bed. It will hurt to get up. I know this because the soles of my feet ache, even now. And it’s cold beyond the doona.

It’s going to be a long and spoonless day. Please go to my Smashwords page:

YOOOOOOO!

This just in: Beloved is amazing.

I had a little baby breakdown about the impossibility of trying to break through the glass box that noob authors like me are stuck in. It involved lots of handflaps and raspberries if you’re interested.

Anyway, apparently I need a site so Google can find me. I mean, it can already find my shit on Smashwords and other fine e-Retailers… But this site will be completely different because… uh…

Actually I don’

T'reka just wanted to learn. Unfortunately for her, her entire species
views scientific thinking as a form of insanity. And when she wants to
learn all about the various venomous, poisonous, and outright deadly
life forms on a land mass named Toxic Island, you can almost see why.
Little did she know that when she committed her life to the study of
this strange and hostile land, there was already a colony of monsters
setting up housekeeping. Now she’s face-to-face

Health update

For my marvellous readers still with me, I have a news.

Neither good news, nor bad. Just news.

There is very little that medicine can do for my wrists. And also, very little that they can do for my heels.

The Spurs I have are a symptom rather than a cause. They show that I have ligaments that are pulling on the bottom of my heels.

All I can be done, in both cases, is the liberal application of anti-inflammation cream, and

Hevun’s Rebel

Sahra was on the opposite side of the station to Ore Processing when it blew up. For a tunnel rat and a slave, this means nothing but trouble. But for Sahra, that’s just the beginning.
Her people need a Saviour to lead them to freedom, but no such person dare volunteer with the Masters’ guns ready to fire at all times. What harm could there be in doing a few things to help the Saviour
