Happy Indie Story, Part Six: What’s Next?

In this post for Dead Darlings, I discuss how to balance marketing and creating. Also, there’s a preview of what’s next for me, Flutter, Volume Two: Don’t Let Me Die Nervous, due out in 2015.

Sweet Moments, Dark Reveals in Flutter, Volume 1 
Review excerpt:
Flutter isn’t just a love story for the LGBT community, nor does it isolate the hetero-normative viewpoint. The ideas at play are relatable to anyone who’s suffered from isolation, from harassment, from the wastes of young romance and the looming threat of adulthood. The true enemy in Flutter isn’t a secret society or a bad parent — it’s the suppression of individuality in whatever form it takes.

Canned Air #50 Flutter

Canned Air is one of my favorite weekly shows about all things pop culture. Recently, I joined them to celebrate their 50th episode. We talked about comics, including Michael Easton’s fantastic graphic novel Credence, and our love of 90s alternative rock, especially the Smashing Pumpkins.

Each morning when I open…

"Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it." ~Groucho Marx
